Simbu plays a 60-year-old in AAA

Simbu is an actor who never ceases to spring a surprise! Even as he was playing a lover boy in Gautham Vasudev Menon’s Achcham Yenbadhu Madamaiyada, he announced his next Anbanavan Asaradhavan Adangadhavan with Adhik Ravichandran of Trisha Ilanna Nayanthara fame. In the film, the former will be seen in triple roles. During the first schedule, scenes with one of the three characters named ‘Madurai Michael’, were shot in Dindigul extensively. Recently, the name of one of his other avatars has been revealed — ‘Ashwin Thatha’ which will see STR essaying a 60-year-old! 

Adhik also said that the VTV star gained a lot of weight (90 kilos) for this character only. He has also praised the actor for working hard to achieve the new look. The director took to Twitter and wrote, “Character name #AshwinThatha 1st time ever @iam_str plays 60yr old. Secret of weight gain n tnx 4 undergoing d pain fr dis role anna #Sirappu.” (sic) Sources say actress Shriya Saran will be seen playing her role opposite to Madurai Michael, and her first look posters, which were released recently garnered a lot of attention. Tamannah will also be seen in the contemporary portions of the flick. Yuvan Shankar Raja has joined hands with STR after a long gap for this ambitious venture.
