Nenu Tanu Aame : Madhavan’s Telugu debut

Madhavan’s Telugu debut, Nenu Tanu Aame (earlier titled Adi Oka Idhi Le) is now in the post production stage. Previously, Madhavan’s fans would recollect that Nenu Tanu Aame, was titled Leelai in Tamil and that title also has been changed to Naan Aval Adhu. Directed by Kona Venkat, Nenu Tanu Aame is Storm Pictures’ debut production in Telugu. Earlier, this movie was to have been produced by Ram Gopal Varma Productions, but for some obscure reason, this project was dropped, only to be taken up by Storm Pictures.

R. Madhavan , Sada, Shamita Shetty are in the lead roles with Sunil Varma , Vizag Prasad and Sayaji Shinde in the supporting cast. Music is composed by R. P. Patnaik and G. V. Prakash. The biggest highlight of the film is that this is Madhavan’s entry into Telugu films with a ‘straight’ Telugu film.This is also the directorial debut of the famous writer, Kona Venkat.

This will also be Shamita Shetty’s (Shilpa Shetty’s sister) Telugu debut. With all these firsts to its credit, the movie has a lot to live up to and will surely make its money as the curiosity factor will be at fever pitch. The dubbing, background score and sound effects part of the post production phase has been wrapped and the final mixing is in progress. The audio launch will be held on 27th August at Taj Banjara in Hyderabad. The film is slated to hit theatres in September 2008.

Rajamouli to concentrate on small budget films

Successful director SS Rajamouli made his debut with ‘Student No. 1’ and earned good marks by making the film a hit. His next film, ‘Simhadri’ again with the same hero, was proved to be a blockbuster. From then onwards there is no looking back for him. He continued to bring out films which are hits successively and successfully. He had directed heroes like NTR, Prabhas, Raviteja and Ram Charan Teja. There was an impression among the industry circles as well as the audiences that a film with Rajamouli behind the camera would be a heavy budget movie. So, Rajamouli openly announced that he would concentrate more on doing small budget films from now on. However, he says, ‘I will do one heavy budget film and immediately a small film. Not only I direct small films but also produce such films on our own banner. If there are small budget films which turn successful, the industry would survive for long and everybody who were depending on the film industry would be happy. I started my career with a small budget movie, so I very well know the value of a small budget film.’

Chiranjeevi to meet YSR and Chandra Babu

The itinerary of filmstar Chiranjeevi is all packed. As head of a political party, he will meet the Chief Minister, Dr Y.S. Rajasekar Reddy, the former Chief Minister, Mr N. Chandrababu Naidu, and the Governor, Mr N.D. Tiwari, in a couple of days. Political leaders wondered what would be the topic of discussion between them.

There has been no such courtesy meetings between political party heads till date in the state. Chiranjeevi’s office phoned Mr Chandrababu Naidu office on Monday to inform him of this. But as both leaders are busy with their pre-decided schedule a meeting could not be materialized. Meanwhile, Chiranjeevi will meet the Governor, Mr Tiwari, before meeting any other political leader. "It would be a courtesy meeting. As I decided to join politics, it would be a nice gesture to meet leaders of other political parties," Chiranjeevi observed. Both Chiranjeevi and Mr Naidu are good friends for a long time and wives of both the leaders also enjoy regular meetings.

On Tuesday, some more people joined the star’s party. Freedom fighter Sardar Gouthu Lachhanna’s daughter Ms Jhansi, TRS leader Jannu Jakaraiah joined the party. A batch of doctors led by Dr Noorjahan from Mahabubnagar district also took party membership. Resigned MP Ch Harirama Jogaiah formally joined the party in the presence of Chiranjeevi. The film star welcomed the veteran leader and said the party would utilise his experience and knowledge for party building.
