Actor Vijay in Ek Tha Tiger Tamil remake?

Posted: 23 Aug 2012 09:42 AM PDT

Ever since Salman Khan's Ek Tha Tiger became a roaring success, there is a lot of demand for its remake. The latest buzz in k-town is that Vijay will be seen in this commercial success.

Though many filmmakers are in the race to bag the remake rights, we hear that Jayam Raja is keen on getting the project. Also he wishes to rope in Ilayathalapathy Vijay in the remake.
The duo who had earlier worked together in Velayudham (again a remake of a Telugu film) was a commercial hit. Vijay & Jayam Raja who are known for remaking films (from other regional languages) that become a huge success are said to be a good combo for this Kabir Khan directed Ek Tha Tiger, produced under the banner of Yash Raj, which featured Katrina Kaif in the lead.
We hear that Raja wants Vijay, as he feels that Ilayathalapthy will do justice to Salman's role in this action-romantic-thriller, which talks about the life of a secret agent, who is on a mission. In fact, reports also suggest that Vijay is the favorite choice of many directors.
Ek Tha Tiger though got mixed reviews from critics for not having a very appealing story-screenplay, the film drew a huge crowd on the Independence Day release (though being a Wednesday) and the success continued over the weekend. It has made huge Box Office collections and is said to have collected Rs 100 plus crore in 5 days in India.

Director Shankar orders Amy to stop partying

Posted: 23 Aug 2012 02:50 AM PDT

Director Shankar is among the soft-spoken persons in the film industry despite being called as the Showman Of South Indian Cinema. But, when it comes to his films, Shankar is a stickler for perfection.

This is why he allegedly asked Brit Beauty Amy Jackson, whom he has cast opposite Vikram as the female lead in I, to keep her partying ways in check until the end of the shoot.
Apparently, Amy was turning up late or with sleepless eyes for the shoot and Shankar who likes to make his heroines as vivacious as possible on screen was quite upset with the output of Amy's scenes as the actress looked far from being fresh due to her late-night gigs.
The concerned filmmaker called Amy aside and told her in no uncertain terms that she has to stay away from the party circuit until the end of his film's shoot as he doesn't want it to disrupt his film's outcome. We hear that an embarrassed Amy realized her folly and promised Shankar that she will mend her ways.
Now, looks like this is one girl who will take constructive 'advice'.
