These days, Tamil movies are gaining more popularity in Telugu land. Producers are being able to recover the costs and also making profits. Few Tamil actors enjoy a star status in Telugu too and have a good market. With occasional Super hits, they are maintaining their popularity. Now, two Tamil actors are fighting it out in the dub market this week.
Ajith-Siva, the combination that gave Veeram and Vedalam in Tamil are coming back together with Vivegam in Tamil and the movie is releasing as Vivekam in Telugu. Soundarya Rajnikanth, daughter of Superstar Rajnikanth's directorial starring Dhanush who also wrote the film, VIP2 is also releasing this week. Also, Telugu straight film, Arjun Reddy starring Vijay Devarakonda is releasing too. Vivekam is releasing on Thursday and Arjun Reddy, VIP2 are releasing on Friday.
In all the releases, VIP2 looks to be a weak one as it's fate in Hindi and Tamil as been not encouraging. The movie ended being an average in Tamil compared to the blockbuster status of it's predecessor. Ajith, doesn't have a market on par with Suriya or Vikram in Telugu even though he is far bigger star in Tamil. So, who can win the battle with Arjun Reddy, Ajith or Dhanush? This question has made Telugu film lovers to look at this week releases with keen interest. In any case, Arjun Reddy is far ahead in terms of openings as the teaser and trailer seems to have connected with young audience. The movie advance bookings are a rage in recent times!
