Simbu aka STR is taking his singing career very seriously and is emerging as one of the sought-after voices in the industry. Most recently, he has sung for the Telugu film Back Bench Student.


Though he had been singing for himself in some movies and rendering songs for his friends in the industry, post-Love Anthem, STR has emerged as a sought after singer by music directors.


Thanks to A R Rahman, STR started playback singing with a song 'Baila More...' in Kadhal Virus and Rs 5,000 was his remuneration at that time. And now, for his latest song in Kedi Billa Killadi Ranga, STR was paid Rs five lakh, according to the Kollywood buzz.
