Vijay is the next superstar – minister’s remarks

kadhalil-05aaa.jpg

‘The next superstar‘ – Vijay gets this remark from none other than Arcot Veerasamy, the minister of electricity and power. The minister was presiding over the official take off of the movie ‘Kadhalil Vizhunden’. The movie was produced by Atlanta Films and produced by S. Umapathy. The movie is directed by P.V. Prasath with Nakul and Sunaina in the lead.
 
 Due to the growing technological trends in the industry, it is not imperative that the lead actors master in dance and acting unlike in the olden days. It is enough if they are good enough in acting. I am closely watching the trends of the industry and have watched quite a few Vijay movies. I assume that he will be the next superstar in Tamil cinema, Veerasamy exclaimed.

Well folks, we have a long list of actors who went unnoticed after being hailed as the next best things. Ramarajan, Rajkiran and Prabhudeva are to name a few.

We can only hope that Vijay does not join the bandwagon of those disappointing actors and prove his mettle by not promoting image building and hero-worshipping in his movies, but by sheer talent.

Vijay at Sibi’s Lee function

 25082006-thn20image1.jpg

For a long time, Sathyaraj has been plagued by who will produce and who will direct the film that will give Sibi a turning point in his career. He finally decided to produce the film himself. The title of the film is ‘Lee’ and Sibi’s heroine is Nila. Prabhu Solomon, who gave a different dimension to Karan in ‘Kokki,’ will direct ‘Lee.’

The inauguration took place at Chennai’s Green Park Hotel in Vadapalani at 10am this morning. Actors Vijay, Surya, Jayam Ravi, Sivakumar, Karan, Bhagyaraj, actresses Khushboo, Aparna and others were present to convey their best wishes. Sathyaraj made every VIP go on the dais and wish.

As Vijay spoke, he glanced at the posters put up in the hall. “Sibi’s expressions on the posters are good. He looks all set with a difference. I have seen director Solomon’s ‘Kokki’ and know how talented he is. I am sure this will be a successful combination.”

Vijay grabs “Bommarilu”

In the biggest ever bidding war for the remake rights of that Telugu superhit Bommarilu, has finally ended with our ‘Ilayathalapathy’ Vijay grabbing it for producer ‘Swargachitra’ Appachan!
So the Bommarilu remake will be Vijay’s next film after Pokiri. This brilliantly packaged love story by debutant director Bhaskar featuring Siddharth and Genelia is a huge hit worldwide. The music by Devi Sri Prasad is also a chartbuster.

Every young hero in Kollywood was after Telugu producer ‘Dil’ Raju to purchase the remake rights as nearly 20 screening of the film took place in Chennai. However, it was at a show held at the Four Frames Preview theatre by Siddharth for Trisha where Vijay, Vikram and Ravi Krishna first saw Bommarilu.

Vijay fell in love with the film and could not stop raving about it after the show. He told Moviebuzz: “It is a cute film and the presentation is brilliant. It’s refreshing to see such feel-good films”.

The buzz is that Bhaskar will be directing the Tamil version and it will be a start-to-finish project. But who will plays the crucial role of hero’s strict father, played by Prakash Raj in the original? It will be hard to replace Genelia the innocent and live-wire Hasini of Bommarilu with a new girl in Tamil!

Pokkiri: Vijay shining with groovy costumes!!

 vjasin1.jpg

Pokkiri, the next Vijay flick is making great headway and a lot of news. The director, Prabhu Deva and Vijay and the rest of the crew are sparring no efforts in making the movie a sure winner. The movie is said to be a typical formula movie with all the ingredients that will get all Vijay fans up on their feet whistling and applauding. The song and dance sequences are reportedly of a never before seen standard in Tamil cinema. Even the fight sequences are reportedly stunning.

Music by Mani Sharma is sure to rock and set the feet of the audience tapping. The movie certainly sounds very enjoyable and good enough to set theatres on fire and return Vijay o the top of the Star ladder. He had suffered from a bit of low in 2006 with the poor showing of Aadi. He looks all set to return with a bang. His trademark ‘Vaazhkkai oru Vattam’ seems all set to come true in his case. The cycle of fortune seems to be turning for Vijay.

What is a Vijay movie without style? He is looking to provide style in loads with Pokkiri.
He, in the company of designer Nalini Sriram have come out with some groovy costumes. The movie will reportedly see Vijay appearing in two shirts in the same scene. One shirt over the other, that is. The scene certainly looks set for a royal performance from the Ilaiya Dalapathi. It’s Pokkiri days in Kollywood.

Vishal throws party for Vijay, Trisha, Reema, …

pokkiri71.jpg

Partying in the Page 3 circle is not news. Point in fact, parties are bare essentials for the celebrity crowd. The partying lot quite often burns the midnight oil to release the stress of the previous day’s shoot or during the weekends.

Recently, Vishal threw such a party for his colleagues Vijay, Trisha, Reema, Srikanth and Director Dharani to celebrate the grand opening of ‘Thimiru’.
 
Thimiru’s preview was showcased in Four Frames and Vishal’s close pals as mentioned above participated in the screening. Vijay and Vishal are close buddies since their Loyola College days, for your information.

Vijay applauded Vishal for his performance in Thimiru and after the screening of Thimiru, Vishal took his mates to a star hotel to set the dance floor on fire and partied all night. A birdie told us that the party went on till the wee hours of the morning.
 
Well, the Tamil cinema circle is not alien to party fever, if you thought so.
