The TDP chief Chandra Babu Naidu is known to cozy up to people and extract the maximum out of them. After his purpose has been served, he will not think twice to dump them in the dustbin. He has done this many times before. Babu did this to several people. Harikrishna, Balakrishana, Mohan Babu … are just a few examples. After the death of NT Rama Rao, Babu utilized their services to consolidate his position and isolate Lakshmi Parvati.
Once his position as chief minister was secure, he started showing his true colours. He sidelined them one by one. Now the Babu is wooing them once again. He wants Harikrishna, Balakrishna, Jr NTR, Kalyanram and other members of the NTR family to campaign for him in the next assembly elections.
The one person who never forgave Babu is the eldest daughter of NT Rama Rao, Daggubati Purandareshwari. She is now in the congress and is also a union minister. Purandareshwari blasted Babu for his coup against his father which led to his untimely demise. She is one person whom Babu has not been able to fool all these years.
In this Friday’s release Fool And Final , cute babe Ayesha Takia plays a wonder woman.
The film, directed by choreographer-turned-director Ahmed Khan, is a funny comedy about a number of over-the-top characters. A part of the film is a spoof on the superheroes trying to save the world.
But there are no superheroes in the film. Only a bunch of fools who get together to steal a diamond. The movie’s punchline says: ‘Stealing Stones and Breaking Bones’.
There are sequences in the film that show Shahid Kapur dressed as Superman, Paresh Rawal as Batman, Ayesha Takia as Wonder Woman, and Johnny Lever as Spiderman.
Ayesha says her role in ‘Fool And Final’ is more than just wonder woman.
“I play a small-time thief Tina who works with her uncle (Paresh Rawal). Then I meet Rajaa (Shahid Kapoor) and fall in love with him. But my uncle keeps pushing Rajaa to help us in robberies,” reveals Ayesha about her role in the film.
Ayesha says fun went hand-in-hand with work while shooting for ‘Fool And Final’. The film’s stars were constantly cracking jokes on each other and pulling each other’s leg. They did not spare even the film’s director, Ahmed Khan. And while shooting the music video in the film, the actors had a ball of time when they kept throwing balls at each other.
‘Fool And Final’ will hit the theatres on Friday, June 1. The movie also stars Vivek Oberoi , Sunny Deol , Arbaaz Khan , Jackie Shroff and Sameera Reddy .
2007/11/27 11:50:09 KCR is a fool. This is the reaction of CPI leader Suravaram Sudhakar Reddy to KCR’s act of praising the Nizam. KCR raised a storm by participating in the 41st death anniversary of the seventh Nizam Mir Osman Ali Khan. KCR defended his act by quoting the name of Kaloji and others. He also pointed out that the Nizam had done many good deeds too. But the issue, as like any other involving KCR, is unlikely to die down soon.
Ayesha steals hearts, not diamonds in Fool N Final
While all the men in FOOL N FINAL may be busy stealing or protecting multi-million worth diamonds, pretty-n-cute Ayesha Takia is busy stealing hearts!
For her fans, FOOL N FINAL is a much awaited film, especially after DOR and KYA LOVE STORY HAI where she played serious roles. This makes FOOL N FINAL special since Ayesha has let her hair down (literally) and sung, jumped and danced along to some funky rhythm on the foreign locales.
Wait is over for those who wanted to witness her at her young-n-stunning best and she doesn't disappoint at all by wearing young costumes and accessories with even a little excessive make up suiting her profile.
Wish the audience enjoys her presence on screen as much as she is. This is because she seems to be genuinely happy while enacting a total-nonsense part just like the rest of the starcast comprising of Sunny Deol, Shahid Kapoor, Viveik Oberoi, Sameera Reddy, Paresh Rawal and Johney Lever, who have hardly caught a breath in this yet another racy adventurous film by Firoz Nadiadwala.
Woman devotees of Sathya Sai Baba are now at the receiving end of the lathis of the police. The woman devotees have been camping in Puttaparthi for the last one month but could not get a glimpse of Baba when he was alive.
Now when they are trying to pay their homage to Baba, the cops are harassing them. The woman devotees were latch charged when they tried to enter Sai Kulwant Hall where Baba’s mortal remains have now been kept.
There are no woman constables and the woman devotes are shocked and hurt by the way the cops are treating them. Still not a single devotee is ready to leave Puttaparthi without paying last respects to Baba.
The maverick director Ram Gopal Varma love just one thing – publicity. He never lets go an opportunity to be in the limelight.
For Ramu anything is fine as along as it gets him some free mileage. Ramu made films based on the life of Paritala Ravi. He later announced that he as making a film on sandalwood smuggler Veerappan. Nothing much came out of that.
Now with the death of Osama bin Laden Ramu is back again. He reportedly plans to make a film on Al Qaeda and Osama bin Laden.
A media person who has been following Varma closely for a longtime says that it is noting but a cheap publicity stunt.
He says that Ramu thinks that he is a genius but people think that he is a pompous fool!
New Delhi, Sep 12 (IANS) He can make girls go weak in their knees with his looks, dimpled smile and sculpted body. But John Abraham says he never had the guts to go up to a woman and express his feelings.
"All through my growing years, I've always had crushes on women who never reciprocated my feelings, but went after my friends. I never had the guts or the right time to go up to a woman and tell her that I really like her," said John, who has been voted as India's sexiest bachelor by Big CBS Prime.
John, who broke up with actress Bipasha Basu after an eight-year relationship, never even tried a pick up line on women.
"I never tried a pick up line on a woman because I think no woman deserves a pick up line, very honestly," John said.
An unidentified woman fell into the valley in Tirumala. The mishap occurred when the woman who was on her way by foot to Tirumala slipped and fell into the valley.

Prince Mahesh Babu is now the hottest actor in Tollywood. He has given many big hits and acquired an image of baby faced hero who is also a tough nut to crack. Pokiri was a blockbuster hit. His latest film Ahtidhi may not have done that well but he continues to be the much in demand hero.
Vijaynirmala has now announced that she would wield the baton once again. She will direct a film with son Mahesh Babu as the hero. The talk of a film in the combination of mother and son has already generated a lot of interest. Work on the film will commence in March. The details will be announced soon.

After a very special appearance in Eklavya Sharmila Tagore would be seen on the big screen again. While in Eklavya, she was cast in a serious part, in FOOL N FINAL she is expected to be seen in a lighter role.
Simply called 'bhabhi', Sharmila Tagore plays Sunny Deol's 'bhabhi' in the film while her on-screen husband is played by Om Puri. As a mother who had lost her son, she comes across Shahid Kapoor who is his carbon copy. Unaware about the fact that he was not her real son, she is thrilled to bits when her brother-in-law Sunny introduces him to her.
A fun comic thriller, Fool N Final is directed by Ahmed Khan and is expected to open with a bumper response on June 01 when it releases all over.
2008/3/20 12:43:14 Actor Mohan Babu celebrated his birthday in style at his school in Tirupathi. Union minister Purandareshwari was the chief guest at the function. She heaped laurels and Mohan Babu and he in turn praised her sky high.
The mutual admiration for each other by Mohan Babu and Purandareshwari surprised everyone. Mohan Babu gave some broad hints that he is joining the congress party. Purandareshwari is likely to take the lead in arranging for Mohan Babu’s entry into the congress party.
Mohan Babu was in the Telugu Desam for some time. He later quit the party following some differences with Chandra Babu Naidu. Mohan Babu was major partner in Babu’s Heritage Foods. But Babu slowly eased Mohan Babu completely from the affairs of the company and also got Mohan Babu’s stake in Heritage foods down completely.
2006/12/1 10:23:35 Firoz A. Nadiadwala [HERA PHERI, DEEWANE HUYE PAAGAL, PHIR HERA PHERI] is one ambitious producer. Known for spending magnificently on his movies and also promoting them to the optimum prior to their release, Firoz is now leaving no stone unturned to give his best to his forthcoming two multi-starrers, FOOL & FINAL [dir.: Ahmed Khan] and the Anees Bazmee-directed WELCOME.
The prolific producer is currently stationed at the picturesque hill station Lonavala with a massive 250 member unit, canning the climax of WELCOME. But this climax, he says, is different from the usual culminations of a movue. He has built a mansion atop a mountain where the penultimate portions of the film are being filmed. “The mansion shakes every time a strong wind blows,” he jokes.
What prompted Firoz to opt for a mountain? “We had shot the interiors of the mansion on a set at Mumbai’s Film City. Since the mansion is located on a mountain, we opted for Lonavala,” he says. Incidentally, the climax of NO ENTRY was also shot on a mountain [in Thailand]. WELCOME should hopefully be the next release of Anees Bazmee after the smash hit NO ENTRY. “It’s a pleasure to work with him,” Firoz states, adding that WELCOME is slated for release in May 2007.
While on releases, there’s talk that FOOL & FINAL, slated for a 26th January, 2007 release, might be shifted ahead by a few weeks since some distributors feel that it’s not right to clash with another biggie in the same week -- SALAAM-E-ISHQ. “FOOL & FINAL is definitely arriving on 26th January. I am not postponing its release,” he sets the record straight.
With a cast that boasts of stars like Shahid Kapur, Ayesha Takia, Sunny Deol, Sameera Reddy and Viveik Oberoi, 'Fool 'N' Final' is a small album that has the very busy Himesh Rehammiya composing all the tracks and Sameer penning the lyrics.
The soundtrack comprises certain notable numbers that are already making the rounds on television but the rest don't really deserve any mention. Surprisingly, Reshammiya has allowed others too to do the singing in the album.
Kunal Ganjawala takes the mike to croon 'Tere layee', a song that is different and catchy owing completely to the way the music is arranged and the manner in which the beats take a youthful, perky and Western twist. Himani of 'Sa Re Ga Ma Pa' fame joins Ganjawala in the track.
Another captivating track is 'Yeh dooriyan', which will surely encompass mixed reactions. Newcomer Hanif Shaikh has done a great job as his voice is quite unlike the typical Bollywood voice and has something interesting about it.
The track is slightly Western in its arrangements, which makes it more appealing.
'Ek kalsa' comes next. It is sure to fade away without anyone even knowing that it existed. Seriously! What was lyricist Sameer thinking when he penned the words for it? Reshammiya's singing skills, as usual, require a rethink.
After 'Ek kalsa', Reshammiya croons to 'Sigdi', a forgettable number. Jayesh Gandhi joins him in the song that makes an easy attempt in not impressing listeners at all and Reshammiya fans might second thoughts about their favourite singer.
Only the first two tracks are impressive but there's little to make the album a great hit.

Babu was received by enthusiastic party workers when he reached Nagarjun Sagar bordering on Guntur and Nalgonda districts. Babu is now en-route to Mirayalguda.
Babu will have a tough time campaigning in Telangana as the sensitive 'separate Telangana' issue is likely to crop up at every place he goes now.

2008/2/3 19:07:56 Chandra Babu has already begun the countdown for chief minster YS Rajashekar Reddy. The reason behind Babu’s new found enthusiasm and buoyancy is the unprecedented response to the ‘Eeruvaka’ programme of the TDP.
