Katamarayudu: It was a remake film of Ajith's hit flick Veeram. But unfortunately, the Telugu version incurred a loss of 33%. Katamarayudu's total gross is approximately Rs 98 Cr and the film did good business overseas. It also did some tremendous business in the opening weekend in Telugu speaking states, raking in a gross of Rs 45 Cr.

Singham-3: The first two installments received a thumping response from the audience. Surya and the makers of the movie were betting big on the third one too because Singham-2 pre-release business was around Rs 100 Cr.
