Deepika padukone to compete with korean, chinese actress

Chandni Chowk to China may have bombed at the Box Office here, but in faraway Hong Kong, it’s brought DEEPIKA PADUKONE a lot of appreciation. She is the first Indian actress to have been nominated in the Best Actress category at the 33rd Hong Kong International Film Festival, which will be held from March 22 to April 13. Deepika, who will be competing with actresses from China, Hong Kong and Korea for the award, is thrilled. “Considering the fact that the film fared so badly, it feels great to be noticed and nominated at an international level. I am privileged,” said the actress. She feels that it was her character Meow, who was from China and was quite adept at martial arts that may have aroused interest in the jury members. “The Chinese look combined with my martial arts training may have got me this award. But whatever it is, I am very happy,” she said.
Her co-star, AKSHAY KUMAR, has also been invited. Besides Deepika, Oscar winner AR RAHMAN has been nominated for his music in Jodhaa Akbar. About 300 films from over 50 countries will be screened at the festival. There will be 20 world premieres and 30 Asian movie premieres.

NTR RATHAM ready for road show from tomorrow


When Telugu film star Junior NTR kicks off his much awaited campaign for the TDP in Srikakulam on Thursday, he would try to step into the shoes of his illustrious grandfather and former Chief Minister, N. T. Rama Rao.

From using his own brand of “Chaitanya Ratham” made so famous by the party founder, donning his trademark campaign dress ‘khakis’ to emulating his legendary dialogue delivery, Junior NTR has been rehearsing hard during the last few days to relive his grandfather’s other role as a mass leader.

“He is bound to galvanise party supporters in his maiden campaign trail. They are sure to see and savour vintage NTR stuff, as Junior NTR is expected to make the most of his resemblance to his grandfather and come up with speeches laced with some of his powerful dialogues,” said Khambampati Ram Mohan Rao, campaign coordinator of the party.

‘Ratham’ ready
On Tuesday, Junior NTR took the ‘ratham’, a modified Eicher to TDP president N. Chandrababu Naidu’s residence in Jubilee Hills and held closed-door discussion with him for a few minutes. The ‘ratham’ has images of NTR and Mr. Naidu on either side while his own on the rearside. NTR’s popular slogan, “Society is my temple and people are my Gods” is prominently inscribed at the top of these images.

TDP sources said the film actor would campaign for 40 days continuously on the ‘ratham’ and hope to even break the record of his grandfather.

“NTR accomplished the task when he was 60, while Junior NTR will do it at the age of 25”, said Mr. Rao. In the first phase he would spend three days each in Srikakulam, Vizianagaram and Visakhapatnam.
