Obviously, Jai Simha team banked on the same season assuring another success for Balayya.

Irrespective of high competition in this Sankranthi season, the makers of Suriya's new film Thaanaa Serndha Koottam are releasing their film today which betokens the levels of their confidence. The film has been dubbed into Telugu as Gang. Directed by Vignesh Shivan, the film has emerging actress Keerthy Suresh in female lead role. Anirudh Ravichandar composed music.
