Celebrating his birthday (February 3), the makers of Silambarasan TR a.k.a. STR's next film with Desingh Periyasamy released the first look poster of STR48. The poster sees STR in a fantastical avatar and hints at him playing a dual role. A fiery red dominates the colour palette as a devilish altar fills the background.
STR48 is written and directed by Desingh Periyasamy and is backed by Kamal Haasan and R Mahendran under the RKFI Films banner. The film marks the first collaboration between Haasan and STR. Simbu was last seen in the gangster drama Paathu Thala (2023).
