Movie in Mahesh, Vijay and Murugadoss combo ?

0

Super star Mahesh Babu, during promotions gave a statement that he liked working style of Murugadoss very much and he would like to work with him in future too. For those, who thought it is just a diplomatic statement, this news will be a shocker. Seems Murugadoss is trying to make a movie in the combination of Mahesh and Tamil star Vijay. Murugadoss is trying to create a new trend with this movie. In this bilingual, Mahesh Babu will play villain role in Tamil version where as Vijay will be hero. But in Telugu roles will be reversed i.e. Mahesh will be hero and Vijay will be villain in Telugu.

At this moment it seems too early to comment, whether this will be materialized or not. But if happened, there will be huge curiosity from the audience of both the languages because they get to see their favorite hero in both the hero and villain roles. No doubt, this will be a great marketing strategy too. Actually hero Vikram got similar opportunity in Maniratnam’s Ravan movie. He played positive role in Hindi and negative (title role) role in Tamil/ Telugu.

We have to wait and see whether this interesting project will materialize or not.

Sivaji Raja’s son to debut as Hero

Following the trend of actors’ heirs trying their luck as actors, noted Telugu actor Sivaji Raja’s son Vijay is all set to make his debut as hero in Tollywood.

Our reliable sources have confirmed that Sivaji Raja has been holding discussions with director Teja to launch his son. After scoring a decent success with last Friday release, ‘Nene Raju Nene Manthri’, Teja is likely to get an opportunity to direct a big film. In that case, he may tell Sivaji Raja to either wait or go with another director.

Sources further said that if not Teja, noted cinematographer Prasad Murella will make his directorial debut with the launch pad of Sivaji’s son. Murella has so far cranked camera for around 20 films including Attharintiki Daredi and Dookudu. With a vast experience of closely monitoring the works of big directors such as Trivikram, Srinu Vytal, Krishna Vamsi etc. Murella also looks like a reliable option. We will divulge more details on this project as soon as we come across a new development.

For the starters, Sivaji Raja is currently serving as the President of MAA (Movie Artists Association). Having acted in close to 400 films and good number of TV serials, he is a winner of 4 Nandi awards. We have to wait and see whether Vijay has inherited his father’s acting prowess.

Haripriya in Demand in Kannada Films

She might not have tasted a decent box office success in Telugu but the talented and good looking Haripriya is in demand in Kannada films. Last year Vaarahi Vennalave (it means Ravoi Chandamama) starring Dinesh Atthakathi and her was a big hit. Director Shashidharan had this love story narrated differently and Haripriya says she fell for the story instantly. “He is fabulous, it is his first film. The minute he starts explaining the scene, you get excited and want to get into the character soon and easily. He has immense clarity and it is a love story that revolves around a girl Meera, can’t reveal much at this stage. There was lot of emoting more through expressions and eyes than dialogues. It is an extremely strong character and I am pinning hopes on this, only when this releases I will take up other scripts.”

The actor talks about the rest of the projects, she has five major releases in Kannada and one film in Tamil waiting to hit the screen. “Ugram was a big success in Kannada, released in 2014. After that there was no looking back, I signed Ranna (Attharintiki Dharedi), I played Pranita’s role. I am so happy that I got back to back hits. Bullet Bhasya is also a commercial film, Sharan is the hero and is headed for a July release. The songs have become popular here. Ricky has Rakshit Shetty as the hero, he is a director cum actor. This film however has not been directed by him. I have a double role, one as a naxalite and the other a soft one. The Naxalite has been presented not the way you’d see in an art film, it is a commercial love story. I have lost weight for this film and I am maintaining that. Ranatantra is in post production. It is a thriller and a love story, the director Adiram has blended thriller and love very well. Vijay Raghavendra is the hero. Right now I am shooting for Rajadhani 2 (Kannada) with Preetam.”
