According to traders, Surya is not facing any competition for his Diwali offering, 7th Sense. The forthcoming movie has got 400 screens, which is the second highest in terms of numbers after Rajinikanth's Robo, in Andhra Pradesh. In Nizam region alone, it is releasing with 150 plus screens that comprises 55 prints in Hyderabad. It is said that the actor and director AR Murgadoss' brand is working big time. Moreover, there are no big releases during Diwali, which has benefited the movie.
The surprising fact is that the Tamil version of 7th Sense has managed to get just above 400 screens in Tamil Nadu but in Andhra Pradesh, it has got almost same number of screens. It is because Vijay's Tamil movie Velayudham is also releasing on the same day. However, the movie, which also features Shruti Hasan, is releasing worldwide with 1000 prints on October 26.
Surya has emerged as an actor, who is highly popular not only in Tamil Nadu but also in Andhra Pradesh.

As a result, his market in the state has grown by leaps and bounds and the distributors have also understood that he is sellable actor in AP. Now for his latest movie 7th Sense, a dubbed version of Tamil 7aam Arivu, he has got a record number of screens.
