Here we bring you the best happenings of Kollywood from the just passed week


Breaking statement by Rajini :

Superstar Rajinikanth met his fans this morning at his  Raghavendra Mandapam, Chennai for a photo session and an interaction. During his speech at the fans meet, Rajinikanth hinted that if there is a need to enter politics, he might.


He said, "Due to situations, I supported a political party a few years back, and that party won the elections. Ever since that accident, I have always been asked about by many people about my entry into politics. Even many of my fans request me to join.


I want to make things clear. Many of the politicians here, want to make money, as now they have made politics into a business. I want to keep my body healthy and fit, and my heart with full of positivity. God only takes my life forward. He wanted me to be an entertainer and hence now I am entertaining people as an actor. More than money or anything else, I want to entertain them and make them happy.


So, for those people who are interested in seeing me in politics, you might be disappointed if I don't enter. But, in future, if God wants me to be in politics, I might enter, but all those negative minded people, who just want to make money through politics, please stay away. I will definitely not allow you or entertain you to make money. Stay away."


Premam Director had a script for Thala Ajith called

We had seen Alphonse Puthren stating that he has a nice script for Prabhas and Allu Arjun and added that he'd love to work with them. Likewise, when one Ajith fan asked the Premam director if he will be interested in working with Thala, Alphonse shared a nostalgic incident through his reply.


He replied to the fan's question by saying, "I remember me and my friend IB Karthikeyan waiting for 3 hours in front of #Thala Ajith Kumar's home ....nine to ten years ago when I was studying in S.A.E college Nungambakkam.


Couldn't meet him then nor till now. The wait might be for the best film...I'll wait till the Neram comes in my life to do a film with him. May be I have to prepare more as a director to deal a great actor like him.


That story which I wrote was not that interesting after I saw the film called "Once upon a Time in America" A Sergio Leone film. My story was the most horrible version of that film :D . So I chucked the Idea. :D. And the title was " Aappu" - 100 percent return guarantee."


It would be interesting to see an uber cool director like Alphonse collaborating with Thala Ajith for a refreshingly new film. Let us hope that it happens in the near future.

A big change in Vijay - AR Murugadoss film?

Though we have not got any official confirmation regarding Vijay 62, it is more than certain that Ilayathalapathy would most likely be teaming up with AR Murugadoss for the 3rd time after Thuppakki and Kaththi.


Other cast and crew details have not been finalized yet. AR Murugadoss is expected to concentrate on this project once he is done with his ongoing Telugu/Tamil bilingual film Spyder.


Earlier it was said that Lyca Productions would be funding this untitled 62nd film of Vijay. But our sources reveal that Sun Pictures is now the front-runner to produce this venture. We are told that nothing is finalized and there are also possibilities of Sun Pictures and Lyca jointly producing it.


It must be noted that Sun Pictures has associated with 2 Vijay films till now. This would be there 3rd collaboration with Ilayathalapathy if the deal gets signed.


Rajinikanth's smashing response to his haters!

On the final day of the fans meeting, Superstar Rajinikanth has yet again given a strong speech. He has once again spoken about politics and about how his speech on the first day was variedly received by the people across the state.


In his conclusion statement, he added, ''Whatever I spoke on Day 1 of this fans meet, I told it to my fans as to how they should behave, in case I enter politics. I didn't expect it to become such a huge controversy. Debates, opposition, support or whatever it may be, without opposition we cannot grow, and in politics, opposition is the key.


After seeing whatever people had commented about me on Twitter and Facebook, I don't feel hurt. Rather I only feel bad for our Tamil people for stooping so low in using some words. People will talk negatively about me, but I don't want any of you to feel bad about it. We can grow in life only through such strong opposition. They should know that they are actually helping us and not putting us down. I have lots of work, all of you also have work to do, so go back and start doing it. When the war starts, we will face it. God is there''.

Akkineni Family Bereaved!

Satyabhushan Rao, the brother-in-law of Akkineni Nagarjuna, passed away this morning. It is learnt that he has been under medical treatment for the past few months due to his prolonged illness.


Satyabhushan Rao, son of popular Telugu producer Anumolu Subba Rao, is married to Naga Susheela, who happens to be Nagarjuna's sister. Satyabhushan is survived by his wife Susheela, son Sushanth and daughter Sahitya. Sushanth is also a popular actor in Tollywood, whose last film was Aatadukundam Raa.


It is reported that Akkineni Nagarjuna, immediately rushed to his sister's house as soon as he heard about this unfortunate incident. It is also added that he has canceled the pre-release event function of his son Naga Chaitanya's Rarandoi Veduka Chudham, which was supposed to happen this evening in Hyderabad.


We at Behindwoods pray for the departed soul to rest in peace.


Ace distributor from the Coimbatore region, Tirupur Subramaniam, has taken a stand on the TFPC strike and also given his theory on how Tamil Rockers is leaking a film on the very first day.


In his statement which came out as a Whatsapp audio, he said, ''Who is Tamil rockers? How do you think Tamil Rockers is able to challenge you that they will release a particular film on the very first day? The producer sells the overseas rights of a movie to a buyer from some random country which does not even feature on the world map. The Tamil Rockers team, joins hands with such a distributor and gets the original content and is leaking the film on the evening of the first day''.


That's quite a shocking route for piracy, which the producers need to take extra care while distributing their movies in overseas market.


Breaking : Theatre ticket prices to be hiked from July 1st!

The announcement came from Finance Minister Arun Jaitley today (19th May), stating that the GST tax for the entertainment industry would be 28%.


We got in touch with National award winning writer, film critic, and producer Dhananjayan to get a clarity on this. When we asked, if the theatre ticket prices would be hiked due to this GST implementation, he said, "Yes. The audience will have to pay Rs.120 + 28% GST. Adding the tax amount with 120, it adds up to 153.20. So, the ticket price in all the multiplexes will be Rs.153. This will be made compulsory from 1st July."


This new rule would be applicable to all the theatres throughout India. Ticket prices might differ from one theatre to another, but the addition of 28% to the ticket rate, would come into practice from July 1st. Stay tuned to this space and we will update you more on this.
