Mamta buys house in Bahrain

Mamta Mohandas has bought a new apartment in Bahrain. The ‘Sivapathigaram’ girl moved to Telugu and Malayalam after not able to gain any ground in Kollywood. She did a cameo in ‘Kuselan. Even the much delayed but curiously awaited ‘Guru En Aalu’ failed. So the actress started concentrating on other languages.

She even tried singing and is fairly successful at it, including some respected awards for her singing in films.

Now will the new home in Bahrain make her shift base? Not immediately. She may be happy to acquire her own home at the place where she was born and brought up, but with career booming in her mother tongue Malayalam, Mamta will be here around for more time.

Rajini gifts paiting to Kamal

Vinay goes Hollywood

He did start off well in Tamil with ‘Unnale Unnale’. Later ‘Jayam Kondaan’ cemented his place. Actor Vinay was fast becoming the new chocolate boy of the girls in Tamil Nadu. But of ‘Modhi Vilaiyaadu’ slowed him down a bit. But the upcoming ‘Nootrukku Nooru’ will again put him in the hot seat.

vinay-press-meet8

Actor Vinay is slow but steady. The prudence has paid off. Vinay has signed an International film project ‘Dame 999’. Vimala Raman also plays an important role in this cross over film. The story is about the events in the life of an engineer and revolves around an old dilapidating dam in India built during the colonial rule.

Suhan Roy who was an engineer in real life debuts as the director. The cast and crew are from both India and Hollywood. Award winning actors from India and Hollywood like Rajit Kapur, Thilakan, Ashish Vidyarthi, Joshua Fredric, Jaia Pickering, Aryan, Tulip Joshi, Linda Arsenio, Barry John, Eric Sherman, Ajayan Vincent, Ouseppachan, K S Chitra, P Jayachandran, Thotta Tharani, Sreekar Prasad, Shahjith, Pattanam Rasheed and S B Sateesh will be part of the film.

Priyamani as heroine for Suriya

Priyamani is now getting roles in Bollywood after playing Abhishek’s sister in Mani Ratmnam’s Raavan.

She has now been signed by none other than Ram Gopal Varma to play heroine opposite Suriya in his Hindi-Telugu bilingual Raktha Charithra.

priyamani-spicy stills-14

RGV’s film is about the bloody faction fights in Cuddaph region of Andhra, which saw the rise of real life gangsters like Paritala Ravi and Maddelachervu Suri, who later became politicians. Paritala Ravi is being played by Vivek Oberoi and Suri by Suriya, while Priyamani will play the role of his wife Gangula Bhanumati.

It is a major break for Priyamani, the National award winning actress as she is able to do back to back roles with top directors like Mani and Ramu.

Rahman to compose for Ajith's 50th flick

This is going to be the best combo of season as the most happening stars are set to gear up for a big project. If what we heard from our sources is believed to be true, then Gautham Menon’s next untitled film with Ajith Kumar will have A.R. Rahman scoring music in it. Gautham Menon’s yet-to-release Vinnaithandi Varuvaaya has great melodies by A.R. Rahman and the songs have already become chartbusters. To be precise, Vinnaithandi Varuvaaya has gone on to be a raging success with a sold out even on online stores.

Buzz up!Even Ajith Kumar has become fond of A.R. Rahman for his award winning music. In the recent times, the actor cannot stop signing praises of the Mozart of Madras and has been showing keen interest in with working with him. Previously, Ajith Kumar and Rahman have come up with some commendable films- Kandukondain Kandukondain and Varalaaru. When approached the sources of both Ajith and Gautham, they mentioned the technical crew hasn’t been finalized yet and they’ve been into the deep discussion about picking the best technical team with producer Dayanidhi Azhagiri.

Vijay speaks for Ajith

In the recent controversy over Ajith and artiste privacy issue Ajith has got support from an unexpected colleague. Though he is considered a professional rival to Ajith, Ilaya Thalapathi Vijay has come out in support of Ajith our sources reveal. Vijay has reportedly talked to V C Guhanathan for Ajith. What did he speak?

ajith___vijay

Vijay had apparently said to FEFSI President “Ajith is an open book and he never speaks anything with hidden motives. He always speaks from his heart. The non-issue was blown out of proportion only by media”. Vijay also has requested V C Guhanathan to let the issue go and not take any further actions by FEFSI.

Meanwhile, some other reports say, even the chief minister did not like the idea of issuing “red cards” to Rajini and Ajith. Reports also said the meeting of Ajith with the CM was cordial and the CM listened to Ajith’s point of view in the whole episode with concern.

Charmme Charms Her Audience Once More

Award-winning Mantra girl Charmi is back in the limelight big time with the success of Aagathan in which she plays a daughter in love with a man seeking revenge on her father. The film also stars Dileep. “At the end of the day, it is content that matters,” she says, “That has been proved by director Kamalji’s Aagathan, which had a gripping story. I look great in the film, thanks to cameraman Ajay Vincent and my dress designer Ishita.”

charmi sexy tollywood actress pictures 220210

Although she has a a high profile in Tollywood and Mollywood, Charmi has not found it quite so easy to break into the more macho Kollywood scene. “Let me be honest — heroine-oriented subjects are not commercially viable in Tamil cinema,” she explains, “Here, you have to be an ultra-glamorous leading lady and do films only with superstars. Otherwise, it just doesn’t work. The audiences here pay money to see their superstars on screen and for heroines to get noticed, it’s better to piggyback ride on them.”

Charmi has just wrapped up work on Sye Aata opposite Ajay and Rao Ramesh. “I am confident that Sye Aata will be a memorable film in my film career,” she says, “My characterization is very novel. The production values of the film are very good.” The young actress is also looking forward to the release of Indu in which she plays the title role.

Nayantara’s first Kannada in Tamil also

Nayantara’s first Kannada film ‘Symbol’ in which she pairs opposite Upendra will be a trilingual – Kannada, Tamil and Telugu – and so Nayantara fans can get ready to cheer her in Tamil also.

nayantara hot kollywood actress pictures 220210

Upendra is a super star of Kannada and is regarded as creative film maker. ‘Symbol’ is directed by Upendra and he has promised to surprise the audience with the film. Surely the Symbol surprise will be extended to Tamil audience as well. The film had an extravagant launch on Thursday in Bangalore.

After she announced doing Symbol with Upendra, she was flooded with many more in Kannada. But Nayantara has refused them all. Sources say she even refused an offer from Ravichandran with whom all most all the Tamil heroines have acted. 

Nayantara has her own plans, it seems.

Shruti Hassan is back to her first love

The first love for Shruti Hassan, the daughter of legendary actor, Kamal Hassan, has always been music though she was liked by the critics for her beauty and performance in her debut movie ‘Luck’.

Shruti Hassan13

Shruti has given musical scores for many films including the Tamil film ‘Unnai Pol Oruvan’ which had her father Kamal in the lead role.

Once again she is all set to compose music for another South flick with her daddy in the lead role. The film is from the filmmaker K.S Ravikumar titled ‘Yaavarum Kelir’. This is out-an-out commercial flick unlike her previous film which was a thriller.

Thus, Shruti once again dons on her musical caps to impress her fans with her varied colors and talents.

Others who attended the high profile function are Rajini's mentor K Balachandar, producers Panchu Arunachalam, Kalaipuli S Thanu, directors S P Muthuraman, lyricist Vairamuthu and actors Prabhu and Vijayakumar among others.

Shruti opposite Suriya?

Bollywood grapevine is abuzz with rumours that Kamal Haasan’s daughter Shruti has signed a film opposite Suriya to be directed by AR Murugadoss.

shruti-hassan-luck-1

Remember that there were rumours doing the rounds that Asin will be doing the film but now sources close to the director confirms that Shruti, is ready to be the heroine.

 Shruti she said: “Right now, it’s too early for me to deny or confirm about this project. I have to come down to Chennai and hear the script and then decide whether I should do it or not”.

Industry watchers feel that it is a dream debut for Shruti in Tamil as the film has a wonderful team like cameraman Ravi K.Chandran and music director Harris Jayaraj to be produced by Udhayanidhi Stalin.

Bhavana sacks her manager!

Cute demure girls are turning sexy and glamourous overnight, ready to take the tinsel town by storm. Bhavana who has been struck with the girl-next-door image in Tamil tried to turn glamourous with Ajith’s Aasal .

Bhavana

She appointed a stylist and tried to re-invent her image to keep up with the changing trends. The pretty young girl also send her glamorous stills to production houses, through her manager.

The actress thought that her role in Aasal will turn out to be a big hit. She had told friends that her mass songs in the film will make her hot and happening. However unfortunately, the film failed to live up to its hype and Bhavana ended up with egg on her face.

Ad now, she has sacked Ajayan, her manager on the ground that he has no Raasi (luck). Our sympathies are with the poor guy who was responsible for bringing her from Trissur and introducing her into Tollywood via Kollywood.

Ajith - Troubled times!

Our ‘Thalai’ Ajith is passing through tough times following his “controversial speech” at Pasa Thalaivanukku Parattu Vizha felicitation function for Chief Minister M Karunanidhi held on February 6.

cmajit300

Ajith had the guts to say that there were seniors in the industry who forced him and others to compulsorily attend events organized on sensitive political and social issues. After Ajith’s speech Rajinikanth got up and clapped in appreciation and hailed him as a hero for his honesty and courage in speaking his mind at the function.

This stirred a hornet’s nest within the industry, as they felt they were slighted and wanted Ajith to tender an apology. Rajinikanth’s support enabled the star to sail through without an apology.

However the industry bigwigs wanted to take some action against Ajith. Once again Rajinikanth came to his rescue and met Chief Minister Karunanidhi on Thursday morning and tried to sort out the issue. Rajini told the waiting newsmen that he had come to thank the CM for attending his daughter Soundarya’s engagement!

Actually Rajini paved way for Ajith’s meet with the CM. Four hours later the star smartly dressed in a suit had a 20 minute chit chat with Karunanidhi. This set to rest the speculation that the CM was upset with the star.

After his all important meeting with the CM, Ajith looked far more composed and cool. The actor told the newsmen waiting outside the CM’s residence in Gopalapuram: “ It was a courtesy call and CM was very cordial and he did not raise any queries.”

Meanwhile stunt director ‘Jaguar’ Thankam’s car was damaged allegedly by Ajith fans for giving a “vitriolic interview against the star to a Tamil weekly.” There was a move to frame-up the star, but Ajith denied having anything to do with the incident

Nayanthara & Prabhudeva spotted on Valentine's day!

Has Nayanthara and Prabhu Deva formalized their live-in relationship?

Well, the Tamil tabloids are full of titbits about their “public togetherness” ever since they came together on stage to perform on February 6 at Chief Minister’s felicitation function in Chennai.

Nayanthara-Prabudeva

Since then the couple have been spotted at many places like Chennai airport coming out together after Nayan’s photo shoot in Bangalore for her Kannada film, at an upmarket restaurant, and last Friday night at Inox Multiplex in Chennai watching Shah Rukh Khan’s My Name Is Khan.

And on Valentine day Nayanthara, in a freewheeling interview with a leading Malayalam daily said- “If I like a person I will go out of my way to do anything for that person. I just don’t understand why people make and hue and cry that I tattooed Prabhu’s name on my hand. I really don’t care what people think about me as it is difficult to please all and sundry. I believe in the theory that we should live for ourself and the people who love us.”

Prabhu and Nayan are one of the idyllic looking couples in the dream world of Kollywood, the reason may be avowed that both are looking brilliantly stylish these days. And a little birdie tells us that Prabhu made his special one feel even more special on Valentine Day by taking Nayan for a long drive, a romantic candle lit dinner by the seaside at an exotic resort and lots of gifts. Cute isn’t it?

Karthi’s Paiyya release postponed

Paiyya,starring Karthi and Tamanna, will not grace theatres as scheduled (Feb 19). Instead, director Lingusamy has decided to postpone the release to coincide with the summer vacations. Sources close to him adds that the decision came because of the annual exams and IPL matches round the corner.

 Paiyya Karthi Tamanna

Paiyya is an urban story that depicts some interesting events happenings in the lives of a pair of lovers. The movie was shot in Bangalore, Hyderabad and Mumbai. The music of this Karthi-Tamanna starrer, released early in November, is already a runaway hit. Director Lingusamy has assured that Karthi will appear in a never-seen-before look.

Shruti Haasan is dating Siddharth

Kamal Haasan’s daughter Shruti Haasan is dating Siddharth. While it was hinted so far, they are moving towards formalizing it.

Shruti-Haasan-and-Siddharth

Tongues started to wag about the couple after they were seen entering the premiere of Siddharth’s film, ‘Striker’ together.

Now, it looks like Shruti has introduced Siddharth to her parents.

According to sources, her family is aware that the couple is getting increasingly fond of each other.

 

Shruti also seems serious about him. She has even got Siddharth to meet her sister and they get along well.

 

‘Endhiran’ in 3D

Yes. Director Shankar is planning a 3D version of the magnum opus ‘Endhiran’ to pre-empt any piracy attempt.

After the unpleasant episode in ‘Jaggubhai’, where the full length film was leaked on the internet even before it came out of the processing lab, Shankar is trying each and every way to plug the holes. Today all major films are happening under strict vigilance by competent persons. Mani Ratnam has appointed managers at each point where the works for ‘Raavan’ is happening.

endhiran_shooting_still

So in a no holds barred attempt to make the audience watch ‘Endhiran’ only at theaters, Shankar is even contemplating to convert a part of ‘Endhiran’ film into a 3D version. He has already started consultations to this effect with the experts on the economics of converting the film into a 3D film.

The demo version of ‘Endhiran’ in 3D was shown to Shankar by an effects company and he is awfully impressed with the result. So the chances to see ‘Endhiran’ wearing the 3D spectacles are great.
