Director Shankar and his ‘du’ sentiment

Posted: 25 Aug 2012 08:37 AM PDT

Shankar, the showman of Tamil cinema, is busy with his next film, I, featuring Vikram and Amy Jackson in the lead.

Produced at a staggering cost of Rs 140 crore by Aascar Ravichandran, the music has been composed by A.R. Rahman. The title of the Telugu version is Manoharudu.
In Tamil, I means beauty, king and vulnerability while Manoharudu means handsome guy. Shankar has an affinity for titles ending with 'du' in Tollywood.
Titles of many of his earlier Telugu hits also end with 'du' — Premikudu (Kaadhalan),Okay Okkadu (Mudhalvan), Bharatheeyu-du (Indian) and Aparichudu (Anniyan).
While P.C. Sriram is behind the camera, we hear that Shankar is on the lookout for yet another heroine for the film.

Actor Vijay in another blockbuster remake?

Posted: 25 Aug 2012 06:31 AM PDT

Salman Khan's Ek Tha Tiger (ETT) is already the second biggest blockbuster in Bollywood history and still it is only 10 days old at the box-office. There are already rumors about the Tamil and Telugu remakes of ETT.

Generally Salman makes his films based on Southern hits but now it is the reverse as there is stiff competition to purchase ETT's Tamil remake rights. Editor Mohan has supposedly purchased the Tamil remake rights and his son Jayam Raja might direct this one, given his expertise in handling remakes.
None other than Vijay might fill the shoes of Salman, as the Indian RAW agent sent on a mission to Ireland. Vijay and Raja have already worked together in Velayudham. Official updates are awaited on this. Till then the guessing game would continue.
