SS Rajamouli talks about remakes and his next film

In a recent interview with TV9, SS Rajamouli says that he can’t make sequel to Magadheera as the script doesn’t demand for the sequel. He further says if he need to do sequel for any of his films, he will choose Vikramarkudu with Raviteja. His immediate next film is with Comedy king Sunil. The film will be a thriller come comedy movie. He says he is trying something different with this film. All the characters in the movie will be serious but audiences in the theaters will be laughing in this film. Bunty and Maryada Ramana are the titles under consideration for this flick.

There is still time for marriage says Bollywood top actress

Kareena Kapoor has been spending a lot of quality time with Saif Ali Khan. “I’ve been living in and out of suitcases. It’s so hectic,” she says. Bebo was with Saif in Jaipur for a day and a half, then Delhi where he attended the premiere with his heroine, but she stayed back in the hotel room. Her logic is simple: She didn’t want to steal Saifu’s thunder. Kareena also spent a day with Saif's parents the Nawab of Pataudi, Mansoor Ali Khan and his mother Sharmila Tagore.

However, both Saif and Kareena are dead against this constant insinuation that the only thing discussed at such family interactions is their
marriage. While it is deeply acknowledged that Saifina will eventually tie the knot, both are not in favour of shaadi talk all the time. “I got married the first time around when I was 21,” says Saif adding, “because everyone around felt it was so cool for me to be married. This time around neither Bebo nor I are going to rush into anything. We’re together, and that’s blissful enough.” Well the marriage pundits had better learn to hold their horses...

OYE girl says Siddarth is aspiring to be a director

With her faltering steps and windblown hair, she walked into our hearts and brought tears to our eyes when she enacted the role of a mentally-ill toddler in Mani Ratnam’s blockbuster Anjali.

She later drew attention with her subtle performance in Rajiv Menon’s Kandukondain Kandukondain, in which she played Tabu’s and Aishwarya Rai’s younger sister. Well, the little baby Shamilee is back — this time, as a heroine. She is all set to take the cinema industry by storm once again. Her elder sister Shalini had her share of fame and glory and it’s time for Shamilee to have her piece of cake as well. Her first Telugu flick Oy! opposite Siddharth has hit the screens and Shamilee’s performance as usual is being talked about.

“I play a conservative girl Sandhya who loves to live life on her own terms. It was an interesting character and it was great working with my co-star Siddharth. He was very supportive and explained every scene on the sets. I think he is aspiring to be a director,” she starts off on a light note.

For an actress, who has been facing the arc lights right from her childhood, second innings as a heroine would have been a cakewalk. But Shamilee begs to differ. “It’s almost a decade since I faced the camera. Although I have been a part of tinsel town for a long time, I felt as if I was starting all over again. As a child artiste, I never worried about my looks. But now, I am concerned about that aspect every time I face the camera,” she says.
But why did Shamilee choose to make her debut as a heroine in Tollywood when she has an amazing fan base in Tamil Nadu? “It was not a deliberate choice to start with Tollywood. I got many offers during my college days but then, I wanted to concentrate on my studies. I found the script of Oy! quite appealing and finally agreed,” she explains.

Coming from a filmy background, it was only natural that she ventured into movies. “I was obviously expected to carry forward the legacy. But since I never had plans to act, I really was not under pressure to perform. I am not concerned about the surging competition in the industry. I don’t want to be a part of the rat race.”

If there is one thing that irks this young actress, it’s the comparisons with her elder sister Shalini. “I agree that it is natural to compare us, especially since we are in the same field. Expectations also increase. But let me tell you that I have my own identity too,” she rues.

Is the actress, known for her girl-next-door looks, willing to take the glam route? “Even though I appeared as a Plain Jane in Oy!, I love wearing western outfits. I am comfortable in my jeans and tees and am confident that I can carry them off well. I want to be myself on-screen as well.”

Quiz Shamilee if she would ever accept an offer to act opposite her brother-in-law Ajith and she instantly shoots back, “No way! That would be an absurd thing to do. Moreover, Ajith will just hate this idea. I consider him my elder brother and am like a baby to him. So, I won’t act opposite Ajith.”

And what about rumours that she will be acting opposite Illayathalapathy Vijay in one of his forthcoming projects? “That’s not true. I’m not doing a film with Vijay as of now,” she says and adds that she will be back in Tollywood after a short break.

Allu Arjun's Arya2 to be renamed?


Every oneside lover will remember the movie Arya. Allu arjun starrer Arya released few years back and created records in tollywood. With its huge success, the filmmakers decided to remake the flick by repeating same combo of Sukumar and Allu Arjun. Initially they thought to go with the title Arya2 but now it seems they are in the mood of changing title. If sources are to be believed, “Aakrandana” is the title being considered by allu arjun and camp.

Allu arjun is paired with princess of Magadheera kajol agarwal in this flick while Navadeep plays the other important character in the film.

Yesterday's Top Heroine Paired up with Comedian

No one can expect this combo to occur. This combo is one of the rarest combo in todays film industry. She is the no.1 heroine in tollywood few years back and has cast with all the top heros of tolywood. She is none other than Aarthi Agarwal. Now she is facing tough times in her career. Soon she is pairing up with Dharmavarapu Subramanium. This yet to be titled movie is being produced by R.R Raja and directed by Ramkumar.The film is slated to hit the floors on August 5th and music is provided by Vandemataram Srinivas.

Dharmarapu will be seen in a lead role for the first time. This combo clearly indicates the fate of telugu heroines once they complete films with top heros. They dont get chances and no other way left except to accept the films like this. Hope she will do atleast performance oriented role in this film.
