The action scenes were filmed in Hong Kong recently. NTR is playing a mass role Kranthi for this film and second heroine is yet to be named. The film is planned for summer release. Manisharma is composing the music.
Chiranjeevi said he was occupied with rituals following the death of his father Venkata Rao. He was speaking after performing the 11th day ceremonies. Significantly, Chiranjeevi, his brother Pavan Kalyan and his brother-in-law Allu Aravind spoke for the first time on politics.
Asked if there was political space for a new party now, Mr Aravind, who is considered Chiranjeevi’s top adviser, said: “We see a different reason. There is sufficient space in the minds of the people.” Confirming that Chiranjeevi would be floating his own party, Mr Aravind said, “We have reached the station and are waiting on the platform. The train has to come and we will board it.” “We will not board a train which is already there, we will wait for our train,” he said.
“Chiranjeevi will certainly make his announcement in the near future, you can read that in his statement, some contemplation towards that (entry into politics) is indicated,” Mr Aravind said.
Chiranjeevi younger brother and actor Pavan Kalyan said that he would support his brother. “He (Chiranjeevi) is already doing social service in a big way, but that is not sufficient according to the people and his fans. They are expecting something more.”
Pavan Kalyan denied reports in a section of the press quoting Bahujan Samaj Party state president N. Surya Prakash as saying that he would join the BSP. “I never met him, I have never talked to him, how can he say that I am joining BSP,” Pavan Kalyan said. Among those who attended 11th day ceremonies were Union minister Dasari Narayana Rao, government adviser Dr K.V.P. Ramachandra Rao, Mr Ch. Hari Rama Jogayya, MP, legislators Daggubati Venkateswara Rao, Kottapalli Subbarayudu, Kottu Satyanarayana, film veterans Dr Akkineni Nageswara Rao, Nagarjuna, Krishnam Raju and film producers D. Ramanaidu and K. Raghavendra Rao
After more than two years of absolutely no releases, and the fact that his previous releases had flopped badly at the box office, Vikram finally has reasons to celebrate.
It was soon after the 'Majaa' fiasco that he launched his 'Bheema'. The film ran into one delay after the other and took its own sweet time to get ready. Vikram said that it was because perfection takes time. Finally, on the 31st of December 2007, the film got its censor certification.
The Tamil and Telugu versions of the film are going to be released on Shankranthi day, this year.
Trisha is the heroine. Harris Jayaraj had composed the film's music. They had already made their way to the top of the charts and have now started to slip away too.
We wish Vikram the best with the new film.
This is not confirmed yet, but there are talks that Puri Jagannath has got serious plans of making a film with Mallika Sherawat! The acclaimed director had met the glamorous actress when she had come to Chennai for the Kamalhasan film.
'Dashavathaaram' is the film that she is starring I Tamil, with Kamalhasan. Puri Jagannath', it seems, had met her on the sets of the film and told her the story that he has in mind for her. She liked it and has accepted an advance to star in the film. But, due to busy callsheets, she isn't able to set dates aside for this film.
The story is a pretty titillating one- that of a young woman who is addicted to lust and how she suffers in life due to this.
Needless to say, with a story like that, you can rest assured that there is going to be lot of glamour.
Writer & Director Posani Krishna Murali is coming up with a film Aapadamokkulavadu and the film is releasing tomorrow, 5th January. Nagbabu played the title role for this film and Posani is confidenyt that the film would repeat the magic of his earlier film Operation Dhuryodhana.
On the other hand, Posani suggested Chiru to come as Praja Sevakudu ( Praja Sevakudu ga randi, Praja Nayakudu ga Kaadu)
But later in the evening, some of the associates of Pawan condemned the statement of Surya Prakash.
Surya Prakash has clarified and says that he has photographic evidence of meeting with Pawan. He is ready to release the photograph to the press at appropriate time.
Megastar's elder daughter Sushmitha is helping her father , She is taking participation in the discussions of Megastar's political entry along with Allu Arvind, Nagbabu and Pawan. She is also actively participating in preferring the manifesto of his father's proposed political party. She is evaluating the flag design and party symbol
Sushmitha's husband is a Chennai based businessman and he tours worldwide as a part of his business. So Sushmitha is spending the time with her father whenever her husband goes for a business trip.
It is also heard that Sushmitha decided to give moral support to her father Chiru by staying with him ,as her younger sister Srija eloped with her boyfriend.
Sushmitha worked as costume designer to Chiru for his films before her marriage. Now she is designing the Chiru's political Party Flag and Symbol
It is the latest fad among the film stars to do commercials. After all, it means lots of moolah and instant fame. Not that stars need fame, but their popularity rises depending on the brand they endorse.
We have had many south Indian actors doing ads recently. Telugu-Tamil actress Trisha is seen in a bike and soft drink advertisement.
So, recently Nayanatara too was approached to do an ad. Given her popularity in Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam, she turned down the offer saying she didn’t want to be seen too often on the television.
Logical, but we'll have to wait and see for how long the leggy lass would be able to resist the money. After all, isn't it all about money at the end?
A triangular love story generates enough curiosity among the audience as to gets the hero at the end. So, they are a popular genre even in 2008.
Swagatam is one such film which has Jagapati Babu, Anushka and Bhoomika in the lead. RP Patnaik and Dasarath too draw audiences that like family subjects.
However, given the interesting line-up of films, the makers have decided to release the film in the week following Sankranti.
Also, the post production work of the film is currently going on and it is expected to be complete in a fortnight. Shot extensively in New York, Rajahmundry and Hampi, the varied landscapes are expected to enhance the mood of the film.
