Veteran actor Mohan Babu’s darling daughter and noted film producer Lakshmi Prasanna in an interview to popular Telugu News Channel said, “I don’t understand why our male folk in our country always being concentrated upon women and their sex appeal. Perhaps, it is because of lack of sex education. I strongly believe that sex education is necessary for our society. Then only a healthy society can be formed in our country.”
Speaking about the over dose of sex and romance in the present movies, she said “Unless there is romance and sex how can our mankind could be created? Romance and sex always exists. If one could watch our Lord Balaji Temple at Tirupati or any other temples in our country, there were so many statues sculptured on them, indicating about the necessity of sex and romance in our lives. We even worship gods who have several wives. But, when it comes to practical in real life everyone of us consider the sex and romance as sins. None of us wants to talk about sex and romance in public. That’s why we find an odd behaviour in majority of our male folk in our society.”
“If, there is no sex and romance in our movies, shall we like to watch them at all? As far as my films are concerned a limited dose of romance and glamour, say it exposing will be there to delight the audiances. After all, every one of us has those desires in our minds, because we are human beings. Then, we should frankly accept that sex and romance is also part of our life and not a sin.”
Lakshmi Prasanna opined that, women should also enter the film making and other wings of the film production and prove themselves. Marriage shouldn’t be goal for life but it should be part of life. Women need not sacrifice their carrier for the sake of their marriage or for husband or for family.

The heroes in films in Tollywood are always accuse of setting a bad example to the youth. They are shown smoking and drinking in gay abandon. Some heroes are also shown to defy set conventions. Defying parents and elders and eloping with a girl is shown as some big machismo in film ater film.
For a change, one hero has set a good example which the youngsters will do well to emulate. It is his understanding about the value of good education.
Desamuduru Allu Arjun now has a couple of films in hand. He was doing his BBA course when he got a chance to act in his first film in Tollywood. After that, he got so busy with films that he had to discontinue his education.
But Allu Arjun knows the value of education. He says that he may now be a big star but if he does not have higher education and a degree, there would be something missing from his life. Money is only secondary to education.
So Arjun is now pursuing the course in the distance education mode. Allu Arjun also wants to pursue a Film course in the US some in the near future.

2008/4/3 15:10:59 No film has usurped director Mysskin’s “Anjathe” from its top position yet. Only in summer will you see movies that can make a difference. The top five Tamil films are: 1. “Anjathe” - Director: Mysskin. This bold attempt has met with acceptance. Helping him immensely are actors Narain and Prasanna with their performances.
2. “Vellithirai” - Director: Viji. When the “Mozhi” team came together again in the remake of hit Malayalam film “Udayananu Tharam”, people expected a lot but it doesn’t have the humour or the strength of the original.
3. “Sandai” - Director: Shakthi Chidambaram. Actor Sundar C. is turning out to be a safe bet at the box office. The scenes between Nadia Moidu and Sundar are the film’s highlights.
4. “Kannum Kannum” - Director: Marimuthu. This is a beautifully crafted love story. Favourable reviews are helping the film. This is Prasanna’s third hit.
5. “Sadhu Miranda” - Director: Siddique. Malayalam director Siddique’s Tamil film is a success because of the way the story is treated. The film has Prasanna and Kavya Madhavan in the lead.

He said the film will be made in par with international standards with a very big budget. Explaining about the title “The film will put its audiences on full alert through out the show, as there would be unexpected nerve chilling twists in every other minute in this movie. The comedy track also will be totally different from the routine stuff. We will announce the full details of our movie very soon,” Manchu boy.
After successful films like 'Sadhu miranda', Anjathey' and 'Kannum kannum' Prasanna's next film is 'Manjal veyil'. Acted with French beard in 'Sadhu Miranda' and a huge lock of hair in ' Anjathey', Prasanna will not even have the usual moustache in 'Manjal veyil' Sandhya has a weighty character in 'Manjal veyil' after 'Thoondil'. Actor Bala has done shocking role in this film.
Is it a triangular love story with Prasanna, Sandhya and Bala? Director Raja Arumugam claims that the film is even above that. All songs of the film are brilliant in Bharadwaj's music.
After shooting, even the double positives are ready. Efforts are being made to release the film during this month. They are also planning to conduct a poetry contest involving the public. Proper announcement to that effect will soon be made.

Nag is very busy with Don and other films which are in the pipeline. The only reason why he has accepted Mohan Babu’s request is that Mohan Babu is a dear friend and has also with him in Annamayya. So this is Nag’s way of saying thanks and also repaying an old debt. But Nag is doing the role on one condition; he is charging Mohan Babu based on his current market rate for doing the role. Business is business and friendship is friendship!
