Rain god favours YSR family again

Andhra Pradesh, which used to witness continuous drought due to lack of adequate rains during the Chandrababu Naidu regime during his earlier stint between 1999 and 2004, started receiving good rains soon after late Y S Rajasekhara Reddy took over as the chief minister in May 2004.

YSR used to say then that “Varunudu Paa Vaipe Unnadu” (Rain god is on our side). Thanks to copious rains and flowing tanks, YSR could successfully implement the free-of-cost power supply to agriculture sector for seven hours.

Now, the history seems to have repeated in Andhra Pradesh.

The state which was reeling under severe heat wave conditions for the last few days received heavy rains accompanied by strong winds in several parts on Wednesday, a day before YSR’s son and YSR Congress president Y S Jaganmohan Reddy took over as the chief minister.

The heavy rains provided much-needed relief to the people of Vijayawada from sweltering heat and lowered temperatures considerably.

Though the rains badly hit the preparations at the Indira Gandhi Municipal Stadium, the venue of the swearing in, the officials quickly swung into action and got the stadium ready.

Now, it’s time for Jagan to repeat his father’s words: “Rain god is on our side” and blessed the people with Rajanna Rajyam in the coming days!

Dr. Rajasekhar has finally decoded the box office puzzle with Garuda Vega. He realized that his films need to be innovative and different from the rest to get noticed.

He patiently waited for another good script post Garuda Vega and has taken up Kalki with director Prashanth Varma who made an impressive debut with Awe.

Kalki has been attracting eyeballs right from its first poster and the recently released teaser has set high expectations on it.

The film looks to have the potential to be a box office winner which is why it is receiving multiple offers from various corners.

Tamil actor Dhanush has reportedly shown interest to get the all India theatrical rights of Kalki, but the makers have sold the theatrical rights to producer Radha Mohan.

He offered Rs. 12 crore for worldwide theatrical rights of Kalki, which is a huge amount considering Rajasekhar’s market.

Producers C. Kalyan and Rajasekhar are happy with the amount offered by Radha Mohan and sealed the deal.

Although the budget of Kalki is way more than Rs. 12 crore, the makers are sure to fetch handsome offers from non theatrical avenues.
