Actor Vikram - Samantha's I boasts off Rs 70 crore

Posted: 25 Jun 2012 12:39 PM PDT

If it is Shankar is at the helm of affairs, it has to be a grand and glitzy affair. The director's forthcoming film 'I', which has Vikram and Samantha in lead roles, is no exception to this.
According to sources, the film is estimated to be made at a budget of Rs 70 crore. In addition to the Tamil versions, Telugu and Hindi versions will also be made simultaneously.
"Producer Aascar V Ravichandran is happy about joining hands with Shankar and Vikram after the super hit Anniyan. All that he wants is a grand venture without any compromise on the budget," sources say.
The film will have music by A R Rahman and some of the top technicians of the world are working in it. With dialogues by writer duo Subha, the movie has story and screenplay by Shankar himself. It is a romantic thriller.

ActrTapsee doesn’t agree with ‘second lead’ concept

Posted: 25 Jun 2012 12:32 PM PDT

Actress Taapsee has signed up to be part of two multi-starrers in Tamil – Vishnuvardhan's project with Ajith, Arya and Nayanthara, and Sundar C's next with Vishal and Varalaxmi. While she is glad that she's getting to experiment with her roles in Kollywood, there's one thing that the Aadukalam actress doesn't quite agree with – the concept of playing the second lead!

Refuting reports that are in circulation in tinsel town, which says she's playing the second lead in the Ajith flick, and Varalxmi plays the second lead in the Vishal flick, she says, "I don't understand the concept of playing a second lead in a film. I've read the script of Sundar C's film, and I know what our characters are like. None of us play the conventional 'second lead' in the film. I don't know how people arrive upon the second lead idea. While in my Telugu film 'Mr Perfect', I was called the second lead because I had less screenspace, even in Veera, though I had more screenspace, I was still called the second lead!"

One More Addition to Ajith-Vishnuvardhan Project

Sultry beauty Suman Ranganath will be seen in a Tamil film after a long time. The actress has been roped in to play a journalist in the Ajith-Vishnuvardhan project. With the second schedule happening in Bengaluru now, Suman will be joining the sets.

Suman was seen in Tamil films like Pudhu Paattu, Kurumbukkaran, Maanagara Kaaval and Unnai Vazhthi Padugiren. She then moved on to Bollywood while staying put in the Kannada film industry firmly.

This untitled project also has Arya, Nayanthara and Taapsee playing the lead roles along with Ajith. Vishnuvardhan is planning this film as a multi-starrer with music scored by Yuvan Shankar Raja.

Irandam Ulagam progresses in Georgia

Posted: 25 Jun 2012 12:20 PM PDT

Selvaraghavan is happy that his Irandam Ulagam bilingual in Tamil and Telugu produced by PVP Cinemas is making brisk progress.

For the last two weeks he has been shooting in Georgia in Russia.
He is shooting for this romantic musical in Georgia with Arya and Anushka. The film has music by Harris Jayaraj and camera by Ramji.
Selvaraghavan has tweeted from Georgia: "A lot of people told me that the story of Irandam Ulagam can`t be made as a film. They suggested animation. Here we are making it as a film."
Selva`s justification is that, "When you want to make a film all you need is to believe in your vision and follow with all your heart. Things might go wrong but you will get your vision."
