Vijay's Jilla and Ajith Kumar's Veeram have been declared as hits by industry and the fans' of the actors. But here comes the news, which will shock the audience. Producer Keyar has declared both the films as flops as distributors have suffered huge losses.
Jilla and Veeram were released for Pongal on January 10. The films, despite getting mixed reviews, had impressed audience. Indeed, the movie bosses of the films had claimed that they were happy with the response from audience and collections that their films made.
Producer Keyar has said that the movie bosses have fooled media and public. The actual figures of Jilla and Veeram could be shocking for many. Indeed, he attacked media by saying that they carried and wrote about the films collections without cross checking or analysing it.

Jilla-Veeram Commercial Failures
Producer Keyar said that the truth is that both Jilla and Veeram are commercial failures. Vijay's film and Ajith's flick did not perform well in many areas in Tamil Nadu.

Keyar claimed that only Goli Soda has earned good profits not only to producers, but also to distributors and exhibitors. He said this at an audio launch function.
His Earlier Statement On Jilla-Veeram
However, we have to note that Keyar had appreciated both the films when released and had claimed that collections of both the films were brilliant.
But many are wondering what made him say such things at this stage. Is there any hidden agenda? We don't have any answer for now.
