Producer L Sridhar, who has acquired the rights of the Telugu dubbed version of Tamil film Anjaan titled Sikandar, says the movie will do for Suriya what Baasha did for superstar Rajinikanth many years ago.

Both versions of the film are releasing Friday.

"I can confidently say that Sikandar will be Suriya's own Baasha. It will do all that for Suriya what Baasha did to Rajinikanth. It's going to be a milestone film in his career. I'm proud to be taking this film to Telugu audiences," said Sridhar.

"Suriya plays a Mumbai gangster and the audiences are going to love him in his new avatar. It's an underworld revenge drama that revolves around friendship and love. The film comes with a good share of action and twists," he said.

Directed by N Linguswamy, the film also features Vidyut Jammwal, Samantha Ruth Prabhu, Manoj Bajpayee and Dalip Tahil in important roles.

"I think Lingusamy has given the perfect commercial entertainer. All his films have done good business in Telugu and I'm glad that he gave me the rights of the film," he said.
