UTV has offered to pay 29 crore for the distribution rights for the film Jalsa with Pawan Kalyan in the lead. The UTV offer is for the entire country. Allu Aravind has not yet made up his mind and will take some more time to decide his next Cinema.
Meanwhile Jalsa has shaped up very well and the Pawan- Ileana combination is expected to create magic at the box office.
The much-hyped Balakrishna and YVS Chowdhary's Okka Magadu turned out to be big dud at the box-office. This further helped Krishna which is directed by V V Vinayak. The film was not that hot, prior to release but the tables have turned now with the audiences enjoying its comedy.
Trisha who first time did the glamorous role also played key role in its success. Krishna also became a big rage in overseas that is a first time for a V V Vinayak film. And the big surprise is the rise of Sumanth's Pourudu. It now stands in second position. Sumanth made in roads into B and C centers with this movie. It netted about Rs 4 Crores of gross in the first week. Yet, in cities it moves on a slow run.
Balakrishna's Okka Magadu was written off by his fans and as well as general audiences as it lacks content. M S Raju turned director’s Vaana could not show off his magic this time. The film failed to attract the urban youth who have already seen such films in the past. Added to it, the grim climax did not gel with the multiplex audiences.
1. Chiranjeevi is going to make important announcement on 26th January.
2. Swamijis from Chennai and Bangalore decided the Muhurtham for Mega Party.
3. It is 7th April- Muhurtham decided by Swamijis.
4. A 24hrs News channel is coming up for Mega Party to support and convey the Party ideology to public.
5. The Party office will be located in Jubilee Hills.
6. TRS and CPI will join hands with Megastar
Also Genelia has a secret to share with. She was a great foot ball player and also played for Nationals. She was a State level athlete too! But her passion towards films drove her towards the "woods". Though she has got recognition in Tolly, Kolly and Bollywoods… Genelia prefers Tollywood to other languages.
While talking about her co stars Genelia said "NTR is a great dancer. I was surprised to see the ease in his dances. I was not able match up his speed many a time". Genelia acted with NTR in Samba and Naa Alludu. Ironically neither of the films worked!
Mahesh will be doing two films for this year but those films will be releasing only in the year 2009.
One film will be with Trivikram Sreenivas and this film Varudu- Vadhuvu Kaavalenu will begin to roll from April and planned to release for Sankranthi 2009. And at the same time Mahesh start working for Shekar Kammula's film from December 2008 and release in mid 2009.
Prince Mahesh fans will be disappointed as there will be no release of their handsome hero's film in the year 2008.
The sensational pair Mahesh and d Ileana of Pokiri are coming together to deliver another sensational hit in the direction of Trivikram Sreenivas to be titled as Varudu- Vadhuvu Kaavalenu.
Manjula, Mahesh Babu's sister is producing the film and UTV is presenting the film. The regular shoot is likely to begin from April and it would hit the screens for next Sankranthi.
Meanwhile Trivikram's current project Jalsa with Pawan Kalyan is completing its shooting part tomorrow(23rd January) at Annapurna Studios. The film will hit the screens on 27th March after post production work.
Producer Chatrapathi Prasad and Aditya Babu are to jointly produce a film with director Sukumar and Allu Arjun.
Sruthi Hasan, daughter of Kamal Hasan is making her debut with a Tamil film with Tamil hero Madhavan. Allu Arjun who watched the stills of Sruthi has showed interest to work with her for his next film with Sukumar.
But Tamanna is already signed for this project, we have to wait and see –what happens next?
He says that he is ready to act with grandson Gautam Krishna (Mahesh's son) if he gets a good script. "I am planning to direct a film very soon and if the subject suits to the image of Mahesh I might do that film with him" said Krishna. He also said that he wants to see Mahesh in a James Bond role.
If this film takes off it is needless to say that it will be a treat to Mahesh and Krishna fans.
Dr. D. Ramanaidu released the cassette and presented the first number to Prabhas. Rajasekar released the CD and gave it to Dil Raju. Speaking on this occasion, Ramanaidu wished good luck to the entire team. It may be noted that Ramanaidu mistook the title of the film as Pokiri instead of Ontari, which was immediately corrected by people on the dais. Highlight is that Ramanaidu too took it sportive. "This film Ontari will become a blockbuster like Pokiri," he said.
Rajasekhar said that he was surprised that Eetharam banner had shot the songs abroad for Ontari, which is first of its kind in its history. "This shows the commitment on the part of the producer and director towards mass elements. Generally, Pokiri Babu Rao is the sort of a person who would prefer a location like Singarayakonda for shooting a film like Meccenna's Gold. It's amazing that he took the unit abroad for songs." Pokuri Babu Rao said that he always filmed blockbusters with hero Rajasekhar. "Later, Raghavendra Rao did blockbuster Allari Priyudu, followed by my film Anna, which broke the previous record. The same thing happened with hero Gopichand, whose previous films on Eetharam banner – Yagnam and Ranam. The hero gave another blockbuster Lakshyam with producer Bujji. I hope Ontari will break the record of Lakshyam. If not could it break, at least it would level it," he said.
Hero Gopichand said that his characterization in the film came out wonderfully. He further praised the music director Mani Sharma for his superb work. Heroine Bhavana thanked the filmmakers for their patronage, providing her debut in Tollywood with a friendly unit. She hoped that the film would bring her name and fame in the industry. R. Narayanamurthy spoke in his own rebel's style, jovially pointing at the zeal of Pokuri Babu Rao for mass elements at "this stage of your career." Hero Prabhas too expressed his good wishes to the team.
Aditya 369 is a science fiction based on Time Machine concept and it is a unique film in Telugu. Directed by Singeetam Sreenivasa Rao, the film had music by Ilayaraja.
Balakrishna said the sequel will begin later this year.
Balakrishna started speaking to the media about his Sankranthi release Okka Magadu. He said he is game for experiments and sequels. But Balakrishna believes that remaking old classics involves big risk. That is why he said no to the proposal of remaking his father Late NTR starrer Yugandhar (which is remake of Amitabh's Don).
