No doubt, Vijay is a big star in Tamilnadu and stands only next to Rajinikanth in fan following. However, he is yet to make a mark of his own and star status in Andhra Pradesh. Both of his past two releases ‘Snehitudu’ (3 Idiots remake) and ‘Thupakki’ haven’t been successful in Tollywood. While the Telugu audience rejected Shankar’s Hindi-copy flick straight away, Murugadoss directed ‘Thupakki’ is a decent grosser but the producer incurred huge losses for acquiring the AP theatrical rights of the film for whopping Rs 15 crore (multiple times higher than Vijay’s market in AP).

Vijay’s next entertainer ‘Thalaivaa’ is gearing up for release on August 9th. The makers have planned a simultaneous Telugu release and titled is as ‘Anna – Born To Lead’. This dubbed flick will be releasing in 250-plus screens in AP and producers have been planing to rake in Rs 150 crore at Box Office with Thalaivaa and Anna.

Usually, Dubbing heroes wouldn’t dare to cross swords with Superstars of another language. Vijay, however, is not bothered about the presence of ‘Atharintiki Daredi’ in theatres from August 7th.

Trade Pundits say, Vijay can’t withstand the wave of Pawan Kalyan in AP and the territories where the Telugu domination is high. ‘Anna’ will just remain as another dubbed flick of the Tamil star but it won’t be a threat to ‘Atharintiki Daredi’ in any way.
