 Want daughter to focus on education for now: Sridevi


Actress Sridevi has refuted rumours about her daughter Jhanvi Kapoor’s cinematic debut with Malayalam heartthrob Dulquer Salmaan, and added that she wants Jhanvi to focus on education for now.

The rumoured project was to be directed by K.V. Vijayendra Prasad, the writer behind Baahubali and Bajrangi Bhaijaan.

“She (Jhanvi) has just completed graduation. Her focus should be on education now. Contrary to reports, she hasn’t signed any film yet. She’s young and it’s too early for her to think about acting,” Sridevi told IANS.

She also added that destiny will decide the course of her daughter’s career.

“If it has to happen, she will enter films. I never planned to be an actress,” she said.

Sridevi is looking forward to the release of her comeback Tamil film Puli, which releases worldwide on October 1 in Hindi as well as Telugu.

Long-drawn affair



To divert sewage from Hussainsagar lake, as part of project funded by the Japanese International Cooperation Agency (JICA), the HMWSSB took up pipe-laying works.


After missing multiple deadlines and half-year’s delay in execution, pipe-laying works on the key Tadbund road connecting the city to its suburbs and also onto the national highway may end this month.

As part of a bigger project to divert sewage from Hussainsagar lake, funded by the Japanese International Cooperation Agency (JICA), the Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board (HMWSSB) took up pipe-laying works on the stretch to combine four main nalas or storm water drains flowing from the Secunderabad Cantonment into Hussainsagar and divert them.

The works began in March this year with a slated two-month deadline, but have not been completed until today.

This has left businesses in the area reeling under loss as traffic operation is one-way and parking along the road is nearly impossible due to the work paraphernalia.

“For six months now, we have been facing 40 per cent loss. Before the work commenced, we were told it would be completed in 45 days. It now looks like the work will go on for another half year,” said Hameed Dashti, who owns a restaurant and café in the area.

To facilitate pipe-laying works, traffic police diverted vehicles coming from Bowenpally towards Sikh Village, making the Tadbund stretch adjoining old Begumpet airport boundary wall, one way. During peak hours, the traffic movement on the stretch is reduced to a crawl as pipe-laying has taken up half the road.

Sources in the Secunderabad Cantonment Board (SCB), which administers the area, claimed regular communication with the water board to hasten work progress has been unyielding.

However, water board officials overseeing the project assured completion of works by the end of this month, adding that only gaps in the pipeline totalling around 200 meters have to be completed. “Much of the pipeline work is done. We encountered rock while digging, but could not use explosives to blast it. This has added to the work duration,” a senior HMWSSB official said.



This has to be the biggest news for all the Bahubali fans out there that have been desperately waiting for the release of Bahubali 2. The much kept secret behind the Why kattappa killed Bahubali  in the first part of SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus epic drama Bahubali: The Beginning was leaked on the messaging app WhatsApp. The main plot of the second part of Bahubali movie Bahubali: The Conclusion has gone viral with the ardent fans sharing the apparent storyline of Prabhas, Tamannaah, Anushka Shetty, Rana Daggubati and Sathyaraj starrer.

According to message doing circles on WhatsApp about the story of Bahubali 2, Kattappa (played by Sathyaraj) is loyal army chief of Mahishmati kingdom. Kattappa’s ancestors have sworn to obey the orders of the Mahishpati king. Not just Kattappa (Sathyaraj), but everyone born in this kingdom be it his ancestors or the generations that would follow are meant to serve the Mahishmati royals.

Once Bahubali becomes the emperor of the kingdom, he falls in love with certain Devasena(played by Anushka Shetty). The twist in the tale is that Bhallala Deva (played by Rana Daggubati) is also in love with Devasena. According to the instructions of Rajmata Shivagami (played by Ramya Krishnan), whoever marries Devasena will have to leave the empire and will be exiled.Bahubali agrees to this condition and decides to marry Devasena and leave Mahishmati kingdom.

Why Bhahubali

Once Bahubali departs the kingdom, it comes under the attack of son of Kalakeya King, which forces Bahubali to return Mahishmati and save his kingdom. This drastic change of scenario sparks fear in Bhallala Deva, who thinks Rajmata will give reins back to Bahubali. Then, Bhallala Deva orders Kattappa to kill Bahubali. Kattappa, who is under the oath of obeying the king’s order does what is told.

Well, this story line looks quite viable but it has to be seen if the makers actually present it when Bahubali: The Conclusion hits theaters in early 2016. In the modern period of Indian cinema, there have only been handful of movies that have got the audiences hooked up to it much after they have left the theaters. In the age where the success of movies is measured through the crore clubs it enters as opposed to longevity, as was it the times  gone by, Bahubali has managed to strike the right chords of its audiences and weaved magic with its story and visual effects.
