Presenter of the film N Venkateswara Rao says, 'The music scored by Subesh-Murali would remain a highlight. We have recently released the audio through Supreme Music and it is getting positive response. We are making efforts to release the film on October 13.' .
Bharat of 'Premiste'-fame played dual role in a successful Tamil film and it is being dubbed into Telugu as 'Muduru' by G Harikumar and K Lakshminarayana on the banner of Sri Lakshmi Srinivasa Pictures. The film has Sandhya of 'Premiste'-fame and Bhavana of 'Ontari'-fame in the female lead.
The story of the film is based on a real life incident that occurred on Andhra-Tamil Nadu border. Surprisingly, the film had 'Premiste' as tagline. Producers say, 'The film has action, comedy and love in its backdrop and at the same time it is a complete entertainer.' Dialogues and lyrics are by Vennelakanti, music is by Sabhesh and Murali, while action is by Kanal Kannan. Suresh is the executive producer while Srinu is the director.
Two actresses have started New Year with a scare. Those 2 are Sneha and Sandhya!
A New Year celebration was arranged by a television channel on East Coast Rd and the important guests were from the film field. This included Sneha and Sandhya. The opening was good, but the finishing was not! As they finished the celebrations and were getting set to go home, they were surrounded by fans who wanted to shake hands and wish them.
What would happen if one were to shake hands with hundreds of people?! The organizers formed a human chain around the petrified Sneha and Sandhya and managed to get them to their cars but the problem did not end there.
A little while later, Sandhya's car got stuck in a pothole in the middle of nowhere and it was the middle of night in the middle of the road. Help came in the form of the other heroine Sneha. Sneha had been traveling in front but as soon as she knew Sandhya's car was in trouble, she returned to help her.
With the help of the villagers, the car was pushed out of the slush and Sandhya returned home without further mishap!
Riding high on the good opening for Koodal Nagar is Sandhya.
Though Bharath acted in dual roles and Bhavana played the prominent heroine, it was Sandhya's cameo as a rural belle that caught the admiration of cine-buffs. Sandhya's expressions and body language won her rave reviews.
Currently shooting in Udhagamandalam, Sandhya expressed her gratitude to director Seenu Ramasamy for giving her a good role. “When the director narrated the story, I was impressed with the character. It was new experience for me to do such a role. But thanks to my co-stars and well-wishers, I managed to come out with a good show. I am thrilled when everyone appreciates me today”.
She is eagerly waiting to commence the shooting for Selvaraghavan's next film Idhu Malai Nerathu Mayakkam. She is confident that the movie would propel her career in Tamil filmdom.
The bubbly cute actress is all set to go for a negative role in her next film. Although it may seem somewhat of a mismatch, but it is believed that this is what enthused Sandhya to say yes to the offer.
Apparently Sandhya will be seen donning a baddie’s role for Malluwood venture titled ‘D-17’ to be made by visual communication students. Bollywood actor Atul Kulkarni plays the lead in the film that gyrates around the events that occur within the four walls of a single room.
Talking about her grey role, Sandhya says that it is much easier to fiddle with your image in Malayalam than Tamil films since you tend to get typecast in Kollywood after that. The actress also has no qualms about kissing onscreen since she had done it before in ‘Thoondil’ and is ready to do more if the script warrants.
2011/1/11 12:47:44 Kollywood actress Sandhya who appears now and then in Telugu films was injured in the shooting spot while acting in a Malayalam film ‘Three Kings,’ at Chalakudi in Kerala on Sunday.

Since, the soil is wet with occasional raining they were lucky to escape with minor injuries. While, Indrajith sustains minor injuries on his forearms, and hands, Sandhya got some serious ones on her both hands and legs. They were immediately rushed to near by hospital and given treatment. She said that once she feels comfortable, she will attend shooting within a couple of days.
Sandhya has been getting many offers in the industry after her appearance in the movie Vallavan with Simbu. She made her debut in the movie Kadhal with Bharath in the lead role. She was appreciated for her performance in the movie. She then starred with Jeeva in the movie Dishyum. She has also done movies for some South Indian languages.
She is now starring in about five languages in different languages and two of them for the Tamil industry.
One of the movies is under the direction of Selvaraghavan with Suriya, Karthi and movie is named Idhu Malai Nerathu Mayakkam. She will also be seen in the movie Koodal Nagar with Bharath and the movie also has Bhavana.

2008/5/5 10:50:51 Salman Khan helped Jackie Shroff by bailing him out of a financial problem and is also helping him resurrect his career
Salman Khan is at his charitable best. The latest on the generous superstar is that he is bailing out fellow actor Jackie Shroff, who is currently undergoing a financial crisis.
The story goes that Jaggu Dada who is facing a financial crunch had taken a loan of Rs 50 lakh from producer Sajid Nadiadwala. However, Jackie failed to pay back on time.
As a consequence, the loan multiplied to nearly Rs 1 crore on a given rate of interest. When Jackie tried to repay, his cheques bounced and Nadiadwala filed a case against Jackie.
Says a source, "Jackie then went to Salman (who is Nadiadwala's close friend) and explained his position to him. Salman immediately called up Nadiadwala and asked him to end the legal wrangle.
Nadiadwala withdrew the case on Salman's request. Moreoever, Jackie has also parted with most of his Sony shares. He is a darling and nobody wants to see him in trouble, not even Nadiadwala."
Salman has also taken up the task of resurrecting Jackie's career. Our source adds, "Salman has got Jackie a prominent role in his brother Sohail Khan's film, Kissan and also wants to cast him in Veer. Although Salman is keen that Jackie gets a role in that film, Anil Sharma (director of Veer) wants Mithun Chakraborty."
While Nadiadwala remained unavailable for comment, Jackie brushed off his financial crunch. He says, "Oh, there is no financial crunch. I still have the Sony shares with me. But yes, I had taken a loan from Sajid.
The loan was taken for my home-production Sandhya. Woh kuch distribution ka chakkar tha. Sajid will definitely get his money back when my film Sandhya releases. Meri woh picture (Sandhya) atak gayi hai."
Jackie adds, "I don't know if Salman is helping me with my career. But if that is the case, I think that I have a guardian angel around me. I would love to work a lot once again. Think of it, who wouldn't? Actually, there are quite a few guardian angels around me. I think my goodness is helping me out."
The fresh face in ‘Deshamuduru” Hansika Motwani is the new rage in Tollywood. The actor who is 16 years of age is no newcomer to films. The actor has starred in a couple of Hindi movies and has also acted as a child artist in some tele films from the Balaji group.
Hanshiksa says that she agreed to play the lead role in Desha Muduru as the role fitted her age and the story revolved around her. She has reportedly turned down an offer to star opposite Ravi Teja saying that the role demanded a lot of skin show.
She has also reportedly refused to star in role opposite Mahesh Babu and other senior actors in Tollywood. It can be understood if she is choosy about her roles but she needs to be careful not to antagonize the senior artists of Tollywood.
Gayathri of ‘Notebook’ fame is acting in a new film ‘Sandhya’ in which she plays a college student. While all her classmates and her seniors are busy romancing with their partners, she is all the time seen concentrating on her studies. Finally, she also falls in love, but with an auto driver. She hopes that the audience would like her role in the film.
The audio of 'Desamuduru' directed by versatile director Puri Jagannath and jointly produced by J Bhagawan and DVV Danaiah on the banner of Universal Media with Allu Arjun and Hansika Muthwal in the lead was released in Hyderabad recently. Chakri gave melodious tunes to five songs in the film. The film is most likely to be released on January 12 as Sankranti gift.
Nagarjuna, who attended the function as chief guest, launched the audio and handed over the first audiocassette to K Raghavendra Rao. Those who attended the programme explained which song had fascinated them and why. Later, a lucky dip was held and six of the winner had received audiocassettes and gifts from Allu Arjun.
Dr D Ramanaidu, Paruchuri Gopalakrishna, VV Vinayak, Rajamouli, B Gopal, Srinu Vytla, Surender Reddy, Vijayabhaskar, Ramesh Prasad, Dil Raju, KL Narayana, Allu Aravind, KC Sekharbabu, C Kalyan, KS Ramarao, Chalasani Ramesh, Umesh Gupta, Navadeep, and other unit members attended the programme.

2006/11/25 13:56:35 The shooting of 'Desamuduru' directed by Puri Jagannath, presented by J Bhagawan and produced by DVV Danaiah on the banner of Universal Media with Allu Arjun and Hansika Muthwal in the lead was almost complete but for the canning of two songs. The producer is planning to finish the shooting as well as the post-production formalities and release the film on January 12 as Sankranthi gift. Director Puri Jagannath says, 'Our film heroes act like experts in every field and the common people say it in Telugu as 'Veedu Bhale Mudurra'. We coined that word as the title for our film. Our hero also does everything which can't be done by someone else. When compared to the craze among the titles of my earlier films, this film had evoked very good response. It is a different film that runs with love as its backdrop. It is the story between a TV channel programme director and a lady sanyasin. The scenes that occur between them would be a visual treat to the audiences. Allu Arjun's characterization would be quite different. Ali's comedy track would be a highlight in this film. Music by Chakri would attract the youth. Action by Vijayan would be another highlight. Bhagawan and Danaiah did not compromise on production values. The film will have a novel backdrop, romantic and has many elements that could attract the mass.' Producer Danaiah says, 'After the tremendous success like 'Pokiri' Puri Jagannath had got several officers in various banners, but he chose us to do our film for which we are very thankful to him. In fact it is he who named our banner 'Universal Media'.
Remember Gayathri. Yes, we re talking about the same actor who made her debut with the film ‘Notebook’. Gayathri is now acting in the film ‘Sandhya’ opposite Baladithya. The film is presently under progress.
Baladithya plays the role of a auto driver in the film. Even though the role doesn’t demand it, Gayathri too has learnt to drive an auto. She says, who knows when it might come in handy? Well said Gayathri. And we compliment you on your foresight and practical approach
