Huge Costume Research For Chiru’s Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy April 28, 2017 17:00

Now that Mega Star, Chiranjeevi has taken up the story of Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy, his reins date the to mid 1800s, so the costumes are a tough task. Megastar’s 150th movie has come and gone, and now the focus is on the upcoming flick. Like Mega Power Star and Chiru’s son, Ram Charan already announced already, from August, the Mega Star’s 151st film, under Surender Reddy’s direction is going to be launched. Now, a new thing that is keeping the whole team on toes, is his costumes for the new movie. Earlier, Tollywood directors, like Gunasekhar and Krish opted for some historic look-laced costumes for their Rudramadevi and Gautamiputra Satakarni movies. As these stories date back to 600 years prior, anything that looked like a folklore costume suited them. The Britishers, by 1800, have already started ruling India and then we have many other European businessmen present here in the country selling their apparel. Dressing style and costume designs have got altered big time then. They have neither historical look nor the modern wear which are wearing now. To find out how the costumes should look like in this film, the director, Surender Reddy is said to be doing huge research. Despite roping in a couple of happening fashion designers, a look for the movie, has not finalized for the big Telugu pride, Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy.

Riding on Andrew Tye’s three-wicket haul and Aaron Finch’s whirlwind fifty, Gujarat Lions (GL) notched up a comfortable seven-wicket win over Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) to revive their IPL play-off hopes, at Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru on Thursday. Chasing 135 to win, Gujarat lost both openers - Ishan Kishan (16) and Brendon McCullum (3) - to be reduced to 23-2, but Finch blasted 5 fours and 6 sixes in his scintillating 34-ball 72-run innings as the visitors romped home with 6.1 overs to spare. Earlier right-arm seamer Tye returned with a three-wicket haul to trigger a top-order collapse as Royal Challengers Bangalore were bowled out for 134 by Gujarat Lions after electing to bowl in their eighth match of IPL 10. Tye, who had taken a hat-trick on IPL debut against Rising Pune Supergiant at Rajkot, struck twice in two balls and returned with figures of 4-0-12-3 to leave the hosts at 22-3 in the fifth over. Besides Tye, Ravindra Jadeja (2/28) snapped two wickets and Basil Thampi (1/34) and Ankit Soni (1/28) picked up one wicket each as Lions dished out a disciplined bowling performance.

TRS Proves Its Strength At State Public Meeting In Warangal April 28, 2017 10:35

On the occasion of the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) party’s 16th formation day, the party has once again proved its strength with a massive public meeting at Prakashreddypet in Warangal, yesterday. An estimated 15 lakh people had turned up for the public meeting. This is the first such public meeting the TRS has held after coming to power. The individual who would be more than satisfied with the response would be none other than the party supremo and Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao. Though, the CM did not make any new announcements, his speech gave a boost to the party workers, gearing up for the 2019 elections. KCR added that there are several people who interrupted the development of Telangana in united Andhra Pradesh, and they are still trying to do it even today. The Telangana CM added that, “We must unite to fight them and achieve ‘Bangaru Telangana’ we all dream of.” None of them believed in the party, when it was formed 16 years ago, but it has achieved its target of creating a separate state of Telangana, and is currently running the government for three years now. The TRS Chief addressed the huge crowd saying, “All the elections conducted after the formation of Telangana have been in our favor, and 2019 will not be any different.” He even made fun of those who say the TRS was losing public support. KCR added that “During the GHMC elections, Communist Party of India (CPI) leader K Narayana said he would cut his ear if the TRS won the elections. We all know what happened. Some other person is growing his beard saying he will shave only after the TRS rule is completed. All these people can cut or grow whatever they want after the election results in 2019,” he said. KCR who was elated by the response of the people who turned up for the meeting said, it was because of them, the TRS is in this position today. He even challenged other parties in TS to conduct a public meeting of these proportions. He also urged the farmers to come together, and form committees at each level and create a strong community that has the power to decide the price of the produce they have worked hard for. The CM claimed that the state had struggled hard to get rid of irrigation, electricity and drinking water problems. The welfare schemes that are being implemented give power to the common man, in creating a stronger state. KCR declared further that,“Until the last drop of my blood, I will fight to achieve Bangaru Telangana.” KCR also accused Congress of not caring for the people in power, but now trying to put obstructions in the government’s efforts to build irrigation projects for the people. Sidelights Of The Meeting: Flowery Welcome Flowers were sprinkled through motorized paragliders on people reaching the TRS’ public meeting venue at Prakashreddypet in Hanamkonda. Warangal West MLA Dasyam Vinay Bhaskar said the flowers were sprinkled on the orders of Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao. “KCR told us that giving a proper reception to guests is part of Telangana’s culture. Respect guests, he told us. That is why are showering people with flowers,” he said. Colour Me Pink It was pink all the way, with supporters making their way to the public meeting venue on vehicles decorated with flowers and TRS flags. Bicycles, tractors, trucks, cars, bikes, autos, even trains, had a touch of pink as the guests braved the hot sun and turned up in lakhs.   Anything Goes Several leaders joined their supporters and came on tractors and buses. Ministers Pocharam Srinivas Reddy, Jupalli Krishna Rao, Laxma Reddy and others came on tractors with supporters from their respective constituencies. Leaders In A Jam Traffic came to a standstill for several km on the Hyderabad-Warangal and Karimnagar-Warangal roads. Traffic jams spread to several km. Minister Etala Rajender, MP B. Vinod and other TRS leaders were among those who were stuck in traffic for hours. Warangal is also believed to be TRS chief K Chandrashekar Rao’s lucky charm as the region never faltered his trust.

AAP Chief Blames Modi’s Growing Stature For MCD Poll Defeat April 27, 2017 17:25

The victory of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Uttar Pradesh elections and the “growing stature” of Prime Minister Narendra Modi are to be blamed for the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) defeat in the MCD poll elections, said AAP Chief Arvind Kejiriwal. Following the defeat of the party at MCD polls, Arvind Kejriwal sought an urgent meeting at his residence in New Delhi. After the defeat of the party in the elections, it faced a number of resignations from some of the parties top leadership. Taking responsibility for the defeat, lawmaker Alka Lamba, quoted a leading news channel saying, “I take personal responsibility for the party's defeat in all three wards in my constituency and offer to resign from all party posts and as a lawmaker.” On April 11, Poonam Jha Azad, wife of suspended BJP MP and ex-cricketer Kirti Jha Azad, quit the AAP, which she had joined for hardly five months, and switched over to the Congress. Poonam, who took on former Delhi CM Sheila Dikshit from Gole Market in the 2003 Assembly elections, termed her joining the Congress as a “homecoming”, since her father-in-law Bhagwat Jha Azad was a CM of Bihar from the Congress. Another blow came to the AAP party, when the party in-charge, Sanjay Singh of Punjab, took to twitter to announce organization-building head Durgesh Pathak and his own resignation. Meanwhile, AAP MP Bhagwat Mann from Sangrur, Punjab slammed the party leadership for “behaving like a mohalla cricket team,” and said AAP had committed a “historic blunder” with regard to the overall strategy in the elections in Punjab. Mann said, there is no use in finding fault with the Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) now. First, it should look within to find out reasons that stopped AAP’s march to power.” The BJP swept Delhi’s civic polls yesterday, bagging an unprecedented 181 of the 270 municipal wards. With AAP managing to win just 48 seats, and Congress trailing at the third position with 30 seats, the BJP’s victory margin is the highest ever in Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) polls.
