Chiranjeevi in a new avatar!

It's good news for Megastar Chiranjeevi fans. Soon he can be seen in a new avatar, the unseen! Yes Chiru can be seen in an animation film in the near future. An NRI fan of his is planning to make film on Chiranjeevi in animated format.

For this he already readied the budget and other essentials it seems. If this film takes off Chiranjeevi will be the only star from India who is featured in an animation film after Rajanikanth. Sultan, an animated film with Rajni is almost completed and is set to release in next summer. This film is produced by Rajni's daughter Soundarya. So after Sultan it is going to be Chiru's animation film to hit the theatres. Both the heroes are from South and this is definitely special news for South Indian cine buffs.

NTR follows Charan!

Ram Charan's first film Chiruta recently completed fifty days run and it is well known that this film is shot at Bangkok. A major schedule for Chiruta took place in Bangkok and the next hero to go there is NTR.

His latest film Kantri is also going to have a big schedule in Bangkok, as per the sources. Incidentally both these films are produced by Aswini Dutt on Vaijayanti Movies banner.

Kantri is the first film in Telugu for director Meher Ramesh, who associated Puri Jagannadh earlier. Chiruta is directed by Puri and now Meher follows his guru's path by planning a schedule in Bangkok. Hansika is the heroine in this film and in this NTR plays a typical mass character in the lines of Pokiri and Idiot.

Music of DON in Vizag on Nov 22

After a prolonged shooting and amidst no-news-heard-recently time, Nagarjuna's DON is set for its first bang. Its audio is releasing to an electrifying function.To be held in Vizag on November 22. It's Lawrence Raghava's second directorial venture with Nag, after Mass. He not only directs, but also scores music. If the music clicks, it would definitely be a field day for Lawrence, who makes his debut as music director too. Plus, the film is set for release on December 20 - the sentimental date of Nag, ...cause on the same date his film Manmathudu was released.

Mohan Babu to play Sai Baba

Dr Mohan Babu has just played Yama in Yamadonga. Now, he will be playing Sai Baba in a special role in Vishnu’s forthcoming film.

He has said that it will be a small role towards the end of the film. However, he was excited beyond doubt to be seen as Sai Baba.

He said that his production house had also entered into television production and that it was doing rather well.

It was their intention to expand into various media activities it was disclosed. Already, Vishnu had recently started an animation house to do production work for other clients.

Venki to do a double role in his next?

There are rumours in Tollywood that Venkatesh is considering a double role in his forthcoming film. Venkatesh hasn’t done a double role in the true sense of the term and naturally, the whole industry is waiting with bated breath to find out if the rumours are true.

It is being said at the Ramanaidu Studios that once the script is finalized, Venkatesh might formally announce the film in the coming days.

It would be interesting to see a top hero in a double role as it has been a long time since we have seen the top stars playing a dual role.

Nag’s last film in a double role was a dud and Chiranjeevi hasn’t done one in a long time. But all his earlier films have been hits.

So, we can only hope that Venkatesh too will manage to woo the audiences with a double role.

Pawan Kalyan to get into politics?

Hmm… the mega family is in news for obvious reasons these days and no wonder gossips are going hand in hand with them. Chiranjeevi's political entry which appeared round the corner a month ago is not even in heard in discussions after Srija's marriage. And this marriage kept Chiru silent but an unknown angle of Pawan Kalyan was made Public.

Pawan who was known to be an introvert is currently seen everywhere speaking his heart out, after this marriage. Be it deposition of his rifle at the Police station or the announcement of the outfit CMPF, Kalyan made it clear that he can come out and speak right from his heart if the situation demands. Recently he was in news again for his emotional and inspiring speech at Mega Blood Camp arranged by Chiru-Pawan fans.

There he spoke about the essentiality of younger generation to have political awareness and it is certainly new Pawan for you. The dais then is occupied by some political leaders with the ideology of theirs matching with that of Pawan's! And this led to a speculation that Pawan Kalyan might enter politics soon as his speeches and moves are highly suggesting it. Well, if Pawan takes this decision then he can surely inspire some of the youth with his ideas for a better society.

Trisha: Shocked but safe

Everything has been going fine until Trisha noticed something crawling on her. First she thought it is some insect but after closely looking at, she yelled out loud in fear. There are some leeches climbing on to her and the crew immediately came in to the rescue of Trisha. No harm is done, but by then Trisha already had the shock of her life. She didn't come to her senses for sometime and after the recovery Trisha insisted on the location change. Better late than never indeed.

Is it Chiranjeevi who is helping them out?

Well another scoop is out on Srija, Sirish marriage. Gossip winery is abuzz that Chiranjeevi who is operatingfrom an unidentified place is helping the young couple to settle down in life and get along.

Gossip zones murmur it is not anybody else but Chiranjeevi who bought the flat and gifted it to the couple. They also added that ample money is provided for their future needs by Chiranjeevi himself. The truth percentage in these rumors is unknown but the statement of Srija to the media this morning is well in support of this buzz. She said 'Dad is talking to me on phone at times.

He wished me on my birthday and also said don't hesitate to ask any help from him if needed. We will meet him once he comes back to Hyderabad and take his blessings directly'. By this it is evident that Chiru is in touch with the couple, if her statement has to be believed. Anyways the much talked about love (marriage) story is heading towards a happy ending and let's hope everyone gets back into their own business soon and start entertaining us.
