Rajendra Prasad back in 4 Avatars

Rajendra Prasad
After taking the film world by storm in his colourful Quickgun Murugun avatar, veteran actor Rajendra Prasad is all set to surprise once again.

But this time he is losing his comic side. The 210 film-old actor will be seen in a "medical thriller" titled "Dream", which is touted to be the first of its kind in Tollywood. Prasad plays a retired Army officer who is going through a peculiar phase in his life.

"The movie is a journey into the protagonist's mind," says debutant director Bhavani Shankar whose script impressed Rajendra Prasad so much that he agreed to do the movie almost instantaneously.

The actor is excited about his new avatar. "If all the 200-odd movies I did are on one side, this is on the other side, holding its own," says Rajendra Prasad, adding that he is thrilled about the way he has been styled in the movie.
The actor has four distinct looks in the film. "There were moments of hesitation, especially when it came to the African braid look and the rocker look. But Rajendra Prasad is a director's actor. He believes in giving you the freedom and letting you be. When he understood why each of his four looks was important to bring out different personalities of his character, he agreed to experiment," says Shankar, who first shot to fame when he won a national award in 2009 for "I vote for", a short film. "The only challenge was to keep him from slipping into his comic moods, since all his movies have been comedies," he quips. The director, who plans to take this film to international film festivals, including Cannes, roped in stylists who have worked on Big B to style Rajendra Prasad. And once the Telugu version is out, talks are on to make it in Bollywood too.

Kajal Aggarwal: Tollywood, Bollywood or Kollywood?

Last Friday was an important day for Kajal Aggarwal for two reasons - Singham, which hit screens, marked her Bollywood debut and Maatraan, her film with Suriya, went on floors in Chennai.

"I've never done a role like this in my career," she says about her K V Anand film, "It is a fantastic combination (Suriya and Anand) and I've been waiting to start work and finally, the shoot has kickstarted now!"

Having worked with Karthi earlier in Naan Mahaan Alla, the actress is now looking forward to sharing screen space with his brother, Suriya. So, has she found any similarities between the brothers? "Well, they're both very professional and get into the skin of the characters they're playing. They don't act on the sets; they just behave!"

Interestingly, Kajal's sister Nisha Aggarwal has also started shooting for her Tamil debut. Any tips that she has given her? "I want her to learn and make her own path in Tamil cinema," she says, adding, "She's a hardworking and talented girl. I hope she soon becomes my competitor in tinsel town!"

The actress, who currently has a couple of Telugu films on hand, is looking at concentrating on K-town as well. "Earlier, I couldn't concentrate on Tamil as I was doing a lot of Telugu films. But now, I'm looking at balancing it and doing more in Tamil. In fact, I've some interesting projects lined up for the future. You'll see a lot more of me here soon!"

Tollywood’s Mass Media Actress

While not too long ago tinsel-towners taking a shine for hard-hitting journalist roles was the fad, now the trend seems to have reversed with those with a media background settling down for a filmi career. That's exactly what bubbly Nithya Menen, stylish Priya Anand and Bengali Babe Shraddha Das have opted for.

If Nithya Menen, who played a photo journalist in "180", sounds too candid at times, then perhaps you can blame it on the fact that she studied journalism. The actress, who does not believe in beating around the bush, in her forthright style had gone on record to tell us why she chose not to take up journalism as a career. "Journalism is not what it used to be. I thought it was an important job, but it is not. I'm idealistic and it pretty much upsets me that negativity sells. I knew a job like that would lead to a lot of conflicts because of the way I am and I wouldn't last long!" she says.

Then does she really get to do what she wants to in films? "More than being an actress, I wanted to make films so that I could say what I wanted to through the medium. Actually, I almost turned down "Ala Modalaindi" because I wanted to learn cinematography at FTI Pune. Nandu (Nandini Reddy) brainwashed me into doing the film. Now I have no regrets," she adds.

While that's Nithya's viewpoint, Priya Anand, a Communication and Journalism graduate from the University of Albany, who also played a journalist in her debut film "Leader" looks at things in a totally different way. "I think journalism, films and all other media go hand-in-hand. I always wanted to get into films and I studied journalism to get to know the technical aspects of production. I also worked as an assistant director for a TV channel. My education has helped me handle all kinds of people and to present myself in a better way."

Actress Shraddha Das, whose last T-town outing was "Nagavalli", holds a degree in Mass Media and Journalism. Shraddha feels that her education stands her in good stead in a tinsel world where actresses have a short shelf life. "Journalism is my Plan B. I took up the course after I had joined films as I was interested in it and it is a related field. In the glam world, nothing lasts forever and after my marriage I do not want to do films. I'd love to be an anchor or a news reader."

Southern Actress Sizzling in Bollywood

The southerners are arriving in Bollywood. Be it Asin Thottumkal, Rana Daggubati, Kajal Aggarwal or Sundeep Kishan, many of India's young southern film stars are giving in to the lure of the "glamorous" Hindi film industry.

Though they are yet to rise to the stature of Sridevi and Jaya Prada, many actors from Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Kerala are beginning to take up Bollywood projects.

Daggubati, who entered Hindi films this year with Rohan Sippy's "Dum Maaro Dum", feels Bollywood could give him a chance to experiment with his talent.

"I knew I could never get an opportunity to do this kind of role due to regional boundaries. The role and the script were a bigger excitement for me to grow as an actor," Daggubati, grandson of veteran Telugu film actor-producer D. Ramanaidu and the son of producer D. Suresh Babu said.

With "Shor In The City", Sundeep Kishan forayed into Hindi cinema from the Tamil-Telugu industry. He grew up in Chennai.

"The southern industry is healthy, but the craze that the Bollywood world has created is unbeatable. Who does not want to be part of it? Moreover, I feel Bollywood has set international standards in the recent past and from outside it looks like a 'glamorous' world," Kishan said

"Experimentation with roles is what one looks forward to and I see that in the Hindi film industry. The satisfaction and the career prospects - all soar high after one makes a mark here," he added.

As far as southern luminaries like Mammootty, Mohanlal and Kamal Haasan are concerned, they have done select films in Hindi and made their presence felt, but never really made a base in Mumbai.

But in the recent past, Bollywood has welcomed a slew of actors from the south, including Kamal Haasan's daughter Shruti in "Luck", Trisha Krishnan in the Akshay Kumar-starrer "Khatta Meetha and Charmy Kaur in the Amitabh Bachchan-starrer "Bbuddah... Hoga Terra Baap".

There are others who are awaiting the release of their projects.

Ileana D'cruz will be seen in Anurag Basu's "Barfee" and Kannada-born actress Lakshmi Rai will feature in Satish Kaushik's "Tere Bina Jiya Nahin Jaye".

There is a lot of buzz around Kajal Aggarwal's full-fledged Hindi debut opposite Ajay Devgn in "Singham", releasing Friday.

Kajal, who did a cameo role in the 2004 Hindi film "Kyun...! Ho Gaya Na", feels regional barriers are disappearing in filmdom.

"The reach of Hindi cinema is larger, but the south is equally professional. In the south, they have very talented technicians like in Bollywood. Both industries have equally good artists, good scripts and good professionals," said the actress, who has featured in 21 southern movies in four years.

"Regional barriers are slowly and steadily disappearing which is a very good thing," she added.

Madhavan, who entered Bollywood in 2001 with "Rehna Hai Tere Dil Mein" and has risen in popularity thanks to films like "Rang De Basanti", " 3 Idiots", and "Tanu Weds Manu", points out that it is important for actors to speak a language correctly to make it big anywhere - be it Bollywood or Hollywood.

"Fortunately, I do have a market in both these worlds. Very few actors have that...maybe Kamal Haasan too! Having said that, I don't think that an actor can be limited by his ability to act. If there is any limitation, it will be by the way he speaks a certain language," he said.

"Being a Madrasi, if I am not able to pull off a 'Tanu Weds Manu', and my so-called Punjabi accent sounds like a Madrasi accent, there will be very less appreciation. Similarly, if I go to Tamil Nadu and be a guy from Madurai.and speak like I am a Hindi guy, that's not going to work," he added.
