- Major is based on the heroics of 26/11 Mumbai terror attack martyr Sandeep Unnikrishnan
- Major, starring Adivi Sesh, will arrive in theatres worldwide on June 3
Actor and writer Adivi Sesh is unfazed by the prospect of a box office clash with Akshay Kumar's 'Prithviraj' which is slated to release at the same time, June 3. Adivi Sesh starrer 'Major' sets it up for a box office face-off with at least two other big ticket releases, Akshay Kumar starrer 'Prithviraj' and Kamal Haasan's 'Vikram' which will be releasing in theatres on June 3. However, Sesh is confident that his film will emerge a winner at the box office.
At the song launch of 'Oh Isha' on Wednesday, Sesh was a picture of poise and humility when responding to a question on the topic. "I think practically speaking, we have the biggest film in Telugu, 'Vikram' is the biggest film in Tamil and 'Prithviraj' is the biggest film in Hindi but while there are big fish in the sea, we are the goldfish."
