Vikram’s third blockbuster Gemini came the next year in 2002. It grossed over Rs.200 million at the box office but by then, the trade began comparing him with long established superstar Rajnikanth.

His fourth blockbuster Dhool and fifth blockbuster Saamy both came in 2003.  The film Saamy, grossed over Rs.300 million at the box office and the film prompted director Shankar to notice his rising graph and booked him for his mega project Anniyan.
