Simbu has given a clarification on the alleged anti-Karnataka stand. Pictured: A look of Simbu in his upcoming movie Adhik Ravichandran Twitter Account

The first look of a character in Silambarasan's forthcoming movie, "Anbanavan Asaradhavan Adangadhavan," which is also being called "AAA," was released on Monday, Aug. 1. The poster showcasing Madura Michael's role of Simbu was directly unveiled online. [See the photos below]

"@iam_str as #Asaradhavan #MaduraMichael #Tharamass First Preview Poster @thisisysr #AAAfilm #Sirappu Sai Blessings, [sic]" Adhik Ravichandran revealed on Twitter. Simbu will be seen sporting a moustache with beard and will be seen lighting beedi in the poster.

The rugged retro look of the actor has impressed the audience and the fans of Simbu are saying good words about his avatar on Twitter. Many on the social networking site say that this is the avatar that they have been expecting him to sport. 

"AAA" is written and directed by Adhik Ravichander, who shot to fame with his debut film, "Trisha Illana Nayanthara." The movie, produced by Michael Rayappan, has Shriya Saran pairing up with one of the characters of Simbu. Mahat Raghavendra, VTV Ganesh, Rajendran and others play other significant roles. 

YG Mahendran has also been signed up to play an important role. It may be recalled that the actor had come down heavily on Simbu's leaked 'beep' song last year and called for strict action against the creator of the controversial track. It appears that his statement has not bothered Silambarasan, who has not objected Mahendra's inclusion in the film.

"AAA" was launched on July 9. The unit of the film wrapped up its first schedule in Dindigul recently. The second schedule will commence in the second week of August.

The movie features Yuvan Shankar Raja's music, Krishnan Vasant's cinematography and Ruben's editing.
