Teja Rules

Teja Teja, has become an over night sensation with his film, Chitram. This Usha Kron movies produced film was made on a shoe string budget of 40 lacs and it became one of the highest grossers of the years and fetched a profit of 9 crores to Usha Kiron movies. Our industry men, who are mad after success achievers are chasing Teja for the dates. But Teja is playing it cool. In an interview given to a local film magazine, Teja has admitted that he want to direct Chiru. Chiranjeevi, who leant about this offered the future production of 'Geeta Arts' on a platter to Teja.

In addition to the precious project of Chiru, Teja is supposed to have offered a Venky film to be directed next year. Mahesh Babu will be acting in another film to be directed by this late found director prodigy. Jagapati Babu will be acting in Teja film 'Family Circus' in the near future. MS Reddy has given advance to Teja for his future film. Teja is directing the Tamil version of 'Chitram' now and next month the Hindi version of 'Chitram' will go on floors.

Teja is a cinematographer by profession who worked for Ramu films. He is providing story for 'Subhavela' directed by Ramana and a future film to be directed by Prasad (of Nidhi fame).

Balayya does a lateral thinking

Balayya and Anjali Zhaveri Balayya, who has obsession towards a few people in different departments(Heroines, Director, Music Director) seems to have changed his thinking. Balayya has turned towards Bollywood babes. All of the Balayya films in making and forthcoming films do not have any south heroine. His film Narasimha Naidu in the direction of B Gopal has three heroines namely Simran, Preeti Zingyani and Asha Saini. Balayya film with Sridevi arts is having two heroines Anjala Zhaveri and Shilpa Shetty. His forth coming prestigious film with Bhargav Arts will have Bipasha Basu as the heroine. He is also seems to have got rid of Koti, the music director for his films. His film with B Gopal and Sridevi Arts will have Mani Sharma as the music direction and Bhargav Arts will have maestro Ilayaraja. He is also seems to have become assessable to the young directors. The producers of Balaji arts (Bhagavan Das and Danayya) are planning to produce a film with Balayya in the direction of Teja. His film with Sridevi Arts is being directed by PA Arun Prasad of one film age.
