To know about what happened in Kollywood over the past 7 days, here we present you the top 10 news of the week.
Vijay is a person who does anything for the necessity of a script. He was seen jumping from 100 feet high bridge without any dupe, in his previous film Theri.
With regards to Bairavaa, the team is currently in Rajahmundry, Andhra Pradhesh, shooting some vital scenes of the movie.
It is said that Vijay has performed an action sequence in a shirtless avatar in this schedule. Going by these reports, we can recollect the moment when Vijay performed a similar kind of action sequence in Velayudham. Vijay maintains a good physique, as we all know, and this fight sequence will be an added feather to the star's stunt proficiency.
The Rajahmundry schedule is expected to be wrapped up by this month end, and further schedules will reportedly take place in Chennai and Europe. The talks around Kodambakkam circles say that the teaser of the film might be released on Diwali.
There have been widespread speculations about the divorce of Rajinikanth’s second daughter Soundarya which have been reported in various dailies.
Finally, Soundarya took to Twitter to inform, “News about my marriage is true. We have been separated for over a year & divorce talks are on. I request all to respect my family's privacy”.
Soundarya married industrialist Ashwin in 2010 in a grand wedding and the couple has a son Ved who was born in 2015

Dhanush’s upcoming film Thodari directed by Prabhu Solomon and produced by Sathya Jyothi Films has been certified by the Censor authorities with a clean U which directly implies that the film caters for all sections of the audience.
Thodari team has made another important announcement. Yes, the film will hit the screens on the 22nd of September, 2016 (which is 10 days from today). 22nd is a Thursday and it is also not a holiday. It is surprising to see Tamil films releasing on a Thursday aiming for a 4 day weekend. Recently Iru Mugan released on a Thursday and now Thodari follows the trend.This will be Dhanush's first release of 2016.
Thodari is a romantic thriller which takes place on a moving train. The film has Imman’s music, Vetrivel Mahendran’s camera and LVK Doss’ cuts.
KR films Karthik and actress Satna Titus who made her Kollywood debut with Vijay Anthony's Pichaikaran have confirmed that they were in love and registered their marriage sometime back.
Karthik and Satna had confirmed the same through an official statement and the couple also revealed that their marriage is set to take place in a grand manner in January 2017 in the presence of both their parents, relatives, and media.
Behindwoods wishes the couple all the very best.
Director Priyadarshan and Lissy parted ways some time back. In connection with this, the Vikram heroine has issued a press statement which is as follows:
“My marriage with Mr. Priyadarsan officially ended today. We both have signed the final papers at the Honorable Family Court here in Chennai today. This has been a real ordeal. In recent times all celebrity divorces, from Hrithik and Sussane to Dilip and Manju to most recently Amala and Vijay all have been mutually agreed divorces. I am sure it also must have been painful to those couples but whatever differences they may have had, they all decided to respect each other.
Ours was the only exception where it was often fierce and uncivilized battle on and off the courts until a compromise was reached at the Honorable High Court, Chennai. Perhaps the ugliness of our divorce proceedings says all about the kind of marriage we have had.
Anyways, I feel relieved now. This is the end of a long and often very difficult road. All of us can now move on. I thank all my lawyers, friends and well wishers for their unconditional support and prayers. I thank those friends in the media who have been kind with their words. I am grateful to both my children for all their love affection and support. Above all, I thank God Almighty”

When we talk about friendship, youngsters, fun and comedy, who comes to your mind? One cannot stop the thoughts of directors Venkat Prabhu and Rajesh M coming in. How would it be if these both work together on the same movie? Yes. You are guessing it right. The duo is all set to collaborate together and work for their next.
When we spoke to the SMS director, he said "Yes, I narrated a script to Venkat Prabhu and he loved it. He will be directing the film, and I will be penning the dialogues. Both of us are currently busy with the post-production work of our respective projects (Kadavul Irukaan Kumaru and Chennai 28 - II). By November, once both our films release, we will work on this script. The cast has not been finalized yet as the film is in its initial stages. It will be a youthful entertainer and Yuvan Shankar Raja will be composing the music for the film." T.Siva of Amma Creations is expected to produce this flick.
Going by the track record of Venkat Prabhu and Rajesh, for sure, the audience can expect a humorous youthful entertainer. And when Yuvan joins these both? Entertainment guaranteed!
