Maanaadu, the upcoming action thriller that features Silambarasan in the lead role, is one of the most-awaited Tamil films of 2021. The release of the project, which marks Simbu's first collaboration with director Venkat Prabhu was wrapped up a couple of months back. As per the latest reports, the makers are now planning to release Maanaadu on Ayudha Pooja (October 14, 2021).
Even though the Silambarasan-starrer was originally planned for a Summer 2021 release, it was delayed due to the novel Coronavirus pandemic. However, the makers have decided not to go the OTT way and want to wait till the theatres reopen. If things go as planned and theatres reopen, Maanaadu will be released as a Ayudha Pooja special release this year.
