Santhanu is a gangster
Actor-turned-director K.Bhagyaraj’s son Santhanu (Sakkarakatti and Siddu Plus Two) has had a few releases being it in Tamil, Telugu or Malayalam. But the young champ is hoping that his next film will really bring out the actor in him in “Aayiram Vilakku”, which according to the actor is a “totally different film.”
The film is directed by Hosimin (February 14th) and is based along the theme of a “Madurai” gangster tale. Veteran actor Sathyaraj and the sexy Sana Khan (Silambaatam) play pivotal roles in the film.
Prabhu’s son is an actor!
Many veteran actors have brought their children to Kollywood tinseltown such as Kamal Haasan (Shruti Haasan), Sathyaraj (Sibiraj) , Sarath Kumar (Varalaxmi) , the late Murali (Adharva) , P.Vasu (Shakthi) and Sivakumar (Surya and Karthi).
Well next in line is Actor Prabhu’s son Vikram, and it seems that Prabhu would like Director Ameer to launch his son. You may remember it was Ameer who launched Karthi with Paruthiveeran which made him a successful actor.
The director wanted to spend time with Vikram by getting to know him and his movements – they even played tennis together! It has now been concluded that Ameer will direct Vikram once he has finished his “Adhi Bhagavan” with Jayam Ravi.
Shaam back on track
Remember Shaam? The chocolate boy who had a wide fan base of girls after starring in 12B, Hey Nee Rhomba Alagha Irrukirai and Ullam Ketkume? Yeah, him! There was a time when the actor was doing quite well and getting offers from all sides until he took on action films that did not give the actor the success he required such as Bala, Inba and others.
The actor went quiet for a while until he came back with a new look (a moustache) and a better build in the Telugu hit “Kick.” The film was such a hit he reprised the role in the Tamil remake “Thillalangadi.”
The actor who produced and acted in Agam Puram recently will be doing the same again in a film titled “Thoosi.” It is based on a true life police story in Trichy. Just like in Thillalangadi, Shaam will play the police officer.
As well as this, Shaam’s Tollywood career is also on a high!
Vishal on a roll!
Actor Vishal is currently acting in Bala’s Avan Ivan but the tall dark handsome actor is already on a signing spree with his next films.
He will commence Prabhu Deva’s next flick in March. As well as that, Vishal will be working with Boopathy Pandian again since Malaikottai in “Pattathu Yaanai.” The film will have Vishal as a police officer.
Let’s hope this film will be better than the last time we saw Vishal as a police officer in “Satyam.”
Final 3 Idiots!
OK, so we have been going back and forth with the Tamil remake of 3 Idiots and now I can fully assure you that the final cast of the film are Vijay, Jiiva and Srikanth.
Yes that is right, Vijay is back on the sets after going through a few hurdles. Surya was offered the role when we were told Vijay pulled out last year, but it seems the actor has had other commitments. However Surya is yet to clarify on his reasons.
So as well as our 3 heroes, Tollywood’s finest Ileana will be playing the female lead with pivotal roles by Sathyaraj and Sathyan. Director S.J.Suryah, actress Anuya and Ajay Rathinam will be making special appearances too.
Jiiva, Srikanth, Sathyaraj, Sathyan and S.J.Suryah are being shot in Ooty till next week whilst Ilayathalapahty Vijay will join the sets from February 25th. As for the title of the film……(drum roll)…..
The film has been titled “Nanban”.
