No Comments

Pawan Kalyan has disappeared from the limelight after his whirlwind tour of AP during general elections.

While other party leaders are busy assessing the outcome of the polls, Pawan in his usual style has gone into hibernation and is not to be seen anywhere.

The sudden disappearance of Pawan from the news has been raising doubts over his future plans.

A section of media already started speculating that Pawan Kalyan is planning to resume his career in films depending upon the outcome of the elections.

Few went ahead and reported that Pawan Kalyan has hit the gym to get fit for his next film.

Interestingly, a few leaders of Janasena are still connecting with people via various service activities.

JSP leaders like VV Lakshmi Narayana are receiving accolades for being responsible irrespective of the result. But the leader of JSP is not to be seen anywhere.

Pawan always gets disconnected with his movies after he is done with the dubbing. He doesn’t care about the result of his films. But is that a right strategy in the politics?

People and media might not consider him as a serious player unless he fights for the public without going off the radar for long intervals.

Nikhil gets slapped by police 36 times

No Comments

Young hero Nikhil got beaten up by a police so badly. But wait, when was this you might wonder?

This is all part of his upcoming movie ‘Arjun Suravaram’ and this is revealed by Nikhil himself while doing a special episode as part of promotions with the female lead Lavanya Tripathi.

Speaking about the movie, Nikhil said, “At the script stages, the film was very small but when we took it to the sets, the film became a large canvas. So we took our time in bringing the movie to the theatres.”

While discussing about the shooting, Nikhil shared that the director was supposed to shoot a close-up shot of him getting slapped.

“One shot of mine took 36 takes. A police officer was supposed to beat me, so that I should fall on the ground with that force. I was beaten up 36 times. I had to do it,” added Nikhil.

But Nikhil was lucky enough to get away with a single taken when it was the turn of Lavanya to slap him as she did it in just one go!

The shooting was one hell of a task both added.

“Every day we plan from 9 to 6 but it never ended at the exact time. The shooting would prolong to 10 PM and sometimes even 1 AM,” added Nikhil and Lavanya. In fact both did the action episodes without dope which was quite risky.

‘Arjun Suravaram’ is written and directed by TN Santosh and is releasing on May 1st.
