Balakrishna’s next with his favourite director put on hold?

Hero Balakrishna is currently working on his hat-trick film with Boyapati Srinu. After wrapping up this film, Balayya was supposed to join forces with his favourite director B Gopal, who had given some of the iconic blockbusters in Balayya’s career such as Lorry Driver, Samarasimha Reddy and Narasimha Naidu.

However, if the latest buzz is anything to go by, the Balayya-B Gopal film has been put on hold temporarily as Balayya has decided to reunite with his Paisa Vasool director Puri Jagannadh for his next project. Puri has already completed the script work for this crazy project. An official announcement regarding this exciting film could be out soon after the lockdown ends.

Acharya in Sankranthi race, 2021?

If the ongoing buzz is anything to go by, Megastar Chiranjeevi’s highly -anticipated 152nd film, Acharya, has been postponed to Sankranthi, 2021. Needless to say, the reason behind this postponement is the 2 month long shutdown of shootings due to the lockdown.

Apparently, Team Acharya will be resuming the shooting formalities from June 15th, after the Telangana government issues permission for the shootings. A couple of songs and a massive action episode will be canned in the upcoming schedule.

So far, director Koratala Siva has completed nearly 40 percent of the production formalities. Clarity on Ram Charan’s special cameo movie is yet to be made by the makers. Ram Charan and Niranjan Reddy are jointly producing this high budget social drama. Kajal Aggarwal is the film’s leading lady.

The film, which was aired on a popular general entertainment channel recently, has clocked 9.10 TRPs, which is highest among all other movies of the young actor.

NTR’s birthday, a record-breaking feast for fans

NTR is a superstar and has been in the best of his form from the last few years. He celebrated his birthday yesterday and social media went into a tizzy across the country.

This clearly shows how big a star NTR has become in the days to come. He will next be seen in RRR and also in a film with Trivikram and Prashanth Neel in the days to come.

NTR's Three Films to Release in Three Consecutive Years?

Given the previous reports, Young Tiger NTR's RRR had to hit screens on January 8, 2021. On the other hand, NTR and Trivikram's combo film's producer Haarika and Haassine Creations announced their film's release for summer, 2021. 

However, ongoing lockdown being imposed by the union government turned a stumbled block for all film shoots and upset the release planning of almost all films. As such, RRR's release is pushed to summer, 2021.

Now that NTR is to complete his balance part of RRR, he can't team up Trivikram until this year end. As a result, the combo's 'Ayinanu Poyi Raavale Hasthinaku' might release on in 2022. 

Obviously, NTR and Prashant Neel's film maybe delayed and will release in 2023. All in all, three films of NTR will hit screens in three consecutive years such as 2021, 2022 and 2023.

Sukumar And Mythri Say No To OTT!

Director Sukumar has ventured into production sometime back and his debut film “Kumari 21F” is a super hit. With support from Mythri Movie Makers, he’s now coming up with the movie “Uppena” which has his associate Buchi Babu Sana directing it. Recently this film got a huge offer from an OTT platform we hear.

With many small budgeted films and films that have comparatively new faces and struggling heroes going to OTT in Bollywood and Tamil arena, even Uppena is said to have got a similar offer. The film has newcomer Vaishnav Tej, brother of Sai Dharam Tej and new girl Kriti Shetty as the leading pair. But then, Sukumar and Mythri are said to have shown no interest in the offer due to budget issues.

Apparently they are said to have spent nearly 18 crores for the movie and that is a huge bet considering the fresh faces. But then the budget is not impossible to recover, as the newly introducing mega hero and the brand of Sukumar might have pulled heavy crowds to theatres. With OTT platforms giving an offer like how they give for any other small movie, Uppena creators have decided to not sell the film, they say.

Uppena will be one of those first films that is ready to hit theatres once the lockdown gets lifted and theatres re-opened.

In a welcome move, the Andhra Pradesh government announced a list of freebies in terms of location expenses which will be a huge relief to all the filmmakers who are already reeling under the after effects of the 2 month long lockdown. The government followed the list of directives proposed by the Andhra Pradesh State Film, TV and Theatre Development Corporation (APSFTVTDC) and amended the 2006 G.O.

Makers of NTR30 to reveal the official poster soon?

Young Tiger NTR’s new project after the prestigious, RRR was announced a few months ago. Ace director Trivikram will be directing the film and also marks the 30th project of NTR.

Meanwhile, ever since the project is announced, news has been in circulation that the makers are going to name the film as Ayinanu Poyi Ravale Hastinaku but till now nothing was confirmed by the makers.

Now, the latest buzz is that Trivikram and his team are planning to release the official poster of the project with the title logo on May 20th as Tarak’s birthday special.

Kalyan Ram and Chinna Babu will be bankrolling the project, jointly.

NTR fans expecting this from Rajamouli

As May 20th is coming near, the wait for the special birthday teaser of NTR from RRR is getting even crazier. Fans are waiting to see what Rajamouli has in store for them through NTR.

NTR is playing Komaram Bheem in the film and all the fans want is for the teaser to be on par with that of Ram Charan’s which was released a few weeks back.

So, they would love Rajamouli if he makes the teaser better than Ram Charan’s one but they would not tolerate if the teaser disappoints them.

But knowing Rajamouli, he will do a superb job and keep NTR fans super happy.

Hebah Patel Fails To Mesmerise in RED

Restarting the promotions of his upcoming film “Red”, hero Ram Pothineni is making sure that a new video will be released about the film each week. Last time they have come up with the ‘behind the scenes’ video of a song shot in Italy, and now they have come up with this item number teaser.

Featuring ‘Kumari 21 F’ fame hottie Hebah Patel in her first ever item song, the song “Dhinchak” is out today with the video hitting YouTube on the eve of Ram’s birthday. While the song is another mass treat from Manisharma, one has to look at two aspects of it, Hebah Patel and choreography.

It looks like Hebah Patel is yet to get her old curvaceous looks back, while her dance steps are also not so catchy. Many expect this song to be like Dhimaak Karaab from Ismart Shankar, but Hebah’s dances are not as energetic and glamorous as Nidhi Agerwal and Nabha Natesh. In the first look, she has failed to mesmerise while we have to see if the full song video might work in her favour.

Jani master has composed some routine steps for Ram. However, Ram makes those steps look interest as he infused energy into the dance movements.

Red is a remake of Tamil hit film Thadam and directed by Kishore Tirumala of Nenu Sailaja fame.

Nithiin’s Marriage Postponed To Dec!

Buzz is that the couple have decided to have a grand wedding bash and such large gatherings could only be possible by December 2020. However, the plan is in nascent phase. An official announcement would be made by families later.

Meanwhile, it’s also buzzed that Rana Daggubati and Miheeka Bajaj’s wedding would also take place in December this year.

Deepika & Aamir Khan On January 1st, 2000

The throwbacks are always interesting and if they are to decades back, they are not to be missed. Superstar actress Deepika Padukone brings back a picture from her memory lane, that has Aamir Khan with Padukone family on January 1st, 2000.

Deepika Padukone shared a picture of her when she was 13 years old in 2000 at Bollywood’s biggest star Aamir Khan’s house then. Deepika funnily admits she looked awkward and also revealed that Aamir Khan was having lunch, precisely curd rice which he did not offer and always hungry Deepika did not ask for.

That’s an interesting throwback of Deepika Padukone with family. Aamir Khan too looked as smart as ever, probably between Mann, Mela, Lagaan and Dil Chahta Hai times. Wait, What? Curd rice for lunch on the first day of a new year? Well, that’s Aamir Khan.
