Nara daughter-in-law Brahmini, who is carrying baby, was spotted bonding with brother-Nandamuri scion Mokshagna. Both brother and sister were in jovial mood celebrating happy moments.
Rumour mill is abuzz that the duo was spotted on the eve of Brahmini's Seemantam, a ritual usually followed during odd pregnancy months like 3rd month, 5th month, 7th month and 9th month. However, there were no proofs that it was Brahmini's Seemantham. Whatever, both Brahmini and Mokshagna striking a pose is certainly a feast for the fans of Nara and Nandamuri families.
Reports from Tollywood say that Trisha and Rana Daggubati, who were going around as a cute pair, have separated due to some ‘misunderstanding’. Rana, who starred in Ajith’s Arrambam, is younger to Trisha but was rumoured to be in love with her.
Ragini Dwivedi, who starred in ‘Jayam’ Ravi’s Samuthirakani-directed Nimirndhu Nil, is said to be the reason for the split in relationship between Rana and Trisha. The couple’s relationship had never been steady and it was always the case of ‘on-again’ and ‘off-again’. Rana’s name, in particular, had been linked with many actresses in the past including a leading Bollywood starlet.
After meeting for the first time at an awards ceremony, it is said that Rana and Ragini started sharing pleasantries and calling each other regularly. In no time, Rana and Ragini started meeting frequently in Hyderabad and this apparently led to the break-up of Rana with Trisha.
Trisha, who was not aware of Rana’s new relationship, was upset when she heard about his regular meetings with Ragini when she was out in Chennai to shoot her Ajith-starrer Yennai Arindhaal.. This became the reason for their separation, it is said. Hints of their break-up were confirmed after Rana and Trisha ‘unfollowed’ each other on Twitter a few weeks ago.

When you entered the industry, there were very few youth oriented films in Malayalam. But nowadays every film seems to be youth centric. What do you have to say about the trend?
I came into the industry through the film Nammal, which had four youngsters. It was one of the films that started off the trend. I was a part of plenty more, like Swapnakkoodu, Chadikkatha Chanthu, Lollypop, Robinhood etc. I don't think there has been such a huge change over the years. The recent movies that I did, Ezhamathe Varavu, Honeybee, Polytechnic and now, Angry Babies are all different in their own way. I have been lucky to have done all kinds of roles and escaped any kind of stereotyping.
Why do you do just one or two films a year?
When I'm approached for a film, I look at the whole team, the director, producer etc. Even if I'm okay with the team, I wouldn't do a film unless I like the story and script and vice-versa too. I've left out big projects at times because of this. But I have absolutely no issues with new directors. Many of the films I have done are with newbies.
Your looks have evolved beyond recognition over the past 10 years... I did my first film at the age of 15, when I had no idea about make-up or styling or fashion. I wasn't bothered about them for many years and also, no senior actress ever told me that I should change. Even those who I asked for help never supported me. It was maybe at the age of 19-20 that I myself realised that I should change. I educated myself and learnt everything about fitness, make-up and style, all by myself. And now, when young girls ask me tips and tricks, I am so glad they ask and am only happy to help them.
In your latest release, Angry Babies, your co-star is Anoop Menon, again... How do you explain the coincidence? Anoop and I had already acted in Trivandrum Lodge, where the chemistry worked out really well. As a co-star, I feel very comfortable with Anoop ettan, more than comfortable, actually.
You revealed that you are in a relationship... With many Malayalam actresses getting married recently, don't you feel like taking the leap?
Yes, I am seeing someone but I can't say at this point where it's going or whether it will lead to marriage. If at all I marry, I plan to do so next year. But I feel it is better to get married when I am ready for it, not because others are doing it or under pressure from society or other people. I never take any decision that way. Because if there are any problems, none of these people will be there; there will be just me and my family to face it. At the end of the day, I live for myself, not for others. I will listen to everyone but the final decision will be mine.
What about the whole debate on whether actresses should act after marriage?
Do you see any actor stopping acting after marriage? The film industry is not something dirty that you should stop acting after you marry. Having said that, it is each person's personal decision, I feel. I have always maintained that I will never say goodbye to films completely. Kajol, Madhuri Dixit, Aishwarya Rai and Sreedevi have all done good roles after marriage. If I get good roles, I too will definitely take them up. Not that I will do anything and everything which comes my way, but then, I don't do that now either. If I get offered a film which I like, which I feel I shouldn't miss, I will I do it, just like now.
And I will marry only someone who recognises acting as my profession and someone who will encourage me and support me to do a good film, like a good friend, not a narrow-minded person who thinks on the lines of - from now on, stay at home and look after me and do nothing else.
Is there anything like you won't marry someone from the film industry... If I fall in love with an actor or filmmaker, what's wrong with it? Cinema is something I have been doing since age 15. And whatever anyone says, I have never had even one bad experience with the industry. I really love this profession; it has given me everything, made me what I am. So I have absolutely no aversion towards people from the film industry. I would love a person for the human being he is; on the basis of his personality, not on the basis of his profession.
What are you working on next?
I will be doing two Malayalam films and one Kannada film this year, but the official agreement is not over yet.

Julian Assange's Swedish lawyers on Tuesday filed a court petition to withdraw an arrest warrant for the WikiLeaks founder who has spent two years at Ecuador's London embassy to avoid extradition to Sweden.
Assange faces allegations of sexual assault and rape in Sweden, which he denies. He says he fears Sweden could in turn extradite him to the United States to be tried for one of the largest leaks of classified information in U.S. history.
Thomas Olsson, one of Assange's lawyers, said the arrest warrant should be repealed because it cannot be enforced while Assange is in the embassy and the Swedish prosecutor had not considered the possibility of interrogating him in London. "In light of the significant impact this has on Assange's ability to move freely and to live a normal life, we think that it is unreasonable to uphold the decision," Olsson told Reuters.
"As I see it, the arguments for the unreasonableness of the situation are very strong, so we have very strong hopes that the court will change the decision." Ecuador, which has granted Assange political asylum, wants London to assure him safe passage to Quito. But Britain has surrounded the Ecuadorean embassy with police officers round the clock ready to detain him if he leaves it. The South American country said last week that talks with Britain over Assange were at an impasse.

Mohammed Shami weds Kolkata Girl, Dad Says Lady Luck Will Smile in England
Mohammed Shami has married his model girl-friend Hasin Jahan at a private ceremony in Moradabad on Friday. The 24-year-old Shami, who lives in Kolkata and plays Ranji Trophy for Bengal, met Hasin at an Indian Premier League event a couple of years ago. Like many international sportspersons, Shami too took a liking for models. Speaking to sports.ndtv.com, Shami's father Tauseef Ahmed said the Nikkah was at 4 pm and the reception was at 7 in the evening. It was a family affair and some close friends were invited. "We didn't invite Shami's Indian teammates as we were not sure about their schedule. The family will plan a reception either in Kolkata or Delhi depending on when the players are available," said Ahmed.
Shami has been rested for the three ODIs versus Bangladesh later this month. He will be part of the attack on the long tour of England starting July. Known for his reverse swing, Shami has played six Tests so far, bagging 27 wickets with a best of 5/47 against the West Indies at Eden Gardens in November 2013. "Playing for India is very important for Shami. He has done well on the tours of South Africa and New Zealand and should do well in England too," said Ahmed. Lady Luck should also bless the Bengal seamer, who has also played 29 ODIs for India, taking 50 wickets with best figures of 4 for 50 against New Zealand in Napier in January this year.

Bollywood actor Alia Bhatt who is a very busy girl these days has finally disclosed the secret behind the 'Pataka' tattoo that she got inked on the nape of her neck. Alia who is currently shooting for her upcoming film with Varun Dhawan named Humpty Sharma ki Dulhaniya, was spotted sporting the tattoo since a few months.
All talks of her tattoo went in the direction of her then upcoming film 'Highway', since the film has a song titled 'Pataka guddi' in it. Now Alia has put all speculations to rest and revealed that the tattoo is to commemorate the 'Pataka' Punjabi girl's character that she will be playing in Humpty Sharma ki Dulhaniya. Alia apparently feels that having the tattoo makes her feel more connected to the character and personality of her role.
Humpty Sharma ki Dulhaniya, directed by Shashank Khaitan, seems to be a joyride of laughter, fun, emotions, drama and some action a la a typical Bollywood potboiler. The film, releasing July 11, features Alia and Varun in truly 'desi' avatars.
