Screen Talk: Hansika Testing Patience Of All

The image “http://www.greatandhra.com/newsimages/haniskha1189671250.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

This is the impression that is making rounds in the industry. 'Desamuduru' fame Hansika is taking long duration to practice the dialogues given to her be it in Hindi or any south Indian language. Hansika is not finding her comfortable with South Indian films only due to language barrier. She is not a quick learner and not the one who can adapt to new surroundings and language quickly. Many say that she has an introvert nature.

Off late, we were told that she took longer time to practice dialogues during the shooting of 'Aap Ka Suror' as well. Directors would certainly get restless with her, say some. On the other hand her remuneration is also on the sky high. And she claims bigger sum for south Indian films as she has to work hard. But directors and producers tend to pay good sum for the girls who can finish off the work quickly and accurately.

Is Hansika listening?

eel Buzz: Hero With Middle Class Mentality

The image “http://www.greatandhra.com/newsimages/sivaji-hero1189670392.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

We have a hero with a typical middle class mentality. He spends less, saves more and aims only on small things. It is indeed true that he aimed at bigger things but as things didn't work in his favor he is confining his desires to smaller things, say the sources. He is none other than hero Shivaji.

He aimed at something big by throwing a stone with mass oriented film 'Seetaramudu'. But that turned upside down. Again he is now acting in comedy-action, 'State Rowdy-Veediki Antha Scene Ledhu'. It is said that he is aiming at regular income be it small or big. As per the interview he gave to a tabloid, he says he is ready to act in any role on any banner and supported the concept that 'variety is the spice of life'. His motive is saving the money and purchasing little properties in safer zone. He is also preparing to continue his life happily despite the abrupt terminus of his career. This talented actor has got class appeal followed by 'Missamma' of Neelakanta.

The image “http://www.greatandhra.com/newsimages/sada1189670226.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

The real name of Sada is Sadaf Mohammed Sayyed. She hails from Rathnagiri in Maharashtra . She got first chance to act while she was in first year of engineering in Mumbai. She bagged film fare with first film 'Jayam' itself. Sada's father is a doctor and mother is a bank officer. She is taking Rs 20 lakhs per film now.

For quite sometime Sada was silent without more films. But now she is bagging continuous offers from Malayalam and Tamil. Even in Telugu she is in demand now. She is acting in Takkari and the other film Adi Oka Idile. After 'Classmates' Sada has presented some stills with big oomph factor. That turned the heads of some film makers in different fields and even her PR activity is turned strong. She got promoters in Malayalam and Tamil fields as well. That way she is acting in 'Novel' in Malayalam with Jayaram as hero. She is also going to act along with Arjun for a Tamil film.

Let us see if she reaches new milestones in this new phase.

The image “http://www.greatandhra.com/newsimages/madhushalini11189661297.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

Seventymm is the new firm that started its mission of showing films to people at cheapest prices after Moser Bear. While Moser Bear is giving CDs and DVDs at dead cheap rates say Rs 30- Rs 20, Seventymm is giving them on rental basis at cheapest prices. It is asking for membership enrolments and promises to give film Cds as and when asked.

Actress Madhu Shalini launched that yesterday. Seventymm has procured 15,000 films so far from various languages- Hindi Telugu, English, Tamil, Bengali, Marathi, Assemese, Oriya, Gujarathi, Malayalam and Bhojpuri. The modus operandi is on monthly rental basis that starts from Rs 199 to Rs 2745.

The CDs on rental basis will be delivered at door step once an SMS or phone call is given. Madhushalini joined as a member in this.

Buzz: Mastermind behind Hyd blasts dead?

Shahid Bilal, the prime accused behind the twin blasts that rocked the city of Hyderabad in August and the man suspected to be the mastermind of a series of terror attacks in the country, is reportedly dead, if the media reports are anything to go by. It is learnt that Bilal may have been shot dead in Karachi, just 5 days after the terror attacks in Hyderabad.

The speculation is rife that Bilal could have been been killed by the ISI, in a bid to cover up its own link with the terrorist after Indian intelligence agencies began their hot pursuit of the man.

Meanwhile, there is an alternate theory doing the rounds that Bilal could have been a victim of rivalry between factions of HUJI, the terror group that he took command of in 2005.

According to Sources, Harkat Ul Jehadi Islami (HUJI) is being touted as the prime outfit behind the Hyderabad blasts and the face of HUJI being none other than Mohd Abdul Shahided alias Bilal.

Spotlight: Actresses Fighting With 'Boobs'

The image “http://www.greatandhra.com/newsimages/RakhiSawant-kasmeera1189666833.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

This sounds something inappropriate but we are writing the same terms as the actresses have used same terms in public. We are saying about Rakhi Sawanth who got her breast implants removed as they affected her while dancing. She said that she felt painful while dancing because of implants. Hence she got them removed.

She participated in a dance show with 'removed implant breast' and Kashmeera commented her saying that she cannot be noticed now as she has no 'assets'. But Rakhi and her boy friend fired back saying that it is the talent that matters but not the vital stats.

Rakhi's boy friend Abhishek also says that he would have knocked out on the face if that was told by any man. 'Since it was comment between lady and lady I kept silent without giving job to my muscle' he added.

Kashmira on the other hand along with her partner Krushna said, "I don't know why Rakhi misunderstood me. I never look up any lady with big assets, and never look down any with removed implants. I simply said that there is change in her which turned hard to recognize for me".

She also said that it is the competitive fight between Rakhi and she and she would face it in sportive manner and prove what she is. Rakhi also countered in similar way making that dance show a reality one.

This is the pic of Kamal Hasan making rounds in internet stating that it is still from Dasavataram. These days many morphed images of the actor are seen in emails. This could be either one of those or may be a real pic from the film in any song sequence!

Andhra Talk: Is Lord Rama A Fiction?

Lord Rama is the epitome of Ideal Man. He has been the icon of dharma for large set of population. But the central government dropped a petition in SC stating that Lord Rama is a myth and his story is only a fiction. It took the support of Archeological Survey of India that stated that there are no archeological evidences found in support of the existence of Lord Rama. But is a mere non-availability of archaeological evidence enough to declare that Lord Rama is a myth? Rama's story took place way back eons that today's archeology cannot touch the traces of it.

Let me share some things said by our ancient sages during the calculation of time. They have no calculators to count numbers to fractions, no telescopes to look into space and no microscope to examine the cells and atoms. But still they were successful in naming nine planets, knowing the nature of sun and moon, classifying a year into twelve months, and dividing each month into two equal halves as 'Krisna Paksha' and 'Sukla Paksha' and in turn the same month into four weeks. The same was adopted by English calendar as well although the beginning of the year varies. Sages could accomplish all this with their invincible thought power and clairvoyance.

Now coming to the point the same sages broadly classified the time into 4 yugas.

Kritha Yuga- 34,56,000 years
Treta Yuga- 17,28,000 years
Dwapara Yuga- 8,64,000 years
Kaliyuga- span of 4,32,000 years

We are in Kaliyuga and completed 5107 years as on 2007 AD, March.

As per astrological calculations Mahabharatha war took place somewhere around 3300 BC at Kurukshetra. So, that's just about 5300 years ago. So, that's almost the conclusion of Dwaparayuga. We have Egyptian mummies of about 4500 years old. Looking at the archaeological evidence for Mahabharatha period, we have Dwaraka which was found in sea near Gujarat. Since there is no culture of pyramids and mummifying corpses in India we have none of them. Dwaraka also is in sea that has gone in floods, earthquakes and continental drift.

Since Mahabharatha took place just 5200 years ago, we have this big evidence of Dwaraka. But Ramayana took place in Tretayuga. So, just imagine. That's way back some 9 lakh years ago. What archaeological evidences we have that narrates the days of 9 lakh years ago? We hardly find a few broken, decayed skeletons of dinosaurs. We find the pieces of bones of that huge animal. How can we find something related to mankind of that time? The continental drift, soil erosions, earthquakes and many geographical and geological factors would certainly influence each and every remaining of that time. They all would have swallowed by the deep layers of earth and immersed into soil by changing the original forms.

The only archaeological evidence that supports the existence of Rama is Rama Sethu between India and Srilanka. NASA took the pictures of that and apparently concluded that it is supporting the time of Ramayana. But we Indians are ruling out our own backbone of culture and civilization. Ramayana is beyond time. The intellectual muscle of Archaeological survey of India is not sufficient to unearth the bits and traces of Ramayana era from earthily soil. But it can be dug out from the hearts of millions of Hindus living in the sub continent and across the world. The beliefs are deep rooted and Lord Rama is the soul of those beliefs.

'Punnagai Desam' is the Tamil film that is getting remade into Telugu with Tarun, Sunil, Aakash and Rohit in main roles. Priyamani is playing female lead in that. Shahjahan is directing the film while NV Prasad and Paras Jain are the producers.

Well, everything is good with this film and it is only in finishing touches and completes its shooting by October.

The stills of this film were taken long time ago where a photograph in which Tarun, Akash, Rohit and Sunil were spotted in pink T-Shirts. 'Pink' is accepted in India as men's wear, but in the west it is treated different (gays wear pink shirts). There were a few jokes on these guys raising that point but they have taken that sportive. And it is said that Aakash explained the guy who cracked joke on them saying the color is not pink but falls in beige category. But is that not appearing 'pink' for us!

The shooting schedules are getting suffered a little extent with this. The eye fiction that hits a person makes him suffer for 4 days and it certainly spreads as being highly contagious. If one in a family gets the hit of this infection, the others also would suffer successively.

Hence many are sitting at home to avoid further spread of this infection through them. The infection is very high in Hyderabad and it is wide spread everywhere. The infected people are seen with black spectacles to reduce the spread from them and the uninfected people are also putting the goggles to reduce the chances of receiving the infection.

Kamal, Rajni to come together for Mani Ratnam film

The image “http://www.greatandhra.com/newsimages/rajanikanth1189608651.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

Rajnikanth and Kamal Haasan, the two stalwarts of Tamil cinema, are likely to come together in a Mani Ratnam film, say reports.

News about the trio working together started trickling in when Rajni and Mani Ratnam had a series of meetings. The two stars recently met, first at the Kamal's residence and then in the Raghavendra Mandapam, a wedding hall owned by Rajni, further igniting speculation.

According to the sources, Kamal will also produce the film.

If the project materialises, this will be their second film together. Three decades ago, director Bharathiraja had cast both the stars in his 1977 movie Pathinaru Vayathinile. Both Kamal and Rajni made their mark as the hero and the villain respectively in the film set in a rural ambience.

After that, they went on to carve their separate careers - Rajnikant remaining an anti-hero for a long time. When he started accepting popular roles, the tabloid media presented Kamal and him as clashing titans though both have always denied any personal enmity.

Both the stars have worked with Ratnam separately. Kamal was seen in the title role in Nayakan. Released in 1987, the film brought laurels to the director as an innovative filmmaker and Kamal too got overwhelming response for his memorable performance as a Mumbai gangster, modelled on the legendary Varadaraja Mudaliyar.

Similarly, Ratnam's Dalapathy, released in 1991, took Rajnikant several steps up the popularity ladder.
