In a surprising turn of events, Tamil star Vikram and director Gautam Menon’s collaboration seems to be creating waves in the Telugu film industry, despite their previous films like ‘Cobra,’ ‘Mister KK,’ and ‘Swamy Square’ failing to make an impact.

Vikram, once hailed as a versatile actor in Telugu states for his stellar performances in dubbed movies like ‘Sivapruthudu,’ ‘Aparachitudu,’ and ‘I,’ faced a slump with movies like ‘Sketch’ and ‘Inkokkadu.’ Rivals such as Suriya, Vijay, and Karthi seemed to overshadow him. However, the actor’s recent success in the magnum opus ‘Ponniyin Selvan’ has reignited interest in his work.Insiders suggest that Vikram is not resting on this success alone; he is also banking on his upcoming film ‘Thangalan’ to break the jinx in the Telugu market and regain his winning streak. Colleagues like Rajnikanth and Vijay have recently dominated the Telugu box office, collectively amassing over Rs 45 crores.
With the Vikram-Gautam Menon combination garnering attention and the Telugu dubbed version fetching a significant sum, it appears that the Tamil star is on a mission to reclaim his position and make a strong comeback in the Telugu film industry. Fans and distributors alike are eagerly anticipating the release of their latest spy thriller, hopeful that it will mark a turning point for Vikram’s fortunes in the Telugu market.
