The actors in Tollywood are known for their affairs. Many do it discreetly but some are now doing it openly. We now have people like Charmee – Devi Sree Prasad, who are said to move about freely and re not bothered about the gossip. Devi Sree is reported to be serious about marrying Charmee.
Kamalini Mukherjee and Sumanth were reportedly dating for over two years, from the time of their film Godavari. Now it is an on and off affair.

2011/9/28 15:02:35 Actor-producer Dia Mirza, who is looking forward to the release of her debut production venture "Love Breakups Zindagi", says she treated her actors like kids on the sets of the film.
"Actors are like kids. You have to take care of them like kids, look after their smallest needs and make them feel wanted and comfortable. We tried to provide all actors an atmosphere where they felt good and also tried to create an environment of love and trust," said Dia at an event here.
"Love Breakups Zindagi" is a slice-of-life film, which is made under Dia, Zayed Khan and Sahil Sanga's banner Born Free Entertainment and Sahara Motion Pictures has co-produced it and directed Sanga. The film will hit the silver screens Oct 7.
Who is better - Zayed as a producer or Zayed as an actor?
"It is our relationship and our camaraderie that drives us. And the bond that we share reflects in our film. I wouldn't choose either of them as he is my friend first," she said. (IANS)
2007/9/7 12:22:30 Many people who watched Chandamama came out feeling nostalgic about the good old days. Krishnavamsi has made the film in a neat and clean manner. The film is reminiscent of the good old movies in olden days that stressed the importance of the joint family system. The films has been made with a rural backdrop and is quite refreshing to se the lush green fields, and villagers going about their day to do affairs in a relaxed manner. The film has no villains and no garish sets. Al the actors have done a good job and even the comedy is very clean. One wonders if it is due to the fact that the film does not boast of any of the leading comedy actors in the field. Creative director Krishnavamsi has shown that the tag creative is quite appropriative for him.
Though rumors might abound about Bipasha Basu's secret dates and her short term affairs post her break-up with John Abraham, the real story seems to be a different tale of sorts.
According to a reliable source, Bipasha thinks there is more to life than just men. Linking her up and reporting her secret affairs are not bothering the actress much who anyways is high on her single status at the moment.
Adds our source, "There is no doubt that Bipasha is making the most of her newly attained single status. Though she might be befriending new people, but she often reported secret affairs border on ridicule most of the time. The actress in real has taken a break from men. Bipasha thinks there is more to life than just men and she is making sure to have full throttle fun without falling prey to cupid anytime soon."
While Bipasha is on a break from the cupid affairs, we hear John is lying low-key trying to come to terms with what life has handed him we mean a broken heart.

New Delhi, Nov 3 (IANS) If there are Bollywood actors you love to hate, Arjun Rampal will try and change your perception through his new TV show "Love 2 Hate U".
"My new show is going to be very interesting. It deals with people who make opinions about actors. Just like people are crazy about Bollywood actors, there are some who totally hate them. So it is just my attempt to bring them face-to-face with the actor they hate and help them change their mind," Arjun told IANS.
The show will be televised on Star World starting Nov 20. The promo is already on air. True to the theme of his show, Arjun says: "You've got hate, you're my bait!"
The actor, who has earned rave reviews for his looks and acting in Shah Rukh Khan's superhero project "RA.One", feels the boost in social networking has urged people to express their views on actors and films more visibly.
"There are so many social networking platforms -- Facebook, Twitter and blogs, where opinionated people vent their opinions. Most of the times, they are strong and justified opinions...so it will be interesting to see when such people meet the person they are so fond of (I mean sarcastically)," said Arjun.
The supermodel-turned-actor, who started his film career in 2001 with "Pyaar Ishq Aur Mohabbat", was written off as wooden and expressionless after no show in "Moksha", "Deewanapan" and "Dil Ka Rishta". But projects like "Om Shanti Om", "Rock On!!" and "Raajneeti" came as a turning point in his career. He even won a national award for his supporting role in "Rock On!!".
"I faced quite a lot of criticism at the beginning of my film career. People made an opinion about me too fast. But once some of them met me, they were able to change that opinion about me. I hope that through my show, people go through a similar experience and are able to change their opinions about actors, because each one of us works very hard," he said.
This is not Arjun's first stint on the small screen. He was one of the judges on dance reality show "Nach Baliye 4".
The congress high command has made several organizational changes. The AICC in charge for AP Digvijy Singh has been shifted to Uttar Pradesh.
The former CM of Karnataka Veerappa Moily will be the new in charge of Andhra Pradesh affairs. Rahul Gandhi has been made the Congress party General Secretary and also inducted to the Congress Working Committee. He will also look after the affairs of the Youth congress.
Tollywood beauty Anushka is one such actress who enjoys stardom despite having several ups and downs in her career. “It is because of my flexibility in accepting different kind of roles, even though many times they were not helpful to my career anyway,” says Anushka.
“Being in top position, I can demand for top priority for me any for my roles in the films. But, it is not my style. If, I need to act some unimportant role because the story demand I will happily do it without any hesitations. Actors, especially female stars should be very flexible with their roles. Some times we may get a great role like ‘Arundhati’ and many times unimportant roles. Hence, I believe flexibility is the most important thing for our survival in the industry,” said Anushka.
She also stated “There is great advantage in working with senior actors like Balakrishna, Venkatesh, Nagarjuna and others. They always guide me in my career. They often say not to take hurried decisions which may spoil the career. I also love the performance of Kollywood actors Surya, Vikram and Vijay. All of they are great actors. While, I found Surya as a good father, I am quite surprised to see Vikram transferring into his character. I learnt many techniques in acting from all these stars, which helped me a lot all the way in my career.”
Bhavana may look like a demure quiet lass but the minute she opens her mouth, she’s just the opposite.
Actors seem to be caught up in her chatty dialogues. They like to chat with her for her easy manner, but after a quarter hour of general topics, what is there to talk about?
Here’s where many get caught. To keep pace with her, they slowly divulge personal information. Once it’s in Bhavana’s ears, the details all come out during her next conversation with another star.
This includes comments made by one actor about another! Many have found themselves in uncomfortable positions because of this.
Those who know Bhavana’s nature, avoid personal conversations with her. Even if they do speak to her, they keep their conversations casual. The actors in the Tamil field know her well now, so she’s trying her wiles on Telugu actors now!
Does Bhavana know that Telugu actors are not as soft as Tamil actors?
2011/6/25 17:42:48 Senior Congress leader G Rudraraju on Saturday condemned the allegations levelled by Telugu Desam Council Floor leader Dadi Veerabhadra Rao that a prominent person in the state government, along with three of Ministers in the N Kiran Kumar Reddy Cabinet are involved in affairs of the Satya Sai Central Trust.
Talking to media persons at Assembly Media point, Mr Rudraraju stated that the government was only connected to the religious affairs conducted by the Trust and was not involved in its functioning.
The senior leader also denied the allegations levelled by Mr Dadi Veerabhadra Rao, describing them as ‘completely meaningless.’
“There is no truth behind the allegations,” he said, adding that the state government has never interfered in the affairs of any religious body.
However, Mr Rudraraju added that the government was observing the ‘unsavoury’ developments in the Trust and would take action if needed, at the appropriate time.
“The government is committed and would take all measures to protect the properties of the Trust and the interests of the devotees,” the senior leader assured.
After verifying the happenings in the Trust from all angles, the government would act against the members and punish anyone found guilty,” he added.(INN)
Former Miss Universe and a sucessful Bollywood actress Sushmita Sen who has been linked with married men in the previous times. In a chat with HTTabloid.com she discusses her relationship with Manav Menon.
You have chosen to remain silent on your latest boy friend Manav Menon. But why does it happen that you often fall in love with married men? I am not alone to be blamed for any relationship. Relationship is something which needs consent from both sides. I can't go to a boy, ask him whether he is married or not and then think of a relationship with him. Love is always blind to the religion, caste, creed and marital status of a person.
After all these affairs with married men, you must have learnt the art of keeping a man happy after marriage. Look, if a marriage breaks it's because of losing interest of one or both the partners for each other. As long as you maintain a strong bond, other women can't disturb your married life. But if a man is in look out for some other woman, how can you blame the other woman.
So, any idea when will Manav get divorce or when you will get married to him? This is something highly personal. I won't say anything regarding that.
Don't you feel difficult to get into a relationship with a virgin boy because of your image of a woman who has always enticed married men? Virginity has lost its meaning today. And it's true for a man as well as a woman. No one investigates whether a woman or a man is virgin or not before getting into a relationship. Everyone knows that sex is an experience of life. When I am in love, I am in love and when I am not I am not. It's as simple as that. Media has given this image to me but industry and people who are my friends, colleagues and co-stars know me very well.
