I’m not comfortable with skin show: Pranitha

Pranitha Subhash’s Saguni has just hit the screens and the actor is all excited. “I play a city -based girl, who is simple, sweet and innocent. I could relate to this character because it is a bit like what I am in real life. There was an inordinate delay in the release of the film because of the strike in the Tamil film industry. Also because there are a lot of artists in the film and matching their dates took time,” says the actor.

Talking about her experience working withKarthi, Pranitha says, “Karthi is amazing to work with. He’s a superb actor and a very friendly person. He makes sure everyone around him is comfortable. He’s very experienced and also very well organised when it comes to his work. Hence it was also a learning experience for me.”
Since Pranitha has worked in Tamil, Telugu and Kannada cinema, which will be her priority?
“All the three industries are of equal priority to me as I am working with some of the most talented people across these three industries,” says she. Will Pranitha be comfortable with skin show, if a role demanded? “I’m not very comfortable with skin show,” she says.

Kollywood turns to suicide

It’s struggle. It’s victory. It’s money. It’s poverty. It’s love. It’s failure. It’s insecurity. Surviving in any film industry takes a lot of emotional and physical strength.

But some people have not been so fortunate to have made it – in life. And the Tamil film industry is no exception. Kollywood too has lost numerous talented people to suicide.
No one can forget the sex symbol of the 80s, Silk Smitha. The original ‘item girl’, who’s being celebrated today on-screen, was found hanging from the ceiling fan in her house in 1996. Her professional and personal life saw its share of ups and downs that finally resulted in her succumbing to the pressures of life. But she’s not the only actor who couldn’t cope.
Talented National Award-winning actress, Shobha, died at the tender age of 17. Having started off as a child artist, she married director Balu Mahendra only to be ‘snatched from his life’. The actress, who should have lived a celebrated life, disappeared instead. Was her death driven by love or some other factor?
‘Fatafat’ Jayalakshmi’s suicide, however, is attributed to love failure and even perhaps financial woes.
Another instance of love playing havoc is the death of Monal, Simran’s sister. This young lady, who had many films to her credit, including those of top Kollywood stars, was seeing an upward surge in her career. Her sudden suicide is again attributed to heartbreak and depression.
Love was also the reason for ‘Kozhi Koovuthu’ Viji giving up her life. Post surgery to correct her near paralytic state, the actress seemed to have a bright future. But falling in a love with a married man, and unable to legally wed him, made her meet her untimely death.
While Kollywood celebrates cinema and everything that’s larger-than-life, there’s also a side to it which shows the stark reality that all those in the industry are affected as much, and perhaps more, by loneliness, love failure, poverty, insecurity…as everyone else. And sometimes their acting and roles just extend from reel to real life…fatally.

Telugu Movie News by tollywood latest news

It's a known fact that Harish Shankar is a big fan of Pawan Kalyan and he was on cloud nine when he got a call from the Powerstar to direct the remake of Dabangg. Sharing his thoughts about the film, in a recent interview, Harish Shankar said, "Pawan Kalyan is bigger than Dabangg. I was making a film bigger than Dabangg." Apparently, for the first couple of days, he kept on okaying shots in a single take till Pawan Kalyan reminded him to check again and finally he came out of the mould of being a fan. The film has done phenomenal business at box office and has become one of the biggest blockbusters ever in the history of Telugu cinema. Post the success of the film, buzz is that Harish Shankar will soon be directing a film with NTR in lead role and he has already begun working on the script. Apart from this film, he has also agreed to direct another film which will be produced by Parachuri Prasad. Interestingly, he's also keen on directing Hindi films with either Akshay Kumar or Salman Khan in lead role. It's just a matter of time before he grows from strength to strength as a filmmaker in the industry.
