'Bujjigadu - made in Chennai' exceeded proposed budget
'Bujjigadu Made in Chennai' (BMIC) is the flick starred by Prabhas,Trisha being Directed Puri exceeded the budget limits according to film nagar sources. Its understood that as of now it incurred cost of Rs.22 Cr. so far which is quite beyond expectations. Puri charged Rs.4 Cr and Prabhas Rs.2 Cr. Mohan Babu is also acting for this flick. Prakash Raj was proposed initially for this role, then Nan Patekar was approached. He asked Rs 3 Cr for which he was ruled out. KS Rama Rao then got in touch with Mohan Babu for which he demanded Rs.1.5 Cr. Later he asked Rama Rao to cancel the proposed money part. So is Mohan Babu acting for free or is he taking any money for his services.

Pawan follows Nagababu?
Power star Pawan Kalyan is now in a very happy mood. He has now been rid of the long drawn out court case filed by his first wife Nandini. The court has struck down the case for lack of evidence. This has now paved the way for Pawan Kalyan to start his life afresh. He is now taking an active interest not only in his film career but also in other activities.

Pawan Kalyan is now assisting big brother Chiranjeevi in his plans to launch a political party. Chiranjeevi has now drafted Pawan Kalayn into his core team of planners and advisors. Pawan is taking care of all the aspects and also preparing a plan and agenda for the new party to be launched by Chiranjeevi.

Pawan has also agreed to star in a new film to be directed by S J Surya of Khushi fame. Pawan Kalyan will play the role of an honest and upright police officer who sets out to clean the system.

Pawan's brother Nagababu recently starred in a political film 'Apadamokkulavaadu'. The film also eulogized Chiranejevi and talked about his imminent political entry. Chiranjeevi is also planning a film that will pave the way for his political entry. The three brothers between them with help and guidance from Allu Aravind are slowly preparing the ground in a planned manner.

Amrita Rao says "I can't forget the day I went for the Athidhi show with Mahesh"
As we wait in the café of a star hotel in the city, she walks in, sans a frown or bored expression that some actors with newfound celebrity status tend to come with.
For even though fame and a handful of awards have come at a rather young age for Amrita, they surely don't seem to have gone to her head.

Settling down, and ordering a cup of black-coffee, she only shares with a smile, "I've been running around like a mad girl," referring to the promotional work in the city for her latest movie.

She looks her 20-something age, and only if you guys hadn't seen her on the silver screen, might've been wondering, "I have to find out which college she's in!" Alright now, before you get thinking...

Modelling for ad-films while still in college, and then onto Bollywood. Did you start out wanting to be an actress?

Not really. I always dreamt the little girl's dream of acting in movies, but as I grew up, studies became a priority. Only accidentally did I audition for an ad-film and got selected. That provided me the platform to get noticed, and thereafter, I took up the opportunities that came.

It was the Shahid-Amrita pair in Ishq-Vishq that really set things rolling, and since then, you've done so many films together. A special pair?

We've all grown up watching the popular on-screen jodis – Shah Rukh-Kajol, Juhi-Aamir. Today, when our on-screen pair is looked upon by the audience as something similar, it really feels special. Yes, it stemmed out of Ishq Vishq and we've been fortunate to get the right kind of roles since.

What does the success of Vivah and a Dadasaheb Phalke award mean?

It certainly means encouragement to do better work. When I received the Dadasaheb Phalke, I did not really understand the enormity of winning a national award. What makes it even more amazing is that I've never had any formal training in acting! I owe it to the role.

For many, however, you're still the girl-next-door. Do you feel the need to do varied roles to break this stereotyped tag?

I think the definition of the girl-next-door comes with a lot of preconceptions. You see, your girl-next-door could be witty, attractive, the life of a party - and so on. I would like to portray every girl-next-door out there. I take the tag as a compliment, as someone who can easily connect with the audience.

Tell us about your Tollywood experience.'s been an unusual experience,- speaking a language I didn't know, reacting to dialogues I didn't understand. But, people have been very supportive. Eventually, as I would write down the meaning of my dialogues, I picked up a fair bit of Telugu! Moreover, I was overawed by how cinema is worshiped here.

I can't forget the day I went for the Athidhi show with Mahesh (Mahesh Babu) and the crew. The celebration, confetti, and enthusiasm were a treat to my eyes.

Mahesh didn't have great role in Pokiri?

Pokiri- the film that created all time record in Telugu film industry was co-produced by Manjula. Manjula is the producer and actress and she is also the sister to Mahesh babu.

Now she is planning three films at a time. One will be starred by Mahesh Babu and One will be starred by Vishnu. And the other one is yet to be finalized.

Manjula says ' Mahesh babu didn't have great role in Pokiri but smart romance and nice music put together made a big hit'.
