WOW Deepika Padukone Is B-Town’s Richie Rich!
Deepika Padukone, who is set to make her Hollywood debut, has already landed a spot in a list of the world’s highest paid actresses, with earnings of $10 million.
The list also features heavyweights like Hollywood stars Jennifer Lawrence, Julia Roberts and Jennifer Aniston.
Deepika, daughter of India’s celebrated badminton player Prakash Padukone, is the only newcomer to the ‘World’s Highest-Paid Actresses’ ranking and is the only Indian star to make the cut.
She has found the tenth spot in the list, which is topped by Lawrence.
Of the 10 list members, 30 per cent, including Padukone, hail from outside the US.
Chinese actress Fan Bingbing was also featured in the list for the second consecutive year, while Charlize Theron, a dual South African-American citizen, returned to the list for the first time since 2013, reported forbes.com.
For the second year in a row, Lawrence became the world’s highest paid actress with $46 million earning while Melissa McCarthy was in the second spot by pocketing $33 million.
Lawrence’s impressive earnings consist largely of a profit slice from the big box office gross of her final ‘Hunger Games’ instalment and a mammoth upfront fee for ‘Passengers’.
As for Deepika, who will soon be making her Hollywood debut along ‘Fast and Furious’ star Vin Diesel in ‘XXX:
Return of Xander Cage’, she earns far less than her Hollywood counterparts for roles, but compensates with over a dozen lucrative endorsements.
The magazine also put the spotlight on the gender pay gap in the Indian film industry, stating that “though a top male star might earn close to $5 million a movie, prominent Indian actresses rarely clear $1 million a film”, adding that “it’s a discrepancy not uncommon in Hollywood”.
Other names to feature in the list include Mila Kunis, Amy Adams and Scarlett Johansson.
What may come as a surprise to many is that there was no mention of actress Priyanka Chopra, who is making waves in the west, be it for her American TV series “Quantico” or her Hollywood debut film “Baywatch”.
Karthi Completes Another Milestone In ‘Kaashmora’
Actor Karthi is presently shooting for director Mani Ratnam’s ‘Kaatru Veliyidai’ and he has been simultaneously dubbing for his upcoming mega budget fantasy-horror flick ‘Kaashmora’.
The shooting of this ambitious flick directed by Gokul was completed in June. Now Karthi has announced that he has completed the dubbing process for all the three characters he has played in the film which will have a contemporary as well as a period setting.
Karthi has named it as one of the most challenging and tiring experience yet a gratifying one after director Selvaraghavan’s historic fantasy ‘Aayirathil Oruvan’.
This marks the completion of an important process in the progress of the film as the post-production team has been working hard to bring the film to the screens in October last as a grand Diwali 2016 treat.
Karthi plays Kashmora, a contemporary youngster who involves in black magic and Raj Nayak a warrior with grey shades who lived many centuries ago. The third character played by him has been retained as a suspense element.
Produced by S.R.Prakash Babu and S.R.Prabhu under the Dream Warrior Pictures banner the film stars Nayanthara and Sridivya as female leads. Santhosh Narayanan has rendered the musical score.
NTR To Miss Premier Records Again
Young tiger NTR Jr is one of the top heroes in overseas market alongside Mahesh Babu and Pawan Kalyan. But, like the other two, he has been unable to score premier records courtesy bad release dates.
Makers of ‘Janatha Garage’ have announced that the much awaited action entertainer will hit screens on September 1, Thursday. Owing to the imminent national bandh on September 2, makers took this decision.
The September 1 release date looks very good in the two Telugu states as Janatha Garage can leverage a holiday-in-disguise-of-bandh on its second day. Alongside the four day weekend, the film will also enjoy a holiday on Monday, Sep 5. But, the scenario in US is entirely different. Thursday release means the film will have its premieres on Wednesday itself.
NTR’s last release ‘Nannaku Prematho’ missed the premier record and collected only $355K from premiers as it was screened on Tuesday. NTR is likely to miss the premiere record again with a Wednesday release.
Janatha Garage has a perfect combination to rewrite record books by the end of its full run. But, premiere record is an impossible feat. Baahubali with $1,382K and Sardaar Gabbar Singh with $616K are sitting on top.
Kamal Hassan Honoured French Chevalier Award
Ulaganayagan Kamal Hassan has added a new feather to his hat.
His multi-talent skills helped him to reach to more people.
He has served the film industry in different roles as an actor, writer, director, dancer, lyricist, singer, and producer.
The Government of France has now honoured this legendary personality with the Chevalier award.
Earlier, the honour was accorded to legendary actor Sivaji Ganesan in 1995.
Chevalier is one of the highly regarded International honours given for contribution in the art industry.
The entire Tamil film fraternity was very much happy over this and has been congratulating Kamal Haasan over the new honour.
Kamal Haasan is currently taking rest at home and would resume his work for Sabash Naidu after two months.
Two Countries In The Hands Of Telangana Director
Director N Shankar might have been away from the media glare from longtime now.
The director of Jai Bolo Telangana was in news last time when he had claimed he would be teaming up with Kamal Haasan.
However, it didn’t materialise and Shankar had been away from limelight.
The latest is that Shankar is back in headlines after long hiatus.
He has beaten the star producers of film fraternity and bagged the Telugu remake rights of Malayalam super hit Two Countries.
The film was one of the most successful Malayalam films and hence there’s a great buzz on its Telugu remake especially after films like Drushyam worked well.
Shankar is going to remake the film in Telugu with Sunil as the star.
Apparently, Shankar himself going to direct and produce the film.
Like its original, Shankar is planning to shoot the total film in US.
The firm’s muhurat is expected to take place soon.
Looks like, Sunil doesn’t want to experiment much and wanting to go with a safe bet.
Charan Trying To Win Where He Lost
Ram Charan is currently doing a dual role. Not in his film but in his life. While producing Chiru’s prestigious 150th film, he is also working on his upcoming film ‘Dhruva’. This time Charan is going against all odds to score a hit.
Star hero films are usually released in festive seasons. Ram Charan’s films are no exemptions. His hit films like ‘Nayak’ and ‘Yevadu’ were released during Sankranti season and did exceptionally well in spite of competing with other heroes.
But, Dussera season proved to be unlucky for Charan. His last two films, ‘Govindudu Andarivadele’ and ‘Bruce Lee’ were released during this season. While ‘Govindudu’ ended up as an average family drama, ‘Bruce Lee’ became one of the biggest disasters in his career. Nevertheless, Ram Charan once again steps in Dussera race with his film ‘Dhruva’.
This proves his confidence on the content of ‘Dhruva’ and hope this film turns successful and brings in happiness to everyone related to the film.
