Earlier, it was reported that, Charmi will be pairing with Sunil in this movie, but all of a sudden Tapsi's name surfaced in the film.
This is for the first time a top actress like Tapsi to pair with comedian turned hero Sunil. Earlier, when Trisha was approached by Dil Raju for his upcoming film ‘Napoleon’ with Sunil, she has refused to pair with Sunil, despite knowing that Napoleon will be directed by SS Raja Mouli. She said that still he is a comedian in her view.
The original version ‘Tanu Weds Manu’ is a romantic comedy entertainer, which perfectly suits Sunil. The full details of this movie will be shortly announced.
Luck has smile on Charmi. She was desperately looking for in Tollywood. She had just one picture in hand when luck smiled on her. Noted director Bapu has finally decided to cast Charmi in his film. Bapu was said to be considering Suhani to play the heroine in his film.
Suhani even attend a photo session the other day. However it has come to light that Bapu considers Suhani to be too young to play the role of heroine in the film. The role requires a slightly mature woman. And Charmi fits the bill.
Charmi was the original choice but after some dilly dallying has now been finalized. Anil Kumar who produced the film ‘Radha Gopalam’ with Bapu is producing this new film. The film will hit the floor on 10 July.
2011/3/17 5:00:44 It becomes very difficult to convince the young heroines to pair with our 50+ Balakrishna in his films. This situation further worsens after the failure of his PVC. No young heroine in the industry could spare her dates to this elderly figure. He faced this bitter experience for his latest film being directed by Paruchuri Murali.
Since, Balayya is playing triple roles in this film, finding three heroines for him become a big task for the producer ML.Padma Kumar Chowdary. He has roped in the stand-by heroine Lakshmi Rai as the first heroine for Balayya. Then, he approached Bhumika who is gradually fading away from the industry. Surprisingly, she refused to pair with Balakrishna. Then, Charmi who is in desperate position was roped in as the second heroine. Then, for the third heroine Sanjana was approached. But, she also find it hard to digest to romance with a man who is more than twice her age. So, the teenaged girl Saloni who is branded as the ‘Telugammayi’ and looking around for film chances has been roped in to pair with Balakrishna as the third heroine. Then only the producer Chowdary could have a sigh of relief.
Balakrishna is acting as Factionist, Elderly man and as a Journalist in this film. Factionist character will have Lakshmi Rai beside him and Elderly man will romance with Charmi. Journalist will enjoy running around trees with Saloni.

This film is directed by Veera Badram Chowdary and produced by Achchi Reddy. They said they are planning to release the movie before Pongal festival next year. "This is a full length romantic comedy film. Sunil's performance would be the highlight of our movie," said the producer.

50 % shooting work has been completed. Explaining the details the director said that the story and narration is interesting. Charmi's acting is the sole reason for this film 'Mantra'.
This is reasonably different that the others in the pipe line. All the shooting will be completed by January said the director. As an actress 'Mantra' is part of me and my career said Charmi. Writer Surendra Krishna wrote emphatically for this film in spite of keeping it briefly.
Rallapalli, Jeeva, Chitram Srinu, Kaush, Shyam, Vijaya and others are party to this film.
The young and bubbly Kajal Agarwal is a late entry in Telugu. She made people to sit up and take notice with her action in Teja's Lakshmikalyanam. The film did not do well at the box office but many directors noticed Kajal and she has bagged quite a few roles. Kajal then went on to act in the lead role in Krishna Vamsi's Chandamama. She did a good job and the film was also a big hit. Kajal now has come up with another good performance in 'Porudu'. She has been widely appreciated for looks as well as here acting talent.
On the other side, Charmi has been around for quite some time. She acted with some big heroes including Nagarjuna. She later on slipped and did not have many films. She was playing some bit roles and as a second heroine. All this changed with 'Manthra'. The film has given a new lease of life and also proved that Charmi can single handedly pull in the audiences to the theatres.
The two are now in direct competition to bag roles. They are both good looking and also ready to dare and bare. They are also now in the race to learn Telugu. Charmi being an early entrant has some advantage. Charmi now speaks good Telugu. Kajal is also pickling up Telugu and now can speak with ease. At this rate, Kajal will soon be dubbing in her own voice.
2011/7/30 5:49:06 Bollywood movie ‘Tanu weds Manu,’ which goes average in Hindi belt is planned to remake into Telugu with Sunil and Tapsi playing the lead roles. But, the latest news is Tapsi has rejected this offer stating that she couldn’t allot her dates to this film since she has other commitments.
Earlier, when Dil Raju has approached Trisha asking to pair with Sunil in his Napoleon movie, Trisha said that she still see Sunil as a comedian only and can’t guess to pair with him. Now, Tapsi turning down the Sunil’s offer, it should be understood that, our heroines need certain range for their heroes otherwise they can’t pair with them. But, no doubt that Sunil also will have his day soon, when the same heroines may need to queue-up before his house requesting for offer in his films. Sunil has already proved this in the case of Ram Gopal Varma, who rejected him in the past but recently made a dud film like KSD Appala Raju with him.
Now, Sunil needs a heroine for this movie and another for his Napoleon movie.
2010/10/28 16:03:21 Tollywood hot babe Charmi has never shown hesitation for skin shows in any of her movies. She even did some lip lock scenes in one of her earlier films. Yet, all her movies go unnoticed and leave her in great disappointment. Her last film ‘Sye Ata’ was also an instant reject. She relied upon solo shows specifically acting in thriller movies hoping every other film would be a ‘Mantra’ for her. She pinned all her hopes on her forthcoming Mangala which is also of same type. Well, at the same time she didn’t ignore her skin shows in her other film ‘Sevakudu’ pairing with Srikanth. According to inside sources she goes to maximum limits in exposing in this film. It’s learnt that she even acts in very hot scenes with hero Srikanth in this movie. This film is directed by V. Samudra. Including the director, Srikanth and Charmi badly need a hit for their survival in the industry. Therefore, these three may go to any extent for success.
Comedian Sunil is known to crack some very good jokes. In fact, he came up in films with this ability and it continues to be his asset even today.
Sunil has also played hero and his latest film Banthi has him playing hero. He is also a good dancer. Now he is also doing fighting scenes in his new film. And in addition, Sunil is now writing the comedy track for his role in the movie.

2006/8/24 10:51:23 Director Kanmani who made a mark with 'Naa Oopiri' is now busy directing the latest Film with Sumanth and Charmi as main leads in 'Chinnodu'. On this occasion the Director Kanmani revealed that Sumanth plays a different role. In this role Sumanth's character is that he behaves like a normal person but does extraordinary things. The film entirely depends upon this character said the director. The film has something for everyone from Romance, Action, and Drama to Entertainment. The other Producer Srikanth informed that the audio will be released on September 20 th.
Once again Charmi’s Mangala film which was released today has proved that, pre-release hype will be a big disadvantage for any film. Her success ‘Mantra’ seems to be not worked with her ‘Mangala.’ There were high expectations from the audiences over this film, as the film makers were able to create enough hype for their film. But, the end result is not so encouraging. The talk is average.
Let us see what went wrong with Mangala. Story in brief:
Charmi is a film heroine in this film. Her die-hard fan Vijaya Sai who had an ambition to present a car to his favorite heroine Mangala (Charmi), got the money from his father Pradeep Rawat who is a witch master. But, when he went to meet Mangala to present the car to her, he was mistakenly blamed by her for mobbing her. Then, her care taker cum car driver Subhash beat him black and blue. Therefore, he unable to bear the insult make suicide attempt. Though, he fails in his attempt his condition deteriorates and counting his last minutes.
His father Pradeep Rawat to save his son makes desperate attempts to contact Charmi whom he believed that, she is the only person who can save his son’s life. But, Charmi told him that she couldn’t visit his son as she is busy with film shootings. Pradeep Rawat become furious with his beloved son’s death and to take revenge on Charmi he use ‘Sakuchi’ witch craft magic against the heroine Charmi.
How ‘Sakuchi’ affects Charmi, her terrifying behavior and how did she overcome the ‘Sakuchi’ affect is rest of the story.
Back ground music plays vital role for any horror or thriller films. Here in Mangala’s case also, its music director Viswa enhanced the horror affects with his stunning music. Editing and Art departments have contributed a lot to this. But, some minute flaws in Camera work downplay the game.
Director Osho Tulasiram runs the first half of the film with tight screen play and created hype. But, he got distracted with his story line and indulged in several unnecessary scenes in the second half of the film, giving a negative result to his film.
His idea to introduce two ‘Maha…Maha…like songs’ instead of one, expecting a double bonanza yields nothing in return to his film.
Overall, the film is one good attempt made with so many flaws. It can be rated as ‘Average’ film.
With the encouragement given by Krishnavamsi, Charmi went a step ahead and turned her eyes towards another department in the film industry. She performed well in films like 'Sri Anjaneyam, Chakram and Raakhee' directed by Krishnavamsi and gained a grip on the Telugu language. She was now able to speak good Telugu.
Not only speaking Telugu, she had also lent her voice for Kaajal, one of the heroines of 'Chandamama' directed by Krishnavamsi. It is worth mentioning here that Charmi dubbed her own voice for 'Rakhee' as well earlier.
Krishnavamsi is encouraging almost all the heroines who want to play heroines in Telugu to learn Telugu. Sindhu Menon, who is basically a Malayalee, learnt Telugu by the end of the shooting of her film and dubbed her own voice in the film. Hope all the heroines would emulate Krishnavamsi's heroines and not only learn Telugu but dub their own voices.
2011/2/1 16:22:42 If, one can’t convince the Bollywood sex bomb Mallika Arora to replay her popular item song ‘Munni Badhnam hui’ for Telugu audiences in film ‘Gabbar Singh,’ then who else in southern film circuit has the same caliber of her? Perhaps, Charmi? Yes, this Maha…Maha…girl alone can justify the item song. Power star Pawan Kalyan said to be counted her in for his film Gabbar Singh. So far, Sri Kanth, Charmi and Rebel star Krishnam Raju’s names were under consideration for this film. Pawan Kalyan will play the title role Gabbar Singh in the film. He is also producing this film under his Pawan Kalyan Creations banner. Harish Shankar will direct this film.
