Comedians are usually the perfect foil to the action star’s brusque, macho act — either as sidekick or fallguy. But this time Vadivelu and Vijayakanth have crossed swords after the comedian said that the actor-turned-politician’s supporters attacked his house.

Chennai police registered a first information report against DMDK leader and film star Vijayakanth and 40 others on Sunday following an attack on the house and office of leading Kollywood comedian Vadivelu. The action was based on a complaint from the comedian who had insinuated that Vijayakanth’s supporters were behind the incident since he had a running feud with the actor-politician over the past year. However, when contacted, a DMDK spokesperson described this as an attempt to foist a case against the party’s leader and insisted that party cadres were not involved in the violence.

According to Vadivelu, a group of around 40 persons carrying wooden logs had descended outside his house on Velayutham Street in Saligramam at around 10.40 am and started pelting stones, damaging windowpanes. They also pushed aside the security guard Chintamani. Vadivelu and his family members, who were inside, were not hurt. A little while later, the mob headed towards his office located on the nearby Vedavalli Street and allegedly ransacked the premises.

“This is not a laughing matter. It is little over a year since they (Vijayakanth’s supporters) first clashed with me (Sept 12, 2007) and I am due to appear in court on Monday in connection with that case, and now they are compounding the matter,” Vadivelu told The Times of India. A year ago, separate cases were registered against Vadivelu and Vijayakanth’s manager Sathish Kumar following a quarrel over parking of vehicles outside the former’s house. Though Vijayakanth and Vadivelu had acted together in quite a few films, the latter had stopped accepting offers casting him with the former in recent months.

People who read Ramayana will not be confused, because there are very less characters, whereas if they read Mahabharatha, then it will be a difficult thing for anyone to keep the characters in their brain boxes.Perhaps, that is the reason why all these mythics are often being told and are produced as films.

The 9X channels which has been telecasting the Mahabharatha in the name of Kahani Hamara Mahabharath Ki has won the audience, but then this serial was produced in Hindi. And the Raj TV Channel which came to know about it, got the rights of the Hindi serial and dubbed it in Tamil for the Tamil viewers to enjoy and also to learn the duties and righteousness that are advised in the epic.

The serial is to be telecast from today (22.9.2008) at 7 PM in Tamil through the Raj TV Channel.

Vijaykanth in Vikraman's direction

Posted by Chika On 9:52 PM 0 comments

It looks like Vikraman and Vijaykanth have started work for their forthcoming film Mariyadhai; Vijaykanth is looking for suitable getups and Vikraman is busy finalizing the crew. Mariyadhai’s filming will probably start next month. In this film, Vijaykanth plays dual roles and will pair up with two heroines. While Meera Jasmine has been signed up for the film already, the search for another heroine is on. It will be finalized in the coming week.

In 2001, Vijaykanth and Vikraman joined hands and created a magic called Vaanathai Pola. The film – based on sentiments and emotions pertaining to a family – was an instant hit throughout Tamil Nadu. Now, the expectation of everyone has risen up with Vikraman declaring Mariyadhai will have a similar theme, as he is the best in portraying family drama.

Vijaykanth is on the verge of completing his part in Engal Aasan, which has paired him with Sheryl Pinto again. The fact that he made a name for himself in a period dominated by the twin stalwarts Rajni and Kamal and still manages to give hit films is astonishing and shows his calibre.

Leading Tamil actress Sneha has alleged that a local channel has used her photos and name to promote a chat show, which is in no way connected to her.
In her press statement regarding this, the actress told that for reasons best known to a Tamil satellite television channel, her name and photographs have been used for a chat show with which she had absolutely nothing to do at all.

"The motive seems mischievously sinister and ridiculous..." Sneha says.
Trouble arose on Saturday when Raj TV distributed pamphlets about a forthcoming show entitled "Soodana Sneha" to reporters.

An image of the actress sans a caption or other indications of her participation has set tongues wagging that she might be turning to television as well
she said, "The channel has no business to do this to me. It is surely the handiwork of a few unwanted elements who want to tarnish my name simply because I opted out of projects for personal reasons..."

The actress had recently walked out of ace director K.S. Ravi Kumar's forthcoming venture Jaggubhai starring actor-politician Sarath Kumar.
