Nani scored a big hit in 2011 with “Ala Modhalaindhi”. He had got decent amount of following in audience after that movie. Nani pinned high hopes on Sega, the dubbed version of Tamil movie, Veppam. But the movie failed to make a mark at the box office.
“Veppam” is the debut movie of Nani in Tamil. Sega is the dubbed version of “Veppam” released simultaneously in both the languages.
Gautham Menon had produced the movie. He later went on to direct Nani in “Yeto Vellipoindhi Manasu”.
“Sega” is the debut movie of the director Anjana Ali Khan. She was a reputed ad film maker before barging in to movies.
The Tamil version of the movie, “Veppam” had fetched Table profits for the makers but the Telugu version bad fetched losses for the buyers here.
Even though, the movie did not do well at the box office, it had received good critical acclaim. Nani won the ‘Vijay Award’ for the best debut actor in Tamil that year.
