The notion that sequels come a cropper at the box office has been busted with the success of Singam 2, says the film’s leading man Suriya.
Actor Suriya Sivakumar believes the success of his latest release, Tamil action-drama Singam 2, has managed to break the myth that sequels don't work.
He also says the movie's success doesn't belong to him entirely.
"I can't take credit for the success of "Singam 2". It was a team effort and in the process, Hari (director) and I proved that sequels can succeed," Suriya told reporters at the "Singam 2" success meet here Monday.
"Singam 2", which released July 5, is the sequel to highly successful "Singam". It also features Hansika Motwani, Anushka Shetty and Danny Sapani in important roles.
Suriya agrees the success of the film couldn't have come at a better time.
"I badly needed a hit. My last two films didn't do well and I was afraid that it might continue. I'm glad audiences made this film a bigger hit," added Suriya, who is happy that his wife enjoyed the film more than any of his past projects.
"Jo (Jyothika) watched the film four times. She enjoyed the film so much that she even applauded my performance for the first time," he said.
Directed by Hari Gopalakrishnan, "Singam 2" has reportedly netted over Rs.20 crore in the opening weekend worldwide.
