Anushka becomes busy again

Anushka’s living out of her suitcase, as she’s literally zigzagging across the planet for her hectic shooting schedules. Just as she completed a month long shooting in Russia for a yet-to-be-titled film being directed by Uday Shankar, she had to travel to USA. This time for the shooting of Chintakayala Ravi, which stars Venkatesh.

Sources tell us that once she’s back in city, she would be busy with the shooting of yet another film, which stars Gopichand. Here's someone going places, wouldn't you say? Let’s hope her films also go the whole mile on the box office map.

Will Chiranjeevi go for United Andhra?

The drubbing of Telangana Rashtra Samiti at the hustings has cleared the cloud and has set the platform for film star Chiranjeevi who was looking to take the plunge into politics. Party honchos, however, believe that now Chiru's party can go to the people with Samaikhya Andhra slogan. Though, they had earlier thought of a neutral stand on the Telangana issue, the results are said to have changed their minds.

"We have waited to know the public mood on the sensitive Telangana issue. How can we talk on such crucial issues without understanding the pulse. Now we've got clear idea about what the masses' feeling," said a close aide of the star. But some Telangana sympathisers feel that Chiranjeevi should have a tie up with the TRS to have a formidable combination to fight the polls. But the intelligentsia backing him feels that an alliance with TRS would actually harm the party's prospects in other regions, as the latter is known for its allegations against Andhra people.

With a clear message from the people of Telangana that they are not carried away with the sentiments and still respect political parties, which work for the development, Chiranjeevi's party would announce a crystal clear stand in favour of united state. The party is also finalizing its stand on SC's classification, which has become a major issue between Mala and Madigas. To strike a right balanced chord, party intellectuals are discussing with several SC leaders.

Top 5 movies this week

The release of Bujjigadu and Pandurangadu in the space of one week has improved the box office collections considerably. The week on the whole was okay and the coming weeks also look promising in terms of box office collections.

1. Pandurangadu
The film opened on a rather dull note with little hype and poor pre-release publicity. But Balakrishna's brilliant performance, particularly in the second half and his role as lord Krishna are a big draw. The added glamour of Sneha and Tabu and some good music by Keeravani make the film worth watching.

2. Bujjigadu
Bujjigadu made in Chennai opened to a lot of hype and expectations. Prabhas was desperately looking for a big hit. The film's big draw are Prabhas, Puri, Mohan Babu and of course Trisha. Prabhas looks good in his new style and he has also done a great job in the fights and dances.

3. Kantri
NTR's Kanthri has everything new looks for in a NTR film. Director Meher Ramesh unveiled a new look NTR in the film. The action of NTR, Hansika Motwani's charms and Prakash Raj's villainy are the main highlights of the film. It sits in position-3 of the toppers list.

4. Parugu
The Dil Raju and Bommarillu Bhaskar film 'Parugu' starring Allu Arjun and Sheela in the lead roles opened to some mixed talk but slowly picked up. The box office collections are dipping and the film is slowly running out of steam. It sits in position-4 as of now.

5. Jalsa
