Sada for a Hit After the Break

Though director Tejas Jayam gave her a strong foothold in the industry and Vikrams Aparichitudu made her one of the top heroines, Sada couldn’t cash in on the films. Sada did several other films including Balakrishnas Veerabhadra but none of them could come near the above two in attracting the masses. But, however, Sada has no regrets. I never planned a career in films. But I take in my stride whatever comes,Sada says. Presently shooting for director K Vijayabhaskars Classmates, the actress says, Acting in Classmates was like going back to my college days. I enjoyed the role immensely. Sada is also appearing in R G Vs bilingual flick with Madhavan, and a cameo in Megastar Chiranjeevis Shankardada Zindabad. Interestingly, the actress doesn’t like partying, despite hailing from Mumbai. I love to stay at home and spend time with my family, Sada winds up.


Rekindle RAJIV Murder case

CHENNAI: Sixteen years after a suicide bomber killed Rajiv Gandhi at Sriperumbudur near Chennai, memories of the assassination are revisiting Tamil Nadu.The reason: two Tamil movies titled Kutrapatrikai (chargesheet) and Kuppi (cyanide capsule, in LTTE lingo).While Kutrapatrikai was mired in a legal tangle for 15 years, the makers of Kuppi spent most of their time doing research, to ensure their film was extremely realistic. Kollywood observers say Kutrapatrikai, which laces facts with fiction, is about the LTTE carrying out the Rajiv assassination and, towards the climax, a similar attempt on former Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa being foiled.

Kuppi is about Tiger Sivarasan (played by Marathi stage artiste Ravi Kale) and his six associates evading the police dragnet for 20 days, before ending their lives by ingesting cyanide capsules when their capture was imminent. I have used almost the same locations, names and even dialogues, says director AMR Ramesh.The original Kannada version of Kuppi titled Cyanide- The Inside Story has had a good run in Karnataka and the filmmakers are planning to remake it in Hindi and English, with Amitabh Bachchan playing the role of DR Karthikeyan, who headed the special investigation team that probed the Rajiv assassination.

Karthikeyan, who saw the movie on Tuesday, told DNA that it 3virtually transported him back 16 years.Rajiv Gandhi was personally close to me and hence the subject has a big impact on me. Watching the movie, I almost re-lived those days of investigation,he said. The former CBI director has also authored the book Triumph of Truth .The Rajiv Gandhi Assassination The Investigation, in 2004.
