Trivikram plans a multi-starrer with Venky and NTR

Hyderabad: Victory Venkatesh had a mention about his forthcoming projects during the promotions for his latest release ‘Guru’. Venkatesh, earlier played hero in films like ‘Nuvvu Naaku Nachaav’ and ‘Malleeswari’ and for those films Trivikram Srinivas penned the dialogues. After that Trivikram Srinivas turned a director but Venky did not get an opportunity to play hero in his direction. No doubt, it would be a crazy combination and Venky’s fans are eagerly waiting for one such film.

Recently, Venkatesh revealed that Trivikram has brought a story to him and it is a multi-starrer. It is well aware that it is Venkatesh who made a step forward and started multi-starrers like ‘Sitamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu’ and ‘Gopala Gopala’. However, this time, the multi-starrer would be quite different. Presently Trivikram is doing a film with Power Star. After that he had fixed a film with NTR. Now there is a doubt whether Trivikram narrated a multi-starrer subject to Tharak or what? It is good to recall here that Young Tiger NTR had done a song in Venkatesh-starrer ‘Chintakayala Ravi’.

In this backdrop, there is no chance that NTR may say no for a multi-starrer with Venky. So, let us wait and watch whether the multi-starrer subject brought to Venky by Trivikram is with NTR or not.

Hyderabad; The rift between NTR and Balakrishna which happened during flick of Dammu is once again witnessed on birthday of Balakrishna.

NTR Caught In Director’s Tweet, Irks Fans Of Other Heroes

 NTR is non controversial hero but sometimes faces trouble from the praises of his neighbours who are related to film industry.

Hyderabad; Film celebrities to catch up NTR’s eye with an over enthusiasm make some tweets which causes discomfort for other heroes.

Here is another example which lit fire in the fans of other heroes who are angry with the director. He is none other than Director Harish Shankar. On the eve of NTR’s birthday, Harish tweeted “Many more Happy returns of the day to the one and “only one” take hero@Tarak9999, wishing u loads of success with all ur upcoming projects”.

This tweet is so sweet for NTR fans but became hot for other heroes fans. Director Harish Shnakr is currently busy with the final schedules of Duvvada Jagannadham and is expecting a flick from NTR to direct, may be this is the reason he tweeted praising NTR, but this lead to a cold war within the fans. It is better for film celebrities to take care before giving a statement which disturbs the harmony in film industry.

Subramanian Swamy’s Berates Chiru, NTR and Rajnikanth

The redoubtable BJP MP Dr Subramanian Swamy has fixed opinions on NTR, Chiranjeevi and Rajinikanth and their politics.

New Delhi: BJP MP Subramanian Swamy gave analysis on cine stars who entered politics like late NTR and Chiru and about Rajini who appears to have plans to plunge into politics.

His remarks on NTR was a little harsh which really hurts. As per Subramnian Swamy NTR is the worst CM he has ever seen in politics. NTR failed in politics like no one as per MP which really surprised every Telugu person. NTR has the credit of implementing many schemes and he fought for the welfare of the people, but this dig at him really surprises political experts.

Swamy did not leave Chiranjeevi also, another actor/turned-politician. Swamy said Chiranjeevi failed as Union Minister and no one knows what he did as Minister for tourism.

He did not spare Rajinikanth either. He said Rajini is illiterate, unfit for CM’s post of Tamil Nadu. He once again repeated that Rajini is a kanndiga and is inconsistent on his decisions.

At the same time, NTR declares that Maheshbabu is the most handsome actor of the Telugu film industry and he further announced that he wants to share the Best Actor Award with all the nominees as all of them are best actors.

Will Rayalaseema Bless Pawan Kalyan Too?

ASWANI KUMAR ETURU

Anantapur: Will Rayalaseema bless political entry of Pawan?
Rayalaseema, became an ultimate destination for filmy stars to kick start their political careers for the past 33 years in Andhra Pradesh.

The drought-prone area, which is very backward, comprising only 4 districts, has been giving life to all film celebrities who make their political debut.

If we look at the past, late NTR made his entry from Hindupur in 1983, which became a political hub for TDP, which never lost the seat up to now. Balakrishna, son of NTR, contested from the same constituency in 2014 and won the seat. It was in Tirupati that NTR announced his decision to marry Lakshmi Parvati and make her his second wife, the decision that had spelled doom for his political career which ultimately resulted in the revolt staged by his younger son-in-law N Chandrababu Naidu. NTR was divested of the job of chief Minister. Chandrababu Naidu took over as CM in 1995.

Actor-turned-politician Chiranjeevi too sought the blessing of R’seema after he launched PRP in 2008. He contested for Assembly from Tirupathi along with Palakollu. Though Coastal Andhra people rejected him, Rayalaseema voters kept Chiranjeevi in their hearts by electing from Tirupathi.

His Brother, Pawan Kalyan, now joins the league. He recently announced his plans to fight in coming elections from Ananthpur district. Sources close to him say, Pawan will contest from Gunthakal constituency, which is a sentiment in two ways. One, its famous temple of Anjaneyaswamy, the deity whom Mega family strongly believes in. Second, the party that wins Gunthakal constituency will form the government in the State.

Important aspect in all these celebrities is that no one belongs to Rayalaseema but they thrived on the sentiment of voters , particularly by promising to solve the problems caused by the drought.

Rayalaseema, which consists of only 4 districts, Ananthpur, Chittor, Kadapa and Kurnool, witnessed leaders of State and national levels. When PV Narasimha Rao had to get elected to Lok Sabha after becoming prime minister without being a Member of Parliament, he chose Nandyala constituency to fight a by-Poll. The then Chief Minister Kotla Vijaya Bhaskara Reddy got the MP from Nandyala to resign for the sake of PV. The TDP supremo NTR did not put up a candidate against PV since a Telugu person became a PM. PV won with a record majority.

People of Rayalaseema are destined to decide the future of yet another celebrity politician. Already Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Nara Chandrababu Naidu and Opposition leader YS Jagan Mohan Reddy are representing Kuppam in Chittoor district and Pulivendula in Kadapa district respectively. Both the district are in Rayalaseema region. Rayalaseema calls all the shots in Andhra Pradesh politics. Will it also launch Power Star Pawan Kalyan?

NTR joins the shoot of Jai Lava Kusa

Hyderabad: Young Tiger NT Rama Rao joined the sets of his 27th film being directed by KS Ravindra @ Bobby and produced by Nandamuri Kalyanram on the banner of NTR Arts.  This is the first-ever film, tentatively titled ‘Jai Lava Kusa’ is being produced by Kalyanram with NTR as hero on their own banner NTR Arts. The shooting is in progress in Hyderabad. Though NTR planned to remain hefty in his movie, his fans had advised him to have a slim look through social media. Respecting their advice, NTR did rigorous workouts and shed around 12 kgs for the movie. For the first time, NTR is playing triple roles in the film and one of them is a negative role. Raasi Khanna is playing the female lead while search is on for the second heroine.

The third role may not have a heroine.  Devi Sri Prasad helms the responsibility of composing tune for the songs of the movie. According to the Film Nagar sources, a big producer cum distributor has come forward to secure theatrical rights of the film for Rs 85 crores. But nothing has been confirmed now and the discussions are still going on. It may be recalled here that Bobby had planned tight schedule fixture without any gap for non-stop shooting till its completion.

The director has locked August 11 as its release date as the day will do wonders. After August 11, there will be weekend 12 and 13. A day later, there will be another holiday on August 14. This would help in boosting the first week collections.

TN battle for Jaya’s legacy: Will Governor Vidyasagar be another Ramlal?

Hyderabad: Tamil Nadu is once again engulfed in a battle for political legacy after nearly three decades. While a similar political war raged after the death of then chief minister and founder president of AIADMK MG Ramachandran in 1988, similar drama is unfolding now in 2017 after the death of Chief Minister Jayalalithaa .

In 1988, it was a battle for political legacy of MGR after his death between his wife Janaki Ramachandran and his political protégé Jayalalithaa. Now, a war is raging for the political legacy of Amma (Jayalaithaa) between her close aide Sasikala Natarajan, known as Chinnamma, and Jaya’s unstinted loyalist O. Panneerselvam.

Incidentally, in this political drama that is being witnessed in Tamil Nadu, the role of acting Governor Ch. Vidyasagar Rao is going to seal the fate of either the present incumbent Chief Minister Panneerselvam or the CM aspirant Sasikala.

Thus Governor Vidyasagar Rao has a crucial role to play in resolving the political crisis that is brewing in the Tamil State. However, at the same time, the big question is whether Vidyasagar Rao too would play the role of the then Governor of united Andhra Pradesh Ramlal who earned the dubious distinction of “murdering democracy” by unseating TDP supremo NT Rama Rao and appointing Nadendla Bhaskar Rao as Chief Minister in 1984 though the former had the support of a majority of legislators.

As a matter of fact,  almost all the Opposition leaders of the time – AB Vajpayee,  HN Bahuguna, Farooq Abdullah, Sharad Pawar and  leaders of both the Left parties — had extended their full support to NTR and accused Governor Ramlal of “murdering democracy”.

 Not to be forgotten was the role Nara Chandrababu Naidu, son-in-law of NTR who was only holding the post of AP Karshak Parishat Chief, played. He kept the flock of TDP MLAs together by confining them to a hotel and later took them on a holiday to Nandagiri Hills in Karnataka State. Later, all the TDP MLAs were taken to New Delhi and paraded before the then President of India Giani Zail Singh to prove that NTR had sufficient majority of MLAs and still he was unseated by Governor Ramlal to facilitate Nadendla Bhaskar Rao to become Chief Minister.

Surprisingly,  then Union Home Minister P V Narasimha Rao endorsed the action of Governor Ramlal  by stating that under Article 164 (1) of the Constitution, “the ministers hold office during the pleasure of the Governor”. However, after a nationwide outcry about the role played by Goverrnor Ramlal, he was shunted out and NTR was reinstated as Chief Minister again.

After nearly three decades, a similar drama is unfolding in Tamil Nadu for political legacy and all eyes are now focused on the role to be played by Governor Vidyasagar Rao. Will the BJP leaders at the Centre, who are now being accused of orchestrating Panneerselvam’s revolt against Sasikala, distance themselves from influencing the Governor in the ongoing drama like Vajpayee who had condemned the then Governor Ramlal for ousting NTR?

Interestingly, when MGR passed away after a prolonged illness on December 24, 1987, war broke out between his wife Janaki and his protégé Jayalalithaa for taking over the political legacy of MGR.  Though Janaki won the battle initially and assumed office, her tenure as CM lasted only 24 days. Jayalalithaa who split the MGR’s party later merged it in AIADMK and became the Chief Minister to ultimately become the undisputed political queen of the Tamil State.

Now after her death, once again the battle for the Chief Minister’s post has  begun between Panneerselvam and Sasikala. What is intriguing is, while in 1988 Tamil Nadu witnessed a battle for MGR’s legacy, in 2017 the battle seems to be mainly for the CM’s post in the name of Amma’s legacy.

It is to be seen whether Panneerselvam parades his MLAs before President Pranab Mukherjee, as was done by NTR who paraded the MLAs before the then President Zail Singh. -NSS

PLAYING POLITICS

(M.Ramdas)

Hyderabad, November 28: It is a sorry state of affairs in this country, when practically everything is politicized. All leaders and legislators, who are supposed to govern and administer morally and efficiently, are busy scoring points against one another. A couple of prominent examples: the body of Prime Minister PV Narasimha Rao was not allowed to be cremated near Rajghat in New Delhi but despatched to Hyderabad ; and Narendra Modi is found fault with as he stands up to the Chinese and Pakistanis.

There- naming controversy over Hyderabad’s Rajiv Gandhi International Airport shows how self-cantered and parochial our law makers are. BJP at the Centre wants to retain NT Rama Rao as the Title for the domestic terminal, to demonstrate its support to the Telugu Desam party; actually, TDP would rather have the NTR name on the main international terminal building.

Amidst all this fracas, where does Telangana stand? Why were the people of this state not consulted?

Is not Hyderabad its principal city, to be completely declared in ten years’ time as its own capital? It is to the credit of a Telangana BJP leader that he has defied his party leaders by speaking up for the wishes of the people. From the beginning of the Airport controversy,

Kishan Reddy – president of the state BJP unit – has stood firm on the new state having a say in the renaming of RGIA.

Fair play and accommodation should dictate politics at all levels. If I am elected by the people’s votes, should not seek their assent when making important decisions? At least representatives of the people should be taken into confidence. All sections of this state have a popular hero – Komaram Bheem – a celebrated and revered freedom fighter and patriot, a legendary figure who sacrificed his life for the liberation of Hyderabad. Is there a valid reason for the ruling party at the Centre to bypass the citizens of Telangana when deciding on a question involving them?

But then, India’s morals have sunk very low. Rapists are condoned and supported, perpetrators of communal riots are felicitated, retrieval of black money is fought over and political extremists are ready to target the Taj Mahal. Given the quality of our revered politcians, is there any chance of justice for Telangana and its International airport?
