Thursday November 16th 2017
nnnnnOn 14th November, AP Government announced the list of  the  prestigious Nandi Awards for three consecutive years – 2014, 2015 and 2016. Superstar Rajinikanth, Mahesh Babu, Kamal Haasan, Anushka Shetty, Allu Arjun, Rana,  Jr NTR, Ritu Varma were among the many that bagged honours for their performances. Unsurprisingly, SS Rajamouli’s directorial venture Baahubali: The Beginning that released in 2015 bagged 13 awards across different categories.  Baahubali won in the Best Film category.  Rajamouli was honored with the best Director Award, Ramya Krishnan won the Best Supporting actress award for her role as Sivagami and Rana Daggubati, who played Bhalladeva, won the Best Villain Award.   Keeravani, the music composer and KK Senthil Kumar also were part of the long winner’s list.  The film  also won awards for special effects and dubbing as well. While  Baahubali  winning a whopping 13 awards is not the least bit surprising, what is in fact surprising, rather shocking is  Young Rebel star Prabhas, who has given five years for Baahubali  but he is not being honoured for Baahubali in a single category.n nThe actor weighed around 100 kg as Amarendra Baahubali while as Shivudu he weighed 85 kg.  He also bought gym equipment worth a crore for his workout.

The film bagged eight awards. Balayya (Legend), Mahesh Babu (Srimanthudu)  and Jr NTR (Nannaku Prematho and Janatha Garage) won the Nandi awards for best actor for 2014, 2015 and 2016 respectively.

Angry Amala Paul says: I am an Indian citizen, I have every right to work and own any asset through out our nation freely

Friday November 03rd 2017
An investigative report says that Amala Paul bought a Mercedes S class car which costs more than a crore from a dealer named Trans Car based in Chennai on 4th August. The car was registered in Puducherry on 9th August. Amala paid only Rs 1.75 lakh as tax for this purchase.  The actress has been accused of evading tax to the tune of Rs 20 lakh by registering the car in a union territory.  It was also reported that Lt Governor of Puducherry, Kiran Bedi had ordered an enquiry about this issue.n nAngry Amala Paul has finally broken her silence on the recent tax evasion rumors and issued a statement clarifying her stance in the controversy via Facebook.Amala Paul Statement: “I am in a state of shock the way an age-old daily publication, formed on nationalist principles by freedom fighters of malabar region, is today digging such shallow ways to raise their circulations and garner public attention. I feel I have the right to speak against these unwanted speculations and harassment caused to me and my family, despite paying taxes of more than a crore this year alone. And especially now, even when the respective authorities have found no unlawful act on my part.n nI am an Indian citizen and assumed that I have every right to work and own any asset through out our nation freely. But now this self proclaimed socio-reformist newspaper, who has somewhere lost the meaning of its own name ‘MOTHERLAND’ and it's own history, has resorted to play the divisive regionalist propaganda, by making the innocent local readers believe that their state is separate from the nation at large.nI wish to know from these wise-men that I have worked in Tamil Cinema as much as I have worked in Malayalam cinema, so help me rationalise my assets in both the states by respective distributions of my pay cheques. And should I have to ask their consent to work in Telugu Cinema or if I wish to own an asset in Bangalore? Last time I checked Bangalore’s currency is also the same i.e. Indian Rupees ‘INR’.n nHave these wisemen forgotten from where our country has come in the last seventy years, after countless efforts by many a great men, finally there is a sense of unity in our diverse nation. Even when the government has succeeded in bringing the country under one unified tax regime, I humbly request them to stop dividing and isolating the sentiments of our people. I sincerely hope a day will come when our future generations, will not be Keralites, Tamilians or Punjabis or Gujaratis but be just Indians and working together for the growth of our great nation. Let’s fight the real fight, the fight against poverty, corruption, illiteracy, injustice and not resort to lynching law abiding citizens for short-sighted gains.”
