  • Kamal Haasan is shown in a unique role that he never played before.

Thug Life is an upcoming gangster drama directed by Mani Ratnam. The scripts and dialogues were jointly written by Jeyamohan and Mani Ratnam. The film features Kamal Haasan in the lead role, with Jayam Ravi, Trisha, Dulquer Salmaan, Abhirami, Nasser, and others in prominent roles. The film was bankrolled by Raaj Kamal Films International, Madras Talkies, and Red Giant Movies. Isai Puyal AR Rahman composed the music and background scores.

After 35 years, the evergreen combo Kamal Haasan and Mani Ratnam joined hands together in KH234 (Thug Life) after the Nayakan movie in 1987. The title of the film was unveiled on November 6, 2023, by Kamal Haasan at 5 PM on his social media page.


Trisha is going to share the screen with Kamal Haasan for the third time after Thoonga Vanam and Manmadhan Ambu. The crowd is eagerly waiting for Kamal Haasan, Jayam Ravi, and Dulquer Salmaan to share the screen for the first time. The makers recently released the promo of STR seen driving a patrol car in a desert and firing his gun. Based on the analysis, he might portray himself as a police officer.
