Tamil superstar Suriya used to enjoy star status in the Telugu circuit too. He was the Tamil actor who had good market in Telugu after Rajini and Kamal. That has changed now. With a series of failures, Surya totally lost his grip over Telugu market.
His films used to get terrific opening during Singam days. His market took a severe beating that his current market value is down to half of what it was earlier. Suriya's latest film Gang opened on a dull note.
It has managed to collect less than Rs. 1 crore share on its day 1 in Telugu states. It was affected a bit by Jai Simha, but this is a very low number compared to his earlier films.
Gang opened to better talk among Sankranthi movies and that should help it during the holiday period.
Tamil version of Gang opened to positive reviews and decent openings while Vikram's Sketch is getting underwhelming reports.
