Jr. NTR Becomes The First South Indian Actor To Achieve This Rare Feat!

Jr. NTR, an all-rounder of Tollywood in terms of his performance capabilities, is seeming to have the best of his time in the industry. With consecutive hits in the form of Temper, Nannakku Prematho & Janatha Garage, Tarak once again has won both critical acclaim and public love with his latest venture, Jai Lava Kusa.

Tarak’s recent movie has been a mixed bag of emotions in terms of appreciation and commercial aspect. There have been two records set by Tarak which can be seen on the higher side while the business part of the movie has taken a slight hit. Let us check out what those two sides of coin are.

Successful Streak In The USA

NTR becomes the first south Indian actor to hit the USD 1.5 M mark on three successful occasions at the USA box office. Nannakku Prematho being the most successful movie standing at over USD 2M, Janatha Garage follows in next with USD 1.8 M and then Jai Lava Kusa with little less than USD 1.6 M.

Tarak’s graph in the said region is being impressive as well as the premiere collections of his movies are steadily increasing. With the actor teaming up with Trivikram Srinivas for his next flick, the movie could well be his first USD 2.5 to 3M at the US box office.

The renowned and a flamboyant area in Hyderabad boasts a special place amidst the Telangana cinema market. Clocking 1 Cr gross for a movie is considered to be an achievement which adds weightage to the success of the movie.

Almost all top stars were successful in achieving the target except the young tiger. Though NTR’s 2003 blockbuster Simhadri was almost close to the target with 98 Lakhs, the movie fell short of 2 Lakhs in order to reach the magical figure. With Jai Lava Kusa, NTR’s long pending desire and dream has finally come true.

Final Box Office Closing Share

Jai Lava Kusa has finally lowered down its curtains at the box office and the movie has ended up as NTR’s all-time second highest grosser in his career. Despite the said fact, Tarak’s movie has failed to achieve break-even in any of the Andhra & Telangana region.

Malayalam actress assault case: Trial against Dileep and other accused to begin a year after abduction


Feb,18 2018 13:45 28 IST

Exactly a year later, the much-anticipated verdict in the Kerala actress kidnap case, in which actor Dileep has been named as the eighth accused, is to emerge with the trial set to begin very soon.

And the question that is uppermost in people’s minds is — will Dileep walk free or be behind bars.

It was this day last year that the abduction incident took place while the actress was on her way to Kochi from her house in Thrissur.

Her driver allegedly joined hands with a group of ‘criminals’ led by Pulsar Suni, who is the prime accused, and drove her through the busy streets of the commercial capital of the state and after two hours she was dropped near the home of director-actor Lal.

After she told him about what had happened to her, Lal called the police. The driver was first taken into custody and in a few days the rest of the gang, including Suni, was arrested.

But the twist in the tale, in true cinematic style, came when superstar Dileep was arrested on 10 July, 2017, after two rounds of questioning. After spending 85 days in jail, he got conditional bail.

Since then the police probe team has been busy in tying the loose ends in the now high profile case.

The trial court in December accepted the charge sheet that names a total of 12 persons, including Dileep as accused, while his former wife Manju Warrier, is a key witness.

The 650-page charge sheet included secret depositions. Among the list of witnesses, are around 50 from the film industry.

Now all eyes are on the beginning of the trial as the police is burning the midnight oil to see if they can successfully recover the visuals of the kidnapping and alleged molestation, which is reported to have been filmed by the gang.

The God’s Plan video upended the usual lavish efforts from music production companies, and instead showed Drake handing out wads of cash to struggling families, toys to children, scholarships to students and checks to a women’s shelter and a youth club in Miami, Florida.

Before its release, Drake, 31, called the video “the most important thing I have ever done in my career.”

“Cried reaaaal tears looking at God’s plan music video. it’s a good life,” a user called Janae wrote on Twitter.

Hours later the Grammy-winning singer issued a challenge on his Instagram saying “let’s all watch the world be nice to each other even if it’s for 24 hours.”

God’s Plan has held the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart for the past three weeks.

Feb,17 2018 18:22 14 IST

The filmmaker, whose controversial movie with American adult entertainment star Mia Malkova was released on internet last month, appeared before the officials of Central Crime Station (CCS) in response to the notice served on him.

The police officials questioned him about the allegations made against him by women activists.

On 25 January, a day before the release of the movie, Varma was booked by the CCS. A case under section 67 of the Information Technology Act, 2000 was booked against him for publishing or transmitting obscene material in electronic form.

The filmmaker was also booked under sections 506 and 509 of Indian Penal Code for allegedly making personal comments against women activists during the debate on the movie on some television channels. When activists accused him of promoting obscenity, Varma allegedly offered to make similar movies with them. He has been charged with insulting the modesty of a woman.

The CCS this week issued fresh notice on Varma as he could not appear before the officials earlier.

Women’s organizations in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh had staged protest last month demanding ban on the release of the movie on web and Varma’s immediate arrest.

The activists alleged that Varma released the movie on web to avoid the certification by authorities. They said the filmmaker is portraying woman as a sex object and promoting pornography.
