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.
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.
Well...it'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.
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'.
Celebrities from both the film as well as the political world are set to grace the occasion what with Dr.Dasari Narayana Rao being invited to inaugurate the function. Justice B.Subhashan Reddy will be releasing the souvenir along with the chairman for Human Rights Commission of AP.
On the same evening award winning director Shyam Benegal will be felicitated for winning the Dada Saheb Palke award.
Mee Shreyobhilashi- the message oriented film is produced by CC Reddy of Visu film banner. Eswar Reddy is the director. Koti tuned the music. The film was released on 28th December 2007 with 18 prints . The film is being praised by all sections of the people. CC Reddy is adding another 18 prints to reach vast sections of the people.
Rajendra Prasad played the role of Prof Rajaji.
