When it comes to the United States and UK, Bollywood films always triumph. But for a change, this time Jiiva's Ko, directed by K.V. Anand, got a super opening at the US box office. The film collected $ 70,400 on 11 venues [early estimates], with an average of $ 6,400 per screen.
"Thank u all for your whooping support for Ko. All your appreciations gone to my heart. All my mistakes, slips u pinpointed gone to my mind," an overwhelmed Anand tweeted.
In UK, the film released in almost 15 centres, beating Shah Rukh Khan's My Name Is Khan, which released in 10 centres.
This is the new age of gadgets and technology and usually, the cine folks are a lot into it.However, the heavy duty bombshell Namitha doesn’t belong to that group.
It is heard that Namitha is comfortable with her single cell phone and maintains that she is not a gadget freak. She also revealed that she doesn’t have a laptop.
Soon, she will be seen in a new movie to be directed by Sakthi Chidambaram. This is slated to be a sci-fi movie.

The third schedule for Nanban is proceeding at a brisk pace. Today the shoot was at Ampa Valley (Skywalk) Mall situated in Ponamallee High Road. Some scenes with Vijay and Ileana were shot. Vijay looked very youthful and handsome wearing cool blue jeans and a tee. Ileana looked lovely and was wearing a trendy outfit that showed off her curves to maximum advantage.
The shoot had to be held in the midst of tight security as a huge crowd gathered to catch a glimpse of the stars. Shankar was very strict and sent crew members around to issue instructions to the crowd. Onlookers were asked not to use their cameras or video recorders.
Vijay did the scenes like the consummate professional he is and took only three takes to perfect the shot. Ileana had a little more difficulty as she struggled with her Tamil but in the end, the director was satisfied.
Harris Jayaraj is almost finished with the music and the audio will be released soon.
Deepika Padukone is considered one of the most beautiful women in this country but even her phenomenal looks are insufficient for a Superstar movie. The first schedule of Rana was supposed to begin but Rajinikanth felt that Deepika’s look was not satisfactory. He had a word with KS Ravikumar and expressed his concerns.
The film has a complex plot that supposedly covers three generations; therefore, the look and feel of the film has to be authentic. Rajinikanth felt that Deepika has to look like the typical South Indian belle with a simple yet radiant beauty. Her supermodel looks are not suitable for the character. The shooting has been delayed and will resume once the make-up department finalizes Deepika’s new look.
