Prabhu Deva and Nayanthara shared a special relationship which blossomed into love. This had created quite a flutter in Kollywood because Prabhu is married to Ramlath and has two children.
Both Prabhu and Nayan have neither acknowledged their relationship in public nor have they denied it. Ramlath on the other hand has been running from pillar to post to get back her husband.
Several film personalities from Kollywood intervened to bring in amicable solution between the husband and wife. In one such meeting, Prabhu Deva reportedly told them that Nayan would commit suicide if he moves away from her.
Vijay is at an important cross road now. With controversies and criticisms mounting Ilaya Thalapathi has finally decided to put everything to rest and make every body happy.
As the first step Vijay has decided to release three films this year to make the theatre owners happy. Siddique's ‘Kaavalkaran’ is 60% complete and is generating good trade talk so far. ‘Jayam’ Raja is also ready for ‘Velayudham’ and there will be an official announcement next week.
Also there is news about Vijay giving his consent to do the remake of ‘3-Idiots’ in Tamil. It’s likely that Vijay will announce this at the launch function of ‘Velayudham’.
With these sudden developments the theatre owners are convinced and are ready for Vijay films again.
Sources close to Prabhu Deva denies the news of him signed by Sridevi Boney Kapoor to act in their next production venture in Bollywood. Though being a hot and much in demand choreographer in Bollywood Prabhu Deva never had an inclination to act in a Hindi film his people say.
As a director, Prabhu Deva is now busy with “Ich'. This ‘Jayam’ Ravi, Hansika Motwani starrer is produced by Sridevi Kapoor. After 'Ich' Prabhu will again wield the megaphone for a Salman Khan film.
It is interesting to know that Salman Khan will be doing two films simultaneously for directors from Kollywood. The other Salman film will be directed by Saran.
The more you gain name and fame, there will be lots of problems added to it. Actress Asin seems to be one such personality, who gained overnight success in film industry within short span of time.
Now the actress has been drenched in trouble as she was mobbed during the film shooting of ‘Kavalkaran’.
Vijay’s 51st film is Kavalkaran. This film is remake of the Malayalam film Body Guard. Asin is pairing with Vijay. There are lots of expectations since Asin is pairing with Vijay after going to Bollywood. The shooting of this film is taking place at a modern indoor stadium in Vellore. A song sequence featuring Vijay and Asin was shot.
There was a big crowd to witness the shooting. But the crew did not permit any one inside. But still the whole crowd was waiting to get a glimpse of Vijay and Asin. At that point Asin came out of her caravan and waived at the crowd. The crowd who got merrier seeing the gesture started mobbing her. Police intervened and set it right. The shooting of the film is going on in VIT University and indoor stadiums for more than 10 days.
For the past couple of months, there have been heavy protests against the releases of Tamil films. Especially with Big Pictures, the producers have been irresistibly frustrated as they keep occupying almost every theatre. Recently, they were insisted to release ‘Kites’ in limited theatres and didn’t go by the rules.
Instead, Big Pictures released the film in innumerable theatres and have got the Red Card now.
Obviously, the trouble falls on the part of Surya’s ‘Singam’ slated for next week’s release. Film Distributors Association Kerala (FDAK) has now severely issued Red Card for Big Pictures and its upcoming release ‘Singam’ have a problem with its release in Kerala.
Same issues seemingly have taken in order at Karnataka as ‘Kites’ was released in more screens pertinently.
Trisha has started work on her new film with Kamal Hassan. The untitled film produced by Udayanidhi Stalin is directed by KS Ravikumar. It also has Madhavan and Sangeetha in the cast with music by Devi Sri Prasad.
On Tuesday afternoon Trisha was at DSP’s studio along with Kamal Hassan and a bunch of kids to record “a poetic piece” for the film. It was not a song but a catchy poetic line which would appear in the background.
The buzz is that Trisha herself is likely to dub for the film, for which shooting is to start in Monte Carlo in June. The film is to be shot on a Mediterranean cruiser, and promises to be “the most important film” in Trisha’s career.
Prakash Raj’s ex-wife Lalitha Kumari has said that she is aware of his relationship with choreographer Pony Varma. Speaking further on this issue, she said that she wishes that Prakash remains happy with Pony forever.
Having moved on in life after their divorce, Lalitha says that at present her two daughters mean the most to her.
It may be recalled that Lalitha refused to opt for a divorce but had to give in later. She is currently back to acting, we hear. Lalitha is the daughter of late actor Anandan and sister of ‘Disco’ Shanthi.
Namitha has showcased her acting skills in almost all film fraternities in India. She has acted in Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam, Hindi and English movies. But we guess it is the first time she will be acting in a negative role. The actress is set to show her fans her negative side in her forthcoming Tamil movie Ilaignan.
The script for Ilaignan has been written by the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, M Karunanidhi. Namitha will be acting in this movie along with renowned lyricist Pa Vijay who is to play the lead role.
One of the reasons why Namitha accepted this role is because she was very much impressed by the character she is supposed to play in the movie. The glamorous actress claims that the fact that the Chief Minister has written the dialogues for this movie also prompted her to sign the film.
The actress is a little apprehensive about the audiences’ reaction to her negative role. She claims that though her role is negative it would still have the elements that her fans would usually expect from her. She is hopeful of making her fans happy with her role in Ilaignan.
We too hope that your audiences like you in this new role of yours, Namitha!

Hit director Sakthi Chidambaram used to be a big supporter of sex bomb Namitha.
But he fell out with her and is now taking revenge by introducing another bombshell Sruthi, formerly known as Hema Malini.
