NTR to depend on VV Vinayak luck.

NTR and VV Vianayak's film will go on floors from 12th of August for regular shoot. Ileana is the heroine. Devi Sree Prasad is the music director. Kodali Nani is the producer.

The film is planned to complete the shoot by December and release for Sankranthi 2009.

Vinayak has the Sankranthi sentiment. His Lakshmi with Venki was released for sankranthi. His Krishna with Ravi teja and Trisha was released for last Sankranthi. Vinayak is hoping similar result with NTR's film for the next sankranthi.

On the other hand, NTR has some disappointed Sankranthi- his Naga was released on 10January 2003, and his Andhrawala was released on 1st of January 2004. Na alludu was also released during sankranthi.All this films are big disappointment for NTR.

Now NTR is purely depending on Vinayak's Sankranthi sentiment.

Asin bows out of Akshay Kumar's film

It seems South India's Next Best Thing Asin is determined to take her success-quotient to a high a level in Bollywood as it is in Tamil and Telugu cinema. No false moves no slipups for the stunning sensation from the South who is being touted as a blend of Hema Malini and Rekha.

Just recently, Asin gave the nod to three biggies with Aamir Khan (Ghajini), Salman Khan-Ajay Devgan (London Dreams) and last but certainly not the least, Akshay Kumar (Aise Ko Taisa). Now the news is, Asin is out of Priyadarshan's comedy with Akshay Kumar. Reason? According to her polite father, "There's a date clash with the promos of Ghajini."

However, the director Priyadarshan is more forthcoming. "The Akshay film is a three-heroine project. I don't think Asin would be comfortable with that. My producers Venus are looking into the matter of the heroines. We start shooting in November. So we've ample time to find the girls."

As far as Asin is concerned, the signal is loud and clear. This girl is here only to do author-backed central roles. No less.

Director P vasu speaks about kathanayakudu

Director P. Vasu speaks about the making of the much-hyped Rajnikant starrer Kuselan. S. R. Ashok Kumar listens in

Kollywood has seen it all. Films based on the protagonist’s fixation for a star doesn’t sound unusual. But Kuselan seems to make news everyday. Naturally, because the film star happens to be superstar Rajnikant and the film maker is none other than P. Vasu, the man who gave Kollywood’s mega hit in recent times — Chandramukhi.

Vasu, who was actually working on the script of Chandramukhi 2 before Kuselan happened, unwinds between hectic schedules to talk about the film. “Yes, following the success of Chandramukhi, I was scripting its sequel. Even Rajnikant had heard the outline of the story and given the green signal. When things were beginning to fall in place, Natarajan, an associate director in Malayalam cinema, suggested I watch the film Katha Parayumpol, a runaway hit in Kerala. The film revolved around a barber’s fascination for film star Mammootty. The minute I saw it, I imagined our own superstar in a film like that. The climax made a deep impact on me. I’ve never come across such a story,” smiles Vasu.

So the next thing the ace director did was call up Rajnikanth and ask him to watch Katha Parayumpol. “The superstar watched the film, but left without a comment. I was puzzled. But the call came the following day. He told me how much the film had impacted him and evinced interest in it. We met and discussed the nitty-gritty. But having said yes to Robot, he wondered how he would be able to juggle two films at a time. I assured him I would wrap up his portion real fast. He agreed — mainly because the film had affected him so deeply.”
Rajni as Rajni

Vasu, who can’t stop gushing about the superstar continues, “It was Rajni who suggested that K. Balachander, his mentor, watch the film so that his production house Kavithalaya could take it up. Balachander felt the story had a striking semblance to that of the superstar and insisted Rajni play himself in the film. That’s how things began to roll with Pushpa Kandasmy as producer. It’s set for release on July 31.”

The Telugu version, Kathanayakudu, will have Jagapathi Babu playing the barber. “In Tamil we zeroed in on Pasupathi. Rajni was impressed by his performance in Veyil. We wanted someone who has not seen the superstar in person or acted with him. Vadivelu plays a meaty role, and so does Meena (she appears in the Tamil and Telugu versions). Rajni’s heroine in the film is none other than Nayanthara.”

Regarding the speculation relating to the number of scenes in which Rajni makes an appearance, Vasu says, “It’s a role that will be remembered. And it’s not merely a guest appearance. We have seen bits and pieces of ‘Rajni as Rajni’ in Valli and Anbulla Rajnikant. I personally feel the scene count doesn’t matter. What matters is the impact a character makes and the message he/she conveys. And that’s where Kuselan scores. What sets it apart from such star-centric films is the treatment.”

Talking about the ‘Cinema Cinema’ number, one of the highlights of the film, Vasu explains, “The number will be a sure-fire hit. It features the icon in 10 stylish looks. Portions of the song were shot with real fans at the Shanti theatre. If you remember, A. R. Rahman’s first film was Roja, a Kavithalaya production; now Kuselan has music by the maestro’s nephew G.V. Prakash.”

When asked whether it would be a ‘superstar versus superstar’ situation with Priyadarshan planning to remake Katha Parayumpol in Hindi with Shah Rukh Khan, Vasu smiles, “Each is great in his own way. They have distinct styles and a major following. But much depends on the treatment of the script.”

Switching to a mellow mood, the director says, “Eight years after I did Uzhaipali with Rajni, Chandramukhi happened. Soon, Kuselan followed. I wish to do more films with him. But as you know, man proposes, God disposes. So let’s wait and see.”

Rajni appears in Kuselan only after the third reel.

There are a couple of scenes from Annamalai. But Rajni looks much younger in Kuselan!

Even after 25 years of their association, Rajni’s regard for KB is the same

Superstar wanted Livingstone in the film. He also wanted a meaty role for Vadivelu.
Meena appears in both Tamil and Telugu versions of the film

Did they fall in love with each other? There would be a key chain with the heroine and there is an interesting story behind it.

Robot is more grandeur than shivaji

Director Shankar, who opened a new market to Tamil Cinema in abroad through Superstar Rajini starrer magnum opus Shivaji, has vowed to give better shape to his next flick with the Superstar titled Robot.

The director camped in Mumbai with the Superstar for a week long photo session for Robot. His makeup and costume team also accompanied him during the shooting to get excellent result in the shooting.

Recently, there were two photo shoots of Robot, which were held at AVM Studios wherein Rajini was snapped in various getups. These photos will be used for the pre-shooting promotion of the film. Shankar and Ayngaran have decided to take the film worldwide like big Hollywood movies. The film will also hit the North Indian screens with equal number of prints going to be released in Tamil.
Shankar says in an interview to an upcountry magazine, "For a regional language like Tamil or Telugu, Shivaji is really a grandeur film. But Robot targets worldwide market. The film is differs in every aspect from Shivaji. The budget, making style and marketing strategy, are totally different and I'm sure the film will reach a new high not only in Superstar Rajini's career, but in the history of Indian Cinema."

Like his earlier film ‘Samba’, NTR wants to do a message-oriented film and at the same time, the film should have some satires on the present government. It is learnt that NT Rama Rao is planning to launch campaign for the Telugu Desam through his next film. The producer is making efforts to launch the regular shooting of the film at any cost in August.

Rajnikanth kulesan gets nod for release

Forthcoming Rajnikanth-starrer "Kuselan" has finally got the go ahead for its simultaneous release in Karnataka August 1, though many groups were against it, alleging that the Tamil superstar had made "anti-Kannadiga" statements.

The Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce (KFCC), while giving the green signal, advised the film's distributor in the state to release "Kuselan" with only 10 prints and in 13 theatres in Bangalore.

Some Kannada organisations had been demanding that "Kuselan" be released in the state only after a seven-week moratorium as Rajnikanth had hurt the sentiments of Kannadigas by supporting Tamil Nadu on a row over a drinking water project in Hogenekkal, on the border between the two states.

The superstar had joined the Tamil film industry in a daylong protest fast in April against Karnataka's objections to the Rs 13.3 bn Hogenekkal project that is expected to benefit about three mn people in two Tamil Nadu districts. Karnataka is opposed to the project, saying its share of the Cauvery river waters will be affected.

During the protest, Rajnikanth had apparently blamed Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa for the problem, angering many Kannada activists.

But Kannada actress Jayamala, who is also KFCC chief, said that the issue should not be linked to the release of "Kuselan", specially since producer K Balachander was a respected film personality who had contributed to Kannada cinema as well.

"One of our own members is releasing the film, then how can we stop the release? What we have advised is that he release the film following all the restrictions about prints and the number of theatres it can be shown in," said Jayamala.

Directed by P Vasu, "Kuselan" is a remake of Malayalam hit "Katha Parayumbol" starring Mammooty. It is said to have been made at a cost of Rs 600 mn and also stars actresses Nayanthara and Meena. The storyline is about a film star helping an old acquaintance.

Mahesh babu's 100 crore contract

Both political parties TDP and Congress are trying their best to woo film actors to counter Megastar Chiranjeevi. While Chandra Babu managed to get the support of Balakrisha, NTR and Kalayan Ram, Congress has been trying its best to use Mahesh Babu's charisma in the coming Assembly elections. Super star Krishna, a former congress MP, said he would continue to serve the party but virtually ruled out his son and Mahesh Babu taking a plunge into politics.

But according to the inside sources, Mahesh Babu indeed signed Rs 100 crore contract with congress party to support the congress in the assembly elections. Did Mahesh Babu really sign the contract or not? We have to wait and see. Rajasekhar and Jeevitha recently joined the ruling Congress and said they were ready to contest against superstar Chiranjeevi in the coming elections.

Chali 100° new movie to be youthful entertainer

Stories made on innocence, adolescence and the magic of youth always cast enchanting spells permeating our hearts with joy. This is the stuff that lives are made with. Exploits during our formative years stand in good stead molding our futures with lasting impressions.

Anita Udeep is currently filming an exciting Telugu film along these lines titled 'Chali 100°'. Having already made two films, 'Knock, knock….I am looking to marry' and the animation flick 'Gulliver's Travels' in English, it is now a Telugu movie 'CHALI 100 degree'.

'Fun-times' for just about anybody is life after school and college hours. 'What's interesting is that this is a high school film with hardly any classroom scene' says the young filmmaker.

The exploits of Surya, B.LO, Tanya, Rohit, Akash and Ralte on hostel campus would most certainly arouse the curiosity especially in the background of the dense forest atmosphere that prevails on their campus. The movie would be mostly on the lives of these young adults in their 12th grade. 'The film will have exciting action and humor laced with loads of twists and turns' says Anita.

Music for Chali 100° is being designed in such a precise manner that it plays different characters in the film so much so that the music part would synchronize with the emotions of the lead characters identifying with their innate natures.

The film is also planned to have a simultaneous release in Tamil titled 'Kulir 100°'.

Salute getting ready for release

The bilingual film ‘Salute’ simultaneously being made in Telugu and Tamil languages with Vishal and Nayanatara in the lead, directed by Rajasekhar and produced by Vikram Krishna on the banner of GK Film Corporation is getting ready for release very son. The film was shot in Hyderabad and Chennai. Vishal played the role of a powerful police officer, who was committed to eradicate the anti-social activities in cities like Hyderabad and Chennai. The film is basically an action packed love drama. Especially the action scenes that were choreographed in Dubai would remain a highlight of the movie. Post-production works are in brisk progress and the producer is making efforts to release the film in August. Brahmanandam, Ali and others are in the cast. Music is by Harris Jayaraj, story, screenplay and direction are by Rajasekhar

Maheshbabu new movie to go to sets on Aug 4

After a stupendous hit like ‘Pokiri’, Maheshbabu tasted successive failures with films like ‘Sainikudu’ and ‘Atithi’. Unable to digest the failures, the Prince had decided to take a considerable gap to sign the dotted line for his next movie. It is well aware that the puja activities for his next film to be directed by Trivikram Srinivas and produced by Singanamala Ramesh on the banner of Kanakaratna Movies were held long ago. Now, the story for the film was finalised recently. It is learnt that the producer is making arrangements for the launch of the regular shooting of the film from August 4. After the miserable failure of ‘Atithi’ Maheshbabu kept himself off from the media and now he is getting ready to go to the sets directly.

The combination of Maheshbabu and Trivikram was proved a big hit with the success of ‘Athadu’. Hence there were lots of expectations on their forthcoming film and the director committed to give another blockbuster with Maheshbabu in the same style. He reportedly prepared a very good subject for his project. As per indications, the film will have less action and more entertainment. Reliable sources say that Parvati Melton was selected as one of the heroines. However, the unit is yet to select the main heroine.

Mani Ratnam 120 Cr project soon

Kollywood is abuzz with news that ace director Mani Ratnam has signed the biggest ever deal in the history of South Indian cinema, to do a threeversion film in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. His production company Madras Talkies is supposed to be in the final lap of negotiating a whopping Rs 120 crore deal with the Anil Ambani run Reliance Entertainment Big Picture, for all negative rights for three languages. Industry pundits say that if the deal takes place, it will be the biggest for a South Indian film producer and director.

Mani Sir, as he is known in Kollywood (Chennai), has been quietly working on the script of this film since the release of his super hit Guru in January 2007. The elusive director, who never gives interviews, has been keeping a low profile after the demise of his younger brother G Sreenivasan, the moving spirit behind Madras Talkies.

The Hindi version will feature Abhishek Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai and Govinda in a negative role. Confirming that he has signed up for the movie, Govinda told TNN: "I am actually doing a film with Mani Sir. Isn't it every actor's dream to work with him? We met recently and I heard about my role, which interested me a lot. It is an intense film and my role will definitely surprise the audiences." Abhishek, who scored his first solo super hit with Guru, is all excited about this new untitled film, for which he has given bulk dates.

The Tamil and Telugu version will have Vikram doing Abhishek's role while Aishwarya Rai will be the common heroine for all the three versions. He is teaming up with his photographer from his early films PC Sreeram, the wizard of lighting in Indian cinema and his own 'discovery' A R Rahman.

Trisha teaches lesson to prakash raj

Prakash Raj was banned from Tollywood for troubling the producer by absenting for shoot schedules and coming late to the shooting spot etc...

Now he is the producer in Tamil and making films on Duet Movies banner. Now Prakash Raj said to have faced the similar problem from heroine Trisha for his film.

Trisha is doing a film for Prakash Raj and he wanted extra call sheet from Trisha to film a song, but Trisha rejected Prakash Raj saying that she has no dates. Prakash Raj approached film chamber, but there was no use. Finally Prakash Raj sat with Trisha and sorted out the problem.

Praksh Raj must be remembering his days of troubling producers?

Chiranjeevi Ready to conquer Andhra Politics

DID THE Telugu megastar Chiranjeevi stoop to conquer? Going by the agenda his party has set for itself, it would appear so. As we said in these columns, he is scheduled to formally launch his political party on August 15 (vide, “Congress cannot lampoon Chiru”). Chiranjeevi’s brother-in-law, Allu Arvind, released the agenda to the press, on behalf of Chiranjeevi (Chiru). At times, the agenda sounded more like an invective.

It said that the people of Andhra Pradesh (AP) had all along elected either the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) or the Congress party. But neither party could improve the lot of the poor, because at the district level, the two parties were under the control of rowdies. Rowdies generally usurped whatever the people of the country had earned by the sweat of their brow. They were not interested in the welfare of the country or the welfare of the people. They were good only at festooning the roads with banners and party flags, installing cutouts, putting up posters (to print, which they spend lakhs of rupees), daubing the walls with graffiti and collecting campaign contribution – all in the name of their party leaders. It resulted in squandering of public money, which did not benefit the people at all. So he had decided to enter the political field.

In the first phase, he would rid the political field of rowdies. Rowdies who had disrupted law and order and hence had to be behind bars had been roaming freely as ministers, Members of Legislative Assembly (MLAs) and Members of Parliament (MPs). Ridding the political field of such rowdies would transform the country into a superpower. On the industrial front, the country was making rapid progress. Amongst the richest in the world were many Indians. At the same time, there were many poor people who did not know where to go for the next meal. So, he would eliminate the disparity between the rich and the poor. He would transform Andhra Pradesh into a poverty-free state. The Congress party and the TDP had been maintaining that it was an impossible task. It was impossible for the two parties because they had exploited the poor people all along. But he could do it. To eliminate poverty he was drawing up effective plans with the help of experts in economics.He wholeheartedly believed that the people of Andhra Pradesh would provide him an opportunity to transform the political field into something sacred.

Chiranjeevi’s vow to rid the state of politicians-cum-rowdies has made several leaders uncomfortable. Many from the Congress party and the TDP have desired to join Chiranjeevi’s party. But the megastar has declined to admit leaders with criminal background. It is to be noted that not only his fans but also non-government organisations, government employees’ associations, student bodies, social workers, doctors’ associations and lawyers’ associations have been appealing to the megastar to enter politics and cleanse the government of corruption.

Sindhu tolani hoping for the best

SINDHU TOLANI seems to be enjoying playing second fiddle (no offense meant). A look at her recent releases will put things in perspective. She was the surprise element in the NITIN starrer Victory and just released Hare Ram in which she played a firebrand journalist. The critics had wasted no time in writing her off after the release of Bathukamma, in which Sindhu played a rustic village belle. With not many good offers coming her way, the pretty actress had to make do with the little that came her way. But it could all change if her next film goes on to be a hit. Sindhu is playing the lead Black and White, being directed by PHANI RAJ. RAJEEV KANAKALA is playing the lead in the film, being produced by RAMESH BABU. Touted to be a murder mystery the film is scheduled to release in August.
