Hansika to enter politics?

Posted: 14 Dec 2011 03:50 AM PST

Hansika has just completed her final semester as a student of Political Science and will be graduating soon. She somehow managed it amidst her hectic shooting schedule. Her choice of subject has resulted in speculation that like Kushboo with whom she is already earning comparisons for obvious reasons she will also enter into politics.
The vivacious actress said that she is very interested in politics and follows political developments with the utmost interest but as of now films will remain her main priority. She has no idea what the future holds for her though she added with a wink not ruling out the possibility entirely.

Posted: 14 Dec 2011 03:35 AM PST

Produced by Ronnie Screwvala Mugamoodi went on floors from day before yesterday. Jeeva, Narain and Pooja Hegde are so excited working with Mysskin with Sathya in charge of cinematography while K is composing the music for the lyrics penned by Kabilan and Madhan Karky. Mysskin while speaking about this film to the media said, " This is my dream film. Right from my childhood I have read the stories of super heroes. I have enjoyed it. I wanted to make a film like that. Now I have got the opportunity to do this. I can confidently say that this kind of film has never been made in Tamil so far. Narain is donning the villain role. I know martial arts. Jeeva has also learnt martial arts. Dhilip Subbarayan and Shekar are choreographing the Kung Fu sequences. So far such fighting sequences featuring in this film would not have featured in any Indian films so far. This film is being made with the intention that it should entertain the children as well as the elderly people. I have completed the story of the Part 2 of Mugamudi even before commencing the shooting of the Part 1. There will be five parts."

Ram Gopal Varma's Unusual 26/11

Posted: 14 Dec 2011 03:30 AM PST

Maverick filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma always sticks to the unorthodox style of filmmaking. His voracious attraction to real life incidents marks his uniqueness. The director is all set to make a film based on 26/11. The incident will remain undiminished in the hearts of every Indian as the three day live telecast of the 'Terrorist-Hostages-Police Forces' drama.

But don't predict the film to be travelling on the same lines of an action packed thriller drama as Ram Gopal Varma says, " My attempt now would be not only to capture on film the physical aspect but also the behind the scenes aspect of what exactly happened from the time Kasab and rest of the team landed on Amar Singh Solanki's trawler in the high seas, till kasab's heroic capture by the late Tukaram Ombale at Girgaum chowpatty. This will be intercut with what the various gallant police officers did in their attempt to get the situation under control.

Rommel Rodrigues, author of "Kasab the face of 26/11", who has an extensive and encyclopedic knowledge of the event will be a helping hand to Ram Gopal Varma.
