I am a Hindi-speaking boy, I am very fluent in the language. But, of course, I have worked a lot in South Cinema. So, every time I come to Hindi, it is like a hobby, and I come to it when I find something very interesting. I am glad that Siddharth thought of me for this role because it is not a conventional role. It is unlike anything I have attempted. I act till I get to do something different, otherwise I will do some other job.”

Kajal wrote that their lives are going to change with the arrival of a baby, but she will continue to love him. “Our lives are going to change drastically, and I’m so grateful for that. We won’t have all the alone time we have now- we won’t be able to go to the movies every weekend, or lay around and sleep + binge watch shows, we probably won’t go out impromptu partying for a while or have as many date nights BUT we will have a beautiful baby that will fill our hearts with so much joy. There will be sleepless nights, times we feel sick, times we aren’t feeling ourselves, but this will also be the best time of our life. Things will change but one thing will stay the same and that is how much I love you! I’m blessed to have you by my side for our greatest adventure yet. You are going to be the most terrific father and I love the life we live,” she concluded.

The film has Dhanush in a dual role, and the story delves into two look-alikes. We hear the post-production work has begun and the team is working in full swing to bring the film to theatres soon.

Prabhu Joins The Cast Of Dhanush, Selvaraghavan’s ‘Naane Varuven’

Dhanush who was last seen in ‘Maaran’ is currently shooting for ‘Vaathi’ – a Tamil Telugu bilingual which is directed by Venky Atluri. He is also simultaneously shooting for the Tamil film ‘Naane Varuven’, directed by Selvaraghavan. ‘Naane Varuven’ is the film which will see brothers reuniting nearly after a decade. They last worked together for ‘Mayakkam Enna’.

According to news reports, actor Prabhu has joined the cast of ‘Naane Varuven’ now. Reports suggest that he has shot for his portions in the movie and the shooting schedule is on its final leg. Reprotedly, Prabhu is said to have been playing an important role in the movie. Just a couple of days ago Elli AvrRam joined the case of ‘Naane Varuven’. The film features Dhanush and Indhuja Ravichandran in the lead roles. Apart from them, Selvaraghavan and Yogi Babu are also part of the movie cast.

Vijay Starrer ‘Beast’ Gets Record-Breaking Fan Shows In Kerala

Vijay has built his territory well with his back-to-back hits, and entertaining films. Vijay has a massive fan base in Kerala equal to a leading Malayalam actor in the state. Now, Vijay starrer has got a record-breaking fan show in Kerala. Vijay’s ‘Beast’ is prepared to hit the big screens on April 13 a day ahead of another Pan Indian release ‘KGF: Chapter 2’. ‘Beast’ distributors across regions have made the film occupy more screens on its opening day.

Meanwhile, the film will be having early morning fan shows in Kerala, and so far almost 350 shows have been arranged. But it is expected to get extended as the demand for the tickets is higher.

‘Beast’ has broken the record of ‘Bigil’ (307) to become the most number of fan shows for a Vijay film in Kerala.

Overall ‘Beast’ stands third for a film’s fans show count in Kerala, while the first two are Complete Actor Mohanlal’s ‘Marakkar’ and ‘Odiyan’. ‘Beast’ is releasing on a working day, and it’s going to be a tough battle for the film’s box office. But the demand and expectations for the film make it a grander one, and we can expect some change in box office stats.

‘Beast’ features Vijay and Pooja Hegde in lead roles, while the recently released trailer has revealed the film’s story, and it’s about a soldier’s mission to save hijacked people in a shopping mall. Anirudh Ravichander takes care of the music, while the cinematography is handled by Manoj Paramahamsa.

Vijay’s Film ‘Beast’ Banned In Kuwait

New Delhi [India], April 6 (ANI): Tamil superstar Vijay’s highly anticipated movie ‘Beast’, slated for a worldwide release on April 23, suffered a huge blow as it got banned in Kuwait.

As reported by trade analyst Ramesh Bala, the film is banned by the Ministry of Information in Kuwait. Although the reasons are still unclear, it is speculated that the decision comes from the portrayal of Muslims in the film.
The film reportedly depicts Muslim characters as terrorists, which has been objected to by the Kuwait government. In a parallel narrative, it is also believed that the reason could be because of the movie’s anti-Pakistan sentiments.

‘Beast’, directed by Nelson Dilipkumar, is a hostage drama with Vijay playing the leading role.

However, this is not the first time that an Indian movie got banned in Kuwait. Earlier due to similar reasons, Dulquer Salmaan’s ‘Kurup’ and Vishnu Vishal’s ‘FIR’ too had been banned.

Interestingly, while the film has been banned in Kuwait, it has gotten clearance in the UAE and other Arab countries.

Tamil superstar Vijay has a humongous fan following in the middle-east, and the latest ban in Kuwait could in some way affect its worldwide box office collection.
