He made his debut under his father's direction in 2002 and has since acted in several films in lead roles. He was a screenwriter for his two films, Manmadhan and Vallavan, and also worked as the director for the latter.


Personal life

Silambarasan's parents, director, music composer, actor, screenwriter and politician Vijaya T. Rajendar and former actress Usha Rajendar got married on 16 September,1982. Silambarasan Rajendar was born on 3 February 1983. He is the eldest of three children, his younger brother is Kuralarasan Rajendar and he has a younger sister named Ilakiya Rajendar. He attended The Ashram School in Chennai and completed an Audio Engineering Course. Simbhu has also performed for stages programmes like Netru, Indru, Naalai which was conducted by Mani Ratnam. He was a judge on STAR Vijay's reality dance competition Jodi Number One in its second season with Sundaram and Sangeetha.

Film career

Silmabarasan acted on Tamil nearly 19 films as a child artist in his father T. Rajendar's films. A few of them are Thai Thangai Paasam, Oru Vasantha Geetham, En Thangai Kalyani, Enga Veetu Velan, Monisha En Monalisa, Oru Thayin Sabhatham, Samsara Sangeetham, Shanti Enathu Shanti, Pettredutha Pillai, and Sabash Babu. His debut in movies as a hero came in the form of Kadhal Azhivathillai, a Tamil language movie. After his second film Dum, Kuthu[2] was released. It was his first movie which was a hit and that gave him an entry into the Kollywood film industry, which also ran for 100 days.

Followed by Alai and Kovil, Silambarasan then took a year break from acting to concentrated on the filming of Manmadhan, for which he also wrote the screenplay. He had done his first dual role in this movie. Simbhu had worked on story line, screen play and dialogues for the movie. Jyothika Saravanan was cast as the heroine. The movie is about a serial killer of women. The music was scored by Yuvan Shankar Raja. The movie became the biggest hit of Simbhu's career and ran for 275 days. His next film, Thotti Jaya [3] met up with the expectations at the box-office. For Thotti Jaya he sported a black beard in the role of an orphaned gangster who finds love.

In 2006, Saravana was released. After Manmadhan, he paired up with Jyothika Saravanan to act in the film directed by K.S. Ravikumar. The film turned out to be an average hit. Silambarasan turned director for his next movie Vallavan[4]. It was released on Diwali 2006 and starred him opposite Nayantara, Reema Sen and Sandhya. Fortunately, the movie proved to be a super hit at the box-office. His next release Kaalai was in January 2008, which was a flop at the box-office. But his next movie, Silambattam with Sneha, released in December 2008 turned out to be an average grosser. He became a voice actor after dubbing the Tamil dialogues for the protagonist in the Academy Award-winning film Slumdog Millionaire.

Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa, his 25th film which released on 26 February 2010, is his latest release in which he was paired with Trisha Krishnan. The film was directed and written by Gautham Menon with soundtrack composed by A. R. Rahman. The film is known for changing the media image of Silambarasan from a commercial hero to a new versatile film actor. Many critics mentioned the film had Silambarasan's best performance ever.

Silambarasan has been announced as the protagonist of the next films of N. Lingusamy, Mani Ratnam and Boopathy Pandian.
