The story of Dasavatharam is about the difference of opinions between Vaishnavites and Saivites. The story is dating back 14th century there had been a war among Hindus over worshipping of Hindu Gods - either Lord Shiva or Lord Vishnu. Then the king orders Kamal Hassan to worship Lord Shiva. But Kamal does not obey the orders of the king. Hence, Kamal is tied with the statue of Lord Vishnu thrown in the midst of the sea. Then Kamal again takes another birth. Totally he takes ten births consequtively and what he does in all these births is the essence of the film was filmed with a story based on the religion.

A real statue of Lord Ranganatha was made for the purpose of the shooting, it is said. Kamal in this film appears in 80-year-old mother get up. Similarly, he appears as Sardarji and in an American role.

A song, in this film says that he happened to be the son of Rajalakshmi and Srinivasan who always worships Lord Vishnu. You know that our Kamal Hassan's parents names are Rajalakshmi and Srinivasan?

The happy news and talk of the Tamil Nadu is about the Tamil film Super Star Rajinikanth who visited Puttaparthi to have the blessings of Bhaghavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba is carried out in all the Tamil news papers including the Daily Thanthi and Dinamalar.
According to the news, the Super Star who visited Parthi to have darshan on the Tamil New Year’s day fell on April 13, just went straight to Kulwant hall and mingled with other devotees while the Bhajan songs were sung. He had the darshan of Bhaghavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba and received the blessings.
Rumours are afloat in Chennai and other parts of the Tamil Nadu, that the Super Star is likely to launch his new political party. The decision follows after the Super Star who participated in a fast observed by the South Indian Tamil Film Actors on April 4 at the Chennai Chepauk Government Guest House. The fast was aimed to show the protest of the film actors when some Tamils living Karnataka were attacked by a section of Kannadigas to protest the Hognekal Joint Water Project Management between Karnataka and the Tamil Nadu. The Kannadigas, according to reports, attacked the Tamil Sangam, an Association interested in the welfare of the Tamils living in Karnataka.

Another version of the rumour is that Rajini's second daughter Soundarya is getting married soon. It has been talked that she would be marrying a business magnet's son. Hence, Rajni is interested to know very much the safe settlement of his daughter upon which he left for Puttaparthi to have the divine blessings of Sri Sathya Sai Baba.

Whenever his fans and many other political leaders wanted the actor to start a political party in the Tamil Nadu, the actor was shying away from them. But his visit to Puttaparthi immediately after the fastings, it is expected that he is likely to launch his nes political party.

The Chennai-Fast on April 4 went peacefully. Sometime ago, the Super Star had announced a crore of rupees would be paid in the event of implementing the Nationalisation of all the rivers in India.

Since our Bhaghavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba who has the experience of providing good drinking water to all the people through his various water project was sought by the Super Star Rajnikanth to announce such scheme for the Tamil Nadu and also to avoid any misunderstanding between the two states, it is rumoured.

However, the news of Rajini’s darshan of Sri Sathya Sai Baba has brought happiness among his fans and many of his well wishers that the reason for his darshan at Puttaparthi if it is made known to the general public on his return to Chennai.

Rajini has been visiting either Whitefield or Puttaparthi or Sundaram in Chennai whenever Bhaghavan used to visit. It was last year the actor along with his family members visited at the Athi Rudra Maha Yagnam venue in Chennai and had darshan of Sathya Sai Baba.

Actress Meera Jasmine and other film unit people were stung by honey bees when the shooting of Telugu film Korindakku was going on Wednesday. The shooting of the Telugu film was going on in a temple near Mehaboob Nagar in Andhra Pradesh. Meera Jasmine without seeing the honey bees nests just touched them; those innocent bees from their hives mistook her initially that it was a Jasmine flower from where they usually suck honey, but later they all realised that it was a beautiful actress on the shooting spot. Not knowing the importance scene of the shooting being shot they all stung the actress first followed by others who tried to save her from the bees' bitings. Not tolerated by the stinking pain caused by the bees the film unit had to wound up the shooting for that day. The bees had no venom.
