Alia Bhatt Getting What She Demanded in RRR

No Comments

Alia Bhatt has signed on to play the female lead opposite Ram Charan in Rajamouli’s mega epic period drama which chronicles the early days of freedom fighters Alluri Seetharama Raju and Komaram Bheem.

She was Rajamouli’s first choice but she came on board only recently after producer Danayya and director Rajamouli have agreed to pay what she demanded.

Alia Bhatta reportedly demanded more remuneration than what she gets for a Bollywood movie.

Rajamouli and Danayya have agreed after considering the fact that her presence would help for the movie’s North India market.

“Today I feel truly truly grateful.. Cannot wait to begin this beautiful journey with this stellar cast and massive team.. thank you @ssrajamouli sir for giving me this opportunity to be directed by you,” she thanked Rajamouli on Twitter.

This is the first time in Tollywood that an actress is receiving such huge pay check.

Y S Vivekananda Reddy Is No More

No Comments

YSR Congress party leader and former Andhra Pradesh Minister Y.S. Vivekananda Reddy died of cardiac arrest on Friday, his family said. He was 68.

Vivekananda, also a former Lok Sabha member, suffered cardiac arrest at his residence in Pulivendula town of Kadapa district.

He was the younger brother of former Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy and uncle of YSR Congress party president Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy.

He is survived by wife and a daughter.

He was elected from Kadapa Lok Sabha constituency on Congress party ticket in 1999 and 2004. He was twice elected to Andhra Pradesh Assembly (1989, 1994) from Pulivendula, a family stronghold.

Vivekananda was also elected to Andhra Pradesh Legislative Council in 2009 and served as Agriculture Minister in Kiran Kumar Reddy cabinet.

He remained loyal to Congress when Jaganmohan Reddy raised a banner of revolt against the party for not picking him as the successor of his father and Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy following his death in a helicopter crash in 2009.

Jagan Reddy had alleged that Congress tried to engineer split in the family by making Vivekananda a Minister. The young leader subsequently floated YSR Congress party.

Vivekananda contested 2011 bye-election to Pulivendula constituency against his sister-in-law and Jagan’s mother Y.S. Vijayamma, who contested as YSR Congress candidate and won the seat with a huge majority.

Vivekananda later quit Congress party and joined YSR Congress. He lost elections to the Legislative Council in 2017.

KCR to appeal AP voter to defeat TDP

No Comments

It’s official now. TRS president and Telangana CM K Chandrasekhar Rao will not tour AP to campaign against TDP in upcoming AP Assembly polls.

KCR will only make an ‘appeal’ to AP voters before the crucial polling to defeat TDP and give ‘long leave’ to Chandrababu Naidu in the ‘interests of AP’.

KCR will address AP voters through electronic and print media before polling explaining the need why Naidu should be thrown out of power for the speedy development of Andhra Pradesh and for the speedy construction of new capital city.

KCR will urge AP voters to take a ‘wise decision’ before casting their vote and that ‘wise decision’ will be defeating TDP.

KCR will not appeal voters to vote for any particular party but will only request them to defeat TDP and teach a fitting lesson to AP CM Chandrababu Naidu, who failed on all fronts in his five-year rule.

Though Naidu and other TDP leaders have intensified attack on KCR as elections near accusing nexus between “KCR-Jagan” and “TRS-YSRCP” to defeat TDP, KCR has been maintaining complete silence.

KCR chose not to respond on Naidu’s criticism saying that AP people have lost faith on Naidu and already took a firm decision to throw him out of AP and there was no need for him to react on Naidu’s charges against him at this stage.

Kodandaram to take on Kavitha with Congress support

No Comments

Telangana Jana Samithi president Prof Kodandaram, who played a ‘key role’ in Telangana statehood agitation by setting up TJAC, seems to be gearing up for the ‘final battle’ of his political life.

He is all set to contest from Nizamabad Lok Sabha seat against TRS sitting MP and KCR’s daughter Kalvakuntla Kavitha.

Prof Kodandaram did not contest recent Telangana Assembly polls in December, though TJS was part of Congress-led Mahakutami comprising of TDP and CPI due to ‘differences’ over seat-sharing and lack of time to plan campaigning with the delay in finalising Mahakutami candidates.

TJS faced humiliating defeat at the hands of TRS as it drew blank though it contested in 8 seats in TS Assembly polls.

But Kodandaram has decided not to give up and continue his fight against ‘family and dictatorial rule’ of KCR.

Kodandaram wants to teach a fitting lesson to KCR by defeating his daughter Kavitha.

Kodandaram feels that even if TRS wins all the seats in Telangana and loses Nizamabad, this will be a big blow to KCR and TRS, which will go a long way in strengthening Opposition parties in Telangana in the coming days, which are now pushed to a corner due to successive defeats at the hands of TRS in all the elections.

Congress is keen to support Kodandaram in Nizamabad and will not field its candidate.

Congress feels that there is severe anti-incumbency against Kavitha in Nizamabad but due to lack of a ‘strong leader’ from Opposition there, they could not capitalise it.

But this time, all parties including Congress, TDP, Left Parties, TJAC and other civil organisations are coming together to jointly field a ‘strong candidate’ in the form of Prof Kodandaram to defeat Kavitha and to give a ‘befitting reply’ to KCR.

became a national crush instantly the moment her wink video got viral. The video that took the internet by storm and left fans go weak in the knees.

The gorgeous lady has never failed to leave us spellbound every time she dresses up and show up ever since.

But this time, her beauty, sass and style all are making us go weak in the knees and we certainly aren’t complaining. So, the diva took to Instagram to share a pic of hers that oozed style and sass.

The photo in question saw her wearing a yellow baggy crop top with striped pants. Priya had tied her in a bun and her envious jawline was giving us many goals.

While in the name of accessories she was wearing sunglasses, she rounded up her look with a nude lipstick.

Apart from her style, what impressed us, even more, was her moon tattoo which was on her back, right below her nape and was looking quite stunning.
