Is Dhruv Vikram in love with his Adithya Varma co-star?
By Vivek Raj | Galatta | 01:10 PM
One of the films that has generated quite a lot of curiosity among fans in recent times is the upcoming romantic drama, Adithya Varma, starring National Award-winning actor Vikram’s son, Dhruv Vikram. He will be making his acting debut in Tamil cinema alongside Bollywood actress Banita Sandhu under Gireesaya's direction and has been produced by Mukesh Ratilal Mehta's E4 Entertainment banner. The film is an official remake of the Telugu blockbuster, Arjun Reddy, which had Vijay Deverakonda in the lead role and has since gone on to become a cult classic spawning a Hindi remake as well titled Kabir Singh with Shahid Kapoor reprising the former’s role. With Adithya Varma announced to hit screens in September and post-production works being carried at a steady pace, Banita Sandhu’s recent Instagram post featuring herself and Dhruv Vikram along with the caption "miss you @dhruv.vikram" with a black heart emoji has raised quite a lot of eyebrows among fans as to whether the two are currently dating.
It is too early to arrive at a conclusion that Dhruv Vikram and Banita Sandhu are in a relationship based on a social media post that is cryptic in nature and doesn’t reveal much at this point of time. However, the up-and-coming stars falling in love at a ripe young age is not a far-off possibility considering they are working together all the time. Rumors have been doing the rounds for a while now that Dhruv Vikram and Banita Sandhu have been a couple since filming on Adithya Varma began and it now remains to be seen where the two are headed to next with their lives apart from their future in films.

Kamal Haasan's 7 points on Vikram that will make a chiyaan fan proud
By Avinash Pandian | Galatta | 10:00 AM
It is always a delightful sight to see two superstars sharing a stage together. Yesterday, July 3rd was one such memorable day when Kamal Haasan and Chiyaan Vikram lit up the trailer launch event of Kadaram Kondan. Both the stars had some nice words to share about one another. Kamal, as we know, is a perfectionist and it is a rarity to see him admire and appreciate the acting skills of a counterpart. At yesterday’s event, Kamal Haasan was all praise for Vikram.
Here are 7 points made by Kamal Haasan that will make any Chiyaan fan proud:
1. Kamal Haasan’s prediction on Vikram in 1992!
“I was super impressed with Vikram’s performance when PC Sreeram showed me his film Meera (1992). I told him this guy is very confident and he is going to be a superstar one day. I didn’t know him but the confidence with which he looked up and faced the camera, that’s something that cannot be taught, it has to come from within.”
2. Vikram’s success story was delayed!
“Vikram had to wait for several years to taste his first success, I didn’t like the time it took for Vikram to become Chiyaan Vikram. He should have been celebrated much before; Vikram should have had a successful film like Sethu years before then when it happened. I am telling this as a writer and a director.”
3. Kamal’s jealousy over Vikram’s acting!
“Vikram is now a big star, he has so many successful films in his kitty, and he is the darling of the masses. From Meera to Kadaram Kondan, quite a journey is it not? I have always had this habit of appreciating good acting, of course, I will be jealous but that will never stop me from lavishing praise on them. I feel happy to see Vikram perform so well and it is only a double delight when it is for Raaj Kamal Films International.”
4. Kadaram Kondan is a must watch for Vikram!
“There is one popular term in English called ‘panache,’ Vikram has got that flamboyant style and he has put that to good use in Kadaram Kondan. I will be overjoyed when I see a good film, no matter who the actor or producer may be. I have felt bad for not producing good films. I am proud and happy to have produced a good film like Kadaram Kondan. I generally criticize a lot and used to pinpoint at each and every minute mistake but I didn’t have any such issues with this film and thoroughly enjoyed watching Kadaram Kondan as a fan. I am not saying this to boost the business of the film. I will anyway be satisfied with the returns that the film will get me.”
5. From Chiyaan to KK, Kamal Haasan’s prediction!
“Out of the 45 films that I have produced, very few have given me the satisfaction level that Kadaram Kondan has given me. Just like how people remember Vikram as Chiyaan even after 20 years of Sethu’s release, the audience will remember his character KK as well for many more years to come.”
6. Vikram on par with Hollywood standards!
“Just like Vikram said, Kadaram Kondan was like watching a Hollywood film. Not just the film, even your hero (Chiyaan) looks like a Hollywood star. He sets the perfect example on how a hero should be- ‘andha pursha latchanam iruku.’
7. Kamal Haasan compares Vikram with Sivaji Ganesan
"A good actor should never be intimidated by the performance of his co-star, he should give that space and confidence for them to excel. They say Sivaji dominates his co-star while acting. No! definitely not; he is someone who lets good actors take the center stage. For example, in Thiruvilaiyadal, Sivaji was happy to sit back and enjoy watching Nagesh score all the brownie points because he had that confidence in himself. I see the same confidence in Vikram."

This Bollywood sensation is the villain of Vikram 58? - official word here!
By Arvind Sundaram | Galatta | 07:44 PM
Chiyaan Vikram's 58th film was recently announced that had a very promisingly designed announcement poster. Ajay Gnanamuthu of Demonte Colony and Imaikkaa Nodigal fame was announced as the director of the film. Rumours were afloat that the film will have Bollywood director Anurag Kashyap as the antagonist, locking horns with Vikram.
However, when we checked with the director himself, Ajay denied such developments. He said, "The news is not true." Anurag acted in Ajay's Imaikkaa Nodigal as the terrorizing psycho villain and his performance was highly praise-worthy in the film. The director has now denied the rumours and we hope this puts the rumours to rest.
This yet to be titled intense action thriller will go on floors from August 2019, targetting a April 2020 release. The film is bankrolled by Viacom 18, in association with Seven Screen Studio. The star cast and the technical team for this film is yet to be announced. Stay tuned.

Later it was revived and renamed as Adithya Varma, with Banita Sandhu as Preethi and Gireesaya as the director.
The movie is speculated to be released by July 2019, although the official announcements are yet to be made.
