Varu Sandesh , the Happy Days hero is getting good offers.
1.He has signed a film for prestigious production house AVM . This film will be directed by Shankar Marthand, brother of editor Marthand Venkatesh.
2. And a film with producer MS Raju and the film is to be titled as Pellivaarillu.
3. He is already doing Kotta Bangaru Lokam with producer Dil Raju. Srikanth Addala is directing this film. Swetha Prasad, a new girl is making debut as heroine.
With Dasavatharam all set to hit the marquee in the month of April 2008, announcement on Kamal’s next project has snuck its way to the media. Going by the details of it, looks like Kamal is all set for another mammoth venture right after his ten-role act in Dasavatharam.
Titled Marmayogi, the movie is said to be produced by renowned Hollywood production house Walt Disney pictures for a whopping budget of Rs. 100 crores – not quite known to Tamil cinema yet. Walt Disney has roped in Bharath Bala of Vande Matharam fame for the production management of Marmayogi.
It’s a clash which has been going on for decades, but now it seems like the battle of grandeur and production scale between two superstars of Tamil film industry – Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan, is getting to its peak. When Rajinikanth signed up a 60 crore project Sivaji, Kamal finalized the even bigger Dasavatharam. Now with the former again coming up with the announcement of Robot, touted to be financially the biggest project to be conceived in Indian film industry, jointly produced by Eros International and Ayangaran, the latter takes his dream to the next level. Perhaps the celluloid greats are really thinking bigger and higher.
Coming back to Marmayogi, the movie will be produced in four Indian languages - Tamil, Hindi, Malayalam, and Telugu - simultaneously. Although the rest of the cast are being finalized, credible sources strongly suggest that Asin stands a bright chance to bag the role of Kamal’s lead lady. Hemamalini, who was last seen in Kamal’s Hey Ram, is also rumored to be a part of the venture.
Dasavatharam is in its final stage of production and Kamal will participate in the initial discussions of Marmayogi after Dasavatharam is wrapped up completely. So will Marmayogi serve enough Marudanayagam-fodder to eager Kamal fans?
He would be seen in a brief appearance as Shirdi Saibaba in the film.
Made under the banner of Sri Lakshmi Prasanna Pictures, Krishnarjuna is directed by P. Vasu with music by MM Keeravani and editing by Goutham Raju.
Nagarjuna has taken a big risk by portraying roles like an old man in Annamayya and also in Sri Ramadasu. But his gamble paid off and the audience found him to be amazing in his off beat roles.
Nagarjuna is now in a position where he can experiment, as he likes. This is one reason why he is even game to act in multi-starrers. Nagarjuna is playing a special role in Mohan Babu's film 'Krishnarjuna'. Vishnu is the hero. Nagarjuna has also decided to encourage young talent in a big way. Raghav Lawrence is one example. Nagarjuna gave a chance to make two films with him – Mass and Don.
Nagarjuna is now ready to give a chance to another newcomer in films. Prasad narrated a storyline to Nagarjuna and he liked it very much and asked him to develop it. Prasad has been working as an operative cameraman for many films including films on Annapurna banner. Nagarjuna has shown that he is second to none when it comes to giving a chance to newcomers.
Considering this is his first release in three years after the success of Aa Naluguru, he has every reason to feel a tad jittery.
Starring Tabu in the lead, the film also has actors Abbas, Raja and Sunil in crucial roles. Tabu though, seems all gung ho about her character in the film.
"I am really excited about being a part of Idhi Sangathi. I can‘t divulge any details about my character in the film except that it is very close to my heart. I have a strong hunch that this is going to be one of the most memorable performances of my career," announces Tabu. Now that is some lavish praise indeed coming from one of the finest actors of our time. Can‘t wait for the film to hit the screens.
