Silambarasan had three releases in 2004. The first was Kovil, which deals with the relationship between a Hindu boy and a Christian girl. Silambarasan was praised by Malathi Rangarajan of The Hindu for acting with “restraint and maturity”. It was a box office success. Silambarasan appeared next in Kuththu, a remake of the Telugu film Dil. The film received unfavorable reviews but had a successful theatrical run. His final release in 2004 was Manmadhan, which he also wrote. The film was a major success and propelled Silambarasan to stardom.

Silambarasan’s sole release in 2010 as a lead actor was the romance Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa, directed and written by Gautham Menon.

“2021 will land up existing projects in his lap. His upcoming films Manadu, Ponniyin Selvan, and others will fetch him a good name. He also needs to plan a Bollywood film and try getting pan-Indian appeal as this is the best time to do so,” says Bollywood Astrologer Hirav Shah.
