I knew that Little Singham would be a runaway success even before the IP was officially launched earlier this year – but the scale of it has made me numb. My gratitude to the audiences who continue to shower their blessings on brand Singham. Little Singham has in a way expanded the loyal following of Singham brand even further by getting the youngest of the audiences to its fold.
