Dhruv Vikram Debut Titled Varma; Mersal Director Atlee Faces Copyright Charge & More


‘Iraiva’ Is The Latest Single From Sivakarthikeyan’s Velaikkaran

Anirudh Ravichander’s work for Velaikkaran is not going to be revealed all at once. As is the norm, the makers have decided to release singles from the film first, in a bid to drum up publicity. The latest reveal is the soulful Iraiva that begins with a beautiful guitar-piano arrangement. Soon enough, Anirudh steps in – the song takes a sudden turn then. What began as a slow number becomes a heavy metal head-banger. With Jonita Gandhi’s entry, the song again assumes its soulful origins.

Dhruv Vikram’s Debut Titled Varma

Dhruv Vikram’s acting debut has been titled Varma. The first look poster of the film was unveiled on social media recently. A remake of the Telugu hit Arjun Reddy, the film will likely to go on floors soon. Casting is on at present. Director Bala is at the helm of this project.

STR Lends His Vocals For A Quirky Demonetisation Anthem – Thatrom Thookrom 

STR has partnered with Kabilan Vairamuthu for an anthem on demonetisation. Silambarasan is at his energetic best in this auto-tuned song that is catchy. ‘No cash’ is the refrain in this track that tries hard to be a commentary on demonetisation and GST.

A typical gaana infused number, this song is certainly gimmicky in nature. However, that doesn’t seem to stop fans from listening to it.

Ranveer Singh Says That He’s ‘Losing His Religion’

Ranveer Singh’s recent tweet, in which he said that he’s losing his religion, has rubbed social media the wrong way.

While the actor used the phrase as a caption for a black and white photo, some social media users interpreted it as a sign that the actor was considering changing his religion after playing Alauddin Khilji in Padmavati. 

Lakshmi Under Flak For Using Bharathiyar Song

The short film Lakshmi has divided audience since it’s unveiling sometime back. Starring Lakshmi Priyaa, the short film focuses on a married woman who decides to have an affair. A Bharathiyar song is used in it and this has offended viewers who took to social media to criticise the move.

Thus far, the movie’s crew and cast have not yet responded.

Louis CK Admits Sexual Harassment Allegations; Apologises

Comedian Louis C.K. admitted to engaging in sexual misconduct in front of several women. Through a press statement, Louis wrote:

“These stories are true. At the time, I said to myself that what I did was okay because I never showed a woman my dick without asking first, which is also true. But what I learned later in life, too late, is that when you have power over another person, asking them to look at your dick isn’t a question. It’s a predicament for them. The power I had over these women is that they admired me. And I wielded that power irresponsibly,” reported The New York Times. 

Netflix has severed ties with Louis as a result of the fallout. The release of a film – I Love You Daddy, starring the comedian has also been put on hold.

Mersal Faces Copyright Claims

The producers council has sent a notice to director Atlee. The Mersal filmmaker has been accused by producer Kathiresan of using the core plot of Moondru Mugam for his recent film. Kathiresan holds the remake rights to the Kamal Haasan starrer. Atlee has not responded to the notice thus far.
