By Arvind Sundaram | Galatta | 05:36 PM
The first schedule of Thalaivar 168 was successfully wrapped a few weeks back at Ramoji Rao Film City in Hyderabad and the second schedule is yet to begin. The cast of Thalaivar 168 features Superstar Rajinikanth, Khushbu Sundar, Meena, Keerthy Suresh, Prakash Raj, Sathish, Soori, Livingston, ‘Tony’ Redin Kingsley and others. Produced by Sun Pictures and directed by Siva, this rural family drama has music by D Imman. Going by the latest buzz in K-town, it is highly speculated that actor Siddharth will be seen in a very important role in this film.
The makers are yet to make an official announcement on this and we will have to wait for a few more days to know about the authenticity of the buzz. He is said to be pairing Keerthy Suresh in the film. If the news happens to be true, this will be the first time Siddharth will be sharing screen space with Rajinikanth.
Siddharth is already acting alongside Ulaganayagan Kamal Haasan in Indian 2, directed by Shankar. Sharing screen space with two of the biggest legends of Tamil cinema should definitely be making Siddharth happy. As a lead hero, Siddharth was last seen in Aruvam and will be looking forward for the release of his next film, Takkar, which is scheduled to hit the screens in February.
Monty Python star Terry Jones is no more... Siddharth posts heartfelt condolences!
By MKV | Galatta | 12:20 PM
Welsh born star Terry Jones is a household name for followers of the Monty Python comedy troupe, which is legendary for their unique brand of humour! Terry Jones, who was born in 1942, has now passed away after a prolonged battle with a rare form of Dementia. An actor, writer, comedian, director, presenter and also a renowned historian, Terry Jones and his writing partner Michael Palin, got together with American filmmaker Terry Gilliam to create the Monty Python movie series. An Oxford graduate, Terry Jones has been an inspiration for many with his wit and humour.
Terry Jones was 77 when he succumbed to the four-year battle with dementia, which had even robbed him of the ability to talk. He is said to have been affected by Primary Progressive Aphasia, which affected his ability to communicate. Many leading actors, directors and other celebrities have been expressing their condolences at the passing of this legendary talent, who has affected their lives in some way or the other! Siddharth is one such actor who posted his heartfelt condolences on the loss of Terry Jones.
Family members of Terry Jones have stated that though he is no more, his works in the form of Monty Python, books, films, TV programs and other such, would ensure his legacy lives on, as a fitting memory of the polymath! They also wished that the disease which consumed Terry Jones would be entirely eradicated someday. A statement from his family states that he is survived by his wife Anna Soderstrom and children Sally, Siri and Bill. We express our heartfelt condolences on the passing of this legend...
Check out Siddharth's tweet here:
The great #TerryJones has left us. Had the honour of meeting him and telling him just how much he meant to me. A true comic legend! Be silly Terry, wherever you are. R. I. P ❤️ pic.twitter.com/Ij4Ta2xN8l— Siddharth (@Actor_Siddharth) January 23, 2020
'What's wrong with these people? Shameful' - Siddharth on fans fight
By Galatta | 12:42 PM
Whenever two big films release together, it creates a lot of hatred not between the production house or stars involved in the projects but within fans. It happened in Tamil film industry last year when Rajinikanth’s Petta and Ajith Kumar’s Viswasam clashed for Pongal 2019. Both the film managed to do well at the box office but the fight for who did better never stopped between fans. Similarly, this year we have two huge film releases in Telugu.
Mahesh Babu’s Sarileru Neekevvaru and Allu Arjun’s Ala Vaikunthapurramloo released for this Sankranti/Pongal festival. Both the films are doing extraordinary business. That’s what you expect as a filmmaker, even fans should be happy celebrating their favourite star’s film instead of pulling down the industry by creating hate trends. That is exactly what is happening in Telugu right now as both Allu Arjun and Mahesh Babu fans are spreading negativity around when they should actually celebrate.
Allu Arjun fans have created a tag saying #FakeQweenMaheshBabu whereas Mahesh fans have started a trend saying #FakeKaBaapAlluArjun. Of course all this started when the respective productions house released posters saying Sankranti Winner and Sankranti Champion. Actor Siddharth took to his Twitter space to share a few words about this issue - “#FakeKaBaapAlluArjun and #FakeQweenMaheshbabu are trending in #Telugu twitter. Lakhs of tweets. God save our cinema. What's wrong with these people? Shameful.”
