Pranitha Mobbed By Fans!

Celeb Cost!
No matter what, containing fans when heroines are inaugurating shops is impossible. We’ ve seen it happen earlier with leading actresses. Samantha once lost her cool to slap a frenzied fan who misbehaved with her during the opening ceremony of a mall. Bollywood waif, Katrina Kaif too had the bitter experience of being harassed by hysteric hordes at a promotional event. Now one more actress has gone through it. Coming to the point, gorgeous beauty, Pranitha Subhash  dazzled  everyone at an Optical Shop opening in Vijayawada recently.
Knowing that the star is making it to the inauguration, her fans thronged the place. TheAttharinitiki Daaredi star was mobbed by some unruly set of people in the crowd. Soon the security personnel forced them out and the actress was safely taken away. Later the doe-eyed beauty lambasted the organizers for poor security arrangements. Pranitha is currently shooting for Vishnu Manchu starrer Dynamite directed by Deva Katta. The action thriller flick is expected to hit the screens this summer

Charmi At Goa With Puri!

Beach Lakshmi!
Having delivered a riveting success with Temper, director Puri Jagannadh is coming up with a woman oriented movie Jyothi Lakshmi with Charmme as main lead. The shooting of the movie is going on at a brisk pace. The first look teaser that was launched for Women’s Day got thumping response on the internet. Apparently Charmme plays a rebellious woman fighting for women’s  rights in the movie.
The latest update is that the unit is shooting some romantic episodes for the movie at exotic beaches of Goa. Puri Jagannadh’s love for beaches is well known. All his movies have romantic songs filmed raunchily on silvery, sandy beaches starting from Idiot to his latest Temper.
C. Kalyan is producing the movie under the banner C.K. Entertainments while Charmme herself presents it and Sunil Kashyap is composing the tunes

Do You Know Who Saiyami Kher Is?

Who Is She?
Saiyami Kher, the actress who is making her debut in Tollywood, with the film, Rey, directed and produced by Y v s Choudhury is also doing a film with Rakesh om Prakash Mehra of Rang De Basanti fame. The film is titled as Mirziyan. For those who know that Saiyami Kher is just a famous model, here are few facts about her.
Saiyami Kher is the granddaughter of yesteryear Hindi actress Usha Kiran and niece of Tanvi Azmi and Shabana Azmi.
Saiyami Kher will be playing the female lead opposite Sai Dharam Tej, Chiranjeevi’s nephew, in the film Rey, which will be released tomorrow.
Let’s wish Saiyami Kher all the best for her debut in Tollywood

A Movie On Prophet Mohammed!

Movie On Mohammed!
Well! We all knew how sensitive  it is to talk about depicting Prophet Mohammed. Many clerics say that trying to depict Prophet Mohammed is forbidden. The recent attack on Charlie Hebdo is a classical example in this regard. Earlier, a fatwa was declared against Salmaan Rushdie, who authored ‘The Satanic Verses’, where in it was said that Salmaan Rushdie has dishonoured Prophet Mohammed.
The latest news from a news agency  is that Majid Majidi, an Iranian director is trying to make a film on Mohammed. The movie is titled ‘Mohammed, The Messenger Of God’. The film maker and his film both are already in the news for its story and the making. As a part of the shooting, a replica of the Kaaba has been built in Allahyar. The movie is of 190 minute duration and the story of the movie focuses on Mohammed’s childhood without showing his face. The movie will run as recollections by Mohammed’s grandfather, Abdul Muttalib played by Iranian actor Ali Reza who  narrates the story of Mohammed

Never Before Climax For Rey!

Well, Rey is all set to see its ray of hope on Friday March 27. The Sai Dharam Tej starrer directed by YVS Chowdary was locked in cans for over a year. After all the dilly dallying the movie is finally making it to the theaters. Rey has Saiyami Kher and Shraddha Das as female leads. Music composed by the late Chakri is rocking everywhere. In a casual chitchat with the mega hero, an interesting point about the movie was revealed by him. The Pilla Nuvvu Leni Jeevitham star said that the movie will have a different climax altogether.
Of late, Tollywood audiences are offered fascinating finishing in the movies. Sai says, YVS has come up with one such unpredictable climax for Rey. “We spent over 35 days only on the climax which includes an 8 minutes song splendidly shot. It will be an experiment of sorts and audiences will be thrilled,’ said he. The movie has generated a hype, thanks to the unique promotional activities of makers cashing in on the craze for mega and power star heroes

RGV Take On Virat Kohli GF!

RGV’s Satire?
Well! We all know that India has lost the World Cup semi finals to Australia . Though the team  tried a lot, they couldn’t make it to the winning line. Fans have taken to social networking sites to dissect the team’s performance and many things are being discussed about the  India loss, Virat Kohli’s performance is one among them. Perhaps the main point in them. We know controversies surrounding VIrat Kohli and his girl friend Anushka Sharma. Many are criticizing that Anushka Sharma is the reason behind Virat Kohli’s poor performance in the most important match of the Indian calendar.
Ram Gopal Varma has also expressed his opinion in this regard. He, on his micro blogging site has said, “I personally like Anushka Sharma’s performance  much much more than the performance of whoever and whatever her boyfriend is?”
We hav no idea if RGV was being sarcastic about Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli’s relationship, which perhaps might have led to the bad performance of Virat in today’s match. God alone knows!

Laxmi Rai's Horror Again!

South sizzler Raai Laxmi is coming up with yet another horror flick. After a seductive role inChandrakala co-starring Hansika and Andrea, the siren is all set to scare you once again. Raai Laxmi has done well in horror comedies also. Telugu audience wouldn’t have forgotten her raunchy chemistry with Raghava Lawrence in Kanchana. Raai Laxmi is back to emote you tug at your heart strings  in her forthcoming Kollywood film Sowcarpet along with Srikanth. He is  the guy who played the lead in Rojathota pairing Bhoomika and also co-starred Venkatesh in Adavari Matalaku Ardhale Verule

Breaking News: Baahubali Postponed!

Baahubali Delayed ! 
SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus Baahubali release date has been postponed, say highly placed sources. Rajamouli  had officially announced that the movie was done with its shooting and would be released on May 15. But now, this seems highly unlikely. Due to the  extensive post production work involved in it– the film is loaded on  CG and vfx — the producers may not be able to keep the deadline, we hear. Rumour is that SS Rajamouli  was not satisfied with nearly 20 minutes of the VFX work,and hence that portion is being redone.
The director could not be reached for his comments for corroboration, but our sources are reliable. Baahubali  is an epic drama film which is being made on a very high budget. Directed by Rajamouli it is  produced by Shobu Yarlagadda.Baahubali is perhaps the most high budgeted movie which will be released in two parts. The film features Anushka Shetty, Prabhas, Rana Daggubati and Tamannaah Bhatia in the lead roles. Music for this movie is composed by M M Keeravani.
We have been waiting for a long for this movie to be released. Now, the wait just got longer

Quote for March 28


When we live our lives
with intention of leaving this temporary home
a better place for generations to come,
we are perhaps leaving behind the best gift of all.

Jayasudha Hits Back!

Counter Attack!
After all the twists and turns MAA elections have reached  a crucial juncture. Just a day left before voting, the momentum has picked up and the heat is on at film nagar circles. As reported, courts have giventhe  green signal to go ahead with the elections imposing a condition that results are not revealed. However, the war of words hasn’t stopped between prime contestants Jayasudha and Rajendra Prasad.
With Rajendra Prasad making it to every news channel criticizing his opponents, the veteran actress responded via a press meet along with her panel on Friday. The senior comedian has been repeatedly appealing that he would collect fund for welfare of under privileged actors if he is elected as President. Countering him Jayasudha said that she will not only create a fund but also assured that the panel members would be prime donors to it. She concluded saying charity should begin at home

Kona Venkat Looted At Knife Point!

Crime Time!
In a shocking incident, star writer Kona Venkat was looted at knife point by hardcore robbers at Shadnagar in city today, March 27. Reports say Kona, along with producer DVV Dhanayya were returning from Prakash Raj’s farm house. They had attended a party thrown by the versatile actor on the occasion of his birthday.
And on their way back at night, a gang of highway robbers attacked them on the Shadnagar to Kesampet Road, apparently the robbers blocked the road with a tree they had cut and placed on the road. When the driver stopped the car Kona and team were travelling in,  one of the thieves broke the front window glass  with an axe and demanded money. Upon robbing them the mob fled the scene .
The writer has filed a complaint and police are investigating. Meanwhile Kona shared his anguish and worry as how insecure our city has turned. He said, “A very shocking moment for me & our producer Danayya garu, when we got looted at knife point by some highway robbers last night at Shadnagar.

Samantha Playing The Toughest Role!

Toughest Role?
Samantha, the actress who is considered the Golden legged beauty of Tollywood has posted on her micro blogging site that she is playing the toughest role of her career right now. She posted:
“ #10endruduhkulla .  The toughest role of my career so far. #iheartcinema #breakingstereotypes #Iwantmore  2015 whatdya got?”(sic).
All knew that Samantha has made her debut in Tollywood with the film Ye Maya Chesaveand the rest is history.  Samantha has acted with top stars like Pawan Kalyan, Mahesh Babu and Nagarjuna. Such a renowned actress saying that she is playing the toughest role is making the audience curious about the movie 10Endruduhkulla. Samantha is playing the female lead opposite  Vikram in this movie.

Rudramadevi Out Of Race?

It seems like postponement of movie releases is catching. Earlier we reported that Rajamouli’s magnum opus Baahubali is being postponed, now we are getting  news thatRudramadevi could also be pushed. To go by the sources, Gunasekhar’s prestigious historic film might drop out of the summer releases race.
You must be knowing from our earlier posts that music director of the film, maestro Ilayaraaja has been to London to score the background for Rudramadevi. Not just because of this but Gunasekhar too is said to be reworking on the CG part of the movie. As we know, audio and trailers of the movie were launched a few days ago.
While songs got good response, the trailer has got mixed reviews. Many viewers have given thumbsdown for the quality of graphic work. The buzz is that the director doesn’t what to bet on it and so he is believed to be fine tuning the movie. However this is all  unconfirmed buzz and we have to wait to hear from the makers

Bahubali May Upset Mahesh Babu Plans

Mahesh Babu’s tentatively titled Srimanthudu is eyeing for July 17th release. This film is a family entertainer directed by Koratala Shiva who scored big blockbuster with his debut Mirchi. Expectations are sky high on this film which was earlier planned for summer release.
However the makers decided to go for July release due to slight delays in the schedule. While fans are happy to know that Mahesh's film is going to release without any competition, buzz from film circles says that it could face the biggest of challenges as Bahubali is likely to be postponed to July.
Although Rajamouli announced that Bahubali will arrive on May 15th, unconfirmed reports reveal that it will be delayed by two months going by the progression of post production work. No one is ready to lock horns with Bahubali, which is considered as the Movie of the Year. If Bahubali release is delayed until July, Mahesh's Srimanthudu might step back until August.

Shocking: Kodali Nani and Roja apologize Publicly

Public representatives are supposed to set an example to the people but that’s totally forgotten. Budget sessions of Andhra Pradesh has witnessed the worst incidents of all. The MLAs made personal allegations, humiliating comments and used abusive language.
 The YSR Congress party MLAs Kodali Nani and RK Roja has finally apologised publicly for their allegations against the Honorable Speaker Kodela Siva Prasad. The MLAs said “You are like father figure to us. We take back our words as they hurt you. We sincerely apologise for the kind of allegations we made.” This kind of attitude of the MLAs are surely to be applauded and welcoming.
However, the YSR Congress party Chief Jaganmohan Reddy has earlier informed the Speaker that his MLAs are ready to apologise and will do it very soon. Jagan said that his MLAs don’t feel it a shame to apologiseinstead they are just correcting their mistake. Jagan said “We don’t feel shy for saying sorry if we did something wrong.“

Jagan Displays Dignity In Assembly

YSR Congress party president Y S Jaganmohan Reddy on Thursday put up a dignified posture in the Assembly by tendering an apology on behalf of his party MLAs and withdrawing the no-confidence motion against Speaker Kodela Sivaprasada Rao. Though the ruling Telugu Desam Party members tried to provoke him by moving a privilege motion, Jagan showed dignity in accepting his mistake.
"If my party members in the House used any unparliamentary language against the Speaker and behaved indecently in a manner that hurt the Speaker, I offer unconditional apology on behalf of all my party MLAs," he said. Jagan maintained that he and his party members have respect for the integrity and sanctity of the Speaker's chair as well as Speaker in personal.
He explained that his party leaders lost temper and rushed towards the well and the podium shouting slogans for justice when the ruling party members and ministers used provocative language. But his MLAs did not intend to lower the dignity of the Speaker’s chair. Minister for Legislative Affairs Yanamala Ramakrishnudu demanded that the Opposition party leaders deserve some punishment.
However, after Jagan's apology, he said the government never wanted to expel the Opposition members from the House and never thought to run the Assembly without the Opposition.
After a long discussion, the Speaker urged the members to maintain dignity of the House while using language and be careful with body language since everything that is going on in the House is being watched by people through live channels. He also assured the House that if he was proved guilty of bias or otherwise, he would resign from the post to maintain the dignity of the House.

T-Assembly Concludes With Out TDP Members!

The budget session of the Telangana Assembly concluded on Thursday without the presence of the Telugu Desam Party MLAs, who got suspended for the entire session on the Day one itself.
The ousted TDP members tried to get into Telangana Assembly premises on the last day of Assembly budget session on Thursday, but the security personnel prevented them from doing so. Subsequently the TD members like Revanth Reddy, S Veeraiah and others got into a brawl with the policemen stating that they have every right to enter the premises except the House followed by suspension.
Despite heated argument and scuffle, marshals and security personnel did not allow them inside the Assembly.
TD's Telangana president L Ramana was also arrested at Gun Park at the same time. Later, the police took them into custody and shifted them to the NTR Trust Bhavan, the TD headquarters at Banjara Hills.
While the session was going on inside, the TD members with no other go had to resort to protest persistently which failed to serve the purpose.
It may be noted that Speaker S Madhusudhana Chary had suspended the TD members for entire session for disrespecting the national anthem when played on the first day of session on March 7, when Governor ESL Narasimhan was addressing the joint session of Assembly and Council.
Probably this is first time in the history that elected representatives of a party faced axe for the entire session for disrespecting the national anthem by standing on benches and throwing speech copies on to Governor during his speech. Though Jana Reddy cried foul that the suspension is undemocratic, the treasury benches did not heed to the escalating demand to withdraw the suspension.
Time and again, the TD members expressed anguish at the "dictatorial" rule of the government. As stated by Legislature Affairs Minister T Harish Rao, the officials reacted swiftly every time the TD members tried to thwart the proceedings.
A couple of times, the ousted TD members squatted at the Speaker Chamber in the Lobbies seeking withdrawal of their suspension.

Shocking: AP Govt. announces Jackpot to MLAs!

The Andhra Pradesh government has taken a shocking decision to gift all its MLAs the most expensive iPhone 6. The Andhra Pradesh government has made this after the recent budget sessions that happened. It seems every MLA was personally asked about a which gift they would prefer, while most of them wanted an iPhone 6!
Don’t you think that’s going to wake up another controversy from the common public? When there are many problems that are to be solved, the MLAs are in need of an iPhone 6 is the shooting question from everyone. It seems these mobiles will be given to them very soon.
Many of them objected this decision of gifting these costly phones and instead invest that money in the power and water problems that will hit soon in Andhra Pradesh. These kind 0f gifts are nothing new, in the past iPads were gifted to them. The money that the representatives enjoy is the money of a common man, so how can they resort to waste that money for their happiness?

Exclusive: Watch Reggie Watts' Bizarre Short Film 'Brasilia,' From the Director of 'Creative Control'

Editor's note: Before he became the bandleader for "The Late Late Show With James Corden," performance artist Reggie Watts appeared in the SXSW film "Creative Control," a satiric vision of the near future directed by Benjamin Dickinson. But that wasn't the first time Watts, also known for his role as the sidekick on "Comedy Bang! Bang!", collaborated with Dickinson on a quirky take on the world of tomorrow. The filmmaker also directed a short film early last year based on an idea created by Watts and scored by synth artist Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, which we're happy to premiere here. Watts provided Indiewire with the following description of the film:
An alternately factual documentary presented by nameless hosts Reggie Watts and Carolina Ravassa, "Brasilia" takes viewers on a whirlwind tour of the famed capital of Brazil. In topics ranging from architecture, religious ceremonial practices, and spiritual conscious alignment, Reggie and Carolina traverse some of the world's most impossibly futuristic human landscapes, extolling earnest advice about the culture, practices, and habits of the Brasilienese people. With a synthesizer soundtrack from the late 60/early 70s, BRASILIA exposes the unknown truths of this exotic utopian city nestled in the cradle of South America.
