Mahesh Babu


Mahesh babu is on Twitter!! 



This small  bit of news has just made my week, maybe even my month and I have almost forgiven him for disappearing from films and giving us only his ads (great as they are)  for the last 2 and 1/2 years. Still can’t stop grinning.


Does this deserve a whole new blog post?..I say… hell yea!


Not only that, his next was confirmed for an August 9th release, which is his birthday.


This is too exciting!

It may sound shocking but from May 1, 2010 no new releases in other languages (Tamil, Hindi, and English) will be allowed in Kerala simultaneously with the all India release.


Film Distributors Association Kerala (FDAK) has decided to implement this controversial decision to clip the wings of other language films (OLF) in Kerala.


Remember in the last few months films like Avatar, 2012, Vinnayithaandi Varuvaaya, Vettaikaran, 3 Idiots, My Name Is Khan has done fantastic business in Kerala.


For example if a Tamil film like Vijay’s Sura is to release worldwide on May 1, it cannot release simultaneously in Kerala! As per the new order of FDAK, OLF can release in Kerala only two weeks after its worldwide release. It smacks of protectionism, and a subtle effort to scuttle the popularity of OLF in Kerala.
