Many people don't believe in numerology. But the craze of our film people for
numerology is very strong. The range of their craze makes us also tend towards
the science of numbers.
Many examples come readily to our mind. Many cine people who have changed their
names according to numerology have turned their lives into successful ones. One
person entered into the tinsel world with the name, Praveen Gandhi. When his
film 'Ratchagan' flopped, he chose to change his name into Praveen Kanth.
Now, his name is one those which are widely talked about among the film
personalities of Chennai.
Rasika came to feel that it was her name 'Rasika' which proved a hurdle
to her, despite her beauty. She promptly changed her name into Sangeetha. What a
wonder! Now she can't stay in her house at all. Opportunities are pouring in now
for her, both from Tamil and Telugu film industries.
Same is the story with Director Shakthi Chidambaram . It was he who wrote
the dialogues for the films Kottai Vaasal and Padhavi Pramanam, with the name,
Dinakar. As Dinakar, he had directed the film, 'Samrat' too. All his
ventures failed, one by one. With his change of name as Shakti Chidambaram, he
directed the film, 'Ennamma Kannu'. That film was a thumping success. The
film catapulted the name and fame of Sathyaraj to great heights.
The Circle is Completed
For many years, S.A.Chandrasekar has been making films on themes like
romance, action and comedy. But nothing clicked. Success was hard to come by.
After consulting his friends he has now returned back to his pet theme, law,
which has earned him laurels at the beginning of his film life.
Hitherto, he was busily engaged in the construction of a Three Star Hotel, which
he was building for his son Vijay , now he has diverted his attention in
full on the making of his new film. As the film would be based on the theme
'law', he has frequent meetings with law expert.
He has selected Sarathkumar as the hero for that film, as it requires a
fiery person who can deliver his dialogues with all force at one's command. The
name of the movie is 'Dhosi'.
The Winner takes all!
reached the number one spot among the Tamil film heroines. But she is not
willing to rest on her oars. She has determined to eliminate Simran totally
from the competition.
It was Simran who was looked first for 'Thenali' . But the tremendous
success of 'Kushi' and the intervention of Jothika spoiled the chance of
Simran. Simran was looked alongside Prashanth for the film, 'Star'.
Even the posters have been printed. The filming of the movie got delayed because
of the bickering in between Prashanth and Praveen Kanth. Jothika found the
breathing time to poke her nose now. She could once again dethrone Simran and
usurp the big chair form her. Thus, she became the star of the 'Star'.
If you want the call sheets of Jothika, you should go straight to her and
tell that you have come to book her instead of Simran. This lie would do the
trick. She would immediately start noting down the details about the
movie,which you are planning to make.
All this in all seriousness!
Read in between the lines
Divya Unni have come form kerala. They were found in deep conversation
during a recent function. Some close friends of Divya Unni from the film world
enquired her about the content of their conversation. Plain spoken, as she is,
Divya Unni, unwittingly revealed the secrets they exchanged. "Akka is
very good. She explained in detail the reason for the failure of my film. She
advised me to act glamorously in my future films as it won't do in Tamil films
if you hesitate to bare your body little". The friends were shocked to
"Don't pay head to her words. Presently, you are giving stiff competition
to Devayani. In as much as she wants to eliminate you from the scene, she has
ill advised you. Don't follow her advice, for heaven's sake. You won't be
received well as a glamour queen. Only family roles would suit you. Your face
and physical structure will let you down if you try to make a mark as a sex
A nice advice indeed! Friends are for keeps no doubt.

Meena's eye donation
In recent times,
rumours have caused great pain to Meena . But now two things have
gladdened the hearts of her, her family members and her fans. The accolades
earned by her for her excellent performance in 'Rhythm' have given
jubilation to her. Furthermore, she has come forward to donate her eyes. This is
a laudable thing. People talk high of her, because of her helping tendency.
The eyes of Meena were certaining her plus points. Leave alone her fans. Her
eyes make the other actresses to grow green with entry. When she returned from
London where she celebrated her recent birthday, she went straight to Shankar
Netralaya to donate her eyes.
The following is her opinion in this regard. "My eyes are beautiful. They
should be useful for others too. I have my predecessors in this respect, in the
cine field itself. Rajini Kanth, Kamal Hasan, Aishwarya Rai and the all have
already announced about the donation of their eyes Parthiban and Seetha have
gone one step further. They have, in fact, donated their whole bodies. First I
thought to keep this matter as a secret. But on second thought, it struck me
that some more people may come forward to make such donations taking due from
The Vivacious heroine certainly has set a good example.
