A week after the storm called Saaho hit the world, it was a calm for movie buffs in South cinema with not much activity. However, there were few interesting developments that sure left us excited. It is being reported that Article 15 Tamil remake may have Thala Ajith reprising the role of Ayushmann Khurana. Excited? In Telugu, a song from Valmiki was released by makers which is quite a soothing number by Mickey J Meyer. One thing that didn't go unnoticed is news about Rajamouli advising Prabhas about Saaho. From Valmiki song to Saaho plagiarism issue, here's what happened this week:
11 Years of Nani
Telugu actor Nani completed 11 years in Tollywood and fans of the Natural Star recalled their favourite movies of him. His debut film Ashta Chamma released 11 years ago on September 5 and was a sleeper hit at the box office. And the actor took to his Twitter page and was all nostalgic. Read his tweet here:
The makers of Varun Tej's Valmiki released a song titled Gagana Veedhilo from the film and the track is quite a soothing number. Composed by Mikey J Meyer and sung by Anurag Kulkarni, the song is an instant hit and is already going viral. Valmiki is a remake of Tamil hit Jigarthanda and stars Varun Tej, Atharvaa, Pooja Hegde and Mrunalini Ravi in lead roles Listen to the song here:
Enai Noki Paayum Thotta
After much delay, Dhanush-Gautham Menon's first project Enai Nokki Paayum Thotta was all set to be released on September 6 worldwide. However, hours before the release, the makers decided to stall it owing to unsettled dues between producers and financiers. The wait for Enai Nokki Paayum Thotta seems to be endless and fans of Dhanush and Gautham Menon might have just lost hope.
Rajamouli's advice to Prabhas
The mixed response to Saaho was unexpected by the makers and looks like someone already anticipated it already. Baahubali director SS Rajamouli advised Prabhas to have the run time of Saaho trimmed but it wasn't paid heed to, reportedly. His suggestion might have saved some damage for makers of Saaho.
New traffic rules
After the central government brought in new traffic rules across the nation, few movie buffs blamed Mahesh Babu's Bharath Ane Nenu for it. For the unknown, Bharath Ane Nenu has a context where Mahesh Babu, after becoming the CM, increases the fines on traffic violation exorbitantly which is similar to the new traffic rules in India. Too filmy, eh?
Article 15 Tamil remake
After Nerkonda Paarvai, Ajith Kumar may feature in another remake. News has it that Boney Kapoor has bagged the rights of Article 15 and is keen on roping in Ajith Kumar for it. While it is too early to confirm it, fans of Thala Ajith are already celebrating this piece of news.
After the release of Saaho, many viewers alleged that the film is an adaptation of French film Largo Winch by Jerome Salle. And after a fan tagged Jerome on Twitter, the French filmmaker lashed out at the makers with a sarcastic tweet. Check it out here:
