Surya's star power has worked big time again. His latest Tamil movie Anjaan, which has been dubbed in Telugu as Sikander, has got fantastic opening at domestic and international Box Office and the major credit for this response undoubtedly goes to the actor!
Anjaan has reportedly made Rs.11.5 crores (approximate) in Tamil Nadu. From the Chennai region, it has made above Rs.1.5 crore. This by any margin is a huge collection for a Surya movie. It has earned above Rs.14 crore from three main markets (Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Kerala).
The movie has opened up to mixed reviews. Anjaan was released on Thursday (August 14) evening in foreign countries and it has been released in India today for the Independence Day. The movie has opened big worldwide by releasing in record number of screens.
In the international circuits, Anjaan has raked in good revenue. The Tamil movie faced competition from Hindi movie Singham Returns. The Surya starrer movie in the UK Box Office has earned Rs.41.59 lakhs (£ 40,859). There were seven screens, which are yet to be reported. In the Australian Box Office, the flick has minted Rs.22.86 (A$ 40,150).
Anjaan has earned a total of Rs.64.71 lakhs at the US Box Office in the first two days (Thursday & Friday).
The Tamil film has seen the light of the day in 450 screens. This is a good figure for an A-list star's movie in the state. It is facing competition from small-budget films like Kathai Thiraikathai Vasanam Iyakkam, Snehavin Kadhalargal and Maayavizhi.
