The Suriya starrer Thaana Serntha Kootam, which was a Pongal release this year, is racing towards the Rs 100 crore club.

According to trade reports, the film has collected Rs 90 crore during its 10-day run at the box office worldwide. In Tamil Nadu alone, it has collected Rs 42.3 crore, report sources. While the film grossed Rs 67.50 crore in India, the collections stood at Rs 22.50 crore from overseas.

With positive word of mouth spreading about the film, the collections are expected to go up further. Directed by Vignesh Shivan, the film stars Suriya and Keerthy Suresh as the lead pair. Karthik, RJ Balaji and Baahubali star Ramya Krishnan also play important roles in the movie. Others in the star cast include Senthil, Nandha, Suresh Chandra Menon, Sivasankar, Sathyan, and Vinodhini Vaidyanathan.

Anirudh Ravichander has composed the soundtrack and BGM for this heist film with Dinesh Krishnan cranking the camera and A Sreekar Prasad editing it. Produced by KE Gnanavel Raja under his banner Studio Green, the film is based on the Bollywood hit movie Special 26, which had Akshay Kumar in the lead role.

Thaana Serntha Kootam was released in Telugu as well under the title Gang and is doing well in Andhra and Telangana regions. Interestingly, Suriya dubbed in Telugu for the first time in his career. While the film is doing well at the theatres, it may be mentioned here that its pre-release business shattered some earlier records.

Promoted as a perfect festival film that the entire family can watch in the theatre, the film’s collection at the box office proves just that. The film was appreciated by the Censor Board officials for not including any smoking or drinking scenes, Suriya said prior to its release.

Suriya is gearing up for his next with director Selvaraghavan; the film was launched recently and the team is set to kick off the shooting from February. Meanwhile, he will join hands with filmmaker KV Anand for the third time later this year. This film will go on the floors after he wraps up the yet-untitled Selvaraghavan project.

Anand and Suriya have previously worked together in Ayan and Maattraan. Without divulging much information about the project, Suriya said he’s kicked about joining hands with Anand, whose last directorial was Kavan.
