Producer K E Gnanavelraja of Studio Green said Suriya stands next to Superstar Rajinikanth when it comes to business of his movies.
Speaking to the media, he said, “Si-3 will release worldwide on February 9 worldwide. The picture has come out well according to a select group who saw the film at a sneak preview.”
He added: I am confident that it will rock as Suriya has the second biggest market business wise in Kollywood after Rajinikanth. He has also a huge fan base in Andhra and Telengana, where the dubbed Telugu version will open big.”
Meanwhile, following his legal notice, PETA sent out an apology letter to Suriya, albeit with a bit of sarcasm.
In a letter to Suriya, PETA’s CEO Poorva Joshipura, said, “If what you’re saying now is correct, please consider this a whole-hearted apology for implying that your pro-jallikattu comments might be related to the planned release of your upcoming film, S3 (now called C3).”
She added: “We know you are the founder of the Agaram Foundation and someone who helps vulnerable children, who like vulnerable animals, need protection from harm, and so we found it impossible to believe you would sincerely advocate jallikkattu, a cruel spectacle linked to both human and bull suffering and deaths- including especially the deaths of youths like the 13-year-old boy who was gored to death in Dindigul- and thought you must have what we would consider a more acceptable intention, movie publicity.”
