HOT BUZZ: Siva continues his 'V' sentiment for Thalaivar 168 title?
By Vivek Raj | Galatta | 12:57 PM
It came as a massive sudden surprise a while back when Sun Pictures announced that their next film with ‘Superstar’ Rajinikanth would be directed by blockbuster director Siva. Tentatively titled Thalaivar 168, the upcoming project will be Sun Pictures’ third-time association with Rajinikanth after their previous smash successes, Enthiran and Petta. With production on Thalaivar 168 apparently being planned to kick-off from December, there are now reports stating the film has been titled as Viyoogam. Speculations have been rife that Viyoogam has been locked as the title of Thalaivar 168 considering Siva’s films with ‘Thala’ Ajith all start with the letter ‘V’ and ends with the letter ‘M’ (Veeram, Vedalam, Vivegam and Viswasam). As of now, it remains to be seen if Viyoogam is indeed the title as it sounds to be too scientific and director Siva had previously stated that the film will be an out-and-out rural family entertainer that will be catering to audiences of all ages.
The talk about Rajinikanth and director Siva teaming up first shot up when the iconic actor invited the Viswasam director to his residence at Poes Garden in Chennai earlier in May. As of now, Bigil editor Ruben has been confirmed to be part of Thalaivar 168 and composer D. Imman is also set to come on board as to score the music. Rajinikanth fans are now awaiting the motion poster of his next film, Darbar, under A. R. Murugadoss’s direction, which will be released on November 7.
Rashmika Mandanna and Siruthai Siva come together on the Galatta Wonder Women Awards stage!
By MKV | Galatta | 04:05 PM
One of the most popular heroines of South Cinema currently, is the gorgeous Rashmika Mandanna, who burst onto the scene with the Kannada movie Kirik Party, in 2016. After a couple of Kannada movies, she made her debut in Tollywood and with her very second movie - Geetha Govindam, alongside Vijay Deverakonda, she became a household name. The blockbuster 'Inkem Inkem' song, immediately turned her into a youth sensation and she followed it up with a memorable performance in her latest release - Dear Comrade. Despite not starring in a Tamil or Malayalam movie yet, Rashmika has quite a fan following among the audiences across all the South industries. She has a huge lineup of movies in the offing, including her Tamil debut Sulthan, alongside Karthi.
Rashmika was awarded with the 'Youth Icon of South India' award, at the Galatta Wonder Women 2019 Awards, which was held on October 20th, at the Anna Centenary Library auditorium, in Chennai. Presenting her the award was the much-sought-after director Siruthai Siva. Siruthai Siva got on-stage through a special entry to thunderous applause from fans and was cheered on and on for quite some time before he could even address the gathering. He promised that Thalaivar 168 with Superstar Rajinikanth would be an action loaded family entertainer and that they would begin shoot soon. Rashmika then made a splashing entry on stage and couldn't stop beaming at the response from the crowd.
Rashmika was overwhelmed with the crowd support and stated that she was very happy with the response from Tamil audiences even before she has actually completed shooting for even 1 Tamil movie fully. She also added that she would try and dub for herself, in Sulthan. On the anchors' request, Rashmika then shook her legs to the chartbusting 'Rowdy Baby' number from Dhanush and Sai Pallavi's Maari 2. Rashmika and Siva raised the roof at the auditorium and we thank the both of them for gracing the Wonder Women Awards and making it a grand success!

One of the most highly anticipated films of 2019 will have to Atlee's upcoming big venture with Thalapathy Vijay which is tentatively titled Thalapathy 63. This project went on floors a few months back and it has been in the limelight ever since. With a star case of Vijay, Nayanthara, Kathir, Yogi Babu, Vivekh this film has been in the talk in town for months now. Another hot topic the audience like talking about is regarding Vijay's next project after the completion of Atlee's film which is now tentatively titled Thalapathy 64.
The latest buzz in town is that directed Shiva known for his viral hit films with Ajith such as Veeram, Vedalam, and Viswasam, is now expected to direct Vijay for Thalapathy 64.
It is also said that this venture will be bankrolled by Super Good Films. Super Good Films is headed by R. B. Choudary who is the father of actor Jiiva and Jithan Ramesh. Super Good Films has earlier collaborated with Vijay for Jilla, Thirupaachi, Love Today, Poove Unnakaga, Shahjahan and Thulladha Mannam Thullam. We tried getting in touch with the director himself but, he was unavailable for the moment. We then got in touch with Jithan Ramesh to confirm this news, the actor stated that,
"This news is completely false. No, we are not producing Thalapathy 64" Looks like it was another baseless rumor after all. We are yet to hear an official word from Shiva regarding this, stay tuned for that!
Director Siva again for Thala 60? - Official answer from Ajith's side
By Arvind Sundaram | Galatta | 01:48 PM
Thala Ajith is currently shooting for his 59th film with director H Vinoth at Ramoji Film City in Hyderabad. Bankrolled by Boney Kapoor's Bayview Projects LLP, this untitled film is the official remake of Amitabh Bachchan's Pink. The shooting is underway and the film is planned to release in summer 2019.
Boney Kapoor had recently revealed in an interview that he had acquired the remake rights of the Egyptian film, Hepta: The Last Lecture. The hot buzz in Kollywood circles suggested that Ajith could play the lead in this remake, as the actor had already given dates for his 60th film to Boney Kapoor. The rumours got even more spicier this morning when it was said that director Siva could helm this project as his equation with Ajith is quite successful.
However, when we checked with our sources close to Ajith's side, they vehemently denied the news as a baseless rumour. They also added that the director and the subject for the actor's 60th film are yet to be finalized. Looks like we will have to wait for some more time to know about Thala's next project.
For the people who would want to see the trailer of Hepta: The Last Lecture, here it is:
Director Siva and team celebrate Viswasam with fans!!!
By Avinash Pandian | Galatta | 12:22 PM
Undoubtedly, Rohini Silverscreens (Chennai) is probably the best place for a fan to watch their favourite star’s film and celebrate without any restrictions. It is not a fort for one particular star but for the industry as a whole.
It is also the perfect place for filmmakers to understand the pulse of the audience – scenes that the audiences like and the ones they don’t. A couple of days back, Sun Pictures Kalanithi Maran watched Petta in Rohini theatre and now it is time for the Viswasam team to watch their film in the very same multiplex.
Rohini’s official Twitter space shared a video of the team entering the premise. Director Siva, music director D Imman and PRO Suresh Chandra can be spotted in this video. Apparently, they enjoyed watching the film again with the fans.

By Lokesh RV | Galatta | 02:31 PM
A fake account under the name of Thala Ajith's manager Suresh Chandra has been tweeting about Thala Ajith's upcoming movies and an interesting tweet came out saying that Ajith's Thala 60 will be directed by Siva with Keerthy Suresh as the lead actress and venture will be produced by Dhananjayan. The producer himself replied to the fake tweet in his own sarcastic way. The twitter conversation has created a confusion on social media.
Here is the Twitter conversation,
Fans are highly requested not to believe such information given by fake accounts and are asked to wait for the official confirmation.
Which political leader does Siva reminds us?
By | Galatta | 01:08 PM
Tamizh Padam 2.0 starring Siva is a spoof as the original, we knew. But the team keeps shocking the fans with back to back surprise elements. Earlier we had a poster released by Siddharth commenting that Tamil Rockers is their official piracy partner.
If that was not enough, they have another poster with Siva sitting cross legged in meditation that imitates Tamilnadu Deputy Chief Minister Mr. O. Panneerselvam. The poster also has a tagline 'Police Athiyayam' meaning 'Police Chapter'.
Looks like the team is leaving no stone unturned and they are shooting from today.
