UTV produces in Telugu- ATIDHI

Its time again in Tollywood to welcome a new member into the production family. Not from Tamil Nadu or Kerala but, this time its from Bollywood. Yes, the prestigous production company is now all set to start productions in Telugu.

“Rang De Basanti”, “Lakshya”, “Khosla ki Ghoda”, “Swadesh”, “Dhee”, “The Name Sake”, and “Life in the Metro“-all these are the prodoctions of UTV. “Jodha Akbar” with Hrithik Roshan and “Fashion” with Mathur Bhandarkar are the projects in process for UTV. Also, UTV has plans for starting TV channels in regional languages out of whch there is Telugu also. And the good news is that Mahesh Babu has already been signed by UTV for three films which come up to 55 crores. This comes as a really gud relief for Tollywood which is upset with soo many tensions.While Attollywood predict that this is surely gonna improve the present condition of Tollywood, there is also large error for lack of proper cooperation from the film circles.

Anyways, let’s wish UTV all the best for its step in Tollywood.


Mamatha in Nitin’s next flick

Mamatha Mohandas will be the the heroine in Nitin’s yet to be named movie. Ravi. C. Kumar is directing the movie and Venkat is producing it under R. R. movie Makers banner. The movie is yet to start its shooting. Music is by Chakri.

Mamtha Mohandas, the malayali kutti started her career in telugu film industry as a playback singer. She first sang the super hit song ‘rakhee…rakhee’ in Rakhee movie. Then she sang for an item number in Jagadam and then an another item number in Chiranjeevi starer Shankar Dada Zindabad. Devi Sri Prasad composed music for all the three movies. Now she sang for an item number yet another time in Ntr starer Yamadonga.

Besides singing she is also busy acting in telugu movies. She was first seen on telugu screens in a telugu dub malayalam movie Pokiri pilla along with Mamooty. Now is ready to set the screens on fire with Ntr in Yamadonga. Even before the release of this movie she is being flooded with offers to act in movies. She was supposed to act in Don with Nagarjuna and now she is booked with Nitin.

Hope Mamatha becomes successful both in acting as well as singing and sizzels Tollywood with her beauty and charms.



Don’t mistake Ramanaidu as the Movie Moghul, who earned a place in the Guinness Book of World Records for making the highest number of films.This Rama Naidu is the grandson of that great producer and the elder son of noted producer D Suresh Babu. This Ramanaidu is popular among the Telugu film industry circles as Ranababu.

At a time when everyone are strongly believing that Ranababu would remain behind the screen like his father, there was a strong rumour that he is playing a hero soon.

It may be recalled here that Rana is very busy in managing a graphic works unit called ‘Spirit’.

However, Rana is very fair, six-foot tall, handsome and had an impressive personality. He had all the qualities for a film hero.

It is further learnt that Dr D Ramanaidu is going to produce the movie and it would go to sets in December 2007 and would be released during the summer of 2008.

One had to wait and watch how far this rumour would be proved true.



Actress Vedika has a uncanny resemblance to Nagma and is therefore popularly called Jr. Nagma. She made her debut two years ago with a bilingual film “Sivakasi” is Tamil and Telugu with Arjun in the lead. The film failed miserably and she was out of action for a while.

Lawrence cast her in “Muni” and from them on her career has picked up. She is now getting busy with offers pouring in. She is currently action with Kalyan Ram in the film “Vijayadasami”. She is also reportedly in contention for the heroine role in Bommarillu Bhaskar’s new film with Allu Arjun. She is also playing opposite Simbu in a Tamil film.



The R.R.Movie Makers piloted by Suresh Reddy is a reputed film production house with a good resource base. This unit banked heavily on director S.V.Krishna Reddy, who in recent times seems to have lost that deft touch, which raises an average movie into a hit merely by sensitive handling of a few scenes. With “Mayajal” and “Bahumathi” sinking without a trace, Krishna Reddy is said to be viewed as a magician without the magic wand. The accountants of this banner are said to be in a dilemma while preparing the balance sheet. In which column should S.V.Krishna Reddy be posted? Assets or liabilities?



Tollywood’s item girl Mumaith Khan, who rapidly progressed from an item girl to vamp and then into heroine, did something strangely surprising and not in tune with the usual practices of Tollywood. All artistes normally raise their remuneration levels in accordance with the popularity gained by hits.

There was some buzz about Mumaith raising her remuneration after her recent successes. She is believed to have been signed for Rs. 20 Lakhs to play the female lead in Maisamma IPS. Even now, she charges Rs. 3 lakhs for each item number. In Operation Duryodhana, two songs and some scenes were picturised on her and she was paid Rs. 6 lakhs. Mumaith Khan reportedly gave Rs. 1 lakh back to Posani Krishna Murali. Her gesture was in response to the affectionate treatment she and her mother received on the sets. A very graceful gesture in an environment, where good deeds are forgotten faster than the life of a prion. Is there any doubt that Mumaith Khan will certainly find a pivotal place in the cast of Posani’s next venture Aapada Mokkula Vaadu ?



Telugu movie “Om Shanthi”, starring Rajiv Kanakala as hero, under the banner of iStudios is about the evils of terrorism and message to the youth to effectively tackle the menace. This film is being directed by D.Rajnag, who had been in the direction department of V.V.Vinayak. Music was composed by Vijaya Varshini and the lyrics were penned by Chandra Bose. At present, songs are being recorded at Ramanaidu Studios. The producer said,” This movie gives the audience a socially relevant message. 75% of the shooting will take place in Hyderabad and 30% in Malayasia. We are also introducing a new face as heroine. The shooting will start soon.” He further said that his next venture would be a big budget film. Director Rajnag said,” The theme of the film deals with extremism and the role of youth. As the title implies, the film calls for peace by putting an end to violence.”



There are many specialities in the socio-fantasy film “Yamadonga” directed by SS Rajamouli and produced by Cherry and Urmila Gunnam on the banner of Viswamitra Creations with NTR as hero. Dr Mohanbabu is playing a prestigious role of Yama, and seven heroines like Priyamani, Mamata Mohandas, Khushboo, Navneet Kaur, Veda Sastry, Preeti Jhangiani, Rambha are acting in the film, while the late NTR and the late Soundarya would appear on the screen with the help of graphics.It is reliably learnt that Young Rebel Star Prabhas had reportedly portrayed the attire of Viswamitra for designing the graphic of the logo of the banner.

It may be mentioned here that “Chatrapati”, the biggest hit in Prabhas’ film career, was directed by Rajamouli. Hence it is learnt that Prabhas had essayed the character as a mark of gratitude.



Telugu actor Mahesh Babu has decided to be part of a film that his childhood friend Jasti Hemambar would be directing. The trend about staring in friend’s movies is catching up. Apparently because of the good rapport and understanding between the two individuals collaborating becomes easy. Recently Prabhas acted in “Munna” which is his friend Vamsi Paidipally’s film. Now the movie Mahesh is acting is called “Mirchi”.



The moderate success of “Jagadam” results Ram’s career going fine. YVS Chowdary hasalready signed Ram for a movie titled “Rey”. Now Ram is being considered for a movie to be directed by Sreenu Vytala. Ram heavily banks upon his looks to attract audiences to theaters. He has this perfect combination of a youthful look with a challenging face. In one survey done recently it was found that he has the largest number of female fans among the young lot of heroes.



Telugu Hero Rajendra Prasad’s film with Visu Films International Pvt Ltd banner is titled “Mee Sreyobhilashi”, according to its producer CC Reddy. He said that the film’s title is cent percent apt to the characterization of the hero. “With his rich track record of 30 years as a star artiste, he won the hearts of the audience with his Aa Naluguru, Erra Mandaram, Punya Sthree and such other films.” The film is going for its next and final shooting schedule at the Horsley Hills and Srisailam from July 20. The postproduction works would start by month end. The film has relevalant social message. Incidentally, Rajendra Prasad’s birthday falls on July 19.

Sivaji bothers Black color - Kanimozhi M.P in Hatred!

The writer and Poet Kanimozhi who participated in the Tamilnadu Mutpooku Writers Association conducted function has conveyed her negative views about the movie Sivaji. It’s not even a month since the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M.Karunanidhi who gave the bravery sword and crowned Rajni and appreciated at the Chandramuki’s Success Function. In a fraction of days from then, his daughter Kanimozhi has come out with negative sense about the movie Sivaji, this has turned everyone’s attention.

What has Kanimozhi told about this?

Todays world has started working towards destroying the nature and tradition of tamilians and pluck them from their roots. Sivaji the movie is a perfect example of this. They proudly say that Black color is the color of Tamilians in the beginning of the movie. But, after some scenes have gone, the mark is , why they go in search of Fair & Lovely to Remove the Black Color which they himself told its a Tamilians colour. Is it really Fair on there part?

What was so embarrassing was that, they made use of our respective Tamil Professor (Soloman Poppaiya) to act in a scene as if he is criticizing and addressing Tamil Womans, that is name containing proper grammar and as well typical Tamil womens who’s appearance are Black, while Kanimozhi went in depth and was keep on speaking with involvement about this issue, the crowd who gathered started applauding.

Since the poet and writer has got an additional responsibility as an M.P, the whole Tamil film industry has turned their attentions towards this complicated issue.


Sivaji in Hindi, Chinese and Japanese

Sivaji is still making news. The movie has been received very well in the northern parts of the country much to the surprise of the producers AVM.

The movie has reportedly earned more that Rs. 1.5 crore which is more than any other southern movie has managed up country. After director Shankar and music director A.R. Rahman agree to the idea, the dubbing process will commence. This has encouraged the AVM group to dub the movie into Hindi.

Their reasoning? If the movie was able to collect so much without subtitles or dubbing, it would surely earn more if it is dubbed in Hindi. AVM has aleady commenced dubbing the movie in Chinese and Japanese to cater to the fans of Rajini in those regions.
