Anjaan (Sikandar in Telugu) starring Suriya in the lead role was released in 2014 with never before seen hype and promotions. The movie took a massive opening of ₹ 12 Cr on the first day which is huge. Movie lovers feel that the film is the biggest flop in Suriya's career. However, producer Dhananjayan who worked for UTV at the time has cleared the air that Anjaan gave the production house its biggest profit ever in Tamil movie production. He revealed that he has to thank Suriya and Linguswamy, director of the movie for making all investors happy. Anjaan had Yuvan Shankar Raja music while Suriya and Samantha played the lead pair and Vidyuth Jamwal & Soori played supporting roles.
