Vikram in Mani Ratnam’s ambitious, historical film?

0

Mani Ratnam’s ambitious project Ponniyin Selvan is finally taking off. He is planning to adopt Ponniyin Selvan, a historical novel by Kalki Krishnamurthy, written in Tamil. The novel is in five volumes, or about 2400 pages and it tells the story of Arulmozhivarman, who later became the Chola king Rajaraja Chola I.

There have been several attempts to create film adaptations of Ponniyin Selvan. In 1958, MGR announced the project and he even did casting for several of the roles but later dropped the project for unstated reasons. In 2012, Maniratnam attempted to film a complete adaptation of the novel, but had to shelve the project due to budget issues.

Now Maniratnam again started working on this project. It was earlier rumoured that Maniratnam planning to rope in Vijay, Simbu and Vikram for the period project. But latest reports suggest that Vikram has been finalised for the film. It is known news that Maniratnam has earlier worked with Vikram in Tamil and Hindi versions of Raavanan (Villain in Telugu).

The makers are yet to officially announce the project.

Vikram’s ‘Saamy’ bombs big time!

0

It’s been a while that the super talented actor Chiyaan Vikram has scored a proper hit. Despite teaming up with top directors in the past, he could not manage to be on the success line. So he preferred to do his favourite genre i.e, cop drama.

Accordingly Vikram has collaborated with director Hari for ‘Saamy.’ Although the trailer and songs have garnered a good response, the film which had hit the screens yesterday did not live up to the expectations. As the film has ended up as a disaster, Vikram has bagged one more flop.

Well, there no doubts that Vikram is a gifted actor but he needs to change the way he is selecting the script as audience are now looking for contemporary subjects even without commercial elements.

‘Dhruva Natchathiram’ is the next project of Vikram. Being directed by Gautham Vasudev Menon, the film has been in production stages for quite some time now. May be the film will have its release by the end of this year.

Hopefully ‘Dhurva Natachathiram’ will bring back Vikram to success streak!

Chiyaan Vikram’s recent outing Sketch released in Tamil during Sankranthi and ended up as a decent box-office grosser. Though it was Sai Pallavi who was roped in to romance Vikram in the film, she was replaced with Tamannaah later. The makers did not disclose the real reasons for replacing the female lead and Tamannaah seemed fit in the assigned role. Sketch is gearing up for Telugu release soon and Vikram is currently busy promoting it. During his interaction, Vikram was asked about Tamannaah being replaced with Sai Pallavi.

Though Vikram did not disclose the reason, he revealed that Tamannaah is a better choice than Sai Pallavi. “Tamannaah was a perfect choice for the role of a Brahmin girl in the film and audience will fall in love with her role. Sai Pallavi was replaced due to several reasons” revealed Vikram. The actor’s comments irked Sai Pallavi’s fans as he confessed that Tamannaah was a better choice for the role. Sai Pallavi has been riding high with back to back hits in Telugu with Fidaa and MCA. She has a series of Telugu films lined up which will start rolling soon.
