Released in Tamil Nadu and Kerala, Silandhi did very well, so well that the producers decided to release the film in Telugu in 35 centres with the title Yera Gullabhi. Yera Gullabhi shares the same title as Kamal Hassan"s Sivapu Rojakkal, another blood-curdling thriller, which was also released in Telugu.
Another similarity that it shares with the cult classic is that both Sridevi and Monica had glamorous roles in their respective movies. This is the first time that Monica had a glam role on-screen which she carried off very well to the delight of the audiences.
The recent hit Silandhi, which got rave reviews from film critics and boosted Monica's fame sky-high, is all set to be released in Telugu, according to its director Aadhi. With a journalistic background, the debutant director did not settle for making a soft romance or family entertainer for his maiden movie but went for a thrilling, chilling suspense-filled flick.
