Industry grapevine is that director Siva is trying hard to convince Anirudh to come on board.
On November 23, it was officially announced that Ajith will once again team up with director Siva for his upcoming project, titled Viswasam. After Vivegam, this film would mark the fourth collaboration of the duo. In December, the team had a formal pooja along with the technicians and members of the production house, Sathyajyothi Films.
A few weeks back, it was confirmed that Yuvan Shankar Raja has been roped in as the music director for Viswasam, touted to be a rural-based entertainer. However, Yuvan has now backed out of the project, due to unknown reasons. A source close to the composer reveals that he was in talks with director Siva and Sathyajyothi Films.
Another source tells that director Siva is considering Anirudh Ravichander and other music directors to compose for Viswasam. The team is also on the lookout for a suitable heroine for this village-based flick. Earlier, the team was in talks with Anushka Shetty for the same, but it looks like she hasn't signed the project.
The shooting of Viswasam is slated to commence sometime in January 2018 and is scheduled to release for Diwali 2018. Ajith has ditched his salt-and-pepper look and has had his hair coloured black for his role in the movie.
The technical team of Viswasam includes cinematographer Vetri and editor Antony Ruben.
The film will release on January 10, during Sankranti.
The much-awaited teaser of Power star Pawan Kalyan’s Agnyaathavaasi was released on Saturday. The action-packed trailer reminds us of the previous outing of Pawan-Trivikram combination Attarintiki Daredi in which Pawan was a wealthy businessman, on a mission to reunite his family.
Meanwhile, Gaali Veluga, the second song from the Pawan Kalyan film was released earlier this week. A music video of the song was released by Anirudh, who dubbed the song as a tribute to Pawan Kalyan.
Agnyaathavaasi is Pawan Kalyan’s 25th film, and this is his third combination with Trivikram, who earlier directed Jalsa and Attarintiki Daredi, both blockbusters.
Music for the film is by Anirudh Ravichander, who is making his debut in Tollywood. The first single Bayatiki Vachi Chuste has already become a huge hit.
The film is being produced by S Radha Krishna under the banner Haarika & Haasine Creations. For the first time, Keerthy Suresh has been paired with Pawan Kalyan. Anu Emmanuel is also playing an important role in the film.
The cast also includes Khushboo, Boman Irani, Rao Ramesh and others.
According to reports, the theatrical rights of the film have been sold out for a record price.
The makers announced that the film will have a massive release across the USA. Agnyaathavaasi will have the biggest ever release in USA in 209 Cinemark locations which is the highest for an Indian film.
Recently the title of the film was announced and the first look poster was launched, which fans dubbed a perfect blend of class and mass, calling it a unique trait of both Pawan Kalyan and director Trivikram Srinivas.
The film is stated to release on Sankranti.
Every week there has been one announcement from Balaji Mohan about the cast and crew of his next project, Maari 2 with Dhanush in the lead. This sequel already has Malayalam sensation, Sai Pallavi playing the female lead, while Tovino Thomas will be the antagonist. Yesterday, the team announced that actor Krishna would be playing the second male lead and it just raised up the expectations set on this project.
One of the factors which the team has been holding in is the name of the music director of the movie. A large section of the audience is expecting Anirudh to return and collaborate with Dhanush due to the massive success they had tasted with the music of Maari. Our sources tell us that after a long gap of 9 years, Dhanush is expected to collaborate with Yuvan Shankar Raja to score the music for his film. Yaaradi Nee Mohini was the last time the two worked together on a movie, though Dhanush did sing a couple of songs for Yuvan in the meantime.
Though there has been no official confirmation on the same, we know very well that if this combination comes together, it is a sure shot success!
