Hyderabad: Surya Sivakumar-starrer Tamil film Singam 2 has been declared a hit, while its Telugu dubbed version titled Singam - Yamudu 2 has registered the highest opening for a movie featuring the actor in Andhra Pradesh. Both versions of the film released worldwide July 5.
While Singam 2 raked in Rs 9.25 crore on its opening day in Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Karnataka, the Telugu dubbed version Singam - Yamudu 2 collected Rs 3.75 crore in Andhra Pradesh in the opening weekend. Talking to IANS, trade analyst Trinath told, "This is the best ever opening for a Surya film in Andhra Pradesh, especially because after all his recent dubbed films in Telugu turned out to be duds."
Despite criticism for being over-commercial and extremely lengthy, Singam - Yamudu 2 managed to attract audiences. Reportedly made on a budget of Rs 45 crore, Yamudu 2 directed by Hari Gopalakrishnan, is the sequel to Yamudu. It also features Hansika Motwani and Anushka Shetty.
