NTR jr set to cause traffic jams in Andhra soon

After a host of Tollywood stars hitting the roads with vengeance, NTR jr is all set to join the bandwagon next month to boost the prospects of TDP.

He is considered to be one of the star campaigners for the opposition party and is expected to lure young voters. "He will be returning to Hyderabad on the 27th and his tour programme will be fixed thereafter," says a source close to him.

Interestingly, he shares one thing in common with other stars like Pawan Kalyan and Balakrishna. Don't let your imaginations run wild.

It is just that he will also be taking a 'break' from his shooting with Nayantara to join the political fray. However, he needs to be doubly active this time to make up for a missed opportunity (Yuvagarjana rally). Another star is set to cause traffic jams in rural Andhra.

Ram charan teja fastly recovering from injury

RAM CHARAN TEJ who hurt his leg while shooting for his next film is recouping at home. Was he hurt badly? "Nothing serious, it's a minor injury and I am recovering fast," he said. He’s spending his time by watching classic movies and also browsing through some self-help books. Unfortunately, even before this 'news' could sink in, another major mishap occurred on the sets of the same film severely injuring action choreographer PETER HEINS. We are forced to remind you about freak accidents that occurred during the making of Hindi film Ghajini. The connection between these two films is ace filmmaker ALLU ARVIND.
who has produced both. So, will this semi-periodic film turn out to be a blockbuster like Ghajini? That'll be interesting to find out. -TOI

Parvati melton lost the way because of her?

Poor Parvati melton! Though she won rave reviews over Ileana for her sizzling role in Jalsa, the ravishing beauty seems to be loosing out on Anushka. Sources say that our Arundhati has replaced Parvati in Mahesh starrer Varudu, the shoot of which will begin in March. Parvati was the first preference by director Trivikram, after he was impressed by her performance in Jalsa. However, with Anushka making waves after Arundhati, Mahesh is learnt to have preferred Anushka to Parvati. That’s again a stumbling block for Parvati, who has been trying to establish herself in the industry for sometime now. Better luck next time dear!

Katrina kaif role inspired by Sonia gandhi?

It’s going to be fun to watch Katrina Kaif in Prakash Jha’s Rajniti. We hear, Katrina’s role in this movie has been inspired by Sonia Gandhi, while Ranbir Kapoor’s role seems to be inspired by Rajiv Gandhi. Now, if Kat is going to be a political personality, too, she obviously is required to deliver long speeches to crowds, and that’s going to pose a great challenge to the actress. For this, we are told, Kaif has been attending voice modulation classes. Let’s hope she can get rid of that English twang soon. - TOI
