It’s the current rage in Kollywood that all biggies are being made as bi-linguals and released in the Andhra market along with its original Tamil version..

Several heroes and directors from Kollywood have been aiming Tollywood during the making stages of the film itself. Jiiva’s Mugamoodi was Mask in Telugu while his
Gautham Menon directed Nee Thane en Ponvasantham will be also releasing in Andhra as Yeto Vellipoyindi Manasu.

Maattrraan is being titled Brothers with Surya dubbing for himself while Karthi’s Alex Pandian will be Bad Boys in Telugu.

Chiyaan Vikram is one big star who also has a huge fan following in Andhra. So its no surprise that UTV will be releasing his next biggie, Thaandavam in its Telugu avatar titled Siva Thaandavam soon.

The production house has planned a huge audio function which will be graced by hero Vikram amongst others. The details of the function to be held on Sep 11th in Hyderabad are still being worked out. But needless to say, judging from the huge hype the Tamil audio launch created, the function will no doubt be a big one in Andhra too.

 Siva Thaandavam is directed by AL Vijay and the film stars Anushka Shetty, Amy Jackson, Lakshmi Rai, Nasser and others.

The film is slated for release on September 28th along with its Tamil version. Expectations are high on this film as it has brought back Vikram and AL Vijay together after their spellbinding film Deiva Thirumagal.
