    The third schedule of Thug Life was recently wrapped up in Puducherry. The Kerala schedule is set to begin soon. About 60% of the shoot for the movie has been completed in over 40 days. Reports indicate that the makers aim to wrap up the entire shooting by August and begin post-production work soon after. If everything goes as scheduled, the makers are eyeing a December 2024 release.

    Actors Silambarasan, Ashok Selvan, and others were part of the third schedule.

He has reportedly replaced Jayam Ravi, who was initially cast in the film but backed out.
