Simran is back!


There was a time Simran ruled the Tamil film industry.

After her marriage and a failed stint in politics, Simran went missing for some time.

She has just accepted a "meaty role" in Trisha Illana Nayanthara with G V Prakash Kumar and Anandhi in the lead.

"Mine is one of the important roles in the film. When director Adhik Ravichandran narrated the story, I found the character very impressive, fresh. The shooting of my portions starts next month. I am glad to be acting again," says Simran.


The First Bench

Bench Flix, a product of Stone Bench Creations, is a distribution hub that will focus on delivering 'Reach, Recognition and Revenue' to independent and short film segments.

Its plan is to distribute movies in theatres, on television, as in-flight entertainment and on mobile platforms.

The first collection of six short films as a single feature film, The First Bench, will be released on March 6 in Chennai, Coimbatore and Bengaluru.

The six short films are directed by Karthik Subbaraj (who made Pizza and Jigarthanda), Monesh, Rathnakumar R M, Anil Krishnan, Gopakumar and Charukesh Sekar.
