Why Suriya missed 3 Idiots?

The uncertainty that prevailed over who will be donning the main lead in the 3 Idiots remake has been finally put to rest with news that it is none other than Vijay. Ever since this remake, which is being directed by Shankar, was announced, the media has been speculating that the role would either go to Vijay or Suriya.
At a time when it was expected that it will be Suriya’s cup of tea, an announcement was made that Vijay has been finalized and will be joining the camp shortly. So, what made Suriya opt out from the project? According to sources close to both the stars, it’s their friendship more than anything else that made Suriya back out of the project as his hit film Singam was initially offered to Vijay but the actor could not take it up for want of dates and eventually it landed in his court.
Sources say that he did not want this to repeat with the 3 Idiots remake and hence decided to move out. Further, it is said that Suriya shares a good rapport with Vijay and he does not want to take away yet another fine opportunity from his good friend

Suriya’s ‘Raktha Charithra-2’ generated huge sensation in B-town as the film had a power packed performance by Suriya. In fact, the film critics acclaimed second part to be racier than RC-1 as the conflicts were more and screenplay was much engrossing.

The film’s satellite rights has been sold out for record-breaking price to Sony Set Max and the movie will be aired tomorrow night at 8 p.m.

The film has gained more momentum as the real life inspiration of Surya’s character, Maddelacheruvu Suri was shot dead recently. This has intensified the interests towards the film and for the one, who weren’t aware about this film will have a look over it in small screen now.

Suriya all praises for Santhanam

Comedian Santhanam is on a roll. The busiest comedian of Kollywood is in raptures after accolades are pouring in for his performance in 'Siruthai'. Actor Suriya who met Santhanam has said that the one liners of Santhanam in the film were as hilarious as the ones of legendary Goundamani sir. He even said the best comedian award for 2011 will be reserved for Santhanan.

But the rise in popularity has also made Santhanam costlier. The comedian who was getting remuneration depending on the budget of the film has now consolidated his fee. The new rate card says Santhanam is charging Rs. 30 lakhs for a film which will take only 15 days of his work. If one needs more days, he will be charging an additional 5 lakhs per day.

Wonder how many comedians managed to reach this height before in the early years of their career!

I want to work with Suriya: Taapsee Pannu

Who wouldn’t give up the opportunity to be part of the glamour world? It’s therefore not surprising to learn that Taapsee Pannu gave up an offer to work with a leading IT firm for films. With several commercials to her credit, her pretty face was noted by several film-makers. What’s more? She debuted opposite Tamil star Dhanush in Aadukalam that hit the theatres last week.

With several stars, including Rajinikanth, praising her for her performance in the movie, Taapsee seems to be in the mood for celebration! “I get bored easily and am constantly looking out to do something different. Getting into the film industry is an outcome of just that — an experiment. I began to get offers from the south after I won a couple of titles at a beauty pageant. So I decided to act. But I find myself enjoying my job thoroughly,” she says.

Getting to work with a star in the first film ensures you of a ticket to sustainability from day one. Taapsee says, “Dhanush is an evolved actor in the true sense. I didn’t have the slightest clue about Kollywood and the language too was a problem. But he helped me understand the industry,” she says, adding, “I had to deliver a dialogue that ran for more than six lines without prompting. I was panicking, but with the help of my co-star and director, I did so with ease.”

Taapsee’s quite upbeat about her new life as a film actor and gets talking about her wish list of stars she wants to work with. “People from the north know the stalwarts — Rajinikanth and Kamal Hassan. But after Suriya’s performance in Rakta Charitra, a lot of girls are curious about him. He is my favourite actor and I would love to work with him,” she giggles. In fact, she even conveyed her intention to the man himself. “I met Suriya during the audio launch of my film and told him exactly what I felt. He apologised for not coming up to congratulate me first. I thought that was a cute gesture,” she adds, hoping to see her dreams come true soon.
