Gandhinagar gossip


Forays into film

Noted television and film personality B. Suresha, who won the state government award for his film “Artha”, has decided to encourage young talents. He is now producing a new film “Gubbachchigalu” directed by Abhay Simha, who is a graduate from FTII, Pune.

The film has children in key roles along with veterans. . Incidentally Vikram Srivastava, who is a dentist by profession is the cinematographer of the film, while journalist N.A.M. Ismail is the story writer. B. Suresha’s Media House Studios wants to promote good films. “We hope to do one film a year and also take up directing a film,” he says. Rajesh, Anu Prabhakar, Mandya Ramesh, Rangayana Raghu, Master Abhilash Kashyap, Baby Prakruthi are in the lead roles in the film. .


Back to Kannada

Kannada girl Lakshmi Rai hails from Belgaum, but somehow she got more opportunities in Tamil and Telugu film industries in the beginning. Now, Lakshmi hopes to make good what she had lost earlier. She is now acting in a glamorous role in “Minchina Ota” directed by Ramesh. Lakshmi Rai had earlier acted in the Kannada film “Valmiki” with Shivaraj Kumar and “Snehaanaa Preethinaa” in which she was teamed with Darshan.

Lakshmi Rai has just signed a Malayalam film with super star Mammooty. Lakshmi Rai is presently acting in Tamil films “Dhaam Dhoom” with Jeyam Ravi and in “Vellithirai”.


Wedded bliss

The whole of last week it was Golden Star Ganesh who made lot of news for his off-screen activities. Ganesh, who had switched off his mobile for nearly three days after his wedding, says that he has chosen his life the way he desired and also a life partner whom he loved dearly. “I wanted to marry her and I am happy about my decision. Even Shilpa is happy about it. I hope the controversies end as we want to look at our future, rather than looking back,” says Ganesh.


Finally signed up

“Chanda” heroine Shubha Poonja has just signed a new Kannada film “Slum Bala” which will be directed by journalist turned film director Sumana Kittoor. “Though ‘Chanda’ was a box-office hit, I was not getting the right kind of roles. . Then director Sumana Kittoor met me and narrated the story, which was quite appealing. Now, I am working again with Vijay, who is my lucky hero. I hope this new film will achieve a greater degree of success than ‘Chanda’ and I will be able to get opportunities to work with big heroes,” hopes Shubha Poonja.
