Producer Lagadapati Sridhar, who has acquired the rights of Sikandar, the Telugu dubbed version of Tamil film Anjaan, says that the movie will do for Surya what Baasha did for Superstar Rajinikanth many years ago. Both Tamil and Telugu versions of the film are set to release in threatres this Friday.
Lagadapati Sridhar is very confident about the success of Sikandar. The producer told IANS, "I can confidently say that Sikandar will be Surya's own Baasha. It will do all that for Surya what Baasha did to Rajinikanth. It's going to be a milestone film in his career. I'm proud to be taking this film to Telugu audiences."
Directed by N Linguswamy, Sikandar is an action thriller film. Lagadapati Sridhar said, "Surya plays a Mumbai gangster and the audiences are going to love him in his new avatar. It's an underworld revenge drama that revolves around friendship and love. The film comes with a good share of action and twists."
Sikandar features Samantha Ruth Prabhu, Vidyut Jammwal, Manoj Bajpayee and Dalip Tahil in important roles. The Telugu producer said, "I think Linguswamy has given the perfect commercial entertainer. All his films have done good business in Telugu and I'm glad that he gave me the rights of the film."
