The film unit, consistently providing updates, recently released a song promo that is particularly captivating music lovers. The promo is going viral on social media with the hashtag #FamilyStar. This Song is My Favorite: Vijay The film team released the first song promo on Monday night, which has grabbed everyone's attention with the line 'Nanda Nandanaa'. The melodic BGM is mesmerizing everyone. The full song, to be released tomorrow (Wednesday), has increased expectations. Anantha Sriram wrote the song, sung by Sid Sriram, making the song highly anticipated. Vijay shared the song promo on his Instagram with a caption indicating his affection for it and promising it will become everyone's favorite by the 7th. Gopi Sundar is providing the music for the film. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Vijay Deverakonda (@thedeverakonda) Mrunal Wins Hearts! In the song promo, heroine Mrunal Thakur shines brilliantly, winning fans' hearts. After 'Sita Ramam', Mrunal is seen in a traditional look that Telugu audiences adore. Even in this short 28-second promo, Mrunal's impact hints at how mesmerizing her role will be in the full movie, raising anticipation among fans for her portrayal. In Place of 'Devara'...! The film unit has clarified that 'Family Star' will be released on April 5, as announced by Vijay Deverakonda through social media. Initially, Jr NTR's 'Devara' was scheduled for release on the same day, but delays in shooting have pushed its release, allowing 'Family Star' to fix this date for its launch. The film is produced by Dil Raju, with Vijay Deverakonda aiming to continue his success after 'Kushi' with 'Family Star'. Just One Dialogue Creates Massive Hype! A glimpse of 'Family Star' created significant buzz among the audience, especially Vijay's dialogue, "Why should I iron?" which went viral on social media.

Exciting Update on the Movie's Story! There's buzz around the story of 'Family Star', rumored to be similar to the storyline of Megastar's movie 'Gang Leader'. Like 'Gang Leader', which revolves around three brothers, 'Family Star' is said to feature Mrunal Thakur moving into Vijay's house as a tenant. It's hinted to be a heroine's revenge story, with Vijay supporting her in the end. To find out if this story is true, we must wait until April 5.

    Family Star Weekend Collections: Good Collections from Overseas.
    Family Star Weekend Collections: Good Collections from Overseas.
    The latest film 'Family Star,' starring Vijay Deverakonda and Mrunal Thakur and directed by Parasuram under the production of Dil Raju, was released last Friday amidst high expectations. However, due to mixed reviews, the first day collections significantly dropped, marking the lowest Day 1 collections in Vijay's career, as disclosed by trade circles. Did the movie manage to improve its collections over the weekend? How much did it earn on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday? What Were the Weekend Collections? By the end of the weekend, 'Family Star' reportedly garnered Rs. 11.95 crores net in India. The film made Rs. 5.75 crores on the first day, Rs. 3.2 crores on the second day, and Rs. 3 crores on the third day. These figures indicate that the trolls and negative publicity surrounding 'Family Star' have indeed impacted its collections. A Shower of Dollars Overseas However, the film has received a tremendous response overseas, collecting over half a million dollars in the first three days. The NRI audience has shown great interest in watching the movie, and the makers are confident that overseas collections will increase in the coming days. Pre-release Business Figures? With high expectations, 'Family Star' did significant pre-release business. The film sold its theatrical rights worldwide for Rs. 43 crores. In Andhra Pradesh and Telangana combined, it registered Rs. 34.50 crores. Telangana (Nizam) accounted for Rs. 13 crores, Rayalaseema (Ceded) Rs. 4.5 crores, and AP Rs. 17 crores. Karnataka and the rest of India contributed Rs. 3 crores, and overseas rights were sold for Rs. 5.5 crores, totaling Rs. 43 crores as announced by trade circles. Hence, 'Family Star's break-even target reached Rs. 44 crores. Considering the current collections, it appears challenging for the film to become profitable. What's the Story? Govardhan (Vijay Deverakonda) is a middle-class young man who prefers staying in Hyderabad close to his family over moving away. He manages his family's responsibilities with a meager income. Into his routine life enters Indu (Mrunal Thakur), and they fall in love. Suddenly, a book written by Indu lands in Govardhan's hands in an unexpected manner. What's in the book? How did it affect their love? Who is Indu, really? And did Govardhan manage to overcome his family's struggles? That forms the story.

    Family Star Day 1 Collections: Shocking Collections for 'Family Star' on Day 1. The Lowest in Vijay's Career!
    Young hero Vijay Devarakonda came before the audience with the movie 'Family Star', directed by Parasuram, featuring Mrunal Thakur as the heroine and produced by Dil Raju. With high expectations, the movie released on Friday received mixed talk. Netizens heavily trolled the comedy and sentiment scenes in the movie. Did this affect the Day 1 overseas collections? Let's find out in this report. Lowest Collections! The mixed talk clearly impacted the collections of 'Family Star' (Family Star Day 1 Collections). Trade circles announced that the film grossed Rs. 10.60 crores worldwide on its first day. In India, it grossed Rs. 6.6 crores. The collections in the Telugu states were Rs. 5.4 crores, in Tamil Nadu Rs. 30 lakhs, and in the rest of India Rs. 20 lakhs. Thus, 'Family Star' has become the movie with the lowest collections in Vijay Devarakonda's career. Notably, Vijay’s previous film 'Kushi' grossed Rs. 16 crores worldwide on its opening day. Overseas Performance! Although 'Family Star' didn’t perform as expected locally, it is making strides in overseas collections. So far, the movie has collected over 475,000 dollars. The makers themselves announced this through a poster. 'Family Star' is on its way to collecting more dollars over the weekend. What's the Break-Even Target? Coming with huge expectations, the film 'Family Star' has done significant pre-release business. Worldwide, the theatrical rights of the movie were sold for Rs. 43 crores. In Andhra Pradesh and Telangana combined, it recorded Rs. 34.50 crores. Telangana (Nizam) alone contributed Rs. 13 crores, Rayalaseema (Ceded) Rs. 4.5 crores, and AP Rs. 17 crores as theatrical rights sold by the makers. Together with Karnataka + Rest of India at Rs. 3 crores and Overseas at Rs. 5.5 crores, the total came to Rs.43 crores, as announced by trade circles. Consequently, the break-even target for Family Star reached Rs.44 crores. Considering Day 1 collections, the movie needs to perform well to enter into profits. What's the Story of 'Family Star'? Govardhan (Vijay Devarakonda) is a middle-class young man who prefers not to move away from his family and works in Hyderabad. He struggles to make ends meet with a meager salary while shouldering family responsibilities. Into his life comes Indu (Mrunal Thakur), and they fall in love. Unexpectedly, a book written by Indu ends up with Govardhan. What's in that book? How did it affect their love? Who really is Indu? Did Govardhan manage to overcome his family struggles or not? That's the story. https://telugu.yousay.tv/en/family-star-first-review-vijay-shines-as-a-middle-class-boy.html

    Family Star First Review: Vijay Shines as a Middle-Class Boy!
    Family Star First Review: Vijay Shines as a Middle-Class Boy!
    Cast: Vijay Deverakonda, Mrunal Thakur, Vasuki, Rohini Hattangadi, Abhinay, Ajay Ghosh, Kota Srinivasa Rao, Jabardasth Ram Prasad, and others. Writing & Direction: Parasuram Petla Music: Gopi Sundar Cinematography: K.U. Mohanan Editing: Marthand K. Venkatesh Producers: Dil Raju, Shirish Production House: Sri Venkateswara Creations Release Date: April 5, 2024 The movie 'Family Star', starring Vijay Deverakonda and Mrunal Thakur, is released worldwide today (April 5) amidst grand expectations. Coming from the director Parasuram after the hit 'Geetha Govindam' with Vijay, the movie had set high expectations. Produced by Dil Raju under the banner of Sri Venkateswara Creations, the teaser and trailer had already created a good buzz among the audience. So, did the movie meet those expectations? Did it give another hit for Vijay? Let’s dive into this review and find out. What is the Story About? Govardhan (Vijay Deverakonda) is a young man from a middle-class family, shouldering the responsibilities of his joint family. What are the challenges faced by Govardhan’s family due to his brother? How did Indu (Mrunal Thakur), an industrialist, enter his life? How did the love track between them begin? What challenges did Vijay face with her arrival? That forms the story. How Did They Perform? Vijay Deverakonda, as usual, steals the show in 'Family Star'. He lived the character of a middle-class boy, impressing in action, comedy, and emotional scenes alike, entertaining the audience thoroughly. Mrunal Thakur too, in a significant role, captivated the audience with her beauty and acting skills, especially her chemistry with Vijay which turned out to be excellent. Their love track connects well with the youth. The supporting cast including Vasuki, Rohini, Abhinay, Ajay Ghosh, Kota Srinivasa Rao, and Jabardasth Ram Prasad have performed well within their roles. How About the Direction? Director Parasuram showcased his prowess once again with 'Family Star', crafting it as a perfect family entertainer. He filled the first half with commercial elements while the second half takes a more emotional route, connecting well with the audience. He attempts to highlight how a middle-class family thinks and lives, although the choice of a routine story and the lack of punch in dialogues could be seen as drawbacks. Some scenes felt dragged as if watching a serial, and at times, the natural essence of the family's struggles seemed missing. Overall, the movie will connect with family audiences. Technically Speaking On the technical front, Gopi Sundar's music, which was a significant plus in their previous combo 'Geetha Govindam', only lived up to the expectations in this movie except for one or two songs. The background score is passable—the cinematography by K.U. Mohanan is splendid, making the film vibrant. Tighter editing could have made the film crisper. The production values are high, with no compromise from producer Dil Raju. Plus Points - Chemistry between Vijay and Mrunal - Emotional scenes - Comedy Minus Points - Routine story - Dragged scenes Telugu.yousay.tv Rating: 3/5 https://telugu.yousay.tv/en/top-secrets-you-didnt-know-about-vijay-deverakonda.html

    Family Star: Censor Board's Shock to 'Family Star'!
    Family Star: Censor Board's Shock to 'Family Star'!
    Featuring Vijay Deverakonda and Mrunal Thakur, and directed by Parasuram Petla under the production of Dil Raju, the film 'Family Star' is scheduled for release in just two days (April 5). The successful duo of Vijay and Parasuram, known for their hit 'Geetha Govindam', has sparked considerable anticipation. Having recently cleared its censor formalities, the film has also made a notable impact with its pre-release business. Here are the details. How Much is the Pre-Release Business? 'Family Star,' eagerly awaited by audiences, has performed impressively in its pre-release business, securing a total of Rs. 43 crores for its worldwide theatrical rights. Breakdown by regions shows that in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana together, the film garnered Rs. 34.50 crores—specifically, Rs. 13 crores from Telangana (Nizam), Rs. 4.5 crores from Rayalaseema (Ceded), and Rs. 17 crores from AP. Moreover, the combined sales from Karnataka and the rest of India stood at Rs. 3 crores, while the overseas market contributed Rs. 5.5 crores. This accumulation of Rs.43 crores, as reported by trade analysts, sets the film's break-even target at Rs.44 crores. Censor Board's Jolt! 'Family Star' has recently completed its censor formalities. The censor board issued a U/A certificate and fixed the run time at 2 hours and 43 minutes. However, it's reported that the board suggested muting four dialogues in the movie. It's understood that there are no deleted scenes in the movie, but during a song featuring liquor bottles, the labels were asked to be blurred out by the censor board. Apart from these, there are no significant objectionable scenes in the film. Tough Competition from These Films! Despite being a star hero’s film, 'Family Star' faces stiff competition from two movies. One is 'Tillu Square', and the other is the Malayalam blockbuster 'Manjummel Boys'. 'Tillu Square', released last Friday, is running successfully with super hit talk and is expected to continue drawing good collections into the weekend. It has a good chance of receiving favorable audience response in its second week as well. On the other hand, 'Manjummel Boys', which stood as an industry hit in Malayalam, is releasing on April 6. Telugu audiences are eagerly waiting to watch this movie, which created minted collections. It will be interesting to see how 'Family Star' performs against these two contenders.

    Summer Movies 2024: ‘Family Star’, ‘Tillu Square’ will be the hits in summer 2024?
    Summer Movies 2024: ‘Family Star’, ‘Tillu Square’ will be the hits in summer 2024?
    The summer season following Sankranti is typically a lucrative period for the film industry, largely because schools and colleges are on holiday, increasing the likelihood of families, particularly those with young children and teenagers, seeking entertainment through movies. Consequently, films featuring major stars are often slated for release during this time to capitalize on the increased audience. However, the summer of 2024 marks a departure from this trend, with no blockbuster releases from star heroes on the horizon. Plans for launching films such as ‘Devara’ and ‘Kalki 2898 AD’ during this season fell through. As a result, the industry pins its hopes on the releases of two films led by rising stars. Should these movies resonate with audiences, they have the potential to generate substantial box office revenue. Let's explore which films are poised to make an impact this summer. Summer Belongs to These Movies! The films 'Tillu Square' and 'Family Star' are garnering significant interest as the most anticipated releases of the season. 'Tillu Square' features Siddu Jonnalagadda and Anupama Parameswaran in leading roles and is scheduled for a theatrical release on March 29. Following closely, 'Family Star' will make its debut on April 5, starring Vijay Devarakonda and Mrunal Thakur. With a notable absence of other major star-led films this summer, the spotlight is firmly on these two movies. 'Tillu Square' and 'Family Star' are specifically aimed at captivating the youth audience, particularly during the summer when students are on vacation. Film analysts predict that if these movies perform well upon their release, the box office collections could be impressive. The potential for these films to seize this golden opportunity is a subject of much anticipation. 'Family Star' is directed by Parashuram Petla, while Mallik Ram takes the helm for 'Tillu Square'. The industry awaits to see how these films will fare in this favorable season. Will the Hit Combo give success? Before ‘Tillu Square’, the combo of Siddu Jonnalagadda and director Mallik Ram in ‘DJ Tillu’ achieved blockbuster success. Siddu, in particular, won audiences over with his performance and dialogues, charming them with his unique comedy timing. ‘DJ Tillu’ stands as the biggest hit in Siddu’s career. On the other hand, the previous collaboration between director Parasuram Petla and actor Vijay Devarakonda, ‘Geetha Govindam’, was a grand success. The movie, starring Rashmika Mandanna as the heroine, immensely attracted family audiences. Thus, fans are confident that ‘Tillu Square’ and ‘Family Star’ under these super hit combinations will also be successful. Will Suhas be lucky a third time? Actor Suhas, who started his career as a comedian and proved himself as a hero, hit a chord with the audience recently with ‘Ambajipeta Marriage Band’. He is now coming with a movie titled ‘Prasanna Vadanam’, directed by Arjun Vaikke, which is set to release in theaters on May 3. The movie stars Payal Radhakrishna and Raashi Singh as heroines. The teaser of this movie has already been released and received a good response from the audience, creating buzz.

    Why Are Trolls Targeting the 'Family Star'?
    Why Are Trolls Targeting the 'Family Star'?
    Vijay Deverakonda's latest movie 'Family Star' was released last Friday and received mixed reactions. Despite high expectations set by the trailer and teaser, and innovative promotions by the movie team, there was a sudden surge in trolls and negativity post-release. The film was subject to trolling on social media on a large scale, with criticisms questioning the film's quality. While some viewers insist that 'Family Star' is excellent, especially appealing to family audiences, the internet is rife with negativity. This raises the question: What is the source of this negativity? Is someone deliberately spreading negativity about this film? Let's explore in this special report. What Is the Audience Saying? Those who have seen 'Family Star' claim it's very good. Particularly, family audiences are praising the movie, confused about the reason behind the extensive trolling and negativity online. Some young viewers mentioned that 'Family Star' is not just average but a film worth watching multiple times. https://twitter.com/cult1_rowdy/status/1776852998855262234 https://twitter.com/i/status/1776636730034245707 https://twitter.com/plaasya/status/1777072948597428600 Did Vijay Know in Advance? A video of two YouTube reviewers discussing 'Family Star' is trending among Vijay's fans. In it, one reviewer mentioned that there's no hate for 'Family Star' itself but there's significant opposition towards Vijay Deverakonda. The reviewer revealed that Vijay had discussed this with producer Dil Raju, saying, "A certain batch gets ready if I do a movie. Are you prepared for it?" highlighting the existence of groups ready to target his films. This surprised even Dil Raju. The video has gone viral on social media. https://twitter.com/chanticomrade_/status/1776839226312753263 Why Target Vijay? From the beginning, Vijay Deverakonda has faced a significant amount of opposition on social media. His rapid rise to stardom, without a film background, has not gone well with some fans of other stars. Vijay's straightforward behavior, his way of promoting movies, and his candid responses in interviews have also not been well-received by everyone. There have been multiple instances of his clips being posted on social media for the purpose of trolling. Whatever the reason, every time a Vijay Deverakonda film is released, efforts are made to target it. However, this time, 'Family Star' seems to be facing not just negativity towards Vijay but also towards producer Dil Raju and director Parasuram, which is why even a well-received film is encountering such levels of trolling and negativity. Negativity Towards Dil Raju Since the last Sankranti, there has been a troll campaign against Dil Raju. He released 'Varasudu' starring Tamil star Vijay during last year's Sankranti, which some didn't like as it competed with Chiru's (Waltair Veerayya) and Balayya's (Veer Simha Reddy). Criticisms also emerged regarding 'Hanuman' this Sankranti, with claims circulating on social media that Dil Raju indirectly suggested 'Hanuman' should step back. Director Parasuram, after 'Geetha Govindam' with Vijay, was supposed to make another film with Geetha Arts. However, suddenly making 'Family Star' under Dil Raju's production also contributed to the negativity against him. The opposition towards these three individuals seems to be the reason for the extensive trolling and negativity surrounding 'Family Star', as analyzed by cine circles. Fake Reviews Certain YouTube channels and PR teams started spreading negativity from the day of the film's release, stating the film was not good and making harsh trolls. This influenced the audience and significantly impacted the movie's collections. However, in America and other countries, the film is making a substantial box office impact, collecting over 500K dollars in three days. Trolls Before Release! Trolls against 'Family Star' began even before it hit the theaters. Some targeted the movie right after the trailer release, criticizing the depiction of a middle-class family hero in rich costumes and branded shoes. During a media event, some journalists questioned this, and producer Dil Raju strongly countered, asking, "Doesn’t a hero do heroics? In real life, can we beat 20 people like in action movies? Those are blockbusters because they are movies. Why nitpick over such details?"  'Trying to Kill a Good Movie' To counter the negativity, producer Dil Raju personally interacted with the audience at a theater, asking their opinions. A video of this is currently circulating on the internet. An audience member expressed to Dil Raju that they really liked the movie and felt that there was an effort to kill even a good movie, suggesting action should be taken against those giving negative reviews. Responding, Dil Raju mentioned that in Kerala, it's ordered by the court not to give reviews for the first three days after a movie's release, suggesting something similar would benefit the industry here. "We made a good film. If you didn’t like it, say you didn’t, but don’t push your opinions onto the audience," he remarked, indicating his frustration with the practice of giving prejudiced reviews. https://telugu.yousay.tv/en/family-star-first-review-vijay-shines-as-a-middle-class-boy.html

    Exclusive: The Rise of Telugu Cinema's stars: Actors Who Achieved Stardom Through Talent and Determination
    Exclusive: The Rise of Telugu Cinema's stars: Actors Who Achieved Stardom Through Talent and Determination
    The Telugu industry is replete with numerous heroes. Offspring from illustrious star families and children of directors and producers have made their mark as heroes. Nonetheless, some individuals have ascended to stardom in Tollywood without any prior industry connections, winning over Telugu audiences through their exceptional acting prowess. These young heroes demonstrate that with dedication and persistence, anyone can climb the ladder of success in the industry. Who are these self-made heroes? How did they begin their cinematic journey? What films propelled them to stardom? Let's delve into these questions in this special feature. Nani When you think of a self-made hero of this generation, Nani often stands out. He began his career behind the scenes as an assistant director and first gained attention as a leading man in "Ashta Chamma". Nani's captivating performances in films such as "Bheemili Kabaddi Jattu", "Ala Modalaindi", "Pilla Zamindar", "Eega", "Yeto Vellipoyindi Manasu", "Bhale Bhale Magadivoy", "Nenu Local", "Jersey", "Shyam Singha Roy", and "Dasara" have solidified his status as a star. His latest film, "Hi Nanna", Saripodhaa Sanivaaram is scheduled for release on August 29th. Vijay Devarakonda Young hero Vijay Devarakonda faced numerous challenges early in his career, often playing supporting roles while waiting for the right opportunities. He entered the industry with "Nuvvila" and appeared in minor roles in "Life is Beautiful" and "Yevade Subramanyam". His career took a significant turn with Tharun Bhascker’s "Pelli Choopulu", marking his establishment as a lead actor. Vijay then became an overnight sensation with Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s "Arjun Reddy", quickly gaining a massive youth following. "Geetha Govindam" expanded his appeal to family audiences, and his recent film "Family Star" further solidified his status in Telugu cinema. Siddhu Jonnalagadda Born and raised in Hyderabad, young hero Siddhu Jonnalagadda entered the industry driven by his passion for acting. He started with small roles in films like "Josh", "Orange'', and "Bheemili Kabaddi Jattu", without gaining much recognition initially. However, his transition to a leading actor began with Praveen Sattaru’s "LBW". "Guntur Talkies' ' later helped him gain more recognition as a lead actor. Despite intermittent successes, it wasn't until the 2022 hit "DJ Tillu'' that Siddhu's career truly soared, establishing him as a star. The success of its sequel, "Tillu Square'', further cemented his status, with box office earnings exceeding 100 crores, leading to plans for "Tillu Cube". Naveen Polishetty Naveen Polishetty, another self-made star, faced numerous challenges with minor roles at the beginning of his career. He was introduced to the industry in Shekar Kammula's "Life is Beautiful". Despite his involvement in films like "D for Dopidi" and "1: Nenokkadine", widespread recognition was slow to come. His breakthrough came with the 2019 hit "Agent Sai Srinivasa Athreya", which propelled his name throughout the industry. His role in "Jathi Ratnalu" significantly boosted his popularity, and his recent film "Miss Shetty Mr. Polishetty" alongside star actress Anushka was also a success, solidifying Naveen as a dependable leading actor in Tollywood. Teja Sajja Young hero Teja Sajja, originally a beloved child actor, captivated Telugu audiences in films alongside stars such as Chiranjeevi, Mahesh Babu, Venkatesh, and Jr. NTR. He made his debut as a lead actor with the 2019 hit "Zombie Reddy", which was a significant success. His following films, "Ishq" and "Adbhutham", also received positive responses. Recently, Teja starred in the Pan-India film "Hanu man", directed by Prashanth Varma, which garnered substantial attention, particularly in northern India, significantly boosting his popularity. He is currently working on "Super Yodha", continuing his upward trajectory in the film industry. Adivi Sesh Star hero Adivi Sesh, without any industry background, first appeared as a hero in "Karma" and quickly garnered recognition. He played supporting roles in films like "Panja", "Balupu", "Run Raja Run", "Baahubali", and "Ami Thumi". His career trajectory changed with the spy thriller "Goodachari", which was a hit with Telugu audiences.

    Vijay Deverakonda: A Film with Prashanth Neel?
    Vijay Deverakonda: A Film with Prashanth Neel?
    Recently, young star Vijay Deverakonda has been facing challenges in achieving notable success. His most recent movie, 'Family Star,' did not perform well at the box office, heightening his anticipation for a significant breakthrough in his career. Currently, he is fully focused on an upcoming romantic entertainer directed by Gowtam Tinnanuri. Amidst these developments, his meeting with Prashanth Neel, the acclaimed director behind blockbusters like 'Salaar' and 'KGF', has stirred significant buzz in the industry. This has sparked widespread speculation about a potential collaboration between them on a new film. Why They Met! Director Prashanth Neel recently visited Vijay Deverakonda at his home in Filmnagar, Hyderabad, sparking rumors of a potential movie collaboration. This visit comes at a time when Vijay has been experiencing a string of unsuccessful films, and rumors are circulating that he might work with a high-profile director like Prashanth Neel. There is strong speculation in Tollywood that Vijay could appear in a guest role in 'Salaar 2'. It's believed that Prashanth Neel's visit was to discuss this critical role, which would be pivotal in the climax of 'Salaar 2'. However, official confirmation from the film's team is still pending. Vijay's Career in Trouble! Vijay Deverakonda's recent films—'Liger', 'Kushi', and 'Family Star'—have not succeeded at the box office. Notably, 'Liger', which was released two years ago, resulted in substantial financial losses, and the more recent 'Family Star' also failed to achieve its revenue goals, leading to considerable losses for producer Dil Raju. Even Parasuram, who previously delivered a hit with Vijay through 'Geetha Govindam', was unable to reverse this trend. Industry insiders now believe that Vijay urgently needs a blockbuster to sustain his career, warning that another failure could significantly impact his standing in the industry. Will Vijay Break the Jinx? Vijay's upcoming film 'VD12' will be directed by Gowtam Tinnanuri and produced by Sitara Entertainments, aiming for a Pan-India release.

Her recent success in 'Premalu', both domestically and internationally, has heightened her profile significantly. The movie, featuring a new love story and marking the first on-screen collaboration between Vijay and Mamita, has generated positive expectations from the production team. The industry is now watching to see if Mamita, the rising star from Kerala, can turn around Vijay’s recent series of unsuccessful films.

    Venkatesh's Second Daughter's Wedding-Photos Go Viral!
    Victory Venkatesh, one of Tollywood's leading actors known for his roles in family dramas, has earned the title of a "Family Star." Recently, he delighted Telugu audiences with his performance in "Saindhav." Meanwhile, on Friday, Venkatesh's second daughter, Hayavahini, had a grand wedding ceremony. The event, held at the Ramanaidu Studios, was attended by several celebrities, and photos related to the wedding have been circulating widely on social media. Let's take a look. It is known that last year, the hero Venkatesh and Neeraja’s second daughter, Hayavahini, got engaged to Dr. Nishanth from Vijayawada. However, the Daggubati family had not announced when the wedding would take place. But yesterday, they quietly held the ceremony, surprising everyone. The event was conducted very simply, without any fuss. Last year witnessed the engagement of Hayavahini, the second daughter of Venkatesh and Neeraja, to Dr. Nishanth from Vijayawada. Although the Daggubati family hadn't disclosed the wedding date, they surprised everyone by quietly hosting the ceremony. The affair was gracefully executed, devoid of any extravagance or commotion. The wedding took place on Friday night at 9:36 PM. Only family members and a few celebrities from the film industry attended the ceremony. The release of the photos from the event has brought joy to Venkatesh's fans. Superstar Mahesh Babu's wife, Namrata, and daughter, Sitara, attended the wedding ceremony. A photo of Namrata with the bride and groom is trending on the internet. Tamil star hero Karthik was the main attraction at the wedding ceremony. Karthik and Venkatesh greeted each other warmly, and you can see the photos related to this here. https://twitter.com/yousaytv/status/1717459822881509489 Last October, Hayavahini got engaged to Dr. Nishanth from Vijayawada. Megastar Chiranjeevi and Superstar Mahesh Babu were among the stars who attended the engagement ceremony. Regarding Venkatesh's Films: Venkatesh's recent  movie "Saindhav" was not a great success. But recent news that the movie "Drushyam," in which Venkatesh starred, is being remade in Hollywood has excited his fans.. Before this, Venkatesh entertained the audience with "F3," which is a sequel to "F2." Before "F3," he appeared in films like "Narappa" and "Drushyam 2," which were directly released on OTT platforms and received good reception. Venkatesh also starred alongside his nephew Rana in a web series named "Rana Naidu." Sporting a salt and pepper appearance, Venkatesh portrayed a character divergent from his usual roles, marked by a more intense portrayal and an increased use of profanity. This departure from his typical image garnered some criticism. The web series "Rana Naidu" was directed by Suparn Verma and Karan Anshuman, who have worked on series like "Mirzapur" and "The Family Man." The team has announced that a second season is also on its way.

    Amidst a Series of Flops, Vijay Devarakonda Takes a Bold Step for His Upcoming Film.
    Amidst a Series of Flops, Vijay Devarakonda Takes a Bold Step for His Upcoming Film.
    Vijay Devarakonda is one of Tollywood's popular young heroes, loved by fans regardless of his ups and downs. However, he has been facing a tough time with no significant hits recently. His last three films did not perform well at the box office, making his upcoming movie crucial for his career. Vijay is set to work under the direction of Gowtam Naidu Tinnanuri. A sensational update about this film has surprised fans, who are excited about Vijay's bold decision. What's the daring decision? The upcoming 'VD12', a collaboration between Vijay Devarakonda and Gowtam Naidu Tinnanuri, will be an action drama. Following the box office failures of his recent movies 'Liger', 'Kushi', and 'Family Star', Vijay is completely focused on making 'VD12' a success. He is determined to achieve a blockbuster hit and is reportedly working hard to ensure it. According to the latest buzz, Vijay has made a daring decision for this film and he has agreed to act without a single song in the movie. Why no songs? Vijay Devarakonda's films are known for their hit soundtracks, typically featuring at least two or three chart-topping songs per movie. Thus, the decision to have no songs in 'VD12' has come as a shock to everyone. However, there's a strong reason behind this decision that is currently being discussed in Tollywood circles. For the first time, Vijay will portray a police officer in this film. Director Gowtam believes that including songs would disrupt the narrative and overall tone of the movie. Hence, they have decided to complete the project without any songs. Vijay has agreed to this approach. Notably, the film 'Kaithi', which also had no songs, was a previous success. 'VD12' following this model is noteworthy. The burden on Anirudh! For 'VD12', music sensation Anirudh will handle the music. Anirudh's songs and scores are highly popular among audiences. Director Gowtam Tinnanuri believes that Anirudh's music alone will elevate the film to another level. The team is confident that Anirudh's background score will be a highlight of the movie. It remains to be seen if this experimental approach will contribute to the success of Vijay's film. The movie, produced by Sithara Entertainments, boasts a significant budget. Kerala Beauty as Heroine! Capturing young hearts with her performance in the film 'Premalu,' Malayali beauty Mamita Baiju is set to star as the heroine in 'VD12'. Initially, Sreeleela was selected for this role, but due to certain reasons, the makers have decided to cast Mamita instead. An official announcement regarding this change is expected soon. 'VD12' is being produced as a Pan-India film, aiming to appeal across various language regions. Vijay Devarakonda already enjoys a significant following in Telugu, Tamil, and Kannada. The makers believe that Mamita Baiju's popularity will help make the film accessible to Malayalam and North Indian audiences as well, while her international following is anticipated to provide an additional boost to the movie.

Following the blockbuster hit 'Baby,' high expectations are set for this new venture from Anand Deverakonda. The movie's trailer has already garnered significant attention among the youth.

Movie Plot Ganesh (Anand Deverakonda) commits small thefts with his friend Shankar (Emmanuel). Due to unexpected events, Ganesh finds himself needing to pull off a major heist. However, their plan goes awry, leading to new troubles for Ganesh. Meanwhile, political parties are fiercely competing in the Nandyal by-elections, and a brutal gang shootout occurs in Mumbai.
