The project, which released amid humongous expectations, bombed at the box office, after which the star reconsidered to his decision to quit films. He also settled the loss of distributors who lost money after the movie failed to meet the expectations.
After a three-year hiatus, he made a huge comeback with Chandramukhi, and there was no looking back for the numero uno hero of Kollywood.

It is now getting re-released, and the news has sent his fans excited to the core. Many of them have been taking to social media to express their excitement.
