Surya or Ajith? Who will play the Idiots

December 7, 2010

With recent walkouts by Vijay and Mahesh Babu from the Tamil and Telugu versions of the remake of 3 Idiots, industry rumours are rife about who will be finally chosen for the lead role. Since the movie is critical of our educational system, it requires a senior actor to voice what the movie’s intention is all about.
Earlier STR, Madhavan and Srikanth were among the few to step away from the project. Now with Vijay also going away, there are rumours that Suriya or Ajith may be considered to take up the lead. Suriya’s attachment with the Agaram foundation also strengthens this rumour.

Mankatha – a gangster story?

December 6, 2010
A lot has been discussed about Mankatha from the day the film was announced by director Venkat Prabhu. To build the suspense factor, the director is also making announcements about the film which has the media and movie buffs going about with their guesswork concerning Mankatha.
When Venkat said earlier that ‘Mankatha is a war’ the media conjectured that it would be similar to Billa but the director immediately denied it. The latest we hear from sources close to the Mankatha team is that it is a gangster story.
The shooting of Mankatha is progressing in full swing with Ajith, Trisha, Premji Amaren and others participating in it, as the team wants to release the film on May Day.
