Kamalini turns hot!

Kamalini Mukherjee made her debut with the telugu film 'Anand'. She later went on to act in many films, but she always portrayed homely and somewhat de-glamorized roles. She has this girl next-door image and this has affected her chances of bagging roles with some young heroes.

But all this now set to change. Kamalini has gone in for a drastic image makeover. The results can bee seen in her forthcoming film 'Gamyam'. She will sport some of the trendiest and revealing outfits in the film. She plays Saravanand's love interest in the film. Allari Naresh is playing a special role in the film.

Shekar Kammula on big heroes

Director Shekar Kammula is a hotshot director. He is now easily the most sought after director in Tollywood. He gave a super duper hit with an almost all new star cast with 'Happy Days'. The film is one of the biggest hits of 2007. But Shekar Kammula is a very levelheaded guy and is not carried away easily.

Nagarjuna, Venkatesh, Mahesh Babu and several others have expressed their interest to star in a film under his direction. Shekar is exploring various options. He feels that directing big heroes is very difficult. They all come with a heavy baggage of a big pre-set image. They also carry the burden of the expectations of their fans. It is not an easy task to live up to the expectations of the fans of big stars, says Shekar. Balakrishna's film 'Okka Mogadu' is a recent example.

Shekar Kammula was presented with K V Reddy award in Hyderabad the other day. Akkineni Nageswara Rao presented the award to Shekar Kammula at a glittering function at the Tyagaraya Gana Sabha in Hyderabad. The Chaitanya Bharathi Educational Society organized the function. It is well known that Shekar studied in CBIT.

Chandrababu outdoes Chiranjeevi

Former Andhra Pradesh chief minister and Telugu Desam president N. Chandrababu Naidu has overtaken film actor Chiranjeevi in blood bank politics by launching a virtual blood bank on Monday.

The blood bank, dedicated in the memory of former chief minister and founder of Telugu Desam N.T. Rama Rao, is one of its unique kind in the country. The TD leadership has enrolled thousands of volunteers for blood donation through the NTR Virtual Blood Bank.

Governor N.D. Tiwari launched the blood bank at Basava Rama Tarakam Cancer Hospital. The party has already collected 50,000 units of blood and has donated 25,000 units to Red Cross Society. "Now blood donation is just a call away. Our volunteers are ready round the clock. The call centre can be approached 24X7," he said

Naidu, who has shifted his focus to social services after the TD lost the Assembly polls in May 2001, has procured blood tubular separators for the blood bank. Anyone who needs blood of any group and of any amount can call up 040-30799999 and the Telugu Desam volunteers will reach the patient to donate blood.

The facility is available in the remote areas also. People in Hyderabad can take blood from the NTR blood bank. In districts, party volunteers will be posted for helping any patient in need of blood.

"The NTR Blood Bank is the most sophisticated in the country. It is far superior to the blood bank being run by Chiranjeevi. Our equipment is the latest from the medical laboratory industry. Facilities are also there to separate plasma and blood corpuscles," said P. Srisailam, the state coordinator for NTR virtual bank.
