Endhiran story controversy

Author Amudha Tamilnaadan, who has claimed that the story of superstar Rajinikanth’s latest offering ‘Enthiran: The Robot’ was written by her a few years ago, met the police yesterday and submitted her evidence in support of claim that the story was hers.


Authors Amudha and Arnica Nasser have separately filed a case with the police claiming that the story of ‘Enthiran’ was theirs. Amudha has also filed a suit with Chennai High Court claiming a compensation of Re.1 crore from the producers (read Sun Pictures) for ‘having used’ her script without seeking her prior permission.

Amudha has said that the story of ‘Enthiran’ has been ‘lifted’ from her story which was published in the journal ‘Iniya Udhayam’ way back in the year 1996 and has added that Shankar had ‘cleverly’ refurbished the story to suit the needs of celluloid. The crime branch has now taken over the investigations into the case.

Shankar had submitted a written explanation saying that the story was based on the novel ‘En Iniya Iyandhira’ penned by the late author Sujatha. Deposing before the anti-video piracy wing of the CB-CID at the Police Commissioner’s, Office, Amudha submitted copies of the journal ‘Iniya Udhayam’ published in 1996 which carried her story ‘Juguba’.

After verbally explaining her stance in the matter, Amudha left the COP’s office.

Vanitha raised a new issue against her family

Now, Vanitha Vijayakumar has raised a new issue regarding their family dispute. She has accused her father and step-brother for threatening her and her second husband Anandarajan. She has confessed to the media that the police have not reacted properly to her complaint. She also added that the Chennai police is moving the case in favour of her step-brother and her father Vijayakumar.

Moreover she said that  Arun Vijay, director Hari - husband of Preetha Vijaykumar, and father Vijaykumar are jealous of her growth as their company Vijay Kumar Video Entertainment is doing good business. Finally she threatened to commit suicide leaving behind a note holding Vijayakumar, Hari and Arun Vijay responsible for it.

Kaavalan caught in a fresh controversy

The much-awaited movie for Vijay's fans, Kaavalan, is caught in a fresh controversy. The movie is produced by Ramesh Babu, who had earlier sold the overseas distribution rights to Tantra, a company specializing in this. With the movie's release nearing, director Sakthi Chidambaram has bought the entire rights of the movie from the original production house. With the new agreement in place, Sakthi Chidambaram claims that the overseas distribution rights sold to Tantra is not valid.


Upset with this development, Tantra has knocked the doors of the Court and has filed a case regarding this. A judgment was announced today which has stayed the release of Kaavalan for the next six weeks within which time, the producers and distributors may agree to a solution. Meanwhile, the music release date for Kaavalan is under consideration.

It was strongly expected that Prabhu and Nayan would make it to the family court yesterday, November 23rd, 2010 to counter the charges made by Ramlath Prabhu Deva. It may be recalled that Ramlath had filed a petition for restitution of conjugal rights and seeking a bar on Prabhu and Nayan from making public appearances together.

Several media persons who thronged the court complex had to return frustrated when the magistrate ordered the case to be posted on January 21st, 2011 and issue a third summon to Prabhu and Nayan as both of them failed to appear.

Ramlath’s advocate also submitted a medical certificate in court stating that his client is unwell and could not attend the hearing.

Suriya’s Rattha Charithram’ release postponed

The ardent buffs of Suriya are enthralled about the release of his next film ‘Rattha Charithram’. The film was supposedly scheduled for release on this Friday. On the spur of moment, the producers have postponed it again to December 3.


The Tamil version was to release along with the second part of Telugu and Hindi on November 26. Due to more releases in Telugu and Hindi, the distributors and exhibitors are delaying the release as they want to spin more profit. It is worth mentioning that the first half has witnessed tremendous results in both Hindi and Telugu.

So the fans of Suriya will have wait for yet another week to catch up their star’s different film.

Dayanidhi Azhagiri and Vivek Karunakaran of Cloud Nine Productions are into full-fledged promotions of the film in all media networks. The teasers over the satellite channels are constantly appearing while the announcements and dialogues of Suriya are aired in radio channels.

Protest against Nayantara

Hindu Makkal Katchi Kanna has raised protest against Nayantara for playing the role of 'Sita' in an upcoming Tollywood flick 'Sri Rama Rajyam' in which Nandamuri Balakrishna is playing the lead roles.


Chennai Family Court has also issued fresh summons to Nayantara & Prabhu Deva to appear in court in January 2011 as they failed to appear in court on Tuesday.

HMK objected to the actress playing the role of Sita in the Telugu flick is like insulting our morals, sentiments and the great epic. Describing that Ramayana is based on the principles of 'One man one woman' whereas Nayan has been stealing other woman`s husband in real life is not fit to play the role of Sita.

The Endhiran Complete 50 Days!

Endhiran was released on October 1, 2010 and has successfully completed 50 days in 145 Theaters.


The movie which is touted to be the costliest film in Asian region is also the highest grosser in India.

Endhiran is said to have collected more than 350 crores of rupees so far and its distributor share alone stands at 120 crores, which by any yardstick is a mere magic. Bollywood movie ’3 Idiots’ is the only movie which comes close to the feat of Endhiran.

As a dubbing movie what endhiran did is a wonder. It has collected more than 30 crores of rupees.
Endhiran crosses 50 days in Andhra, Kerala, Malaysia & Singapore!

Endhiran completing 50 days in 160 theatres in tamilnadu is not a great news, say critics. But they too were awe struck about the feat the movie has done in other states like Kerala and Andhra.

As per the sources 50th day poster of any dubbed movie or original tamil version movie, other than native language movies, crossing 50 days and its poster being pasted on walls is happening after a long time.

Even in south asian countries like singapore and malaysia Endhiran has successfully completed its 50 day run. Though it is undeniable that a considerable amount of tamilians live in those countries, endhiran completing 50 days in many a theater is a matter for wonder.

In malaysia alone the movie is still running in 15 theatres while it runs in Rex and Golden theatres in singapore.

Canada and UK are two of the very prominent western countries where majority of the population consists of white people. Even in these countries endhiran has crossed 50 days. This is something which must be cherished by tamil people.

As rajini aptly pointed out that he would act only in those movies which will bring honour and pride to the tamil/indian people, the movie is just doing the same.

Mamta Mohandas suffering from cancer

Much of her fans in Mollywood really had a big shock when they realised from the media that their favourite actress Mamta Mohandas was suffering from cancer. The 25 year old actress, who celebrated her birthday on this 14th in a special way on a jumbo aircraft with 360 underprivileged kids, is but cheerful and confident about fighting the disease.


She was diagnosed to be suffering from a rare type of cancer named Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, but fortunately for Mamta and her fans, the disease has been diagnosed at a very early stage and chances of Mamta recovering from it are 100 per cent.

I had to undergo a haircut when I was acting for a song sequence in the film 'Anwar' for chemotherapy. Many thought that I had cut my hair to look beautiful and enquired about that. But I think, I faced the cancer bravely. It is a tough thing to undergo such painful treatments like Chemotherapy and radiation. But one must realise that without struggle there is no victory. This is my life’s philosophy, and so I don’t look at anything with negativity.

The actress who had built a fan base in Tamil, Kannada, Malayalam and Telugu had also been successful as a playback singer which even won a Filmfare award. She suddenly has got plenty of projects including 4 Malayalam films under her sleeves. She had also recently tattooed lord Ganesha on her shoulder as she believes that her mental strength to face the issues of complexity and the power to face such issues is gifted to her by Lord Ganesha.
