And everything is fine between them, Rana apologies Viram and his fans on tweeter saying…. “Spoke to actor Vikram finally, says its a misquote from what he actually said. Glad the air is cleared apologies to him and his fans for my harsh reaction,” wrote Rana.

Viktram recentely said, One major reason why most South Indian superstars, from Rajnikanth and Kamal Haasan to the late-comers Suriya and Rana Daggubati have been unable to make appropriate headway in Bollywood is their inadequate command over the Hindi language. He also said , Rana started his career in the Telugu industry and came to Bollwood but he hadn’t made any headway in the south. Now he’s not bothered about TFI.

These statements made Rana to react on public forum like twitter with his tweets, … Dear Mr.Vikram I see you quote me and my directions in quite a few media interactions of yours recently. It is best if you focus on your Career that isn’t headed in the right direction with close to 10 odd disasters in your kitty I’m barely 2 1/2yrs old as an actor and You are almost close to 25yrs.

Rana First Look in Rudramadevi

Handsome hunk Rana Daggubati, who made an impressive performance with Krish Jagarlamudi's 'Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum', has become more choosy in his roles.

Rana who debuted with Sekhar Kammula's 'Leader' haven't tasted the kind of success he wanted yet. Meanwhile, he did act in Bollywood films like 'Dum Maro Dum' and Ram Gopal Varma's 'Department' which haven't change his fate.

But he is confident that his future is promising as he has singed Rajamouli's 'Bahubali' which stars Prabhas in the lead role where Rana will be seen as antagonist.

The latest buzz is that he has signed Anushka-starrer 'Rudramadevi' which is being directed and produced by Guna Sekhar. Rana plays the male lead role opposite Anushka Shetty. Rana will be reprising the role of Chalukya Veerabhadra, the prince of Nidavardhya Puram (Nidadavolu).

Director Guna Sekhar has confirmed the news. He said, "I've roped in Rana after watching his previous film 'KVJ'."

Touted to be India's first stereoscopic 3D venture, the movie is being made with international technical values.

Interestingly, Rana's upcoming biggies are periodical films in the backdrop of historic background.


Daggubati Rana Becoming Producer?

The towering hunk Daggubati Rana has got every aspect to become a top range superstar but the only thing lacking in him is his acting skills. Whether he has begun working on that or has he decided to shift the line we don't know but there is a new gossip making rounds that Rana has begun focusing on film production.

As part of that, it is heard that Rana has been sharing his thoughts with friends in Mumbai that he would be producing the Telugu and English versions of the critically acclaimed gangster flick in Tamil 'Aaranya Kaandam'. The film brought National Award to its director Thiagarajan Kumararaja and also to the editor.

Sources say Rana has already watched the film and expressed interest in associating with Thiagarajan. So, if he gets into becoming a producer and that too a bilingual then it does mean something. As of now, Rana's stint as an actor would be for the film 'Bahubali' directed by the tough taskmaster S S Rajamouli.


Villain In Rajamouli's Film Is...

Rana who was a hero till recently is changing into a villain. It is heard that in the new movie of Rajamouli starring Prabhas, the villain is none other than Rana. Buzz is that he is also growing beard for that. However, when asked about it, Rana is reportedly evading that question.

Meanwhile, it is heard that Rajamouli is all thrilled because he managed to get a villain whose height is equal to that of Prabhas. It now remains to be seen whether Rana who was unsuccessful as a hero will click as a villain or not.

The final touch is, Rana is reportedly sharing thoughts that though he is doing a negative role he will continue doing hero roles in other projects.


Rana roped for Rajamouli-Prabhas project

Tollywood hunk Rana will be sen in Rajamouli, Prabhas prestigious project. The movie is a bilingual film with a budget of Rs 70 crores.

According to sources, Rajamouli narrated the script to Rana and after hearing the script, Rana has decided to act in the big project.Rana who is interested in playing different roles will be seen as villain in this movie.

Rajamouli who was very much impressed with Rana’s performance in his latest film ‘Krishnam Vande Jagat Guru’ has decided to give this chance to Rana. With this the expectations on the film raised still higher.


Rana's Tamil film stalled?

According to rumour mill, the much talked about venture of Daggubati Rana and Tamil director Selva Raghavan is stalled. However, there is no confirmation whether the project is shelved permanently or not. After his recent film 'Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum' tanked at the box-office, it looks like Rana is very cautious in accepting any script.

According to close aides of the actor, Rana is not satisfied with the outline of the story now and unhappy about how the script has shaped. So sources say that Rana has sidelined the project with Selva Raghavan. The other version doing rounds is that there are no issues between the actor-director and that both would come together again very soon.

Selva is currently busy with his latest film 'Irandam Ulagam' with Arya and Anushka in the lead, it might take some time for him to get back to the script work of Rana's film. It is also being said that Selva Raghavan is preparing for his next with his younger brother Dhanush.

One Lakh Crores Means Gali, Not Jagan

Each time the word one lakh crores is heard in Political circuits, the immediate name we connect to is YS Jagan. Because many political parties keep on blasting that Jagan has amassed wealth more than one lakh crores and that is why he was kept in jail. But here is another angle to that 'one lakh crores'.

Whenever ace writer and director Posani Krishnamurali meets any media person these days, the first question he is getting posed is the same. Every channel is asking him who is that guy behind the creation of 'Reddeppa' character in 'Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum'? A channel went a step further today, asking him if it is Jagan or Gali Janardhan Reddy. Posani was in a tight spot and finally came up with an answer.

'Mining baron Gali Janardhan Reddy's assets are seized and it is already proved by CBI that he amassed more than one lakh crores. When it comes to cases on Jagan, still they are not proved. And, director Krish never spoke about either Gali or Jagan while talking about this character', said Posani. Means he is saying that Gali might have been the inspiration behind 'Reddeppa' character.

Well, Posani happens to be joining hands with YSR-Congress for the forthcoming 2014 elections. So Posani should give more clarity regarding 'Reddeppa' if he wants to, rather these bits and pieces.


Nayanthara praises Rana & Krish

Nayanthara who played a journo role in Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum had a equally important role as that of hero which was very challenging and Nayan proved herself yet again with her performance.

Nayanthara has been receiving appreciation for her role in Krish’s ‘Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum’ in which she has given her own voice. The movie is successfully running at all centers with good capacity crowd

Nayanthara in a press conference held in Film Nagar yesterday spoke to media like this ” I am very thankful to Krish. He was the only one who had faith in me that I could dub for the role as I am not a Telugu girl.Coming to Rana, he is very professional.He used to encourage me every time.In all the co-stars I acted with he is the best one.


YSRC wants to take revenge for Rana’s KVJ

Rana’s latest sensation Krishanam Vande Jagatgurum turns into political fight as the news spread that one of the Telugu Deasam party leader has financed the movie.

Pilla congress leaders promised to give a tough answer through up coming films and show their strength as they believe cinema medium will have strong impact on people. Earlier they have match fixed with Puri Jagannath to show YSR as hero in his film with Pawan Kalyan’s ‘Cameraman Gangatho Rambabu’ .

Krish Missing Farm House Party?

Farm house parties are something where one will expect many things to happen including high profile guests, flowing liquor and dancing people. Seems like, our creative director is missing one such happening in the city.

Director Krish is busy celebrating the success of 'Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum'. The director felt that KVJ is his first commercial success as there is no drop in figures at any centre. However, he has been missing the super exciting farm-house party on the outskirts of city. The party is hosted by none other than hero Rana, as this film happens to be his first success too. While speaking with a TV channel, Krish revealed that Rana is busy celebrating, but he is missing it as he has taken the task of promoting movie and attending interviews at various channel offices.

More than the excitement and entertainment he will get from that farm house party, Krish will be surely feeling the kick of KVJ and its commercial success anyway.

Rana’s KVJ massive release outnumber Aamir’s Talaash

In the movie, Rana is paired opposite actress Nayanathara, who plays a journalist. Rana is said to have done some daredevil scenes without using a body double.


KVJ Release: A Focus

The clock is ticking for a much talked about film to take the litmus test. We are talking about the film ‘Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum’ hitting the screens on November 30th. As is the natural process, many have started discussing on the strengths and weakness of the film.

On the bright side, the expectations are high on this film and there is no threat of a parallel release for nearly two weeks. It remains to be seen how much it can make use of this advantage. If the film’s budget is high and it gets an average talk then it would spell trouble at the box office.

As such, Daggubati Rana has no hit record so it is only director Krish’s track record which should work. His presence is high among the class audience. Then there is Nayantara factor for masses. Rana factor also exists for a set of girls. That way packaging is good but then content is something important.

The trailer got a mixed response and some said they were unable to understand the dialogues. Those who didn’t understand felt there is something special about the film. Few others said some art film flavor is seen. But director Krish mixes both art and commercial flavor in his films and that’s his specialty. Let us wait for November 30th and see what happens.


Babai,Abbai with Item Bomb

Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum featuring Rana & Nayantara. This film directed by Krish will release on 30 November worldwide which features a Item song ‘Sye Andre Naanu’ with Venkatesh , Rana and Sameera.

Both Babai and Abbai rocked the floor with their dance in pataka style. This song will also become hit like recent Item song Sukku Bai in Nagarjuna’s ‘Dhamarukam’. ‘Sye Andre Naanu’ song is mix of Telugu Kannada words and music is catchy.

KVJ is all set to release on November 30th, Rana Daggubati as B.Tech Babu,Nayantara as Devika is a story of stage artist and mining mafia. Music by Mani Sharma and directed by Krish.


Rana partied with Charan's Heroine?

Rana Daggubati, the Tollywood casanova, will always be as close as possible to the hot beauties. After taking a break for sometime, he is back in his usual best again!

The strong buzz is that Rana Daggubati partied with Priyanka Chopra who is in Hyderabad for the shoot of Ram Charan's Bollywood launch vehicle Zanjeer. Known for her friendly nature, PC got along very well with the Tollywood hunk just few minutes after their first meeting in a local club. They seemed to be extremely comfortable in each others company and also both of them shaked their legs for few pacey tunes. His close friend Sania Mirza and actress Shruti Hassan (shooting for Balupu in the city) to were in the same club. After spending few hours, the B-town beauty left the place due to her other commitments.

Any how, Rana is in a safe zone this time as no one would believe if the rumormongers want to spread the reports he having an affair with a Bollywood top actress and that too Priyanka. So, Priyanka will no way join the list of Richa, Bipasha, Shriya and Trisha.

Rana Says 'Claps' Cannot Be Eaten

When a group of audiences appreciate your talent and clap continuously, you may get excitement, but will that fill your stomach? Rana says something about this and the dialogue looks mesmeric.

A dialogue by Rana has elevated the feel of 'Krishnam Vande Jagadguram' again. In the latest teaser, Tollywood hunk says that 'Claps are good for listening, but not for eating'. 'Chappatlu Vinadaaniki baaguntai, kaani tinadaaniki kaadu'. With the unexpected arrival of films like 'Damarukam' and 'Routing Love Story', the release of KVJ was pushed back, but the hype of this film is not getting pale. And, with philosophical dialogues like this, hero Rana and director Krish are sounding strong that their film will be a perfect treat.

On the other hand, two hyped movies that are theatres now are said to be not entertaining all sections of audiences. So, still there is a chance for a movie to occupy 'blockbuster' slot and we have to see what KVJ will do.

‘Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum’ is reportedly set against the mining mafia and its atrocities.


Huge Advantage for Rana's KVJ

In the last 3 months or so, we have witnessed films with over 2.30 minutes runtime drawing mixed response at the Box Office. Best example are the films like Life Is Beautiful, Rebel and Brothers which are categorized as neither bad nor good. Even critics too have opined that if editing could have been proper, the viewing experience of the film might have greatly improved.

Rana's Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum is bound to have an additional advantage, despite taking on another biggie Damarukam. Although the film is a blend of various genres like action adventure, romance and mythology, Director Krish has succeeded in keeping it's length shorter and his past experience as an editor played a big role here. "The runtime of KVJ is only 2 hr 10 minutes. Thanks to Krish prior experience as an editor. He only shoots what's required for the film," confirms Rana.

Shorter runtime will improve the viewing experience and also increases the repeat value, which plays a huge role in the success of any film. Seems like everything has fallen in place for Rana and Krish!


Rana Guest Role In Big Bollywood Movie

Filmmakers have been offering some exciting roles to Rana Daggubati irrespective of his past successes and failures, if not the lead at least guest appearances in their films.

Rana's friendly and easy going nature too playing big role. This Tollywood hunk's next Hindi film would be Ayan Mukherji's Yeh Jawani Yeh Deewani starring Bollywood heartthrob Ranbir Kapoor and hottie Deepika Padukone. He will appear for a brief portion in the film, just like a cameo. Yeh Jawani Yeh Deewani is one of the much-awaited films of the year as former lovebirds Ranbir and Deepika have teamed up o set the screens on fire.

Notably, Rana is also doing a guest appearance in Ajith-Nayantara's Tamil flick and his bilingual project with Selvaraghavan under his home banner Suresh Productions will go to the floors soon.

Rana's career graph in Tollywood will depend on the fate of Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum. No doubt in saying this promising actor will be waiting with bated breath for it's release, as he strongly believes that this is one film which could take him into the big league. Wait for few more days to know if this Daggubati hero remains just as an actor or turns into a star!


Rana uses Chiru's Name to defend himself!

Despite working under renowned directors like Puri Jagannath, Sekhar Kammula and Rohan Sippy (Dum Maaro Dum), Rana Daggubati failed to score his first commercial success until now. Whom should be blamed for this situation? Is it the choice of films Rana made? or His inability to reach out to the masses?

When quizzed about the same, Rana shot back,"Is there any guarantee that every film will become a blockbuster? Chiranjeevi garu has done 150 films upto now and in that, hardly 40 were super hits which are instrumental in establishing him as a star. I would never sign a film based on the calculations of how much it would collect, instead focuses on what I will learn from it".

Rana should realize a thing or two here. Film Making is like any other business and Commercial Viability is very crucial here to survive, plus no producer would pour money into his films just to make him learn something. If this Tollywood hunk continues his flop streak, then producers may back out and that situation will mount pressure on Suresh Babu to rescue his Son.


Rana takes inspiration from NTR

Legend NTR is the person whom all the Telugus have a special place in their hearts. He showed the right path to many people in different ways. Here come another such story ...

Rana Daggubati who is playing the role of theatre artist in his upcoming film Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum got inspired from Viswa Vikyatha Nata Sarvabhouma. "In my opinion, Dana Veera Sura Karna is like bible for Telugu Cinema. That film is a complete package of our culture and NTR portrayed three roles brilliantly. I took him as an inspiration for my role in Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum," said the actor.

In Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum, Rana will be seen enacting the roles of Narasimha Avatar, Ghatochkachudu, Abhimanyudu and Thota Ramudu. The actor observed the life style of theatre artistes and few dramas to get into the skin of his character in the film. "The play 'Khurukshetram' in Ravindra Bharathi moved me, as I witnessed 40 artistes performing on the stage for 6 people in the audience gallery. This is really sad," he opined.

Vekatesh who saw the first copy of the film recently appreciated Rana by saying 'Manchi Chance Kottesavura ...''. Seems like, Rana is going to score his first solid hit soon!


Life Or Death: 3 Lives @ 1 Movie

With release date being finalized for 'Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum', three lives that are waiting for a big change in their career are in tension. This flick got all ingredients to become a super hit but still the shady pasts of our talented celebrities are haunting it.

Life 1: Hunk Rana is not scoring a hit in Telugu Industry irrespective of the mileage he is getting. Two super directors including Puri Jagan and Sekhar Kammula failed to give him a hit. His big background factor, macho appeal and different selection of movies failed to create any impact. If at all Rana wants to prove his commercial stamina, Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum is the only movie.

Life 2: Curvaceous Nayantara almost reached a peak when she took sudden exit from tinsel town. With starlets like Tamanna, Samantha and Kajal occupying the top-spot, only the success-story of KVJ will make Nayan big in Tollywood. Also, if this movie result gets toppled, Nayan will be branded as iron leg too. Even our hot-girl also showed no restrictions on skin-show front to make most out of this flick.

Life 3: Creative Krish is not getting a good commercial break even after delivering two most talked about movies of Tollywood. 'Gamyam' and 'Vedam' have won awards and praise, but Krish failed to get any producer who can bet on him with confidence. This is due to the lack of commercial success, but Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum is sending feelers that he is getting a break for sure. Social messages and philosophies will interest producers only if they get profits. So, it is an acid test for Krish.

November 9th will decide the fate of this movie when hits theatres, and in turn it will decide the life our three-talented-stars.


Aunties naughty whispering on that hero

When a young, tall, muscular and handsome man walks by it is not difficult to grasp notice of him. And if there are ladies and girls around, they are sure to look at him in awe. This is the same effect which took on many ladies at the recent Blenders Pride Fashion Tour 2012. The man to create that impact was Daggubati Rana. The Daggubati scion happened to be part of the ramp show and more like a showstopper. It is heard that many high society ladies and young hot models were busy whispering in their ears whenever Rana walked on the ramp or posed for pictures. This whispering was followed by few giggles and blushing on the ladies faces. Few of the staff members who were around revealed the ladies were passing all naughty comments on Rana and having a good time. That way, Rana is living up to the image of Casanova in the right way.


Rana trying to imitate his Uncle

Tollywood hunk Rana is on cloud nine with applauds from everywhere for trailers & promo songs of his upcoming film ‘Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum’. Dialogues from his trailer has become talk of the town from few days and even Rana’s different looks from mythological stories were liked by many. Few days back a promo song ‘Rangamarthanda Btech Babu’ of this film is spreading like virus in social networking sites. Reason for that is Rana has imitated few dance steps from his uncle Venkatesh in that song. Have a look at song and decide whether Rana has imitated Venkatesh upto the mark or not.


Rana fears one more flop !

Tollywood hunk Rana who is having immense fan following in the form of Andhra Pradesh girls is now fearing for another flop. It seems that his upcoming film “Krishnam Vande Jagathgurum” deals with incarnation of Krishna in modern world. It is well known that the talented director Trivikram thought of showing similar concept with the film “Khaleja”. This film turned down the fame of Mahesh Babu and the shades of this film are falling on Rana. But the film director Krish is quite confident on the flick.

Even though Rana failed to impress audience after “Leader”, Krish selected him as hero in the upcoming flick which is showing the level of confidence Krish has on the story of the film. Just like “Vedam” and “Gamyam”, this film is expected to rock in Tollywood. Hope good days starts for Rana in the form of this film’s success.


Trisha,Rana night parties in Hyderabad

Looks like Trisha and Rana Daggubati are not bothered a wee bit about reports of their alleged relationship. Recently, the two actors were spotted having a good time at their common friend’s birthday bash in Hyderabad last week.

A source says, “Trisha and Rana were very comfortable in each other’s company, and had a great time with the rest of their friends from the industry. The media reports about their alleged closeness and relationship didn’t stop them from partying hard. They were by each other’s side throughout the party.”

Trisha and Rana were first spotted together at a New Year’s bash in Goa, and later, at a couple of other hotspots in Chennai and Hyderabad. When we had asked Rana about their alleged relationship, he just laughed off the reports, while Trisha had said that she was just good friends with the actor and has known him for ten years now.

Rana Opens up about Marriage Rumors

Tollywood hunk Rana Daggubati has finally decided to open up about his marriage rumors which are in circulation in the media since the past few days. Few sections of media had reported that the actor got engaged to South hottie Trisha in a private ceremony. Trisha denied the reports immediately to put end to the speculations, but that didn't work. So now, Rana stepped into action!

Rana appealed to the media not to give room for gossips. "The latest gossip about me is Marriage. Here, it's done now. But in Mumbai, it happened 6 months back. And in Chennai it will happen at some other time. I will be the first person to announce publicly, if I decide to tie the knot. There are various public platforms to express my views and I'm always ready to tell what the truth is!," he clarifies.

Although both Rana and Trisha denied the marriage reports, they remained tight-lipped when asked if there is any possibility of the duo entering into marital bliss in future. No Smoke Without Fire!

Rana’s Dookudu !

Entering the film industry with film background always gives an easy access to the first one or two films but after that it is the responsibility of the individual to sustain his career and create his own impression. While most of them have been smooth in this matter, one young man has been facing trouble.

He is Daggubati Rana, son of Daggubati Suresh Babu, grandson of Daggubati Ramanaidu. Though he has the right kind of backup, terrific personality and influence, Rana is unable to prove himself as an actor. But now, it is heard that he has decided to increase the speed and do more films and that too in Bollywood.

Those who heard this are saying it is better Rana controls his speed and focuses more on improving his skills. For example, he is very bad at dance and facial expressions. So, it is better he takes time and focuses on some workshops instead of trying to do more films and spoiling his future chances.

Am I getting married to Raana? Trisha

Trisha mentioned that people are telling that she is loving Raana but she is not ready for marriage. Trisha while speaking about this said, ” I have been in the industry for the last 10 years. This did not happen by luck.

The films that I have acted have sustained me. I am not acting just for name sake. I will accept the role only if I like it. This is my policy. There are frequent rumours that I am in love with Raana and I am going to marry him. We are close friends for the past 10 years. I am not worried about rumours.

I am not yet ready for marriage. I am waiting for my lover. For any woman, marriage is a new chapter in their life. We should not rush. Marriage will wait for me. I am acting in a couple of Telugu films. Though I have acted in many films, the film Nuvvostanante Nenoddantana directed by Prabhu Deva is close to my heart. Many are still calling me by those films role names.”
