No more killing
It has been quite a while since Vaanam had released in Tamil Nadu and director Krish Jagarlamudi has finally moved to his next project by VaanamVedamGamyamwrapping up the draft and will be working on the finer details soon. It will be a bilingual and he makes an important declaration by saying he will not kill the hero this time. He killed Gali Seenu (Naresh ) in Gamyam, the man walked away with critical acclaim, he killed Cable Raju (Allu Arjun), ditto with him plus an award. He smiles and adds, “audience ni champatam kanna story lo hero ni champithe better anukunna.” Ask him if he is seeing someone in the industry, he replies emphatically, “I prefer hunting for scripts and leave the job of hunting for girls to my mother.”
Sairam as Yama
Sairam Shankar is turning stylish for his forthcoming film with Srihari. It is a socio-fantasy and Srihari will be playing the role of Lord Yama.
There have been many stories on this line and will this project be different from the rest? Sairam Shankar says “in the earlier stories there has been a rivalry between Yama and the hero, but here there will be some novelty. Yama will visit America in search of the hero.
We could be seeing Ali as Chitragupta. The shooting will take place in Rome for 40 days and in US for 30 days, beginning in September. My brother (Puri Jagannadh) was supposed to wind up the script part soon, but he got busy with Big B's movie.
Annaiya is writing the story and dialogues and his assistant Gopi Ganesh is making his debut as the director,” informs SairamBumper Offer.
Saloni looks every inch like Jhansi Lakshmi Bai seated on a horse, dressed in a Maharashtrian sari with a sword. “It's a title song on Telugammayi that lauds the qualities of Andhra women, her beauty, intelligence, courage. She is sweet, spicy and khatti meethi and more.
All these years none of the scripts touched my soul, but with one Maryada Ramanna I'm being flooded with lovely stories.” Apparently this Telugammayi from Mumbai is wrapping up a project with Balakrishna in which she plays a guest role and a full-fledged lead role in Venkatesh film Bodyguard; the remake of a Malayalam rom-com and is also being made in Hindi with Salman.
The favourite topic of discussion these days is the unearthing of the temple treasure and Nikhil is no exception. He tweets with a picture of him and his father at the Padmanabha Swamy temple that he visited it in 2009 and he didn't know he was so close to a treasure, in fact right under his feet, worth billions. With the excitement of a child he says that he'd read about pots of gold being retrieved by poor farmers in Chandamama books but this is a real dream come true. He quips, “The sleeping God was black in colour, we thought it was carved in black stone; later I got to know that the idol was made with gold but was darkened to distract the attention and prevent looters.” The actor wishes to see a movie on it and for all we know in this industry where there is no dearth of inspirations, someone might have already embarked on the idea.
Return of the dancer
Local girl Archana is going places in Karnataka and Tamil Nadu and is most of the time shuttling from Hyderabad to Chennai or Bangalore. Apart from signing two films in Tamil, she has been selected zeroed in for the lead role in a mythological project and will be playing Sati Savitri for a film to be directed by writer Paruchuri Gopalakrishna. “I'm looking forward to start working ing in the film, it is in total contrast to the glamorous roles I play in other films,” says the actress. But the most interesting event that is likely to take place soon is her dance performance on stage.
