Mohan Babu on Cloud Nine

Mohan Babu has the history of hitting back with a bang when he went down. After a night mare of films like 'Yama Jatakudu' and 'Post Man', Mohan Babu is sitting pretty by signing two of the most talked about films. One is Rayala Seema Ramanna Chowdary(RRC), which deals with factionalism in Rayala Seema ( a la Antahpuram and Samara Simha Reddy). Another one is Sardar Nagi Reddy(SNR), a film to be made by Dasari on his own banner whose story is inspired by a real incident that happened in Nizam way back when 200 downtrodden people were decimated in a wedding ceremony by the land lords.

Coming to the RRC part, Rajni Kant has given the story for this film for the first time. Suresh Krishna is the director. Mani Sharma is providing the music. Tharun is the Choreographer. And he is being blooded as the villain too. Tharun Kumar is the son of late dance master legend Hera lal of Hindi. It's shooting started in Polachi on 10th of May by caning a song. Good days ahead for Dr. Mohan Babu.

Naga Babu to be twice lucky!

Nagababu might have turned to red in this year as an actor after dismal performance of his films as an actor, Hands Up and Manasu Paddanu Kaani. But he has a reason to smile from ear to ear. He is going to produce two films with his mega brothers this year. His film with Pawan Kalyan will start in a couple of months. Bheemineni Sreenivas, who directed 'Suswagatam' will direct this venture. Pawan Kalyan is repeating his director for the first time. Another film to be produced will star his big brother Chiru, which will start in the fag end of this year. In the past, Nagababu announced a project that stars three brothers Chiru, Naga Babu and Pawan Kalyan to be directed by Pawan himself. Due to some unknown reasons it was dropped.

Raja Vannem Reddy has a sring of producers lined up

The third biggie of the year, Kshemamga Velli Labhamga Randi(KVLR) surprised many trade pundits with its extraordinary performance.
