Trisha's Diwali in Bangalore


It’s all work and no fun for Trisha this Deepavali. The actress would be shooting for her film King alongside Nagarjuna in Bangalore on the festive day.The young actress, who is eagerly awaiting the release of ’Abhiyum Naanum’, directed by Radha Mohan, says, ’ I will be in the sets of King on Deepavali day. It’s all work for me on Deepavali day.’

Trisha who has completed ’Abhiyum Naanum’ and working in the films Sarvam, directed by Vishnuvardhan and Goutham Menon’s ’Chennaiyil Oru Mazhaikalam’, says, ’I am doing movies of different genres now. Every film is different from the other. My characterization is quite plausible in all the movies.’

On ’Abhiyum Naanum’, she said, "It is a different film altogether. It speaks about the emotional bondage shared between a father and his daughter. I have done several films with Prakashraj and we share a good rapport on screen. Radha Mohan has rendered an engrossing tale, which is far away from commercial cinema."

’Sarvam’ is a movie to reckon with. A team of talented technicians led by Vishnuvardhan are working round-the-clock for the movie. ’Chennaiyil Oru Maazhaikalam’ is fast nearing completion. A few more portions have to be shot. Working with Goutham is a great learning experience’.

However the actress is tight-lipped when queried about ’Marma Yogi’. ’It is all but Kamal Haasan in the film. It is not appropriate for me to talk about it now’.

suruthi-hasan hot pictures

Sruthi Kamal Haasan is an ardent fan of music and is on her way to make a mark with her composition. Meanwhile, she had stepped into Bollywood as an actress with the movie ‘Luck’. The news is not about the movie but about Sruthi’s habit of bringing along her musical troupe for the shooting spot, even if it is canned abroad. This act of hers has evoked various controversial comments.

The crew of Luck canned the movie in South Africa and heroine Sruthi was present with her troupe there. Even if it is filmed in Mumbai, she is seen with her musical crew by her side.

On being questioned, Sruthi retorts,”I am fully dedicated to my guys and they will be with me wherever I go. Recently, a fashion show was organized in Mumbai to which I was invited to walk on the ramp, dressed in Rohan’s designs. I suggested the people that a musical accompaniment will add up to the show and they gave their consent. It was the first time my musical troupe staged a performance in the event.”

‘When I am with them always, why should I be going alone for the shooting of the film? That’s why, I take them with me. Gossip is on the go that I am in love with my drummer Jerry but it’s completely false. We are friends and that’s it,’ concludes Sruthi.

Shriya on Kamal and Shankar

Shriya Saran kollywood actress

A doe-eyed beauty, a divine beauty, all these words and more come to mind when Shriya Saran’s name is mentioned. Her innocence radiating from the screen, coupled with sensuousness has sent her fans, especially men, into mindless frenzy. Recently, this delectable lady voiced her opinion on two film personalities who have influenced her in a major way.

The first personality is of course director Shankar, who directed Shriya in the biggest hit of her career, Sivaji - The Boss. Her portrayal of a loving, dedicated and above all, protective wife was very subtle and moving. She attributes this to director Shankar, whom she likens to a authoritarian who works in the best interests of the movie and the actor, ensuring that he extracts only what is necessary for the role.

Her other favourite is of course Kamal Haasan, who has turned his talents to direction with Marmayogi, which is currently in production. Kamal Haasan, who has always been able to elicit the most sensual performances from his co-stars, will be locking lips with Shriya Saran in Marmayogi. Kamal, she says, is a perfectionist and does not stint any efforts until the end-product is exactly the way he wants it -- perfect.

Well, knowing Shriya Saran’s penchant for hard work, she sure won’t be grumbling about all those re-takes to get something ‘just so’.

Agreeing with Simbu’s suggestion to increase Silambattam’s appeal by adding a remixed song to it, Yuvanshankar Raja has remixed Rajni’s yesteryear hit number ‘Vachikkava’ from Nallavanukku Nallavan. The song, which featured Rajni in a special suit fitted with small light bulbs, was a rage amongst the audience then. It is said that Simbu too adorns the same type of suit in this remixed version!

Insiders say that this song, which was shot for 6 days together, will rock Kollywood just the way its original had done years ago. Apart from the remixed tune and Simbu’s attractive light bulb-fitted suit, the song will be noted for the dance steps; the actors had to work hard to get the demanding dance steps correct, and they gave a beautiful performance.

Silambattam stars two beautiful ladies, Sneha and Sana Khan alongside Silambarasan. Ace cinematographer Saravanan directs the film.

Suriya's 'Varanam Aayiram' release postpones


The release of ‘Varanam Aayiram’ would not be for this Deepavali as expected ardently and probably the movie would hit the screens on the first week of November. In this film, Suriya plays dual roles and his characters will be known as Krishna and Suriya. Simran, Sameera Reddy, Divya Spandana play the heroines.

The film announced with a budget of 14 crores has drawn inspirations from the Hollywood movie ‘Forrest Gump’ starring Tom Hanks and has been made in a way to suit the Indian audience.

Gautham Vasudev Menon regarding the title once stated that they did not deliberately attempt to name the movie with a Tamil title. The title, which is a phrase from Andal’s ‘Thiruppavai’, was found to be synonymous with the storyline of the movie and thereby it was picked. ‘Varanam Aayiram’ literally means the strength of thousand elephants.

The film has seven songs composed by Harris Jayaraj. The songs from the albums were released to four leading FM stations in Chennai, with one song per station, in attempt to popularize it five days before the official launch.

With the Suriya-Gautham duo coming back after the blockbuster Kaakha Kaakha(2003), and with Harris Jayaraj’s music, Suriya appearing in different get ups with three glamorous ladies, ’Varanam Aayiram’ is much worth waiting till this november and it would sure become the hottest film in Kollywood trade circuit.
