Anjaan’s press show was held on Sunday evening in Chennai. Suriya who attended the press show thanked the media for their support to him over the years, which helped him to reach his current position.
The actor further said, compared to his previous movies Anjaan’s collections have been phenomenal. To avoid piracy, they have gone for a wide release of 1,500 screens all over the world. Anjaan’s PR has issued a statement that it has collected approximately Rs 30 Crore worldwide during the Independence Day weekend (Aug 15 to 17).
Suriya says in general, the feedback has been positive but some people are deliberate in spreading negativity about the movie. He understands people have the right to voice their opinions, but he wanted to them be constructive and measured.
Suriya in an interview to a newspaper is quoted as saying: “Everybody is entitled to their opinion and I respect that. But as an actor, I try to fit in a sensibility that reaches out to newer pockets of audiences. For example, when Singham released, the A centre audience felt was that it was too rustic. Guess every time I attempt a minor sensibility change, it is bound to create such reactions. Ultimately, it all boils down to the box office collections.”
He said Anjaan was never meant for a particular section of the audience and it is for the masses and he is happy that movie is doing well at the box office and at the end of the day, that’s all matters.
