An ambitious film no doubt, the upcoming Savitri biopic Nadigaiyar Thilagam also being made in Telugu as Mahanati is en route to completion soon. Being directed by Nag Ashwin under the Vyjayanthi Movies banner with music by Mickey J Meyer the film stars Keerthy Suresh portraying legendary actor Savitri.
Mahanati also has Malayalam actor Dulquer Salmaan portraying the iconic Gemini Ganesan, who lovingly was called by fans as 'Kadhal Mannan'.
One of the most popular and leading actors in south Indian cinema, Samantha Akkineni is said to be playing a vital role to the proceedings of the film.
Vijay Deverakonda, whose popularity shot up after last year’s Arjun Reddy also has a starring role in Nadigaiyar Thilagam.
Arjun Reddy also fetched actor Shalini Pandey immense popularity and she too will be seen in Mahanati.
Meanwhile, reports now state Keerthy Suresh and Samantha will be featured in only scene in the film. It’ll be most interesting to witness them together on screen as we do not know the context or the circumstances under which the two meet in the film.
As of now, Mahanati/Nadigaiyar Thilagam is scheduled for a March 29 release date.
Filmmaker Ram has made a name for himself for making films that address contemporary issues.
Last year, his Taramani fetched him laurels from the Tamil film industry as well as among fans.
In the midst of this, Ram, who has also made a film titled Peranbu with Malayalam superstar Mammootty had its world premiere at the Rotterdam Film Festival a couple of days on January 27.
Produced under the Shree Raaja Lakshmi Films banner with music by Yuvan Shankar Raja, Peranbu also stars Anjali and Thanga Meengal fame Sadana.

Although no theatrical release date has been fixed for Peranbu, the adulation the film has received will surely lead the makers to bring it out quicker.
Few days back, actor Vijay met director Mohan Raja to congratulate on the success of his film, Velaikkaran.

We had also reported that there were rumors on Vijay collaborating with Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru director H. Vinoth for Thalapathy 63.
While Vijay is at present working on A. R. Murugadoss’s Thalapathy 62, there are already big talks surrounding his next.
According to latest reports, it is said producer RB Choudhary is planning to bring aboard Vijay for his 100th production venture under his Super Good Films banner. It is further stated that director Mohan Raja and the actor possibly discussed regarding this project during their meeting sometime back.
Actor Jiiva during a recent interview spoke about his father RB Choudhary's plans to cast Vijay in the landmark 100th film and how he too would like to be part of it.
It must be noted that Vijay recently took Mersal to blockbuster status; a film that was also the reputed production house, Thenandal Studios Limited’s 100th production venture.
Looks like Vishal is determined to make it work on the third try for his Irumbu Thirai.
Initially announced for a Pongal release on January 14, Irumbu Thirai directed by PS Mithran under the Vishal Film Factory banner with music by Yuvan Shankar Raja.
The film also starring Samantha Akkineni and Arjun was then postponed to January 26, but eventually did not make it to screens this past weekend.
Many Vishal fans have meanwhile been bewildered over the plans for Irumbu Thirai’s release which the star took to Twitter to announce that it will indeed arrive on screens on March 29 during a conversation with director Lingusamy.

The March 29 release date although a bit far for Vishal fans gives the makers of Irumbu Thirai and its Telugu version Abhimanyudu plenty of time to capitalize on the promotions allowing a head-start against any other film that decides to come in for a battle at the box office then.
Actor Tamannaah has established herself to be in the elite list of celebrities in the country especially in the south in Tamil and Telugu film industries.
Tamannaah was one of the stars who made heads turn in the blockbuster Baahubali franchise.
Her start to 2018 has also been on a great mark with Sketch starring ‘Chiyaan’ Vikram.
In the midst of this, Tamannaah, who was inaugurating a jewellry store in Himayat Nagar, Hyderabad yesterday had a lucky escape when a man named Karimullah threw footwear at her. The footwear missed the actor, but hit an employee of the store after which the actor is said to have reportedly filed a complaint with the police. Hailing from Musheerabad, Karimullah is an engineering graduate and was reportedly frustrated on the actor’s choice of roles in recent times.

Meanwhile, on the professional front, Tamannaah will next be seen in the hit Bollywood film Queen’s Telugu remake titled Queen Once Again and in Naa Nuvve with Nandamuri Kalyan Ram.
She also has the remake of the upcoming Tamil film Kolaiyuthir Kaalam starring Nayanthara, which is being made in Hindi as Khamoshi with Prabhudeva.
It is no wonder that Academy Award-winning composer A. R. Rahman commands an army of fans wherever he goes.
Lovingly called as 'Isaipuyal' and 'Mozart of Madras', A. R. Rahman is always surrounded by fans who surround him for photographs and autographs each time he is spotted in common public places or film events.
Meanwhile, the four-time National Award winner took to his Facebook to announce his efforts to make it easier for fans to take photographs with him using an app, which is currently under development.
On the professional front, ARR’s upcoming films include Rajinikanth’s 2.0, Vijay’s Thalapathy 62, GV Prakash’s Sarvam Thaala Maayam, the epic Sangamithra, Sivakarthikeyan’s untitled film and Mani Ratnam’s yet-to-be-titled multi-starrer in Tamil, Aadujeevitham in Malayalam, The Fakir of Venice, Beyond the Clouds and 99 Songs in Hindi followed by the Bruce Lee biopic titled Little Dragon and the Netflix documentary Daughters of Destiny in English.
Actor Vijay Sethupathi and his films have generated immense curiosity in recent times. Beyond his acting capabilities, fans are excited to witness the talented star in the choice of roles he slips in.
Among his lineup of films for 2018, Oru Nalla Naal Paathu Solren hits theatres this Friday on February 2. Directed by Arumuga Kumar jointly produced under the 7C Entertainment Pvt Ltd and Amma Narayana Productions banners with music by Justin Prabhakaran, the film also has Gautham Karthik as the second male lead alongside Gayathrie Shankar and Niharika Konidela as the female leads.
Based on the promotional material released so far for ONNPS, it is clear the film will be an adventure comedy. However, that’s just not all as it may seem. It is believed Oru Nalla Naal Paathu Solren will tell the story of how Gautham Karthik, a youngster from the city falls head over heels in love with Niharika Konidela and ventures with her to her tribal village where he encounters Vijay Sethupathi.
With the film including such heavy comedy elements, it will be interesting to witness these two go at it with each other when Oru Nalla Naal Paathu Solren is out this week.
Actor Sai Pallavi made a stunning debut in Malayalam in 2015 in the rom-com, Premam starring Nivin Pauly, Madonna Sebastian and Anupama Parameswaran.
She delivered yet another headstrong performance in Dulquer Salmaan’s Kali.
Sai Pallavi the branched out into the Telugu film industry last year making her debut in director Sekhar Kammula’s Fidaa, which went on to become a success.
Following a solid debut there, she then appeared in Middle Class Abbayi opposite Nani and the film cemented her position among the hearts of Telugu audiences.
That said, Sai Pallavi’s fans are still in the waiting wanting to see her in a Tamil film.
Last week, it was announced that the talented actor’s Tamil debut, Karu, directed by A. L. Vijay would hit screens on February 9.
Produced under the Lyca Productions banner with music by Sam C. S., Karu has Naga Shourya and RJ Balaji in vital roles and has now reportedly been postponed to February 23 thereby steering away from the several releases lined up on the February 9 date.
It must be noted that Karu has also been made as a bilingual in Telugu under the title Kanam.
Crime Branch Investigates Amala Paul
On Sunday, the Economic Offences Wing (EOW) of the Crime Branch arrested popular actor Amala Paul on the grounds of tax evasion after she allegedly bought a luxury car in Pondicherry with fake documents.
The EOW team led by Superintendent of Police K. V. Santhosh Kumar stated Amala Paul had appeared with a lawyer, but her arrest wasn’t recorded. As of now, it is said an evaluation of her statements is being done after which a decision on whether or not her arrest needs to be recorded will be taken.
Amala Paul in her statement cited she had rented only a building in Pondicherry.
