Vijay’s diet is like him – simple and nice

April 28, 2006

Vijay’s diet is much like the person that he is – simple and nice. His lunch – frugal by any standards – is actually a simple affair: just a cup of rice, `drumstick’ sambhar, and vegetable `avial’, with a lone concession to oil by way of a solitary `appalam’. Not quite the food meant for a top ranking star who can easily afford five-star meals every day.

Of late, Vijay has also been avoiding non-vegetarian food, and, many weeks, if not months, might have gone without him even touching a piece of mutton. He also does exercises regularly as he is finicky about keeping his weight under check.

If Vijay sports a slim `n’ trim look in the coming days, then you know what’s the secret behind it!


Asin – In a fix!

By Moviebuzz Thursday, 27 April , 2006, 10:36

After six months, Asin the number one heroine of 2005 faced the camera for Annavaram, a Telugu film last week in Hyderabad. It is not much of a role as it is the remake of Vijay’s Tirupachi and she is doing the role that Trisha had done in the original. Sandhya plays the pivotal role of hero’s sister in the film.

Asin’s heart definitely beats for Tamil cinema where she shined the most. But unfortunately, she just does not have any `live’ project other than Godfather opposite Ajit that is still lying in the cans. Her much awaited Gautham Menon film with Suriya for Ajay of `Lakshmi Productions’ is still hanging on fire.

More bad news is that another film for which she was the front runner-Vijay’s `Swargachitra’ Appachan produced film is also slipping out of her hands! Remember that she was supposed to do Vijay’s Puli and later Murasu. But now Vijay has decided to do Thangam, the Bangaram remake from Telugu, which has Nila and Reema Sen as heroines with Trisha in a guest role in the climax.

Now the latest we hear is that Bhavana and Mallika Kapoor are being approached to do the female leads in Thangam.


Want to meet Vijay? Call Auto!

April 26, 2006

Whatever the superstar does, it gets copied some time or the other. The superstar played an auto driver (Auto is a motorized three wheeler in India used as a cab) in Baasha and now, Arya is playing one in Auto. Sibiraj is playing a similar role in Pattasu.

Not to be left behind, Vijay is playing an auto driver in a yet-to-be named film to be produced by Kavithaalaaya after Bharadhan’s Thangam.


Heroine for Vijay’s Thangam : Asin leads the list

April 26, 2006

Vijay’s Thangam is all set to spin soon. The question is who will be the heroine? Initially, they preferred Nila herself who did the heroine role in Telugu version. But that idea would give a feeling of a remake movie.

Sivaji’s heroine Shreya is in the scene. But she is not able to give the dates immediately as she has already given dates to Shankar and Dhanush’s Thiruvilayadal had also booked her. Next is Trisha? No chance at all. After Aadhi’s failure Vijay feels that he will not turn to Trisha at least for few years.

So chances are very bright for Asin. Since Asin-Vijay pair worked well in Sivakasi all the sides of Thangam unit voted unanimously for Asin So it may be Asin for Vijay again!! Let us wait and see who will pair Vijay in Thangam. All the best for Vijay…

A successful century for Aathi…


After Sivakasi, Vijay has acted in Aathi. This is a home production for Vijay. Trisha has paired up with Vijay in this film. They have paired up in this film again after Ghilli and Tirupachi. This film has a strong story, action, sentiments and fire flying dialogues. Saikumar a hero in the Kannada and Telugu film world has acted as the villain here. Vidhyasagar is the music director for this film. This film has been a real success on the screens. This film is celebrating a successful hundred days run today (24/04/06). Waiting for Aathi to celebrate its Silver Jubilee soon.

In an industry where crores are dumped to make a film, it is the hero that takes away a lion’s share. Almost 40% of the production cost goes towards paying the hero. In this article we analyze how much our Kodambakkam heroes are paid and whether they are worth the crores they are paid.

Some heroes are paid in crores and some are paid in lakhs. Those that get more than one crore come in the top ranks of heroes. Let us take the Kodambakkam heroes and see how they are riding the entertainment industry.

Vijay : This young hero is the third highest paid actor with a tag of 5 crores. Like Rajini’s movies, his flicks make brisk business. In the beginning of 2005 his rate was only three and a half crores but the success of Tirupaachi and Sivakasi has changed that. If he manages to pull off a few more hits, he will cross the 5 crore mark. His father S A Chandrasekhar manages his affairs and everyone knows that papa knows how a business is transacted. Swargachitra’s Appachhan is ready to pay upto eight crores to this guy for his next venture.

Thangam directed by Bharathan

Finally, Vijay has taken the decision to do the remake of the about to be released Pawan Kalyan starrer Bangaram directed by Dharani and produced by A.M.Ratnam in Telugu.

On Friday `Swargachitra’ Appachan , Vijay’s producer snapped the remake rights from producer A.M.Ratnam for a new record price. Remember that Appachan was supposed to do Puli with director S.J.Suryah and later Murasu with Muthuvadigu as he has Vijay’s dates. First Puli was dropped and later Vijay became unhappy with the script of Muthuvadigu’s Murasu, backed out the project.

Now the actor has made up his mind to do the Bangaram remake with Bharathan a long time assistant of Dharani as director. It seems that Vijay is confident about Bharathan’s capabilities as an independent director as they had worked together for Dharani’s Ghilli.

The rest of the Bangaram (Thangam in Tamil) team will be music director Vidyasagar, cameraman Gopinath and the rest of the cast will be announced soon. Shooting is likely to start in June.
