We had reported recently that the audio launch of Vasathabalan’s period film ‘Kaaviya Thalaivan’ will happen in June. The interesting news about the album is that ace music director AR Rahman took three months for a particular song and it has come out exceptionally well. The buzz is that the movie will have 20 songs, as it is a musical drama.

Director Chimbu Devan had Tweeted that he would soon be revealing details about the Vijay starrer. His Tweet read: “Ungaludaiya aatharavukku migavum nandri. Details about my film with Vijay would be revealed soon :-)”
After wrapping up AR Murugadoss’ Kaththi, Vijay will move ahead to this project and there have been various rumours about the star cast in it. In an effort to put an end to it all, the director has stated that he would soon be coming out with authentic information about this project. Well, fans are certainly eager to know about the female lead in this film particularly as rumour mills state that Deepika Padukone and Shruti Haasan are in talks.
Gautham Karthik has signed the deal to star in a movie to be produced by the popular production house Sathyajyothi Films. Incidentally, this production house had produced a number of hits with Gautham’s dad Karthik in the lead.
The film with Gautham Karthik will be directed by debut director Raj Kumar who is from the AR Murugadoss’s camp. Raj Kumar had assisted ARM in a few films and has adequate experience in film direction. The search for a heroine to pair up with Gautham is currently on and will be announced shortly.
Nayanthara has refuted reports that she has increased her pay packet drastically after the release of her latest flick Nee Enge En Anbe and that she is agreeing to sign the dotted lines only if the movie has a leading hero to pair up with her.
When asked about this in a recent interview, Nayan laughed it off as rumours. Stating that she accepts all offers that has ample scope to showcase her performance, the actress pointed out that all she needs is challenging roles right now and other issues such as pay and stars doesn’t matter.
Sonakshi Sinha, who is playing Rajinikanth’s lead pair in Lingaa, has said that she initially found it difficult to enact scenes on the sets of the film as she did not know the language at all. However, the actress is now set on learning Tamil to get into the skin of her character.
Sources in the Lingaa team say that Sonakshi is getting to learn Tamil from the assistant directors on the sets and not stopping at that she is also trying to converse in the language as far as possible. This effort from the pretty Bollywood actress has won her praises from everyone in the team as it shows her dedication.
Director Gautham Menon has reportedly called off the shooting of the Ajith starrer that he has been directing. When enquired, sources said that the director is planning to erect a grand set to film the portions involving the lead pair Ajith and Anushka as it is impossible for him to can scenes with them in outdoor locations.
As soon as the sets are erected, the shooting will go on full swing. In the mean time, Gautham and music director are working on the tunes for the film and the director has announced that he would be having six songs in the film.
Rumours are rife in Kollywood that the Rajinikanth starrer Lingaa is based on the Mullai Periyar Dam issue. Unofficial sources say that the Superstar plays in a role for which director KS Ravi Kumar has drawn inspiration from the British engineer John Pennycuick, who was instrumental in building the Dam.
While this rumour is making rounds in the tinsel town, film analysts wonder if Rajini would be touching upon such a sensitive issue at this stage of his career. Well, only an official announcement from the team will ward off all the rumours about Lingaa which is progressing amidst a lot of protests in Karnataka.
Ace comedian Vadivelu is planning on his next after his last outing Jagajala Pujabala Thenaliraman failed to get positive results at the box office. The film released amidst a lot of expectations but failed to cash in on it at the box office.
Not deterred by that, Vadivelu has decided on his next film. This yet-to-be-titled film will be directed by Yuvaraj Dayalan, who had directed Thenaliraman, say sources. However, it is not clear if the actor will be taking up a historical subject this time too. Meanwhile, there is a buzz that Vadivelu might be a part of Rajinikanth’s ‘Lingaa’.
