Actor Sarath in Vijay's 'Thupaki'

Posted: 14 May 2012 04:29 AM PDT

Sarath Kumar's penchant to do multi-starrers seems to have reached a high, as the actor has been apparently non-stop signing interesting projects with other heroes, in which he is expected to play important roles.
The president of South Indian Film Artistes Association, who is doing a crucial character in Superstar Rajinikanth's 'Kochadaiyaan', is said to be playing a meaty character in Vijay's forthcoming film 'Thupaki', directed by A R Murugadoss.
"There is an all-important character in Thupaki apart from the one Vijay is doing. When Sarath was approached for the role, he listened to the script and happily accepted the offer," say sources.
Sarath, a bankable hero by himself, has been spearheading a change in Tamil cinema. The MLA, who is the chief of All India Samathuva Makkal Katchi, is creating a trend by being part of multi-starrers like 'Pazhassi Raja', 'Kanchana', 'Mynaa' (Kannada) and 'Kochadaiyaan'.

Actess Ranjitha files suit against Kanchi Sankaracharya

Posted: 14 May 2012 03:53 AM PDT

Actress Ranjitha, an ardent follower of Swami Nithyananda, on Friday filed a defamation suit against Kanchi Sankaracharya Sri Jayandra Saraswathi Swamigal for his alleged comments on her.
She approached a magistrate court in Chennai to file a criminal defamation complaint against the Kanchi Sankaracharya. She sought to initiate defamation proceedings against the pontiff for his reported statements against her.
The actress along with her advocates came to the Egmore Magistrate Court to file the case. Speaking to journalists later, Ranjitha claimed there was no truth in the comments made by the Kanchi Seer.
In her complaint, Ranjitha said she is a strong believer in the principles of Hinduism and had attended discourses of Nithyananda in Tamil Nadu and Karnataka and became his disciple.
She claimed that the insinuation by the Kanchi Seer, during an interview on Wednesday, said that she was always in the company of Nithyananda which subjected her to "immense agony and stress" and was defamatory.

Actor Karthi - Kajal team up again?

Posted: 14 May 2012 03:43 AM PDT

Looks like an 'azhagu rani' has been zeroed in for Karthi Sivakumar's forthcoming film 'All In All Azhagu Raja', to be helmed by Rajesh M, who tasted hat-trick success thanks to 'Oru Kal Oru Kannadi'.
If sources are to be believed, Kajal Aggarwal has been roped in for the film, which is a comedy caper quite typical to Rajesh's earlier ventures. "The script work is currently on and it will be completed soon," they say.
Santhanam, the inevitable part of Rajesh films, is doing a crucial role in 'All In All Azhagu Raja'. Remember Karthi and Santhanam delivered a firebrand performance in 'Siruthai' and their chemistry was much talked about.
Likewise, Karthi and Kajal acted together in 'Naan Mahan Alla' earlier, besides a television commercial. 'All In Azhagu Raja', to be produced by KE Gnanavel Raja of Studio Green, is expected to hit the floors soon.

Actress Shriya Makes Her Re-Entry Through Bi-Lingual

Posted: 14 May 2012 03:26 AM PDT

Shriya Saran is one of the leading beauties in Kollywood. She was away from action for quite sometime in Kollywood. She was last seen in a dance number with Vikram in 'Rajapattai'.

Shriya is making her re-entry in Kollywood through a bilingual project named 'Chandra'. It is supposedly being named as 'Chandra'. This 'Chandra' is directed by Roopa Iyer.

On confirming the signing of Shriya, Roopa Iyer said, "Yes, we have roped in Shriya who plays the female lead role in our film. This film 'Chandra' is a real-life story. It deals with the life of a last generation princess and the love story in her life. Extensive researches have been conducted by me about the lives of the princesses post India becoming a Republic".

Initially, Divya was roped in this film. She suddenly walked out of the film quoting her dis-satisfaction over the script as the reason. Roopa Iyer said, "Shriya is a very good choice, because she has good appeal in both Tamil Nadu and Karnataka".

This movie 'Chandra' is also the Shriya's debut movie in a full-length Heroine role in Sandalwood.
