Road to recovery
Faizal’s road accident some weeks ago had left his father, actor-director Nasser, and the family in deep shock. But now there are positive signs and a sense of relief. Faizal, who was in critical condition, is showing signs of recovery. “He’s recovering steadily…by the grace of the Almighty and the prayers of all his well-wishers,” said an obviously-relieved Nasser.
The Subramaniapuram pair, Jai and Swati, are back again in Vada Curry, which is scheduled to release today. While Jai’s career has been on a steady rise with films like Raja Rani, Swati has appeared in just a couple of films after her debut. Touted as a comic-thriller, one of the highlights of the film directed by Saravana Rajan—a former associate of Venkat Prabhu—is the sensuous dance number shot on Sunny Leone.
Luck be a lady
For Akhil, the 2007 film, Kalloori—with Shankar as producer, Balaji Shaktivel as director and Tamannah as co-star—was an enviable debut vehicle. However, his subsequent films didn’t further his career. Now the actor is keeping his fingers crossed as his new film, Dhanush 5-am Vaguppu (Dhanush Vth Std), releases today. In the flick directed by Kathaga Thirumalavan, Akhil plays a thief whose life takes a turn after he steals a school boy’s lucky charm.
