Actor Prakashraj to Play LTTE Chief?

prakashrajMultilingual actor Prakash Raj says he has been offered the role of LTTE chief Vellupillai Prabhakaran in a Tamil film and that he will be doing it.“I would like to perform the role according to the dictates of the script and requirement of the director. I will not do any homework or prepare for this role in details as I think spontaneity will provide better results than anything,” said the actor at an interactive session.

“Acting career is like a journey to me. Acting has been a process of learning to me. You learn many things while interacting with many people. I think any actor will gain confidence and maturity with experience. Working with different directors and the best of the actors make you determined to give the best shot,” he said. Prakash Raj also worked with Bollywood megastar Amithabh Bachchan in two Hindi films – “Khakee” and “Zamanat“ and is all praise for him.

“He is truly a legend. He is extremely patient. He used to call me ‘Kalaakar’ and I enjoyed working with him. Despite his stature, he doesn’t question the decision of a director. I saw him agreeing for the eighth take for director Raj Kumar Santhoshi while shooting for ‘Khakee‘. I was really impressed with his professionalism,” he said.

His film “Mozhi“ won many awards and was also a box office success. “I have made ten Tamil films so far. I would like to take up projects which have a good story. I want to encourage younger talents who want to prove their mettle with their stronger scripts with novelty elements. I’m happy that young directors like Priya, Guhan and Radha Mohan are established names today,” said Prakash Raj.

Mani Rathnam’s Film as Raavan or Ashokavanam?

manirathnamThe title for the film directed by Mani Rathnam and starred by Aishwarya Rai was in debate. As the shooting for Mani Rathnam’s next has been going on unhindered for the past few months, the media too has been busy updating every bit of news that was available about this high profile movie. While it has been called Ashokavanam by all sections of the media with the Hindi version being called Raavan, the makers of the bilingual are yet to make any official announcement regarding the title.

Ashokavanam, had come under the scanner because a similar title had been registered by Kasthuriraja. Now, a clear picture seems to be emerging. It seems that  Raavan will indeed be the title of the Hindi version, the Tamil title is yet to be finalized, probably due to the fact that there may be collisions as far as the title is concerned. So the title for tamil version of the film will also be Raavan instead of Ashokavanam!
