Balayya unveils NTR's statue
star Bala Krishna unveiled the NTR statue at Araku Valley on 5th of
this month amidst big crowds. The brothers of Balayya and other political
big wigs attended this function. The dissident group of CM Chandra Babu
Naidu's Telugu Desam Party has gathered to support Bala Krishna. The
politicians who graced this occasion include Dasari Narayana Rao, M
Mani Kumari, CH Annayya Patrudu, MVVS Murthy, Sobha haimavathi and Ganta
Srinivasa Rao. Dasari Narayana Rao urged Bala Krishna to enter politics
at the earliest. Film personalities like Paruchuri Gopala Krishna, B
Gopal, Gopal Reddy and Chinni Krishna attended the function. Bala Krishna
has requested the government officials to put more efforts to make Araku
as 'Andhra Ooty' by doing beautification, which would fetch more tourists.
On this occasion, Bala Krishna has announced the title of his forthcoming
film as 'Seema Simham'. The writer Chini Krishna professed that Seema
Simham will cross the collections of Narasimha Naidu. The producer has
announced Rajahmundry as the venue of 100 days function of 'Seema Simham'.
Teja gives more credits to character artists
Teja knows the contributions the technicians and other artists do for
a movie. But, it's a culture in Telugu film industry that only hero
takes the credit of the successful film and there by he gets more space
in the poster publicity. In a path-breaking movie, Teja has prepared
100 days posters of 'Nuvvu-Nenu' with Tanikella Bharani, Telangana Sakuntala
and Benarjee featuring on each of the posters (click
here to see them). Teja feels that all his movies run because of
the script and direction. He is of opinion that any newcomer or non-entity
can do justice to hero role in his film. This is one of the reasons
why he is considering new faces for him next film 'Jayam'. All the youngsters
from the cinema industry are keen on grabbing the hero opportunity for
'Jayam'. We have to wait and see if he selects a kin of film personality
or go the way Krishna Vamsi has done for his next. Giving paper advertisement
for a 'star hunt', that is!
