Posted: 31 Jul 2012 05:53 AM PDT

It's high time that Amy Jackson found an apartment in Chennai as her workload in Kollywood has increased. The English girl who stole the heart of Tamil audiences through Madharasapattinam is currently doing AL Vijay's Thaandavam and Shankar's I

Her AL Vijay directed Chiyaan Vikram starrer Thandaavam is getting ready for release, while her Shankar directed I shooting is going on in Chennai. She has offers pouring in from Tamil and Telugu filmmakers.
However, Amy the Liverpool girl prefers to stay in her rented apartment in Bandra in Mumbai with her Ek Tha Diwana co-star Prateik Babbar, with whom she is in a relationship. Remember her Bollywood career failed to take off after her Hindi debut film with Prateik bombed.
Last week Amy was in Chennai shooting continuously for days with Vikram for Shankar's I. For the weekend she wentback to Mumbai to be near Prateik.
Today morning she is back in Chennai for the trailer launch of her Chiyaan Vikram starrer Thaandavam. If Amy is serious about a career in south films, she should stay put in Chennai.

Actor Asin and Kareena jointly rule Bollywood’s 100 Cr club!

Posted: 31 Jul 2012 05:19 AM PDT

Last weekend was memorable for Asin. Her new release Bol Bachchan touched Rs102 Crore and joined Bollywood's exclusive Rs 100 Cr club. For the girl from Kochi it is nothing new as Bol Bachchan is her fourth film after Ghajini, Ready and Housefull 2 to join the elite club.

Asin now shares the top spot with Kareena Kapoor who too has four films that figure in the 100 Cr club- 3 Idiots, Golmaal 3, Bodyguard and RA One. Asin in an earlier interview had said: "I am not bothered about numbers, I am happy that it happened with my films. It is not that I was expecting it to happen; it is not in my hands. I enjoyed doing my part".
Today Asin, is the biggest success story of a girl who made her debut in south Indian films making it big in Bollywood. Down south she has an awesome strike rate at the box-office. Nearly 90 % of the films which she has acted in Tamil and Telugu over a period of five years were super hits.
In Bollywood out of five releases (Ghajini, London Dreams,Ready, Housefull 2 & Bol Bachchan) only one has failed. Today four of her films feature in the Rs 100 Cr club, which is simply amazing.
Asin in an exclusive interview to PTI said: "I am happy I have come this far here (Bollywood) on my own without godfathers, grandfathers or millionaire boyfriends. It is rare for an artist to get acceptance by the north as well as the south audiences, and I have thankfully managed that."
Her detractors say that she had "oodles of luck at the box-office." But industry pundits believe that it is a combination of making the right choices of commercial films, hard work and fiery determination to reach the top. Asin is still one of the hottest actors in the endorsement circuit, a proof that she has tremendous reach and goodwill among the millions.
