Michael Madsen is best known for starring in Quentin Tarantino movies like Kill Bill and Reservoir Dogs. Earlier it was reported that the Bollywood movie, produced by Kona Venkat, was titled Silence. The story is set in the US and is believed to be a crossover movie.
According to a TNIE report, a source close to the movie said, “This is going to be a silent film. It will release simultaneously in Tamil and Hindi. The movie will portray Anushka in a performance-oriented role. Madhavan’s is going to be an interesting character. Besides them, the project will also have an international star cast.”

Silence has been jointly scripted by director Hemant and Gopi Mohan. Music for the movie is by Gopi Sundar.
