Nagarjuna is my inspiration - says Shivaji

Shivaji tasted success with Mantra after a row of flops and disastrous films. Incidentally his face or name is not used in the publicity of this film.
http://www.apweekly.com/cinema/gallery/images/Nagarjuna1.jpg
He is not worried of it and says success is what it counts the most for him. Shivaji is one among very few heroes who are ready to act in combination films. He doesn’t mind doing small roles too. He says star hero Nagarjuna is his inspiration in this aspect. Shivaji believes that multi starrers are a safe bet and also provide scope for writing new stories. If all others think this way Tollywood’s biggest excuse, “lack of stories” won’t be heard again. Isn’t it?

Kajal looking forward in tollywood

Kajal Agarwal was in town yesterday for the audio launch of Pourudu. She was wearing a beige and black tartan dress and looked really cool. Must say, our Tollywood girls are becoming quite couture conscious these days.

Kajal Agarwal has acted in a tri-lingual film called Cinema which has been directed by none other than Bharatiraja. The film will be called Bommalatam in Tamil and Kaalidasa in Telugu. It has Nana Patekar and Arjun in the lead.

Though Kajal started shooting for the first time for it, the film hasn’t been released yet. However, it is scheduled for release soon. Naturally, Kajal is really excited about it as she got to share screen space with Arjun and Nana Patekar in it.

She gushes she was treated like a baby on the sets and well pampered by both the stars.

Tamana's Big Problem

After almost fading into oblivion, Tamanna has made a strong comeback in Telugu with 'Happy Days'. That isn't the only good news. She also has found an impressive film in Tamil.

The film's final stages of shooting are now on. Its music was released about a few days ago in a function that brought together all the leading directors in Tamil on one podium.

She has a very strange problem when she works in Tamil films, "Things are different on the sets of Telugu flicks. You get whatever you ask for. But in Tamil I have problems with the food. My body is not accepting the kind of cooking they do in Tamilnadu. So, almost all the time, I end up falling ill," she says.

Tamanna is now being considered for three new films in Telugu. If the films happen, she wouldn't have to worry about food incompatibility for a while at least.

Audio Songs of Sumanth-Kajol's Pourudu

Starring : Kajal Agarwal, Sumanth
Music : Manisharma
Director : Raj Aditya
Producer : Supriya


Listen to Pourudu Audio Songs at MusicMazaa.com

Negative writings on the film hurt me: Don Producer

http://musicmazaa.com/images/telugu/news/Don2403_1c.jpg
'DON is doing extraordinary business in all the centers. In fact, at few centers, it created records and stands out as the highest grosser so far in Nagarjuna's films. However, I noticed that a few media sources are doing negative propaganda on the film. Can you tell me how the film could get such good collections if the film is bad?', questioned MLK Chowdary, producer of DON. Don starring Nagarjuna and directed by Lawrence released a week ago at the box office.

MLK Chowdary expressed his happiness about the run of the film not only in India but also overseas. 'I am very happy about the run of the film but what hurts me is the negative scribing about the film in few media sources', said MLK Chowdary. He released the first week collections of the film and challenged that if any one could prove the collections wrong, he would quit making movies. The collections stand as follows - Nizam: 5,63,60528, Ceded: 2,62,34230, vizag :1,21,22110, East Godavari: 54,89,218 West Godavari:56,72,100, Krishna:60,57,700, Guntur:91,22,400, Nellore:58,00,000, Bangalore:70,00,000 Share, Orissa:11,00,000, Overseas:84,00,000.

Talking about the run of the film in Chennai, Harsha Pictures proprietor Harsha said, 'It never happened before. The film released in 5 theaters in Chennai. It was only Sivaji which released that way. The film collected 29,50,000 in first week. This is not just record among Nagarjuna's film but for any other films too'.

Chandra Sidarth Tabu's Idi Sangati Shooting completed

The shooting of the talkie part of Idee Sangathi, directed and produced by Chandra Siddharth, under the banner of Filmotsav, with Tabu playing the lead role, has been completed.Actress Tabu who is a famous name in Bollywood is making a comeback of sorts on Telugu screen after a long gap and her movie ‘Idee Sangathi‘ has already completed its talkie part. Speaking about the film, director Chandra Siddharth said that the film is complete barring one song which will be shot in January. The post production work is progressing briskly and all other formalities have been cleared. The film talks about the money minded nature of human beings and how in the name of getting wealthy they are losing touch with some basic values in life. Tabu is playing the lead role in the film and is flanked by Abbas, Raja and Sunil in the remaining cast.

2007- A year of mixed fortunes


urprisingly the year 2007 saw a decline in the number of releases in Telugu when compared to the previous years. There were only 84 straight releases till December 20. Add to this about 60 dubbed films released during the year, the list looks an impressive 140 plus. As actor Mahesh Babu said that ‘the future of the Telugu film industry is now in the hands of the young generation,’ the year clearly belonged to the young directors and stars. But most debut directors failed to hit the bulls eye is another story.

The pleasant news is that though the releases dwindled, the hits were more than the previous year. 2007 opened with a thumping victory, the super duper hit, Desamudhuru directed by Puri Jagannath with Allu Arjun and Hansika Motwani in the lead. Close on the heels came the Venkatesh-starrer, Adavari Matalaku Ardhale Verule directed by Selva Raghavan (Sri Raghava), a huge hit. The three other big hits are Sekhar Kammula’s Happy Days, Lakshyam starring Jagapathi Babu and Gopichand, Rajamouli’s Yamadonga with NTR Jr. in the lead. The hit films are Tulasi, Okkadunnadu, Evadaithe Nakenti, Operation Duryodhana, Yamagola, Athili Sathibabu, Aadivaram Adavallaku Selavu, Chandamama, Madhumaasam, and the recently released Mantra while Dubai Seenu and Dhee termed as above average. Mahesh Babu starrer Athith’ and Ram Charan Tej’s debut film Chirutha opened to fantastic collections. Nagarjuna starrer, Don directed by Lawrence has hit the theatres on December 20 in Nizam and a day later in other areas in the state. Chiranjeevi and Balakrishna drew a blank as both Shankardada Zindabad and Maharadhi proved damp squibs at the turnstile. Chiranjeevi received the prestigious Padma Bhushan and his voluntary organisation the Blood Bank won the State award for the fifth consecutive year.


Among the dubbed films, Rajnikath’s Sivaji created such an unparalleled hysteria among the cine goers and made record initial collections for any dubbed film in the past 75 years. The craze soon evaporated and none of the sixty plus dubbed films succeeded.

Technologically speaking, Telugu cinema made long strides and again to quote Mahesh Babu, “Telugu cinema today is ahead of other language industries in the South on technical aspects and content.” His Athidhi brought Hindi actor Amrita Rao to the South. “It is indeed the year of the young filmmakers. The redeeming feature is that each one of them brought a different theme and narrative style. When compared to last year, the content and treatment is more novel this year,” opines popular film critic Rentala Jayadeva.

Though 2007 is termed as the year of young talents, the worrying aspect is that most debutants and even some established young directors failed to click. The much-expected Yogi directed by the much successful V.V. Vinayak is an example. And the survival of any language film industry and thousands of its employees depend mostly on the success of low budget films. Chiding the way some of these young directors are treading with cinema, veteran Dasari Narayana Rao who always championed the cause of low budget films said, “The present generation should prove to the world that the Telugu filmmaker first makes the script ready and then goes to the floors. If any one of the young comes with a good script, I am prepared to produce for them.” One aspect the present generation the actors or the directors are forgetting is the importance of the producer. Most of them are treating the producer as a mere cash bag carrier. To quote Dasari, “There must be a bonding between the producer and director. It pains to hear that the producer has become just a cashier today. Instead of committing to pamphlet journalism, the media print as well as television should also come up with proper analysis and criticism for the growth of the industry. When they write or say that every film is a super hit then why the film industry is in dole drums? Some crib about other language directors entering into the Telugu industry. Instead we should think why they are getting the opportunities here and improve ourselves. Again some crib about spiraling costs of production. When actors who are not worth a million rupees for their job are being paid in crores, who should be blamed? A director can create any number of actors.” A basic mantra buried under star domination.



Sekhar Kammula and Krishnavamsy proved with Happy Days and Chandamama respectively,that with rank newcomers and not so established stars, movie wonders can be created. Both the films are big hits and Happy Days made under a four cr. budget and is expected to gross over Rs. 20 cr.

Whatever said and done, Cinema is still a staple diet for many in A P. The industry offers some exciting fare for them in the new year with Balakrishna’s Okka Magaadu directed by the much successful Y.V.S. Chowdhary and also Simran’s comeback film, Dil Raju’s Premikudu with Allu Arjun, Babu Rao’s Ontari with Gopichand-Bhavana and Nagarjuna, Chiranjeevi and Venkatesh’s next ventures to roll in January.

Genelia is not a Girl like that?



According to film nagar sources, an upcoming hero into top slot of Tollywood though he is married is having an extra marital affair with Genelia which is resulting in difference of opinion between wife and husband. Subsequently he left to Bollywood and did a movie which was a big hit. Now the same guy is in serious affair with daughter of a renowned cricketer. We need to wait and watch but one thing for sure Genelia is not the girl which everyone is looking at.

Trisha want to avoid Gossips!

Trisha has finally decided to become very serious about her image. She is now going out of her way to avoid gossips.

There was once a time when she used to go out partying with her friends after completing her shooting. This used to relax her very much. But her mother has told her to cut those trips short. These days, she makes it a point to return home as soon as shooting ends.

But it looks as if she follows all these guidelines only when it comes to her Tamil films. Rumors are on that she makes it a point to go on long drives with Ravitheja, the costar of her current film in Telugu. It also looks as if she has now brought the activities of her female fan club under control. Everybody is now lying low mainly because there haven't been any new releases from her.

Meanwhile, Trisha is more and more sure that her film with Nagarjuna is around the corner. We'll hear some confirmation soon.

Vishnu to interview Nagarjuna

The Krishnarjuna combination – Nag and Vishnu – are going to enthrall the viewers of MAA TV on January 14th (Sankranti Day). But, the event is that: Vishnu will interview Nag. The subject is Don. Vishnu will receive the questions from the viewers and put the same to Nag. This exercise is expected to boost the collections of Don, besides cashing on the festive mood, luring the crowds to the theatres. Interestingly, Nag took part in the promo of Krishnarjuna shot recently. Is this done in reciprocation!

Bramhanandam's Variety role in Mr.Medavi

Brahmanandam is known for his unique brand of comedy and that is known for all. He has done a variety role in the film Mister Medhavi directed by Neelakanta. After his famous roles like Khan Dada, Kaththi Ramadasu and others, now he portrayed the role of 'Gandhiwaadhi'. He is not a routine Gandhiwaadhi but different. One has to watch on screen and enjoy that difference. His dialogues in the movie would be a grand treat for the audiences say inside sources.

Brahamanandam said, "I never acted in the direction of Neelakanta and awaited something from him. He is such a type of person who creates a role as there is an artiste. He picks up artiste only when there is a role. Now I got a role to play and that is Gandhiwadhi. I'm not a routine Gaandhiwaadi. I would become violent if anyone disturbs non-violence- because I'm Gaandhiwaadi".

Inside sources are also saying about Brahmanandam's role and sharing that it has come as a wonderful rib-tickler.

Shriya from Tollywood to Bollywood

SHRIYA SARAN might no longer be available for Tollywood movies. She recently signed up a Hollywood flick named The Other Side of the Line. The buzz is that the ravishing actress has offers pouring in from Bollywood too. Of late, her trials have yielded results. She has already been signed up for Mission Istanbul. If sources are to be believed, she is also in discussion with biggies like YASH CHOPRA and RAKESH ROSHAN for their upcoming ventures. It sure looks like it will be sometime before we see her in a Tollywood venture.

Is year 2007 good or bad for megastar?

The year 2006 was a memorable year for Megastar.

1. Padmabhushan from Government of India,

2. President of India visiting CCT.

3 Doctorate from AU University and

4. Elder daughter Sushmita’s marriage with a boy from Chennai based business family.

But 2007 might be the worst year for Megastar in his life time.

1. Tollywood Vajrostavam was a bad memory in the month of January 2007.The legend award that was allotted was a big dispute. He was disturbed with that issue

2. His message oriented film SDZ was a big disappointment at the box office.

3. His lovely daughter Srija’s love marriage has greater impact on Megastar’s peaceful life. He was terribly disturbed with this love marriage.

4. in the end, His father Venkat Rao’s death.

Only happy thing for Megastarin 2007 is – Ramcharan’s debut film Chirutha did well in the year 2007.

Let us wish Megastar & Family- Happy & Prosperous New Year 2008

Ramya, Anushka wear the right look

Ramya, Anushka wear the right look
It is good to see that the industry is becoming very fashion conscious these days. There was a time when the heroines appeared in not-so-appealing attires at public functions.

Now, most of them have personal designers and take special care to follow the popular trends before being seen at a party or function.

So it was nice to see Ramyakrishna and Anushka at the 'Okka Magadu' audio release function. Anushka wore a deep night blue kali churidar with gold shimmer, more popular as the Saawariya dress these days.

Then there was Ramyakrishna who wore an Indo-Western dress with black tights, black top and dupatta, with silver work.
