Gossip: Charmi and Anitha in M S Raju's film?
Two more heroines step into M.S. Raju's camp for his next film Purnami. Prabhu Deva who has already proved himself, as a director will wield the megaphone. Immediately after Nuvvu vosthanante nenoddantana, Raju announced that Trisha would be the leading lady but there was no mention about the other heroines to star in the film. However, the camp says that the script has room for two more heroines and hence it was decided to take Charmi and Anitha. The buzz is that these two heroines also have equally important roles to portray. The film has Prabhas in the lead while dancing sensation This is going to be a big break for Anitha who of late has been in hibernation.

Snippet: Andhra Girls Follows Trisha Fashion

The one actress who succeeded in this was Nadia. For sometime, Tamilnadu fashion was in the grip of Nadia hairstyle, Nadia bangles, Nadia saris and so on.

Another actress who made waves was Khushboo. Not content with building a temple for her, her fans even came up with something called Khushboo idlis!

Who is the next actress to be accorded that status? The whole of Andhra votes for none other than Trisha! The young ladies of Andhra follow Trisha's fashion in a bid to emulate her glamour.

Trisha usually wears a casual top or t-shirt with suitable trousers when she goes out. Her accessory is a little handbag to match with her clothes. Instead of matching high heel shoes, she usually wears a suitable sandals and a wristwatch.

The Andhra girls are following her fashion statements. They are so crazy about Trisha that it will come as no surprise if they even name a rice variety after her in Andhra!

‘Nuvve Kavali’ fame Richa is indeed not yet far from memory from the cognitions of many people. But she has been in oblivion from many years. Gossips are stating that while she was finding her luck in Bollywood, a Bengali producer lifted her recently. She was offered to perform the role of a tribal servant maid in the film.

Interesting part of the rumor is that she was offered bulky remuneration of Rs.20 lakhs for the role.

Indeed, that is really big considering the market value of both the heroine and the Bengali film field. Why she was offered that big? Are there any hidden reasons? Only readers should draw conclusions!

Ravi teja

Understanding of people on the age aspect of Ravi Teja is varied from person to person. While some say that he is 42 many say that he is above 45. But the truth is something different that comes from the actor himself.

“ I’m just 37 now. I was bornm in the year 1969. You can confirm the same from my mother. Mother never tells lies. At the age of twenty I have left for Madras to try for film roles. Initially I joined as an assistant director and continued in the same position for 10 years. Probably my long acquaintance with film people from many years could make them feel I’m 40 plus. But that is false”, says Ravi Teja.

Adding to this he says about his godfathers, “ Krishna Vamshi has laid the platform for my film career and Puri Jagannth gave scope to play big. So, these two are my god fathers and god friends.”

Well, initially the name of Ravi Teja was announced for the role of ATM in the film Shankar Dada MBBS. Later the chance was lifted away by Sreekanth. Lamenting on the same Ravi Teja says, “ I missed the great opportunity to play beside Chiranjeevi. Indeed, Chiranjeevi and Amitabh Bachchan are my role models in my life”.

He also says that he believes in the point of deserving but not in the matter of demanding when it comes to remuneration.

After lying low for several weeks, Arthi Agarwal is slowly looking to get herself up.

The suicide attempt just before the release of Soggadu brought in all kinds of bad publicity for her. It was even suggested that she might quit acting once and for all.

But with the heat and hype fully on her, Arthi did a wise thing. She shifted to Tamil. She signed for a Tamil film and concentrated her energies on that.

With the temperatures looking to cool here, she wants to be back here.

Reports have it that she may play the lead in a film to be directed by VSR Swamy.

Srikanth will play the hero.

If indeed this is true, it is good news for Arthi's fans.

Actress Simran, who is married and settled in Delhi, has given birth to a baby boy. According to sources close to Simran, the actress delivered a baby on Saturday at a private hospital in Delhi.

Simran who was married to her relative Deepak Bagga last year was in the family way and hence could not play the lead role in Chandramukhi, which went to Jyothika.

Meanwhile, Simran is expected to be in Chennai in a couple of months to take part in the shooting of Sivakasi starring Vijay, in which she will perform an item number.

Now that stork has visited her house, Simran has to decide whether she wants to concentrate on films or bring up her son personally. Her husband Deepak, it is said, is averse to she coming back to films. But if she intends doing mother roles, he may relent.

In the event, real mother or reel mother, Simran has to decide fast.
