While Unnaipol Oruvan is geared up for September release, debutant director Chakri spoke to the media recently about working with two biggest legends of South Indian cinema quite early in his career. Having studied Film technology from the United States, Chakri’s brush with luck came when he met Kamal during the shoots of Dasavatharam. He played Kamal’s friend in the movie as well and subsequently invited by him to direct Unnaipol Oruvan.

“One question I face often is about the star value of actors who are part of the remake,” he said. While ‘A Wednesday’ starred actors with no image quotient, the Tamil version has two biggest names in the industry. “But Kamal and Mohanlal have already cut loose from the image circle and done unconventional roles. So it really doesn’t matter here,” he added.


Director Jagannathan married his long time girlfriend Dhatchayini yesterday in a simple ceremony at the Registrar’s Office in Chennai. The couple was in love for the past couple of years and only close friends were invited for the wedding.

Jagannathan’s credits include the Vijay starrer Pudhiya Geethai, Kodambakkam and Raman Thediya Seethai. That apart, he was also cast in the latest release Mayandi Kudumbathar.


Kamal Haasan, in a recent interview to a private television channel, has said that he would never contemplate entering politics. The Ulaganayagan said that though he is actively into politics, he would never turn into a politician. He added that turning out to be politician would pave way for him to wield the gun.

Kamal has raked up a controversy of sorts by disclosing that he was never interested in the institution called marriage. The actor said that it was out of social compulsion that he had to tie the nuptial knot twice – Vani and Sarika.

The actor disclosed that both his daughters Shruthi and Akshara do not maintain any connection with their biological mother Sarika.


The makers of Kanthaswamy have come out with gross collection status for the first week. In Tamil Nadu alone the collection is estimated to have reached Rs. 16 crores during the first week, while in Andhra Pradesh it was Rs. 8 crores. Kerala and Karnataka recorded Rs. 1 crore each. In the overseas market, Malaysia recorded Rs. 3 crores. The total worldwide collection stood at Rs. 37 crores.

According to the press release, Abirami Complex , Sathyam Complex , Albert Complex, Inox Complex, recorded Rs. 27,18,184.00, Rs. 43,17,072.00, Rs. 12,77,317.00, and Rs. 14,58,045.00, respectively.

Kanthaswamy is a mega budget film produced by Kalaipuli S Dhanu and directed by Susi Ganesan. The film stars Vikram, Shriya, Prabhu and Vadivelu among others.


With the trend of directors and assistant directors turning to acting professional, Vikram, known to be a director’s actor, has come down heavily on directors donning the greasepaint. Speaking to the media about this, the actor said that with directors turning out to be actors there would be a dearth in good directors that an actor can rely on.

Vikram added that he had a fight with his director Susi Ganesan over this issue and insisted that he would never tread the actor’s path and forsake his career as a director.


Kaana Kanmani once again brings the winning combination of Veruthe Oru Bariya back to the silver screen. The film’s audio was launched recently by Mammootty, Jayaram and Resul Pookutty in Ernakulam on Sunday, August 30th, 2009.

Kaana Kanmani stars Jayaram, Padmapriya, Biju Menon, Nedumudi Venu, Raghavan, and Sukumari among others. The film is directed by Akku Akbar and produced by Mammootty’s Play House and Moser Baer Entertainment.
