Sankranthi 2018 is getting bigger with each passing day. Already Pawan Kalyan’s Agnatavaasi, Balakrishna’s Jai Simha and a couple of medium budget films have been confirmed to release during the Sankranthi season. Now, it has been revealed that three noted Tamil biggies will challenge Telugu films at the Sankranthi box office.
Vishal’s Abhimanyudu, which has Samantha as the female lead, has been confirmed to release in Telugu for Sankranthi. The action thriller directed by PS Mitran will get a decent release in Telugu states considering Vishal’s market here.
Talented Tamil superstar Suriya has joined the Sankranthi race with his upcoming film Thaana Serndha Kootam which is likely to be titled as Kaisar in Telugu. Vignesh Sivan is the director for the film and Keerthi Suresh is the heroine. As Suriya carries good craze in Telugu states, this film is likely to have a solid release in Telugu as well.
Also in the Sankranthi race is versatile Tamil actor Vikram’s Sketch which is in the making since a long time. Starring Tamannaah as the female lead, Sketch is directed by Vijay Chander. The film will simultaneously release in Telugu and Tamil on Jan 12th.
So, it is going to be a jam-packed Sankranthi season at the Tollywood box office.
