Veteran Tamil movie actor-comedian Cyril K Nagesh, popularly known as Nagesh, died in Chennai on Jan 31, 2009, a family source said. He was 77.
Nagesh was suffering from diabetes and a heart ailment, the family member said. He is survived by three sons, including actor Anand Babu.
Nagesh acted in about 1,000 films and is most remembered for his role in Thiruvilayaadal.
STAR TO STATESMAN? Telugu superstar Chiranjeevi formed his political party in August.
Tamil superstar Rajinikanth must enter politics, and he should decide about it now. That message comes from Telugu superstar Chiranjeevi, who formed his own political party this year.
“I think he (Rajinikanth) should have joined politics. I think he should have come (into politics). He has got some much charisma—people expect him,” said Chiranjeevi in an interview.
Asked whether he had discussed the issue with Rajinikanth, he said: “Yes, oh yes! Several times—we discussed it. We discussed it many times. He said when I enter 60 years it would be the right time.”
Chiranjeevi wanted the Tamil actor to decide about joining politics now. “Yes. You are right—something like that,” he said when asked if Rajinikanth should make a decision now.
Rajinikanth has refused to accept his fans’ plea to enter politics at least thrice since 1996. Last month, his fans formed a ‘political party’ but he scolded them and warned no one can “force” him to enter politics.
He also warned of legal action against people using his name for political gains.
“While no one can stop me from entering the political arena, nobody can force me to do so as well. Legal action will be initiated against those who use my name for political ends,” the actor said on October in a statement to media organisations.
Chiranjeevi, who for years had been under similar fan pressure, jumped into politics when he formed the Prajarajyam party in Tirupati on August 26.
Chiranjeevi has promised that his party will work for the poor and the landless but is yet to sketch out a clear political ideology.
Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan, who was admitted to Lilavati Hospital last Saturday following complaints of abdominal pain, was discharged on Friday. He had been in the hospital for a week.
Bachchan was admitted on his birthday, October 11. The Big B was complaining of severe abdominal pain and was diagnosed with incisional hernia.
He went back home in his own car. Son Abhishek and daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai were with him.
The actor has also spoken out on the illness for the first time, mentioning anxiety, pain and sleepless nights, in a post on his blog.
Bachchan, who has been a meticulously regular blogger ever since he started keeping an online journal more than 5 months ago, posted as many as five blog posts on Thursday night, but didn’t give away too many details of his health.
“These days are spent in hospital. In investigation and treatment and anxiety and sleepless nights and pain and… So much more.. But now the nurses exclaim at the time I spend in front of this screen and start pulling plugs out,” Bachchan wrote in his first blog post since he was hospitalised on his 66th birthday.
“I shall fill in these days. Perhaps later when I have the solitude of my convalescence.. My love for you remains steadfast and strong..” he had written.
Bachchan has acted in more than 170 films in a glittering career and is easily one of Indian cinemas most recognisable faces. His son Abhishek and daughter in law Aishwarya too are Bollywood actors. Currently, Bachchan has three projects on the floors, and was in talks for some more.
Fans have been eagerly awaiting the return of Rajini from Goa to be able to hold a meeting where they will request him once again to enter politics. Rajini returned from the Endhiran shoot this morning and made a stunning announcement
He issued a directive saying in no uncertain terms that no fans or fans should be involved in any political activity. Any fan or fan club doing so will be excommunicated. It will be recalled that when some members of the Coimbatore fan club showed signs of political activity, they were asked to leave the fan club.
It would seem that the Superstar is sending a clear message to fans what his pending decision is going to be!
‘தேசிய திராவிட மக்கள் முன்னேற்றக் கழகம்’ என்ற பெயரில் புதிய கட்சி ஆரம்பித்து கொடியையும் அறிமுகப்படுத்தியிருக்கிறார்கள், கோவையைச் சேர்ந்த சில ரஜினி ரசிகர்கள்.
தமிழகம் முழுவதிலும் உள்ள ரஜினியின் ரசிகர்கள் அவர் அரசியலுக்கு வரவேண்டுமென்று கோரிக்கை விடுத்தும் போஸ்டர்கள் ஒட்டியும் தங்கள் விருப்பத்தை தெரிவித்து வருகின்றனர்.
குறிப்பாக, குசேலன் தோல்விக்குப் பிறகு பலரும் ரஜினியின் செல்வாக்கு சரிந்து விட்டதாகக் கூறிக் கொண்டிருக்கும் இந்த் தருணத்தில் தங்கள் தலைவர் அரசியலுக்கு வந்து தனது செல்வாக்கை நிரூபிக்க வேண்டும் என விரும்புகின்றனர்.
ஆனால் ரஜினியோ இந்த நிமிடம் வரை தனது முடிவு குறித்து தெரிவிக்கவில்லை.
சிவப்பு, வெள்ளை, கறுப்பு என 3 நிறங்களைக் கொண்டுள்ள கொடியில் நடுவில் நீல நிறத்தில் நட்சத்திரம் அதன் நடுவே சூப்பர் ஸ்டார் ரஜினி காந்தின் உருவம் பொரிக்கப்பட்டுள்ளது.
கடந்த வாரமே சிரஞ்சீவியின் பிரஜாராஜ்ஜியம் என்ற பெயரையொட்டி, ரஜினி ராஜ்ஜியம் என்ற பெயரில் ரஜினி ரசிகர்கள் கோவை முழுவதும் போஸ்டர்களை ஒட்டி பரபரப்பை ஏற்படுத்தியிருந்தனர் என்பது நினைவிருக்கலாம்.
கோவா ஷூட்டிங் முடிந்ததும் தனது ரசிகர்களைச் சந்திக்கும் ரஜினி இந்த விஷயத்தில் தனது முடிவை அறிவிப்பார் என்ற எதிர்பார்ரபோடும், தமிழகம் முழுக்க இன்னும் பரபரப்பான அரசியல் போஸ்டர்களை அடித்து வருகிறார்கள் ரஜினி ரசிகர்கள்.
