Naan Sigappu Manithan starring Vishal and Lakshmi Menon in the lead roles, and directed by Thiru enjoyed a decent success in Tamil. The movie went on to take neighbouring Tollywood by storm with the Telugu dubbed version Indrudu. Behindwoods had earlier reported that this dubbed version of the movie was very well-received by the Telugu audience and was among Vishal's biggest hits there.
The movie continues to delight the Telugu audience and has recently completed its dream 50 day run at the Telugu box-office. Vishal in his Twitter handle has thanked the audience, media, distributors and exhibitors for the rousing reception.
