#BiggBoss14: My heart really broke when I couldn't be one of the Bigg Boss finalists, says Eijaz Khan
Eijaz Khan's Bigg Boss journey came to an abrupt end when the Yeh Moh Moh Ke Dhaagey actor had to opt out of the reality show midway due to his professional commitments. And even though Eijaz had finished his commitments, the Tara From Satara actor couldn't go inside the house in time to participate in the show. "There are different reasons why my journey inside the Bigg Boss house came to an end sooner than anyone expected. I really thought, with all humility, I deserved to be a Bigg Boss finalist! Agar mujhse ya kisi aur se bhi poocho, they all saw me as a finalist. I wanted to be the person jo Bigg Boss ki lights ko switch off kare. My heart really broke when I couldn't be one of the show finalists," shares an emotional Eijaz. So why couldn't he re-enter the reality show even though he had mentioned that he was over with his professional commitments well in time, we wonder? "The makers of the show will always keep the show's interest the highest priority. I finished off my work on February 6 and the makers knew about it. So even though, as much as I would have liked to be inside the house, I would still have to finish the quarantine period and then there would have been hardly any days left for the show to end. There were millions of supporters writing to me daily on social media to re-enter. Agar mere haath mein hota toh main darwaze ke aage tent laga ke baith jaata. I was feeling so disappointed. I am a producer's actor and so I knew their dillemma. They had built my brand, from the Bigg Boss show's perspective," he adds.
So he will be going for the finale? "Well, I hope so! I want to see everyone once, I want to meet Salman Khan bhai once, I would like to hug all the contestants once," he says.
Unfortunately, in the past too, Eijaz had to opt of a dance reality show because of his shoulder injury. So somewhere does he feel his reality show journey is jinxed? "No...I create my own luck and mere haathon ki lakeerein mehnat se bani hain. Main 100 per cent shiddat se sab kuchh karta hoon. Even while participating in Jhalak, I had an accident where my partner fell on my shoulder when I was lifting her, and the shoulder got dislocated and I had to undergo surgery. Unfortunately, the same injury resurfaced in the Buzzer Task inside the Bigg Boss house. The nature of the task was such that the inmates had to move my hand and in the process it got dislocated again, twice. If people realize, every time I used to walk, I would make faces, and that was because of the pain, though people used to make fun about that inside the house," he shares.
Young beauty Krithi Shetty has made a memorable debut in Tollywood with the recently released romantic drama, Uppena. Even as the film continues its solid run at the box-office, Krithi has already begun shooting for her second big Telugu film, Shyam Singha Roy.
Now, if the latest buzz is anything to go by, Krithi may soon sign her maiden Kollywood project. Apparently, this talented beauty is the frontrunner to play the female lead opposite hero Ram in his just announced Tamil-Telugu-Tamil bilingual film under Lingusamy’s direction. An official confirmation regarding Krithi’s inclusion in the cast is awaited.

SS Rajamouli did the unthinkable with his Baahubali series. The historic drama Baahubali turned out to be a huge hit not just in India but also internationally. Currently Rajamouli is busy in his upcoming magnum opus RRR, which boasts an ensemble cast including Ram Charan, Jr NTR, Shriya Saran, Olivia Morris, Alia Bhatt and Ajay Devgn. Since SSRajamouli has cemented his place across the country with Baahubali series, the makers are confident of selling RRR for a record price. But RRR helmer SS Rajamouli failed to break his own record which he created with Baahubali in the term of pre release business.
According to the latest update, the Tamil Nadu theatrical rights of RRR were sold for Rs 42 Cr to Lyca Productions. The production house Lyca is known for producing and distributing big Tamil movies like Vada Chennai, Darbar, 2.0 and other big budget entertainers. Talking about its distribution amount, SS Rajamouli’ magnum opus RRR failed to beat Baahubali: The Conclusion, which was sold at Rs 47 Cr in Tamil Nadu.
RRR, which is a big budget film, is being bankrolled by DVV Danayya, is a fictitious tale based on two Telugu freedom fighters – Alluri Seetharama Raju and Komaram Bheem.
Vishal starrer thriller drama ‘Chakra’, which is directed by debutant MS Anandan, is hitting the theaters today on 19th February. The movie features U Turn fame Shraddha Srinath, Regina Cassandra, Robo Shankar, and others in the crucial roles. The film is bankrolled by Vishal himself and the music is scored by Yuvan Shankar Raja. Let’s see the story of Chakra.
Story: 50 robberies done on 73rd Independence Day. One of the robberies is registered at military officer Chandru alias Subhash Chandra Bose (Vishal) house too. Chandru and Gayatri (Shraddha Srinath) start investigating the robbery case. During the robbery, Chandru found that the Ashoka Chakra Medal, which was granted to his father, was stolen. What happens next? How does Chandru solve the case? Form rest of the story.
- Regina Cassandra
- Cyber crime backdrop
- Run Time
Performance: Chakra is a movie that deals with the concept of cyber crimes and hacking and Vishal has already acted in a movie similar to this – Abhimanyudu. Regina Cassandra as Leela, a chess coach and computer hacker is the villain and she justifies with her role. Shraddha Srinath comes up with a clean performance, as Gayathri. The rest of the cast of Charka are ok.
Technical: The writing is not very strong and too convenient. Regina Cassandra is shown as a strong chess player but what makes Chandru (Vishal) defeat her easily hangs as a big question mark. Yuvan Shankar Raja’s background score is the main asset of this film Chakra. The background score is pulsating and plays an integral part in this film. The runtime of Chakra is one of the major issues , as it should have ended at least 15-20 minutes before where it actually ends. The cinematography is flawless and the editing by Ruban is ok.
Analysis: Chakra – A Cat and mouse game between a military man and a cyber crime gang.
Drishyam that released in 2013 is the highest-grossing flicks in the Malayalam film industry. The film stars Mohan Lal, Meena in the lead roles. Jeetu Joseph has directed the original. Drishyam mixes the family, thriller genres effectively. Drishyam was later remade into many languages and the end result is the same – blockbuster.
Now, after seven years, a sequel to this film is made. All the major cast and crew from the first part worked for the sequel as well. The sequel Drishyam 2 got released directly on the OTT platform Amazon Prime. The film is getting rave reviews. Everyone who watched the film is giving a positive response.
It is said that Drishyam 2 is the perfect sequel. The last 30 minutes of the film are filled with lots of twists. Mohan Lal has yet again given a commendable performance.
Uppena girl Krithi Shetty aka Bebamma is now one of the most happening names in Tollywood right now. Her looks and acting prowess bagged praises from critics and audiences alike. The makers of Ram Pothineni and Linguswamy are considering Krithi Shetty for their film. This is going to be an interesting combination as both Ram and Krithi look easy on eyes.
Although the film is a Oorra Mass film with stylish elements, it is said to have equal importance to love. The hero-heroine’s chemistry is expected to be crucial. And hence, Linguswamy and Ram are considering Krithi’s name for their next. Since it’s a Telugu-Tamil bilingual, Krithi would get a launch in Tamil.
However, the talks are in a nascent phase. More details are awaited. The film will be made on a grand scale by the makers of U-Turn, Black Rose and Seetimaarr.
Panja Vaishnav Tej, Kriti Shetty, Buchi Babu Sana… combination of three new talents should have never expected such a big applause for Uppena as the film entered into 70 Crores gross club and is all set to join 100 Crores very soon.
Uppena from Mythri Movies and Sukumar Writings has witnessed positive feedback from day one. May it be the blockbuster musical album from Devi Sri Prasad or the depth in story line as propagated in early promotions, Uppena was always on headlines.
Beating all the odds of Corona, Telugu cinema has got a new ray of hope in the form of Uppena. Still a long way to go with steady collections reported from all over in domestic and overseas markets too.
