The past week was a heavy-activity one with lots of changes, announcements and updates from the South Indian film industries. Makers of Saaho announced that the action-adventure film will now release on August 30 instead of August 15. In Tamil, Kamal Haasan revived his most ambitious project Thalaivan Irukkindraan which will have music by AR Rahman. And as good news, South actress Sruthi Hariharan announced her pregnancy by posting a picture. And a lot more happened down South this week. Kamal Haasan’s Thalaivan Irukkindraan to Sruthi Hariharan’s pregnancy, here’s how entertainment looked this week:

Saaho release date:

In a shocking move, makers of Saaho announced that the film will now release on August 30. This came after two Telugu films, Sharwanand’s Ranarangam and Adivi Sesh’s Evaru, announcing that their films will release on August 15. Also, Bollywood’s big projects, Akshay Kumar’s Mission Mangal and John Abraham’s Batla House, will also release on August 15. In light of these releases, the makers of Saaho decided to change their release date. However, the makers maintain that they want to deliver a quality product which will take a bit of time, and hence the change of release date.

Kamal Haasan’s Thalaivan Irukkindraan:

After much delay, Kamal Haasan’s Thalaivan Irukkindraan has now been revived for the third time. AR Rahman took to his Twitter page and made the announcement which was also corroborated by Kamal Haasan. The project was first announced in 2008 with actors like Mohanlal, Venkatesh and Kamal Haasan himself. However, it was placed on hold due to financial issues. Kamal decided to work on it again in 2015 and announced that it would be made in Bollywood too with Saif Ali Khan in the lead role. But nothing worked out there either. And now, Kamal confirms that it will go on floors soon. Thalaivan Irukkindraan will be produced by Lyca Productions and Raajkamal Films International jointly.

Bigg Boss Telugu 3:

In a shocking development, a complaint was filed against the makers of Bigg Boss Telugu in Hyderabad alleging harassment. Two women artists, Gayatri Gupta and Swetha Reddy, filed separate complaints against the makers of the show stating that they were asked to compromise for the show despite signing an agreement to take part in the third season of the show. The police officials are yet to take action on the complaints filed. Bigg Boss Telugu 3 is slated to begin on July 21 and will be hosted by Akkineni Nagarjuna.

Sruthi Hariharan:

The South Indian actress announced her pregnancy by posting a picture on her Instagram showing off her baby bump. Sruthi is married to Raam Kalaari and this will be their first baby. It is to be noted here that not many people knew that the Nibunan actress was married and this announcement of her pregnancy came as a shocker to many. Check out her post here:

Ajith-starrer Nerkonda Paarvai will now release on August 8 worldwide, announced the producer Bony Kapoor this week. Directed by H Vinoth, Nerkonda Paarvai is the official remake of Bollywood film Pink which starred Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu in lead roles. Fans of Thala Ajith are highly excited about the film and are looking forward to the release.
