Director Shankar, whenever, he makes films based on politics and corruption, he gets it right all the time. Movies like Gentleman, Indian, Mudhalvan, Anniyan and Sivaji are some classic example of that. Now he back to the political corruption genre with Indian 2, so the expectations are huge and Shankar is most likely to strike gold this time. This sequel to the 1996 blockbuster Indian, is bringing together Ulaganayagan Kamal Haasan and ace director Shankar after a gap of over 20 years. Bankrolled by Lyca Productions, this magnum opus will bring back the iconic Senapathy to the big screens. But Indian 2 has been in the making for quite some time now. It was delayed for various reasons and the recent one being the surgery of Kamal Haasan. Now the actor is finally back to the sets of Indian 2 and the shooting is underway once again in Chennai Film city.
The ensemble cast of this movie includes Kajal Aggarwal, Siddharth, Rakul Preet Singh, Priya Bhavani Shankar, Nedumudi Venu, Bobby Simha, Delhi Ganesh, Vivekh and a number of other actors.

Raghava Lawrence meets Kamal Haasan on this latest controversy - official statement here
By Arvind Sundaram | Galatta | 05:32 PM
Raghava Lawrence recently hit the headlines for his comment on Ulaganayagan and Makkal Needhi Maiam Chief Dr Kamal Haasan. At the audio launch of Superstar Rajinikanth’s Darbar, Raghava Lawrence had reportedly stated that he, along with his bunch of friends, during his childhood, without any knowledge had hit cowdung on the posters of Kamal Haasan’s films. This created a controversy among the Kamal fans and the general crowd who didn’t expect these words to come out from Lawrence.
Later that night itself, the Kanchana 3 director clarified on the controversy that his speech was misunderstood by a large section of media and people and added that he never meant to be offensive. Going a step further, Lawrence has now met Kamal Haasan in person at his residence and the pictures from their meeting have been officially released.
In his official statement, Lawrence stated, “I was recently criticised for my comment about Kamal Haasan sir at a recent event. My statement was wrongly understood by the media and the people and I have already clarified my stand on it. I met Makkal Needhi Maiam’s Chief, Kamal Haasan sir at his house and cleared the air with him in person. He was very humble and accepted my clarification. He also took good care of me and enquired about my projects. I would like to thank him heartily for his hospitality.” So, it looks like this meeting and Lawrence’s clarification will put an end to all the controversies.

Sandy's Pulav becomes latest object of fun inside the Bigg Boss House | Kamal Haasan | Season 3 | Ne
By MKV | Galatta | 06:42 PM
The latest promo of Bigg Boss Tamil Season 3 shows the remaining inmates of the house gathered in front of the house TV and interacting with the host Kamal Haasan for the weekend elimination. However, the tension levels seem to have eased off and the inmates are seen relaxed and having fun with Kamal himself. All of them are ganging up and making fun of Sandy's cooking, especially his Pulav. Mugen tells that the dish looked was completely mashed and looked more like Pongal than Pulav. Sandy continues explaining to Kamal that it was indeed Pulav and that it could either be eaten as Pulav or as Kozhakattai.
Kamal sarcastically tells Sandy to stick to one season as Mugen calls it Pongal and he calls it Kozhakattai (referring to the Vinayagar Chathurthi season). Losliya then reveals that Sandy had asked the camera if he could cook and give for Kamal. To this, Kamal sarcastically tells Sandy that he is seeing him as a friend only, intending why he would cook for him and treat him like an enemy. All the inmates of the house end up laughing heavily, to this statement from Kamal. How much ever the promo shows the contestants to be relaxed, the fear of tonight's elimination would surely be on their minds.
There is a strong buzz that Tharshan might be eliminated in today's show and this has not gone down well with the fans as he is considered to be one of the strongest contenders for this season's title. However, by the end of tonight's show, we will get to know who the finalists of this season are. Don't miss the show tonight...

In the first promo, we saw Vanitha interrupting Kamal Haasan while speaking to the housemates. Kamal gave a fitting reply to that which did not go well with Vanitha. It looks like the battle is between Kamal Haasan and Vanitha today. The issue continues in the second promo as well. Vanitha is seen staring at Kamal right through. He asks the housemates if they had selected the best performer of the week award without consulting everyone in the house. Cheran replied saying 'we fixed after speaking to everyone,' but Tharshan soon clarifies it was not consulted with everyone inside the house. Check out this promo

Indian 2: Kamal Haasan to finally join hands with this legendary actor!
By MKV | Galatta | 12:23 PM
After the shoot for Indian 2 initially took off in January of this year, the shoot happened for a couple of days in Chennai, before the movie's lead star Kamal Haasan had to get actively involved in his political career. Indian 2 was put on the back burner and this also prompted some sections of the media to speculate that the movie had been shelved. However, after enquiring with the movie's producers Lyca Productions, we had reported that the movie was very much on. Just as we had reported, the Indian 2 unit resumed shoot earlier this month and the movie has been progressing rapidly.
Many top stars are being signed up to be a part of the cast and following the inclusion of Siddharth, Kajal Aggarwal, Rakul Preet Singh, Vidyut Jammwal, Nedumudi Venu, Yogi Babu, Aishwarya Rajesh and Priya Bhavani Shankar, we now have news of yet another leading actor being signed up for this biggie! Actor Vivekh, who has established himself as a leading comedian and character artiste and has also played the lead in a number of movies over a 32-year-long career, has now confirmed that he is indeed a part of Indian 2! In his long and chequered career Vivekh has till date not worked with Kamal Haasan in any of the legend's projects and he himself has mentioned it on a couple of occasions.
Both Kamal Haasan and Vivekh come from the K Balachander school of films and it sure is heart-warming to see these two actors coming together in a magnum opus like Indian 2! We just can't wait to watch how massive Indian 2 is going to turn out!
