Hansika reveals her secret motto

Hansika Motwani is the happiest girl these days. She is busy both with Bollywood films and Tollywood films. Hansika says that she is grateful to actress Juhi Chawla for advising her to take heroin offers. “ It was actress Juhi Chawla who noticed my resemblance to herself and recommended me take up acting.

I am very grateful to her,” said Hansika Motwani. In spite of having a CA to manage her finances and a secretary and manager to manage her career, Hansika still gets her pocket money from her mom!

Rs 7 crore budget for single song

One song being shot at a cost of Rs. 7 crores. It's a mad mad world, you might think. But that is the truth. Rs. 7 crores are going to be spent on a single song and to think that we once deemed Rs. 1 crore being spent on a single song in Bhaagam Bhag as an excess. The man who featured in Bhaagam Bhag was Akshay Kumar and the one who will feature in this new Rs. 7-crore song will again be Akshay. The song will be part of Akshay Kumar's next release, Singh is Kinng. The movie is complete but for this song, which is soon to be shot in Los Angeles. The song will feature world famous rock star Snoop Dogg along with Akshay. Snoop and his troop are busy planning details of the video at the location and they are reportedly getting something very different ready for the most expensive song in Indian cinema.

While the Singh is Kinng has Rs. 7-crore song there is Kambhakth Ishq which is rumored to have a budget of Rs. 90 crores behind it. Akshay Kumar is certainly getting bigger and bigger. Time will tell whether he can live up to the astronomical sums being spent on his films.

Nagarjuna rejected srinu vaitla's script

Yes, Nagarjuna rejected director Sreenu Vytla's script, but not now. It was 4 years back. Sreenu Vytla narrated a script that was prepared by writer Gopi Mohan to Nag 4 years back, it was the time when Vytla was directing Venkey.

But the script was serious one and Nag asked Vytla to come up with script of entertainment & action.

So finally after 4 years , with great track record, Vytla narrated the script of King to Nag and Nag nooded his approval in the first sitting itself.

Sreenu Vytla says that the King is going to be blend of Nag's Siva and Hello Brother with Sreenu Vytla's style.

She fits perfectly for lead role

Life is great for Bhumika post marriage. Her performance in Anasuya has got her rave reviews. And now, with a woman-centric film titled Mallepuvvu, she has every reason to be happy.

Mallepuvvu is a romantic comedy and its shooting is nearing completion. Samudra is directing the film and music has been scored by Ilayaraja. The director’s on a high for roping in Bhumika.

He says, “Bhumika is a superb actress. I wanted her to essay the role of a feminist as she fits the bill perfectly.
We had initial doubts about her response, but on reading the script, she agreed to do the film instantly. What’s amazing about her is that despite her star status, she throws no tantrums on the sets and has no qualms about working opposite a newcomer.” Well, Bhumika, here’s another fan on your burgeoning list.

Producers bank on Charmee's assets!

Charme is equally popular for her Sree Anjaneyam type act and her Anukonanda Oka Roju style performance. After having proved her skill with heroine-oriented roles and item songs also, she's been in much demand all over the place! Producers and directors who don't want to leave any stone unturned in publicity, seem to want to cash in on this demand that she garners.

As a result, all her publicity stills seem to concentrating on showing her cleavage as much as they can! Whoever said performance alone can bring praises!

Nagarjuna worried with MAA TV

Yuvasamrat Nagarjuna, who is the chief of MAA TV is said to be getting afraid of Zee Telugu. According to some reliable sources of MAA TV, ever since Zee Telugu has come up with an idea to air recently released films which are 6 months old, Nagarjuna is spending sleepless nights from the past three months.

It is reported that in April 2008 many sponsorers and NRI investors were lured y Nagarjuna to invest in his channel. But it is said that since this channel could not attract the viewers in the summer vacations the TRP’s of the channel were only average during the summer season. The programs in this channel are failing to rise. The new set of reality shows like Bommarillu and others are failing to capture the audience.

Even the repeat telecast of Chiranjeevi, Allu arjun, Nagarjuna films are not at all capturing the TRP’s rise. More over till date only Gemini TV was in the competition of Maa TV. But from the past January 2008 Zee Telugu has taken up the charge. Its telecast of new films is making the viewers attracting towards it.

In the coming days many new releases like TULASI, DUBAI SEENU and many more are going to be telecasted in this channel.

Recently ETV Prabhakar who almost left the ETV job has been lured by Nagarjuna to host some shows. It is said that he has been offered a package of 10 percent profit as well as his regular remuneration of each show he hosts.

But one thing is sure; if at all Chiranjeevi enters politics MAA TV will be like an official supporter for him. Previously EX CM Chandrababu was the delicate darling of MAA Channel. Now the post has been given to Chiranjeevi Khandhan.

Kamal Hasan is happy because of two reasons

These days, Kamal is looking very happy. There are two reasons for his happiness. The first one is the collections of Dasavatharam. Though the film received mixed reviews in many corners, the urban viewers still support the film and the producer has already reached the safety point in recovering his investment. Reports say that the Telugu version of Dasavatharam is also doing fair business in the Telugu Box Office.

The second reason is, Kamal got enough investment to test his next novel project after Dasavatharam. It is Marmayogi, a historical film scripted and directed by Kamal himself. Pyramid Saimira has agreed to invest Rs.100 crores on this project and Kamal will make this film on first copy basis.

The launch ceremony will be held in Mumbai Grand Hotel on July 13 amidst Bollywood's top artistes and filmmakers,as revealed by one of Kamal's close associates. Hema Malini is going to play one of Kamal's heroines in this film and the other one is probably Kajol. AR Rehman is signed as the composer for this magnum opus.

S J Suryah recovered back at work

Tamanna has no plans to sign new film

Every day, Tamanna, one of the most happening stars in south cinema, gets an offer to do a film. But she says the roles offered to her are not very exciting or challenging.

Recently, she made news when she opted out of Telugu superstar Allu Arjun's film after signing it. The reason why the star backed out was because her dates had gone haywire.

Currently, she is doing Surya's Ayan and Anandathandavam, a film with a new hero in Tamil. Tamanna is also doing two films in Telugu.

The actress, who shot to fame in Telugu after her spectacular performance in Happy Days, in which she plays a cheerful, bubbly college girl, has not gone unnoticed in Kollywood as well.

The actress finds her hands full at the moment and she has no plans to sign up any new films.

Asin set to storm bollywood with Ghazini

Asin Thottu-mkal, in the manner of Hema Malini, Rekha and Sridevi, is set to storm Hindi films with Ghajini opposite Aamir Khan after conquering Telugu and Tamil cinema.

Ask her if she is set to become next big Bollywood’s diva from the South, and the actress giggles in embarrassment, “I’m a long way from getting anywhere near Hema, Rekha and Sridevi. But I feel hugely welcome in Mumbai. I don’t know why filmmakers are showing so much interest in me.”
Spirited, spunky and beautiful, Asin (pronounced Ah-sin) shows a sense of humour when she explains her name: “Asin is coined from Sanskrit and English. It means ‘sinless’... like ‘Amala’... without blemish. I hope I live up to my name in Mumbai.”

For now, Mumbai is her home. “But only because my immediate commitments are in Mumbai,” she clarifies. “I’m the brand ambassador for six multi-national companies and the ads need to be shot in Mumbai. Now there are Hindi films too.”
Fortunately, Asin speaks Hindi without that Southern twang that is even now so pronounced in Hema. “I’ve never used a dubbing artiste for any of my films, not even for the Hindi ads, and I’m speaking in my own voice in my first Hindi film Ghajini,” she claims.

“In these days of globalisation, I don’t think language is a barrier. I’m interested in films in Tamil, Telugu, Hindi and any other language as long as the projects are exciting.”
She’s aware her shift to Mumbai has given rise to rumours that she’s giving up on South Indian cinema. “That’s untrue,” says Asin defensively. “Whatever I’m today is because of Tamil and Telegu cinema. Why am I expected to choose between Mumbai and the South?”
