Suriya-Anushka-Hansika starrer ‘Singam II‘ has stormed the box office with its record-breaking collections. Rewriting the success story of prequel ‘Singam’, the second part has surpassed the former in matter of box office numbers.

But riding on the brand value of ‘Singam’ and Suriya stardom, the masala action Singam 2 has done outrageous business at worldwide box office.
Directed by Hari, Singam 2 stars Suriya, Anushka Shetty and Hansika Motwani in the lead roles along with Vivek and Santhanam in the supporting roles. The film has been produced by S. Lakshman Kumar and distributed by ‘Prince Pictures’ and ‘Studio green’ Studios. The film’s music has been composed by Devi Sri Prasad.
