Prabhas donates Rs 1 crore to Andhra CM Relief Fund for flood victims
Actor Prabhas has donated a huge amount of Rs 1 crore to the Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister’s Relief Fund. After the recent floods which caused devastation in some areas of the state, the ‘Baahubali’ actor has donated the money.
Earlier, Prabhas, who is well-known for his generosity apart from his movies, had come forward to donate a whopping amount of Rs 4.5 crore to help the needy during Covid-19. Now that the actor has made a huge donation in favour of flood-hit people in Andhra Pradesh, he is being praised for his generosity.
The Telugu film industry has contributed significantly in the form of donations to help the flood victims. Actors Ram Charan, Mahesh Babu, Jr NTR, Allu Arjun, and others have donated a sizable amount of money.
On the work front, Prabhas is awaiting the release of ‘Radhe Shyam’ which is hitting the marquee on January 14. He will then wrap up his shooting formalities with ‘KGF’ fame Prashanth Neel for their upcoming movie ‘Salaar’ while Om Raut’s ‘Adipurush’ is under production too.
‘KatVic’ wedding: Sisters to attend, but Salman likely to skip it
As the suspense surrounding Salman Khan’s attendance at the much-hyped wedding of Katrina Kaif and Vicky Kaushal grows with every passing minute, the superstar’s family is expected to attend the event. Katrina is said to be close to Khan’s sisters, Arpita and Alvira.
According to sources close to the family, the two sisters will attend the wedding along with their husbands — Arpita’s husband and ‘Antim’ star Ayush Sharma and actor-director Atul Agnihotri (Alvira’s husband).
Katrina is said to have also wanted Salman’s parents to attend the ceremony and shower their blessings to the soon-to-be-wed couple, but they won’t be able to attend the event because of health concerns.
Salman’s Da-bangg concert tour’s dates coincide with Vicky and Katrina’s wedding celebrations. The actor is unlikely therefore to attend the function. Salman has flown to Riyadh with his head of security, Shera, who incidentally is monitoring the ‘KatVic’ wedding security at the Six Senses Fort Barwara in Sawai Madhopur, Rajasthan.
Ram Charan’s new poster from ‘RRR’ is all muscle and action
After launching the new action-packed poster of Jr NTR on Monday, the makers of ‘RRR’ revealed yet another impressive poster of Ram Charan.
The brand new posters unveiled by the makers are being lauded by fans, as they amplify the existing hype around the pan-India project.
Ram Charan, who plays Alluri Sitarama Raju in S.S. Rajamouli’s directorial ‘RRR’, is seen in one of the fiercest avatars in the poster released by the team. Showcasing his ripped physique and six-pack abs, the makers hint at the kind of role Ram Charan is portraying in the movie.
The two posters, which were launched on the same day, have set the action tone for the film through the characters portrayed by Ram Charan and Jr NTR.
The makers, who are leaving no stone unturned to promote this pan-Indian movie, have succeeded in creating anticipation further for the audience wanting more.
‘RRR’ is a fictional story about two Indian revolutionaries, Alluri Sitarama Raju and Komaram Bheem, who fought against the British Raj and Nizam of Hyderabad.
Though the duo do not belong to the same time period, Rajamouli has conveyed that he tried to take the cinematic liberty to create a beautiful, soul-stirring story around the two.
Alia Bhatt, Ajay Devgn, Shriya Saran, and others appear in important roles in ‘RRR’. The movie is all set to hit the screens across the world, on January 7.
