Why Kushi is important for Vijay, Samantha
Kushi is a significant film for both Vijay and Samantha as their last big-budget releases didn't perform at the box office. Vijay had made his Hindi film debut with Liger, opposite Ananya Panday, last year but it was given a thumbs down from the critics as well as the moviegoers. Samantha's much-anticipated film Shaakuntalam also did not perform as per the expectations of the makers despite heavy VFX.
Apart from Kushi, Vijay also has Gowtam Tinnanuri's new film, tentatively titled VD 12, with Sreeleela. Samantha has also wrapped her web series, the Indian leg of Russo Brothers' action series Citadel with Varun Dhawan. It has been created by Raj and DK and will stream on Amazon Prime Video.
