Anushka hot pictures310309

The Anushka, who reports said was not interested in doing a Tamil film after ‘Rendu’, says she has pinned her hopes on Tamil cinema now and will concentrate on her career here. “My ‘Arundhathee’ might be a blockbuster but I’m not inspired to do the same genre of films over and again. Also, I’m focusing on building my career in Tamil now,” says the actress who has landed herself three roles with big heroes in Tamil.

The biggest of them all will be ‘Vettaikkaran’ in which she is paired with Vijay. The scene involving the hero and the heroine meeting for the first time in a railway station was shot recently, and those in the crew say it’s one of the funniest introduction scenes ever. Following ‘Vettaikkaaran’, Anushka will pair with Suriya in his next film, ‘Singam’. The film, directed by Hari, should give her a break showcasing her as a village girl, as Hari often does. The movie will be Hari’s third with Suriya, after ‘Aaru’ and ‘Vel’. And then, she has also signed to do a film with Karthi, titled ‘Siruthai’. With so many films, Anushka is all set to make a mark in Tamil cinema.

Actress Vega plays a teacher role in her next movie


When we saw Vega the first time, she was the school kid kidnapped by her father’s best friend. Well, in her second Kollywood offering, she has graduated from student to teacher! Yes, is her upcoming Pasanga, Vega plays a kindergarten teacher and she insists she had a lot of fun with the role. “In Saroja, I was surrounded by a gang of gungho boys! And in Pasanga, I was surrounded by a bunch of naughty boys! We had fun on the sets of Saroja, but this was something else. Being around these kids was fun,” she laughs. So did she have to play the teacher off-screen as well to keep the little pranksters focused? “Well, very rarely! Sometimes they were really naughty and we had to be a little strict with them.

But I figured the only way to get around them was to approach them as a friend. An occasional dose of the teacher-attitude was ok, but mostly I worked with them like we were all pals. We used to play cards or hide-and-seek in the evenings, watch stuff on my laptop… it was loads of fun,” she says. “The kids are the highlight of the film. They are so full of energy and life. It was great working with them.”

When asked whether he would like to act in any such movies he said that it was difficult for him to completely change track at the moment because he too has a fan following who expected certain elements from his films.

However, he added that seeing the stills of the upcoming Subramaniapuram Sasikumar produced Pasanga has inspired him a lot and he would definitely like to produce one such film. He said that such a venture would happen soon.

Suriya’s audacious efforts for ‘Ayan’


For continuing his six pack saga, Suriya will be back to the screens to flaunt his toned abs and mesmerizing acting in Sun Pictures’ ‘Ayan’. ‘Kallori’ girl Tamannah after sharing screen space with Dhanush in the super hit ‘Padikkadhavan’, pairs up with Suriya. Produced by AVM Productions, the latest trailer of the film featured a handsome Suriya walking the deserts and fighting the baddies audaciously in stunt scenes.

The Hollywood style of swinging down the bar and lifting the heavy barrel to knock out the henchmen looked awesome in the promo. But, very few knew that Suriya had a torn muscle while trying to support the weight of the iron rod. Albeit the painful injury, the actor continued with the scene that was shot extensively for seven days under the direction of stunt master Kanal Kannan. With just the basic first aid, Suriya did the sequence despite repetitive advice from the crew to pack up and continue later. This is just a piece of his meticulous work to exceed expectations with ‘Ayan’ that is set to hit the screen on April 3rd.

Shriya’s last chance in Bollywood!

Shriya Saran sexy kollywood actress pictures230309<br />

Can Shriya Saran make it big in Bollywood and fulfill her dreams? The answer will be known this Friday (March 27), when her long in the making Ek- The Power of One will be released. Shriya has done 35 odd films mainly in Telugu and Tamil and only four films in Hindi. But all her Hindi releases including the last Mission Istanbul were colossal flops. Now everything is riding on Ek- The Power of One, the remake of Mahesh Babu’s Telugu Athudu.

The film has Nana Patekar, Bobby Deol and Shriya in the lead and is directed by Sangeet Sivan, the younger brother of Santosh Sivan. It looks like a slick action film with some romance and music of Pritam. This is the Punjabi girl’s last and final chance in Bollywood. So let us hope the film clicks and she makes it big in her home state. Shriya need not be worried as she has the pick of films in Kollywood- Kanthasamy, Jaggubhai, Kutty, Thoranai, Chikku Bukku, and is all set to be the number one in 2009!

Tamanna’s tall, dark hero


Vishal’s Theeradha Villayattu Pillai, which will be directed by Thiru, will commence very soon. However, the team is still in the process of selecting the heroines. Sources reveal that there would be three heroines in the film. While Nayathara was touted to be a strong contender for the role, it now looks like Tamanna will bag the role. It may be recalled that Tamanna went to sign up a project - Payya - after Nayan refused to star in it. The other heroine is said to be Reema Sen. Meanwhile, there was a buzz that Bollywood actress Bipasha Basu could be signed up. But the actress is apparently not interested in south Indian films as she finds the language difficult to speak. With Theeradha Villayattu Pillai, Tamanna’s status in Kollywood will go several notches up, industry sources say.

Asin - Success has many pitfalls

asin-hot picture

Success has many pitfalls. Asin who has reached dizzy heights after the mega success of Ghajini is in the news for the wrong reasons.

A 55-year-old woman Sudalaivadivu has approached the Chennai city police commissioner alleging that her son Nallamuthu Kumaraswamy (23), who had worked as the touchup boy of Asin has gone missing. Asin told “He came to Mumbai as a touch boy. Later he met with an accident and all his treatment expenses, which amounted to a few lakhs were taken care by us. We also brought his mother down to Mumbai to look after him and after recovery, he said that he wanted to go back to Chennai and start some business”.

Continues Asin: “On January 21, he voluntarily resigned. All his dues were settled and he left for Chennai. My dad has registered this information of his resignation with the Oshiwara police station and produced the vouchers that all his payments were settled which a regular procedure in Mumbai”. However, a source close to Nallamuthu Kumaraswamy in Tirunelveli states that he had started a business in partnership with a friend that incurred huge losses. And realizing that he could not cough up the money, by working with Asin, he left the job. This is not the first time that top actors are targeted by their staff who wants to grab some media attention by making false allegations.

In the case of Asin, the biggest mistake they did was to take the staff they had in Chennai with them when they shifted to Mumbai. Remember that earlier, a lady from Chennai had made accusations that Asin was forcedly keeping her daughter as domestic help against her will, which was sorted out when the girl herself gave her statement against her mother claiming that she was happy working with Asin.

BipashaBasu hot actress bollywood pictures

Bipasha Basu is laying emphasis on an area her fans would hardly care about: her pronunciation! The sex siren, who has earlier featured in a blink-and-miss role in Vijay’sSachin’, said she was not interested in doing both Tamil and Telugu films. Birdies in Kollywood have it that she was approached to play an important role in Vishal’s forthcoming film. When asked about it, the actress said she was diffident in acting in a language she was not familiar with. “It’s never an issue of who the hero is or how he looks when I agree to a script. The most important factor is if I understand the language that I’m expected to mouth. I don’t understand both Telugu and Tamil and so haven’t taken up offers from there,” says the actress.

‘Raavana’ shooting gets delayed


Despite managing the dates of the hottest stars of Indian filmdom, from Abhi and Ash to Vikram and Prithviraj, shooting for the stunt portions of Maniratnam’sRaavana’ has been stalled. The reason? A serious injury of its stunt master Peter Haynes. Peter Haynes met with an accident a month ago during the shoot of a Telugu film ‘Mahatheera’, after which he suffered from 19 fractures. The accident, which happened in February, has dearly costed two of the most anticipated films of the year, ‘Endhiran’ and ‘Raavana. Says Peter Haynes himself about his injury, “I am part of both Rajini’sEndhiran’ and Maniratnam’sRaavana’. For ‘Endhiran’, a few action sequences were canned with me moving about in a wheel chair and instructing the stuntmen. “But that was possible only for a few milder stunt blocks,” he adds. On account of Peter Haynes inability to involve in heavy duty stunts, the shooting of the action portions of both these films has been delayed.
