Bollywood director-choreographer Farah Khan who was in Chennai reportedly expressed a desire to work with Vijay again. She had worked with Vijay in Nanban, a remake of 3 Idiots. “Vijay is just wonderful. He is extremely talented and so hardworking. I wish he comes to Bollywood and trains some of our younger actors on just how disciplined and punctual he is. Not only Vijay, there are many hardworking and talented actors in the south like Ajith, with whom I have already worked and would love to work in more films in future,” she said.
What’s making the news
Kannada actor-turned-politician Upendra has chosen the green and yellow autorickshaw as the electoral symbol of his Karnataka Pragnyavantha Janatha Paksha (KPJP) party. Earlier, he had told Silverscreen, “Politics is a muddy business. It has become dirty because of people and politicians who circumvent the system. To clean it, I must wear protection. So, in an effort to avoid all this nonsense, I have decided to make my political party a completely self-reliant one. We won’t ask anybody for money. That way we won’t have to please anybody else. We will stay true to our image.”
