    four stars in one frame

    Prema Baraha, the film directed by Arjun Sarja that is releasing this week is set to create a unique record of sorts. Four top stars will be seen in a single frame in a song in the film. There have been several songs where other stars have made a special guest appearance.

    There have also been songs in which several stars make a special appearance but in different parts of the song. In the song for Prema Baraha apart from Arjun Sarja, his two nephews Chiranjeevi Sarja and Dhruva Sarja will be seen. But the biggest scoop is the appearance of Darshan in the same frame. This will be one of the most eagerly awaited shots in Kannada films so far.

    The reaction of the fans witnessing four stars in the same frame can only be imagined. It is just a wait of two more days.


  • Gym After Kurukshetra


    The shooting for Darshan's Kurukshetra is going on at  a very brisk pace in Hyderabad's Ramoji Studio. Sources say that the speed of shooting has surprised everyone. Some top actors from across India are participating in the shooting.

    Apart from Darshan playing the role of Duryodhana there are other actors including Ambareesh, Arjun Sarja, Sonu Sood and others who are in Hyderabad shooting for the 50th film of Darshan which is being made on a very big scale.

    But what are the actors doing when there is no shooting. Some of the Kannada actors like Chetan and Yashas are giving a glimpse into it. Most of the actors are spending most of their spare time in the gym! The film gets together some of the fittest actors who can stand up to anyone when it comes to having a fit and trim body.

    So no wonder that many of them are found in the gym rather than in any recreation area after shooting hours.

On Sunday night, many news channels had gathered near Darshan's house for the coverage of his birthday.

Just when everything was right, some of the fans attacked a news channel's crew who had gone to cover the birthday celebrations of the actor. They not only smashed the camera, but also damaged the OB van of ETV news.

    The news reporters however tried to contact Darshan, but their efforts went in vain as Darshan did not meet them as he was busy celebrating with his fans. When brought in to the notice on Monday morning, Darshan said that the news about his fans attacking the channel crew didn't come to his notice. Darshan even said that his fans might not have done like that.

    So, all the channels who very much upset about Darshan's remarks and behaviour decided to boycott the film's muhurath. So, 'Jaggu Dada' was launched without the presence of many news channels. How will Darshan react to this is yet to be seen in the coming days?
