The hysteria associated with Shankar's magnum opus, Ai, starring Vikram and Amy Jackson, is gaining momentum by the day. The latest we hear is that the much awaited project from the successful combo will have an intro song sans the hero. Sources say that the song would feature heroine Amy Jackson and Upen Patel, who plays the baddie in the movie. Upen is a name to reckon with in B-Town, thanks to the macho characters he enacted there with ease.

Rumours are rife that both Amy Jackson and Upen Patel essay the role of models in the film and that the song will throw light on the modeling industry. it was also heard that Shankar will be shooting this song soon in Chennai and huge sets have been erected for it.

Samantha to pair up with Vikram ?

Written By Chiyaan CVF on Thursday, April 17, 2014 | 7:56 AM

We hear that Samantha has been approached to play the lead in cinematographer-director Vijay Milton’s film with Vikram. While the actress is yet to sign on the dotted line, we are told she has verbally expressed her consent to star in the project.

While Vijay Milton is hesitant to divulge details, he tells us, “I will be narrating the script to Samantha in the coming week.” A source close to the actress, however, tells us that she has agreed in principle to be part of the film.

Interestingly, at the time of Goli Soda’s release, Samantha had tweeted about how she liked the film, and praised the performance of one of the actresses in the film.

While Vikram has completed his film with Ai, and is getting back in shape for his other projects, Samantha is busy with Vijay’s Kaththi and Suriya’s Anjaan in Kollywood.

Samantha to romance Chiyaan Vikram
Looks like Samantha has become the toast of K'tow. the demure beauty's kitty is full with four films in Tamil and Telugu, including Anjaan with Suriya and Kaththi with Vijay. Now, the buzz is that sam has been roped in by Vijay Milton, the cinematographer turned filmmaker, for his upcoming movie which is yet to be titled. Samantha will be romancing Vikram in the movie which is road travel genre.

AR Murugadoss will be producing it under his home banner. After eyeing some of the biggies, Milton felt Samantha would fit the bubbly role and that Chiyaan and Sam would make a fresh looking pair. Yet another reason attributed to bring Sam on board was that the ravishing actress is presently acting in ARM's Kaththi. Hence, it became easier for the Ghajini filmmaker to bahg her for his next as well.

Sources say that the film will go on the floors in June, and by that time, the Naan Ee girl will complete her earlier commitments. Vikram wrapped up his magnum opus, Ai, with Shankar recently. The actress who was once considered jinxed in the Tamil Industry is apparently the most sought after girl now.

Arnold roped in for Ai

Written By Chiyaan CVF on Tuesday, April 8, 2014 | 7:45 AM

Last week Indiaglitz reported that Aascar Ravichandran the producer of director Shankar's upcoming magnum opus Ai that has Vikram and Amy Jackson in the lead roles is planning a grand audio launch for the film. He is also trying to rope in an international celebrity to take part as the chief guest to release the album composed by Academy award winner A.R.Rahman.

Now the latest buzz is Ravichandran has managed to get the nod of Hollywood Superstar and former Governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger to grace the audio launch.

It is worth recalling that Ravichandran made Jackie Chan to take part in the audio launch of Kamala Haasan starrer Dasavatharam that released in 2008. Arnold is presumed to be opted for the audio launch of Ai for two reasons. The Hollywood actor is popular among Tamil audience for his films like Terminator and True Lies. Secondly Arnold is as popular as a body builder as he is an actor. Since Ai is supposedly based on modeling and body-building, he will be the right choice to be associated with the film.

The participation of Arnold Schwarzenegger in Ai audio launch is yet to be confirmed officially.
