The popularity of Tamil films in Kerala has inspired Tamil producers to release their movies in the state. The movies of Rajinikanth, Kamal Haasan, Vijay, Ajith, Suriya have a good market in the state as they enjoy a huge fan following.
Recently, Vijay's "Kaththi" had a grand opening in more than 200 theatres in Kerala. Following this trend, Suriya and his brother Karthi are set to explore the possibility of marketing their movies in the Southern state.
The latest buzz is that the film distribution company Dream Factory has sold the Kerala distribution rights of the movies "Masss" and "Komban" for a whooping amount. The news was confirmed by B Sakthivelan, the Marketing Head of Dream Factory through his Twitter page.
"#Masss & #Komban Kerala rights has been sold for a whopping amount. @StudioGreen2 @DF040714 @kegnanavelraja @dirvenkatprabhu #Suriya #Karthi", tweeted Sakthivelan.
The team, however, hasn't revealed the movies' exact cost of Kerala distribution rights.
Considering the popularity of the siblings, this move isn't surprising. Meanwhile, many in the industry see this move to be positive as more Tamil movies are hitting Kerala theatres year by year.
However, Suriya also makes sure that he visits the neighbouring state to promote his movies. Recently, the actor came to Kerala to promote his movies "Anjaan" and "Singam 2" and spent enough time with his fans and media.
For Karthi, this is a new move. His latest flick "Komban", directed by M Muthaiah, also stars Lakshmi Menon, Rajkiran, Super Subbarayan and Kovai Sarala in pivotal roles. The music of the film is composed by GV Prakash and is produced by Studio Green.
Meanwhile, Suriya's "Masss" is one of the most awaited films of the star. The film, which is touted as a supernatural thriller comedy is directed by Venkat Prabhu. The team recently released the first look poster of the movie, which received an overwhelming response from the audience. The film also has Nayanthara, Amy Jackson, Premgi Amaren, R Parthiepan and Jayaram in pivotal roles. This magnum opus movie is also produced by Studio Green.
