Now, the box office result of the film ‘Dookudu’ pumped fresh oxygen into Tollywood business and its mind-blowing collections created a record. However, reports from Chennai are that the Kollywood folks are planning to beat ‘Dookudu’ with their Diwali release ‘Velayudham’ which is remake of the Telugu movie ‘Azad’.
As part of this, it is heard that they got the noted trade analyst Taran Adarsh to put a tweet which goes like this – “Tamil film Velayudham is rocking internationally. Opening weekend biz in UK and USA is excellent”.
Similarly, efforts are reportedly on to get articles published in foreign newspapers since ‘Dookudu’ was mentioned by LA Times. An insider from the ‘Velayudham’ camp revealed that the Tamil Thambis are also working on coming up with new initiatives to show that ‘Velayudham’ has crossed ‘Dookudu’ collections wise. Let us see what happens.
In the last few months, one name is being talked about a lot in the film circles. He is Vennela Kishore. While he has already proved his mettle as an actor, Vennela Kishore is currently the hot topic for his directorial ventures. Currently, he is busy with his debut venture but already few other projects are being eyed by him.
It is known that Vennela Kishore is directing ‘Vennela 1 ½’. Recently, it was also reported that he is directing the film ‘Jaffa’ with Brahmanandam as hero. This is going to happen after ‘Vennela 1 ½’. Now, it is heard that Vennela Kishore is planning to do the story, screenplay and direction for two more projects.
Sources say he is planning to do a film titled ‘Katravelli’ with Ali and ‘Aithey Ok’ with Kondavalasa. Basically, these would be small budget movie with strong comedy material and lot of spoof, as per inside sources. As such, why those titles are chosen is known since Ali and Kondavalasa were the creators of those catchwords.
The hot Malayalam beauty Asin who is still dreaming of making it big in Bollywood got to celebrate her birthday recently. This was on the eve of Diwali and it is heard that she spent the special day with her friends and family. As usual, she was showered with gifts but one gift shocked her the most.
This was from her mom and sources say this was gold jewellery. Apparently, Asin has got a strong liking for jewellery and it is heard that she got an exclusive designer range jewellery from her mom. Sources say this was something Asin had liked about a month ago.
However, since she has been busy shooting for her movie ‘Bol Bachchan’ she didn’t have the time to buy it. Much to her surprise, her mom discovered that and made it a birthday surprise. It is no surprise that Asin was shocked and thrilled on receiving this gift from her mommy.
The wise men say ‘Success should always be enjoyed by heart and not by the head’. The best example for that is director Rajamouli. Despite his non-stop hits career, Rajamouli has been grounded in his approach. But then, even a popular director like Rajamouli tends to face few hiccups.
Recently, Rajamouli came up with a tweet. It goes- “Lot of people get confused between me and Vinay garu. Even a few days back Purandareshwari garu addressed me as Vinayak garu”.
Though this shocked quite a few, there are those who were rational about it. They mentioned that usually, normal people tend to feel very bad if something like this happens. But those who read this tweet say “It is indeed a great gesture from Rajamouli. Something like this is normal from someone like Purandareshwari or those who are not much into watching movies.”
They add “In fact, Rajamouli must be appreciated. He put it on a lighter vein and in a subtle manner in a matter of fact way. Mistaken identities are common in today’s world. But it takes spirit like Rajamouli to accept it in his stride given his celebrity status.”
It can be said that ‘Ra.One’ has been a film in the recent times which was promoted to the fullest. Some felt that the film was literally choked into everyone’s throats as everywhere they go, it is either ‘Ra.One’ or Shah Rukh Khan. Anyways, all these efforts failed to give any output as the film fizzled out in theatres.
Meanwhile, one highlight USP for the film was the cameo by superstar Rajinikanth. Well, this was meant to be a one minute stint. However, those who saw the film are not really convinced if it was indeed the real Rajini. While some felt it was all the expertise of morphing and graphics, others felt it was just Rajini’s face and rest was someone else.
However, reliable sources have informed “It was indeed Rajini sir in the film. Because his presence was a blink and miss appearance, before anyone could really get into it, Rajini sir vanished. And he doesn’t have to travel all the way to Mumbai along with his technicians and spend one full day if all he had to do was drama.”
Generally actresses are known for throwing envy on each other. But Namitha and Sneha is the rare duo. Their friendship is going ‘thick’ and ‘warm’ day by day. They are shopping together these days wherever they are. They were at a Star Nite event in London recently where they found together shopping in malls.
Sneha also revealed recently in an interview that Namita is her thickest friend and she cannot keep away from her for longer time.
Indeed, same is being applied to Namitha as well. She seems to be the great solace for Sneha whenever the latter is in dull mood.
The friendship of these two actresses in indeed standing as an inspiration for many other actresses.
