  • Khushbu Defends Ravichandran From Stray Aspersions 

    khushbhu defends ravichandran from stray aspersions

    Actress-politician Khushbu has defended Ravichandran from a random troll who tried to cast aspersions on him. The general comment on the #MeToo campaign threatened to turn into a controversy over Sandalwood star Ravichandran but Khushbu defended him saying he was a great human being who helped those in need and that was the only way "he has spared no one". 

    About the #MeToo issue Khushbu remarked that she never had such an experience (of harassment) in her career. She said "Many ask if I have ever faced #metoo moment in my career spanning 40yrs in films..sorry to disappoint you but I haven’t..I was always taught to fight my own battles and hit back hard..and I did just that.."

    Replying to this a Twitter user calling herself Lakshmi replied "I don't think so... I think u may faced Actor Ravichandran he don't spare anyone at all as u can guess how he was.." The comment was meant to suggest that Ravichandran was a kind of person who would have harassed women. 

    Khushbu replied with her own example defending Ravichandran and said it was wrong to make such fake allegations against the Kannada actor. She said "If my mother is alive today, it is because of V.Ravichandran and his great father Late.N.Veeraswamy.. ‘he spares no one’ should be counted as he has always been a silent philanthropist and a wonderful soul who has been a true friend to many out there..so never speak ill of him."

    Despite this the troll Lakshmi contained to abuse the actor by saying "I know well about thr father he was great but Ravichandran not sure ! I wonder how his sons born opposite to him."

    Upset with this continued harassment by the Twitter user an angry Khushbu said "Were you part of the so called ‘he spares no one’ ?? Shame on you..Sadly hearsay is what educated illiterates like you jump just to be there in wave for the heck of it..you are an insult to the women who are fighting out there.."

    The troll continued making insinuations against Ravichandran even dragging the case of actress Bindiya. Khushbu remarked "I ask again.. he w well do you know him?? Or are you a victim here?? If not, stop maligning a person.. don’t speak to gain publicity ..it degrades other women out here who fighting it out.." ending the conversation.

  • Krishna Ravichandran Stops Eating Meat

    ravichandran stops eating meat

    Crazy Star Ravichandran has stopped eating meat for the last three months. Coincidentally he will be playing the role of Lord Krishna in the Naganna directed Kurukshetra. In this Darshan's 50th film, Darshan is playing Duryodhana and the casting for the rest of the roles is underway.

    Ravichandran was one of the first stars to accept to play in the film. His role is that of Krishna. But Ravichandran quitting eating meat has nothing to do with the role. He had quit it for two months for health reasons before the role was offered to him. So he decided to continue not eating meat till he completed the film.

    Ravichandran has never acted in a historical or a mythological film before and this will be his first such attempt. He has also never shaved his mustache for a film in his entire career. Actors like Ambareesh, Ramesh Aravind and Upendra have shaved their moustaches for films but never Ravichandran. For the role of Krishna he will shave his moustache and he has agreed to it.

  • Paddehuli Review: Chitraloka Rating 4/ 5*

    paddehuli movie review

    Debutant Shreyas, son of noted Kannada film producer K Manju, opens his account with an apt commercial entertainer which caters to both mass and the class audience. Director Guru Deshpande returns with a tailor made youthful subject for the first time hero pegged with an inspiring tale of an aspiring musician.

    Unlike the regular starry launch, the maker has kept it simple, delivering justice to crucial aspects in a film, which is story and the making along with appealing performances.

    What makes Paddehuli as a winner is its honesty in giving importance to every department rather turning it into a complete one man show. It has a decent story with a meaningful message to the youngsters, who set out to achieve their dreams against all odds in life.

    Crazy Star V. Ravichandran adds greater value to the script as a father. His character as a Kannada lecturer instills faith and determination in the protagonist's mind when he takes an important decision to fulfil his dreams to become a successful musician.

    In the meanwhile, the film also delivers in terms of entertainment, from rib-tickling humour set in college, to romance, emotional drama and a bits of action in between the path towards protagonist's journey as an aspiring musician.

    The other significant part of Paddehuli, is its content highlighting Kannada language and its rich literature right throughout the movie. In fact, it is the base of this musical saga. The works of popular Kannada writers and the immense treasure of folklore is put to perfect use including the music composed by Ajaneesh Lokanath.

    That's not all, Guru Deshpande has presented this one with some real special surprises right from Sahasa Simha Dr. Vishnuvardhan who inspires yet another debutant, as the first part of the film is set in Chitradurga. That apart, it is also a treat for power star Puneeth Rajkumar and Rakshit Shetty fans who play an inspiring role in it.

    Insofar Shreyas is concerned, he delivers a power packed performance, and is definitely a talent to watch out for. Nishvika Naidu does a beautiful job as a lover and the rest fits the bill as Paddehuli roars loud with well-balanced entertainment for all.
