2008/3/28 13:13:21 Noted character artist Prakash Raj has filed for divorce from his wife. All was not well between the two for some time. There have been many colourful reports doing the rounds for some time linking Prakash Raj to an actress in Tollywood ass well as his personal secretary and also another actress in Kollywood. Prakash Raj has however denied all these allegations and termed them as baseless rumours. He said that he was not having any affair with anyone, in or outside the industry.
Prakash Raj’s wife Lalitha Kumari is the sister of Disco Shanthi. It is understood that Shanthi and her husband noted actor Sri Hari are trying to mediate and sort out the differences. It remains to b seen how far this will bear result. As of now, Prakash Raj seems to be very firm in his decision to seek divorce from Lalitha Kumari
2011/7/9 4:44:34 Tollywood actor Prakash Raj seems now concentrating in film direction than acting. He will be directing a bilingual film titled ‘Dhoni’ to be produced by Venkat of RR Movie Makers. This film will be made in Telugu and Tamil languages simultaneously. Currently, script work of this film is in progress. Prakash has already a Kannada film ‘Nannu Naana Kanasu’ to his credit which is a remake of his super hit film ‘Akasamanth.’
The grapevine says that Prakash Raj is back to his old ways. He reports late for shootings which puts both the director and the other actors to severe inconvenience. Even the producer is not happy as his film gets delayed due to frequent pack ups on account of the absence of Prakash Raj.
That old habits die hard was once again proved when he did not report on time for his latest film Athidi with Mahesh Babu in the lead. It is believed that the entire unit of Athidi is fed up with Prakash Raj’s erratic ways and he is being dropped from the film. Sushanth Singh the villain in Dubai Seenu is being seriously considered to play villain the film in place of Prakash Raj.
Prakash Raj has excelled in his role as the over possessive dad of Siddhartha in Bommarillu. Prakash Raj is now producing a film in Tamil on his Duet Films banner. The film is about the relationship between a father and his daughter. Trisha is playing Prakash Raj's daughter in the film. Trisha is one of the hottest stars in Tamil.
She is presently acting in Bheema with Vikram and Kireedam with Ajit. Radha Mohan of Muddula Koduku fame will direct the film. Incidentally this is the second time that Prakash Raj and Trisha are playing father and daughter in a film. There earlier film was Varsham with Prabhas in the lead.
The news that he has been dropped from the film Athidhi is lie music to his ears. And it is believed that this was exactly what he wanted. As far as Prakash Raj is concerned, he is more than happy to be out of the film, Athidhi. He has signed a lucrative deal with Director Shankar. And he is reported to b getting one crore for his film.
This is the highest remuneration for any character artist in Kollywood. And for his film, Shankar is reported to have sought for bulk dates from Prakash Raj.. And Prakash Raj saw to it that he was dropped from Athidhi by the producers and thereby relieved of his work for this film, which sets him free to give bulk dates for Shankar. So there is more to it than meets the eye as far Prakash Raj is concerned.
Verstile actor Prakash Raj is a familiar face in both Telugu and Tamil films. He is an actor par excellence and can portray any role with ease – be it a villain or a doting father. Most of the films in which Prakash Raj starred have done well at th box office. All this has made him the number one choice as villain or character artist for many producers and directors.
Well Prakash Raj’s hard work is finally paying off. He has reportedly bagged an offer to act in a Tamil movie being produced by Shankar and guess what? He is being paid a whopping Rs. One crore for this film, yes One Crore. Well that is more than what many of the heroes are still trying to reach.
Prakash Raj, the bad guy of Telugu cinema, has been banned by the Producer’s guild from acting in Telugu movies. The ban follows several complaints received by the guild over the past few years.
Prakash Raj is a great artist but he is also totally unprofessional. He always reports late for shootings and on many occasions, abstained from shooting altogether without informing the producer or the director.
Prakash Raj is not just a villain but a versatile artist too. He can play character artist roles with ease. In short, he is the most loved villain in Tollywood.
2008/1/31 11:13:43 Actor Prakash Raj is the favorite actor of many producers and directors. No one can essay some character and villain roles like him on screen. But of late, Prakash Raj has acquired a rather unsavory reputation.
He never reports to the sets on time and also absents himself from shootings for long periods without intimation. As a result, he had been dropped from many films. Prakash Raj is now facing a similar situation in Tamil. He has been dropped from a film and Nazar will take his place in the film.
The bond between actor Prakash Raj and heroine of yesteryears' is growing stronger. Though they move very closely, their 'affair' has so far been known only to Chennai folks. Now they are making 'It' evident in Hyderabad too.
When Prakash Raj had to stay back in Hyderabad for more than a week, the actress too came down to Hyderabad on the pretext of shopping. They had good time all their stay here. Her ailing husband and star director is swallowing his tears in Chennai as per the sources.
Prakash Raj is not just an actor. He is also a producer with a few films to his credit. Prakash Raj is now trying his hand at direction.
His maiden directorial venture Dhoni is now progressing at a brisk pace. The film is based on the subject of cricket and how a father and son resolve a difference. While the father wants his son to excel in studies, the son has a burning passion for cricket.
Prakash Raj is not just a good actor who can do varied roles but also a shrewd producer who encourage new talents.
He introduced the likes of Radha Mohan and V Priya to filmdom. He has a penchant for soft melodramas.
Prakash Raj’s recent venture Mozhi directed by Radha Mohan starring Prithviraj, Prakash Raj, Jyothika and Swarnamalya was not appreciated by the critics but also went on to collect good revenue at the box office.
Amidst commercial clichés, he opts to produce good clean entertainers that can be watched with whole family. The latest buzz doing rounds is that Prakash Raj has roped in Suhasini Manirathinam to direct a movie for his production house – Duet Movies.
Suhasini had earlier wielded the megaphone for national award winner Indira.
Dhoni and Prabhudeva are two celebrities in different fields. Yet, Dhoni got attracted by Prabhudeva?
This is about film 'Dhoni' to be made by Prakash Raj and not about the cricketer Mahendar Singh Dhoni. Prakash Raj has roped in Prabhudeva into his 'Dhoni' film. Prakash Raj is directing, producing and acting in this bilingual movie to be made in Telugu and Tamil languages simultaneously. Prakash Raj, who is said to be given charge of making arrangements for Prabhudeva and Nayanatara's wedding in Mumbai has got this idea when they met in Mumbai some time ago. Prakash Raj is introducing Puri Jagannath's son Akash with this film as a child artist. The name 'Dhoni' which normally reminds us cricket is apt for this film title because it is about cricket game. The shooting will be done in Hyderabad and Chennai to give native look for both versions. The full details of this movie will be announced soon.
Telugu audiences know Prakash Raj only as a versatile artiste. However, he had so many other facets. He is a good producer and had produced several films in Tamil.
His latest flick in Tamil is 'Poi' with Udaykiran in the lead which was dubbed into Telugu. The film was the 101st film in Balachander's direction. There are, of course, no takers for that film and it remained a big dud.
Now Prakash Raj has decided to produce a straight Telugu film. The project will take shape once Prakash Raj becomes free from the present assignments on hand.
2011/5/19 16:46:07 Tollywood actor Prakash Raj, who had ease and style in acting, wins the hearts of Telugu and Tamil audiences with his number of films released in both languages. But, since he hails from Karnataka he wants a patting from Kannada audiences. Earlier, he has directed a Kannada movie ‘Naanu Nanna Kanasu’ but it was failed at box office. Hence, he is once again going to direct another Kannada film titled as ‘Swaroopa.’ He may start this film very soon.
