Sharwanand Gangster Drama on July 5

Sharwanand’s current film being directed by Sudheer Varma has finished its shoot except the patch work and a song.

The gangster drama has Sharwanand appearing in two different shades – of a middle-aged role and a youngster’s self.

The middle-aged person’s getup will be main highlight, say the team members.

It is said his look is similar to Vijay Sethupathi’s salt and pepper look in some of his recent Tamil movies. The first look of the movie had carried the same getup.

Although the makers have not yet finalized the title, Sharwanand said to have asked the producer and director to announce the title with a brand new poster.

Sharwanand has Kajal Aggarwal and Kalyani Priyadarshan as heroines and it is most likely to be released on July 5.

Sithara Entertainments that produced recent critically-acclaimed “Jersey” is producing it.

Encouraging Trends For ABCD

With chartbuster songs, fun packed trailers and good censor report, looks like this Allu Sirish starter ABCD is going to be a surprise winner at summer box office.

Having solo release date of 17th May and fun filled content in the trailer, ABCD movie has garnered good buzz among movie buffs.

Trade is surprised with the advance bookings opened for this movie at Hyderabad multiplexes today.

Filmnagar circles say that moviegoers are looking for comedy and entertaining movies in this summer season after watching serious and emotional movies like Majili, Jersey and Maharshi.

Another factor for this could be completion of IPL season and people are looking for movie entertainment.

All said and done, we have to wait and see how Allu Sirish is going to capture the audience attention from May 17th.

Boyapati Srinu Left Empty Handed

Boyapati Srinu took things for granted in Vinaya Vidheya Rama as he got over confident about his grip over so called commercial elements.

He went overboard with the mass masala stuff that has led to a dismal failure at box office.

VVR was a huge letdown that Ram Charan had to apologize to his fans for doing such a poor film.

However, Boyapati didn’t bothered much as he got a nod from Balakrishna. But he couldn’t come up with a story in time and Balakrishna moved on to some other film.

With Balayya getting busy, Boyapati has no one available at the moment. All the top stars are busy with their current assignments and mid-range stars also are not free as of now.

Boyapati is looking to rope in a fairly new actor for his next. But who will come forward to pool money bags for the director who cannot make movies on a low budget?

Firebrand Teja Mellows Down

Director Teja often branded as firebrand director has suddenly become diplomatic. Contrary to his nature, the director is not making wild comments on anyone.

In a recent TV interview, he said didn’t beat Kajal Aggarwal or Bellamkonda Sai Srinivas during the shoot of “Sita”.

In the past, several actors levelled allegations that he slapped on their faces when they didn’t give required expression during the filming process. Teja seems to have mellowed down in life.

The most surprising admission was that he walked out of NTR Biopic project because he felt he couldn’t do justice to the movie. The explanation he gave was lame excuse. He is clearly being diplomatic now.

Now that NTR Biopic movies bombed at the box-office, he doesn’t want to add salt to injury and irritate Balakrishna further.

People close to the developments say, Teja walked out from the project as he had huge creative differences with Nandamuri Balakrishna.

Balayya wanted to don various getups of the characters that his father NT Rama Rao portrayed in his long career to which Teja objected.

Teja wanted to explore more about NTR’s lesser-known off-screen life. This led to differences between them. But Teja is putting blame on himself for the walkout, obviously not to rub Balakrishna on the wrong side.

As they say, once you hit 50 (Teja is now in his early 50’s), you lose fire and gain more patience.

VV Vinayak Turns Hero For Dil Raju

Veteran director VV Vinayak has been going through lean phase with his films bombing big time at box office.

He was in race to direct Balakrishna’s next, but KS Ravikumar has been given the chance. Therefore, Vinayak is looking for other options and in the mean time he got an interesting offer from Dil Raju.

According to reports, Dil Raju has heard an interesting storyline that needs a middle aged man to play the lead. Dil Raju has Vinayak on his mind as his looks and body language suits the character.

Vinayak has done a few cameo appearances in the past. He got good applause for his performance in Tagore.

Raju shares a good bond with Vinayak, who launched his production house with the movie Dil. Now Raju is planning to launch Vinayak as the lead.

Dil Raju is in search of concept based stories besides doing big ticket movies and the regular commercial entertainers.

Anushka Paid a Bomb for Sye Raa

Megastar Chiranjeevi and the team of “Sye Raa” have approached ‘Deva Sena’ Anushka Shetty last year requesting her to play a very important role in the film.

Since it is a prestigious project for Megastar, the team wanted a big heroine to play the role of narrator.

Anushka Shetty took many months to give her consent. Latest reports suggest that Anushka has finally agreed to work in this film as the team has paid a huge remuneration for her cameo apperance.

After “Baahubali” movies both Prabhas and Anushka have become household names all over India. Her prescience in the film would definitely help for Hindi version. So, her high remuneration is justified, says a unit member.

She now has come to the movie’s sets that is currently progressing in Hyderabad. She will wrap up her brief schedule from tomorrow.

“Sye Raa” is produced by Ram Charan with the budget of Rs 200 Cr in Telugu, Tamil and Hindi languages. Amitabh Bachchan is playing the role of Guru to Chiranjeevi.

Nayanthara and Tamannah are the female lead. Anushka will appear in certain sequences only.

Balakrishna’s Romance With Young Sensation

Balakrishna will be essaying dual roles in his upcoming film with KS Ravi Kumar.

The film will start rolling soon and will be released for Sankranthi like many of recent Balakrishna’s movies. Meanwhile, the makers are busy in finalizing the cast and crew for the film tentatively titled Ruler.

Payal Rajput of RX 100 fame has been reportedly roped in as one of the female leads in it.

After making a stunning debut with an unconventional character in RX 100, Payal is slowly but surely getting busy in Telugu film industry.

She will be romancing Venkatesh in Venky Mama and Raviteja in Disco Raja. Now she has Balakrishna’s film in her kitty.

Rajput will appear in a steamy item song in the forthcoming release Sita starring Bellamkonda Srinivas and Kajal Agarwal.

 

Huge Relief for Ravi Teja, Puri and Charmee

12 Tollywood celebrities who were grilled in the drug case were let off. The Telangana excise department didn’t include a single film personality in the final charge sheets filed. They all have been given a clean chit.

With this news came out, the top celebrities like Ravi Teja, Puri Jagannadh and Charmee have heaved a sigh of relief.

In 2017, excise commissioner Akun Sabharwal interrogated several celebrities on the charges of involvement in drugs.

At that time, speculations were rife that the police would arrest some of the celebrities. But two years later, the police had filed cases on only four members and no Tollywood celebrity featured in the list.

Actors Ravi Teja, Tarun, Navadeep, Nandu and Taneesh were questioned. Charmme Kaur and Mumaith Khan also went to the police questioning.

Among other celebrities Puri Jagannnadh, Chinna and Shaam K Naidu also said they are innocent. All of them have got clean chit.

Ceded Shock for Mahesh Babu

Mahesh Babu’s “Maharshi” is drawing good collections all over with first week share is going to shatter NTR’s “Aravindha Sametha” record.

It is likely to cross Rs 20 Cr mark in Nizam by end of the first week. This is fantastic by any yardstick.

However, the run in ceded area is worrying the distributor.

The film was sold for Rs 12 Cr to ceded distributor and the movie has collect at least Rs 13 Cr share to see the profit on its investment. But it is struggling in Rayalaseema region as the film didn’t strike a chord with the audiences there.

The first week’s figure would be around Rs 5.80 Cr. It may add another two crores by end of its lifetime run.

Ceded region is the only area that is looking at huge losses for this film that has chances to become highest grosser in superstar Mahesh’s career.
