He may have been the last among Tamil actors to tap into the Telugu market but as they say better late than never! And even as Tamil actor Vijay managed to slowly enter this neighbourhood market starting from Thuppakki, it seems slowly but surely he’s reaching a competitive stature.
And now, his latest release Sarkar has become his top grosser ever in Telugu. The back to back success of Adirindhi and Sarkar says a lot in this regard.
Sarkar opened at a good time of Diwali when there were no other Telugu releases. This led to the film reaching a breakeven in almost six days earning a massive Rs 7.5 crore. It looks like after a huge market in Kerala, Vijay is seeping into the Telugu states too.
