R.Parthiban is back!
Actor-turned-director Parthiban has been keeping himself very low-key these days. The last time the actor was seen on the screens was in “Aayirathil Oruvan” opposite Karthi. So what has the actor been up to these days?
Well it is heard that he will be releasing his upcoming film “Vithagan” which he has directed and acted in himself. He plays the role of a police officer who uses his brain more than his gun in various situations. Poorna is acting opposite him whilst music has been scored by Joshua Sridhar.
As well as this, rumour has it that Gautham Vasudev Menon has plans to start his own tele-serial along the lines of American hit series CSI, where Parthiban will play the lead role and music will be done by the one and only A.R.Rahman.
Another actor weds
Just when the girls were getting over the sadness of actor Karthi getting married, another actor is now to tie the knot very soon. It is director P.Vasu’s son Shakthi who will be getting married in a couple of months. The actor made his debut under his father’s direction as a child actor in “Chinna Thambi” which starred Prabhu.
His next film as a lead hero was in “Thottal Poo Malarum”, also under his father’s direction, which was an average hit thanks to Yuvan Shankar Raja’s music. He did a couple of films which failed to make a mark at the box office until he played a supporting role with Prithviraj in “Ninnaithale Innikum which was a hit.
The young actor will be getting married to Smriti, daughter of a Chennai-based industrialist. The actor has three films coming up titled “Aedho Seidhai Ennai,” “Kalla Sirippazhaga,” and “Vanjikottai Vaaliban”.
STR’s Six Pack
Simbu’s upcoming film “Osthi,” which is a remake of Hindi flick “Dabanng” will not be seeing a Diwali release due to one reason! Now what may that reason be, you ask?
Well it seems that the Young Super Star is working on his six-pack, as he plans to go shirtless for the climax scene. The actor has been on a strict diet right from the start of the shooting and has been getting tips from the villain himself, Sona Sood.
The soundtrack for the film, composed by Thaman, will be out next month. Let’s hope the STR-Thaman magic is as successful as STR-Yuvan combo.
Vijay and Vijay
Director Vijay is making big news since his last release “Deiva Thirumagal.” Sources have it that the director is keen on casting Ilayathalapathy Vijay for his next film, although no official announcement has been made.
But if this were to happen, it would only be once actor Vijay wraps up filming for Gautham Vasudev Menon’s “Yohan Adhiyayam Ondru”, and director Vijay has finished his upcoming film, which stars Vikram again.
Let’s wait and see!
