Kolaiyuthir Kaalam is Tamil version of the film starring Nayanthara.
The film Khamoshi has Prabhu Deva, Tamannaah as Surbhi, Bhumika Chawla, Sanjay Suri, Deepak Anand and Murali Sharma.
In March 2017, Chakri Toleti revealed that his new Bollywood Film is in production with Vashu Bhagnani. The film was shot entirely in London, and within 25 days, the entire shoot of the film was completed. Tamannaah is playing titular role of a deaf and mute girl whereas Prabhu Deva is playing an antagonist. Bhumika Chawla is in a pivotal role in the film.
The music of the film is composed by Shamir Tandon and lyrics are penned by Zeest. Rap was written and performed by Babu Haabi. Zee Music Company holds the rights of music. The film has songs like “Khamoshi”.
Prabhudheva, who has been in active in Bollywood as well as South films, compared the two industries. National Award winner Prabhudheva has been juggling between Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Hindi and Malayalam film industries as a dancer, actor and director. While talking about the South film industries and Bollywood in terms of storyline, Prabhudheva said that everywhere, people were talented and that both ways, goods things were happening. Also, it is not a new trend. Tamil films are also made from Hindi. It’s just that now because of social media, YouTube…so many people are getting to know about it.
Prabhudheva started this year with the Tamil comedy film Charlie Chaplin 2, a sequel to the 2002 movie Charlie Chaplin. His recent release, Devi 2, also happens to be a sequel. His upcoming directorial venture Salman Khan-starrer Dabangg 3 is also a part of a film franchise.
He said that in sequel, the challenges are there, but you have to put in hard work. People expect more. The filmmakers try to give more. So, there is hard work.
Prabhudheva, who is sharing screen space with Tamannaah Bhatia in the film Khamoshi, likes to experiment with different genres. Khamoshi is a thriller. It’s the first time he is doing it, so he is excited. It is something new for him. He wants to see how people react to it. Remember that this multi-talented artiste’s forte lies in dance and action films.
His contribution to the film industry has been huge, which is why he was also honoured with Padma Shri – India’s fourth highest civilian honour, earlier this year. His parents were thrilled about the award he was receiving.
On the work front, Prabhudheva has worked in several commercially successful films including Kadhalan (1994), Minsara Kanavu (1997) and VIP (1997). Kadhalan was dubbed into Hindi as Humse Hai Muqabala and into Telugu as Premikudu.
He will also be seen in Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor’s film Street Dance 3D.
Tamannaah Bhatia also spoke about the uncertainty of Bollywood where everything changes with a Friday. The 29-year-old actor will be seen in Chakri Toleti’s supernatural horror movie “Khamoshi” which also features Prabhu Dheva.
She made her screen debut at the age of 15 and became a star in the south film industry before finding space in Hindi cinema which informed Tamannaah Bhatia about the fickle nature of fame. Born and raised in Mumbai, the actor made her debut with the 2005 Telugu film Sri, followed by her Tamil film Kedi. She achieved success two years later, with Happy Days and Kalloori.
She grew up really fast. She was a sorted and mature individual at that age. She had a strong will to be an actor. She set out to become an actor, ended up being a heroine. She realised stardom is beyond you, it isn’t something you can control. With the kind of extremely loyal fans she has from the south, she feels lucky.
Being driven as a teenager, Tamannaah learned Tamil and Telugu. When she was 15, she was keen on learning Tamil and Telugu. She would refuse to take prompting on the sets and insisted she learn the language.
Navigating an industry almost alien to her made Tamannaah realize the uncertainty of the business. It gives her a big reality check that the lives of film actors are very much Friday-to-Friday, everything changes with it. Some Fridays are good, some not. But the whole idea is to go to another Friday. To keep going.
The actor continued to feature in hit films like Ayan, Paiyaa, Siruthai, 100% Love and the blockbuster franchise Baahubali but at the risk of being stereotyped as the bubbly girl-next-door.
She had meaty roles even in the so-called male-centric films, where a girl is supposed to come, run around the trees and go away. Some of her memorable films are those, where she had song and dance but also a very strong part to play. If you have a stronger part in a commercial film, it has a wider reach. Baahubali was a war film and to get so much space in a film like that was huge. That’s more important for her than doing so-called heroine-centric films.
At her peak, the 29-year-old actor turned towards Bollywood with films like Himmatwala, Entertainment and Humshakals. All three bombed at the box office.
Theoretically, they were the hugest films for that time. But they were not good films. They didn’t do well for legit reasons. Thereafter, she only tried to do films which were exciting to her. She didn’t try to do a Hindi film just because she wanted to do one. Her endeavour is to challenge herself with projects and characters she has not done before, such as her latest, Hindi thriller Khamoshi, in which she plays a deaf and mute girl.
These roles are a natural progression of who she is. Earlier, she had a certain view of cinema to what she was exposed to. Now, she is exposed to cinema from all around the world and has been an actor for these many years. She feels there’s so much more to do.
