Kamal releases Dev Anand’s autobiography

The trend in the book world nowadays is to ‘release’ a book in multiple cities, to provide that extra publicity. Similar to one he had done before, Kamal released Romancing With Life, the autobiography of veteran Dev Anand. The Hindu’s report included highlights of their own Ram’s speech but not Kamal’s. IndiaGlitz and Behindwoods too carried short reports, with the latter mentioning that Kamal had cancelled a portion of Dasavatharam’s shooting for attending this function. KollywoodToday.com topped it all, with a huge collection of wonderful photos.

The guest list included Jayapradha, Kamal’s co-star most recently in Dasavatharam.

Sila Nerangalil audio launch

Kamal launched the audio of Sila Nerangalil, starring Vincent Ashokan and Navya Nair.

As always, there are more photos to browse through at Behindwoods. KollywoodToday.com has similar photos and a video (that resembles one that is done for wedding receptions).

Kamal in Hyderabad

Kamal was in Hyderabad a few days ago to promote Raghavan, the Telugu-dubbed version of Vettaiyaadu Vilaiyaadu. Idlebrain.com put up some nice pictures, including tight close-ups. IndiaGlitz topped it with its usual array of photos plus a video. The speeches are short, with Kamal talking partly in Telugu. The video itself starts off with the racy title track (in Telugu, of course) playing in the background.

Fans from Hyderabad had lamented that the pre-release publicity for this movie was really low-key. The producers seem to be making up by getting Kamal and Gautham to attend this event now. With the movie trying its luck at a time when twin tragedies have struck Hyderabad, this late effort should help anyway.

IndiaGlitz even reports that Kamal confirmed doing a straight Telugu movie.

Kamal at Srikanth’s wedding reception

Kamal attended actor Srikanth’s wedding reception in Chennai. Readers may recollect that Srikanth memorably rehashed Kamal’s “Ilamai Idho Idho” (Sagalakalavallavan) performance in Parthiban Kanavu. You can find more photos at KollywoodToday.com.

Vegam audio launch & minor clashes

Kamal launched the audio of Vegam, which in turn launches Ashwin, the son of actor SV Shekher.

During the function, there was a minor clash with Silambarasan (in Tamil). That reminded one of SV Shekher criticising Kamal on earlier occasions. At the end of it all, it was heartening to see Kamal being present to encourage the younger generation.

Dasavatharam images: fake & fun

The power of Internet has been used to exploit the curiosity around Dasavatharam. The most visible aspect of it are the images claiming to be Kamal’s ‘avatars’ cropping up. Behindwoods chose to round it off nicely. First, they published a set of real and fake images. Then, they invited readers to produce their own fake ones, using their imagination. Some of them were quite good, while it quickly descended into mediocrity. Take a look nevertheless and have fun till the real ones turn up.

Chennai 600028 celebrations

Kamal was there to encourage the young brigade yet again. This time, it was on the 100th day celebrations of Chennai 600028. It was earlier reported that Kamal would be attending; but later, to everyone’s surprise, Rajni too joined in. Now, it’s becoming all too common to see both of them together! For a change, we had old friends SPB and Gangai Amaran too.

Behindwoods has a lot more photos. IndiaGlitz has a horde along with a video too.

Kamal as George Bush!

After all the murmurs and rumours, here comes the confirmation! Kamal does play George W Bush in Dasavatharam, as blogged by a French lady (via Ragu Damodar) who featured in one of the scenes.

The blog post is in French; so, you could use a bad translation by Google. [Does someone know a better translation tool?] She has praised Kamal; but we can’t really figure out what exactly she’s saying.

She even has a long-shot photo of Kamal as Bush. We can see the green screen behind, which will be used for computer graphics.

Bommalaattam audio release

Bharathiraja is back with Bommalaattam, after yet another hiatus. Kamal and others participated in the audio release function. Here are some photos.


Seen in the above photo are Panchu Arunachalam, Bharathiraja, K Balachander, Illaiyaraaja, Kamal and Arjun (L to R).

Kamal and Bharathiraja go back a long way, of course. Bharathiraja provided the opportunity for Kamal to experiment in 16 Vayadhinile and Sigappu Rojakkal.
