Sameera Reddy need to move to South?

Sameera Reddy has a reason to celebrate. Two years ago her movie Kalpurush had won the National Award and this year, it is her Tamil film Vaaranam Aayiram which has won an award. With South films doing wonders for her, we in turn are wondering if Sam needs to shift base there itself, since Bollywood isn’t exactly going great guns for her. But then again, she has art house cinema like Red Alert and Yeh Hausla that may still work. If these films are also given a thumbs down by the audience, the actress might as well move down South, bag and baggage in tow. After all Nagma, Simran, Jyotika and many other beauties struck pay dirt when they moved down South. What say Sam?

NTR jr marriage real intentions?

Is that the Money and Power only matters in the marriage's of high society people. This was exactly what is happening related to NTR jr marriage.

We all came to know about NTR's marriage. Nandamuri family and CBN family both has confirmed the news. But Why is NTR marrying a girl who is 10 years younger to him and not a major yet? Some say he agreed because his father-in-law is very rich who has hundreds of crores worth land and also TV Channel Studio-N while others say since Chandrababu Naidu arranged this match, NTR and his mother will get proper recognition in the Nandamuri family and NTR by any means need to provide his mother a good place in the family.

The advantages we see when NTR jr gets married to Pranita:
  • CBN, can have a complete grip on NTR since Pranita's mother is niece to CBN and hence NTR becomes a family member of CBN in other way too.
  • Already CBN's son Lokesh Naidu had a major stack in the Studio-N. And once this marriage occurs the rest of the stack will be with NTR jr. Hence Lokesh Naidu will take over the Studio-N channel.
  • Already Studio-N's TRP rating got increased with this news.
  • NTR's mother can have a proper recognition in the Nandamuri family.
  • NTR can get a huge amount of dowry since is Father in law is one of big shots in Hyderabad.
These are all just our thoughts, but no one knows his real intentions. What do you think of this marriage with 10 years age difference girl? Respond with your views in comments section.

Four Times National Award Winner's Future Plan!

She’s won the National Award for the second consecutive year. And it’s by no means a small achievement for the 25-year-old. This is also her fourth National Award. Predictably, Shreya Ghoshal is still over the moon after the announcement. “It definitely feels great. But you know what? I’m really nervous. That’s because now, there is more responsibility on me,” said the singer when media spoke to her. “Now, I have to keep delivering better music everyday. I can’t be laidback and let it all slip through. I don’t want to disappoint anyone.

But the award is more special to the velvet voiced singer since she has won it for not one but two songs — Jiv Dangla from the Marathi film Jogva and Pherari Mon from the Bangla movie Antaheen. “Today one finds melody missing in most numbers. But these songs only prove that there are melodious tunes in movies too,” says Shreya.

On winning the award for songs in regional languages, Shreya says, “Bollywood film music composers are under a lot of pressure to add elements of disco or bhangra or any other flavour currently popular with the youth. But when it comes to regional films, composers are given a free hand and they compose music they believe in. I think it’s a matter of great pride to be singing such soulful tunes,” she says.

And when she’s not busy at the recording studios, Shreya is doing a weekend television show, Music Ka Maha Muqabala. Apart from exercising her vocal chords the singer has presented herself as a young, stylish and vibrant individual before her audience. “It’s fun to break stereotypes. I like being myself and my outfits reflect that. As far as performances are concerned, I connect best with the audience at live concerts. For those who can’t come to see me perform live, this show gives them an opportunity to catch me singing on stage. Trust me I just love it,” she confesses.

So what next? “Well, the National Award has made me more conscious about the choices I make in life. And no matter what language I sing in —Tamil, Telugu, Bangla or Bhojpuri — my aim will be to give it 200 per cent.

Allu Arjuns's suggestion to NTR?

We all know that NTR and Allu Arjun are good friends. But we dont know whether its coincident or suggestion. All the Heroines of NTR jr in his recent films are the ex-Heroines of Allu Arjun. It was Hansika who started this trend. Desamudhuru was the debut film of the young actress with Allu arjun and her next film in Telugu was NTR's Kantri.

Sheela who did a soft role in Parugu, did a glamourous role in Adhurs. Now Kajal Aggarwal is all set to join the league. Aarya2 was the Allu Arjun's movie after Parugu and Kajal Aggarwal is the female lead in it. Now after Adhurs, NTR is acting in a movie named Brindhavanam in the production of Dil Raju and for this film Kajal aggarwal was roped in.

Is Allu arjun suggesting NTR jr about the Heroines or its just a pure coincident?

RGV says 'Telugu movies are formula driven'

Love him , hate him, but you just can’t ignore him. While many wondered why maverick filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma made a promotional trip to the city without any star accompanying him, he made it beginning that “stars don’t make a film”.

His forthcoming movie Rann has a stellar starcast of Amitabh Bachchan, Paresh Rawal, Ritesh Deshmukh and the like, but Ramu is promoting his film all by himself. “There’ll be a huge crowd to come and see a star, no doubt, just like the mall mayhem when Salman (Khan) was in Hyderabad. But whether those numbers will actually convert into tickets at the box office is not a guarantee. So I don’t see the need for a star to promote a movie,” explains Ramu.

“As far as Rann is concerned, there is no hero or heroine. The main protagonist is the media and other characters revolve around it. So there is actually no star who can speak about it other than me,” he elaborates.

Considering his love-hate relationship with the media, the next question was an obvious one — why make a movie on the media? “I think it’s a relevant topic today. Every home in the country has a TV set and people are hooked on to news channels. What I have done is present my view of the media. But I have not generalised it.”

So isn’t he worried about the backlash if the film fails to live up to expectations? “That’s the whole idea. As a filmmaker I want to start a discussion. I have done a lot of research and presented my views of the media. Now if someone disagrees, he or she is most welcome to present their points,” he says. And what about the critics? “Anyone who watches a film will have a view and a critic is no different. Reviews don’t make any difference to me because I never read them. I have better things to do in life,” he says.

The Hyderabadi who now has a strong foothold in the Hindi movie scene is working on another ambitious project, Rakta Charitra, which attracted attention for all the wrong reasons. Post death threats, Ramu is still going ahead enthusiastically with this project which many consider Vivek Oberoi’s big comeback. “I’m not scared of death threats or anything. As a film maker if the subject interests me, I’ll go ahead. And honestly speaking, no one makes a film to flop,” he quips. The movie, a bilingual, will also see Tamil superstar Suriya make his debut in Bollywood. Though many have tried, not many heroes from the Southern film industry have been able to make it big in Hindi cinema. “Well, that’s because they are already kings here, and they really don’t see the need to work hard and make a mark in Hindi cinema. Of course, the story is different when it comes to heroines,” he quips.

As a filmmaker what marked difference does he find between the Hindi film industry and Southern film industry? “Variety. Hindi cinema has a lot to offer in terms of different scripts, novel ideas etc. But Telugu cinema is all about formulaic films. No one wants to try something different and even if they do, it might not work,” explains Ramu.

KCR's daughter Kavitha need to be realized !

Kavitha KCR DaughterKCR's daughter Kavitha gave a statement that they will stop releasing of Adhurs movie in Telangana region. Yesterday on a Live show in Sakshi TV, a caller from Hyderabad questioned her about banning Adhurs film. He said that its our Telugu film and there is no separate Kalama Talli for Telangana, Andhra and Rayalseema. Kavita was surely embrassed with the caller and she said, "All the film personalities need to come out to give their views about Telangana issue."

Even Party leaders like Chandrababu Naidu, Rosaiah are unable to give their views, how can she expect film personalities to come for support? Can she go to Andhra region and ask the people to support Telangana? Everyone knows that most of the Heroes in Telugu film industry are from Andhra region. It doesn't mean that those Heroes can only support to their regions but atleast they should be diplomatic for their own survival! Some of my friends, who are from Telangana are in support of Samikya Andhra, if those people go to JAC or Kavitha and express their views will you people accept? They want PEACE instead of PIECE.

Logically speaking, if film actors support one region they will definitely loose their market in other region for atleast sometime. Hence they don't want to talk about the issue.

By stopping big movies like Aarya2, Adhurs Telangana people are getting more loss than producers. Producers will sell their prints at high prices and at the end, theater owners and people who live on theaters are real losers. Unfortunately they will be from Telangana. Atleast think about those people and please don't interrupt any of the Telugu movies in Telangana region.

My Personal Feeling:
I guess to maintain peace in the state, TRS need to be merged with Congress and by making Mr. KCR as CM will resolve the issue upto a certain extent. Being a CM from Telangana region, he can promise his people that in the next 4 years he can develop Telangana region very fastly even if they are United. Since all Andhra people want United Andhra, they need to accept KCR as CM and since Telangana people wants development, KCR may fulfill them. To establish peace in AP people need to compromise in one way or the other after-all Life is a big Compromise.

-Gopinath Reddy.

Genelia is better than Priyanka chopra!

We all know what happened when Shahid Kapoor sat pillion behind Priyanka in Kaminey. He hit the ground hard, to be exact! But that has not discouraged director Ken Ghosh from putting him on a two-wheeler behind Genelia, this time around for Chance Pe Dance. It’s believed that when Shahid’s character asks Genelia to keep riding, a stern Genelia absolutely refuses to jump a red light even though all roads are completely devoid of traffic. In another shot when Genelia was to drive fast through heavy traffic, their scooty was attached to a towing vehicle and they needed to take a lot of turns to get the shot right. With each turn, Ken kept asking the towing truck to go faster and faster, as a result of which the scooter kept getting faster too. At one turn, the speed was so fast that the side wheels of the scooty went up and Genelia and Shahid were seconds away from flying in the air, attached to the tow truck… Ken shouted ‘cut’ and finally the shot came to an end without any bodily harm to the lead pair. Genelia clearly managed to keep the scooter under her control. Shahid was clearly second time lucky with Genelia, who when in charge of the two-wheeler, made sure no mishap occurred. That’s one point to Genelia and zero to Priyanka Chopra.
