You are listening to the Expresso Entertainment Update. Here is the latest news from the world of South Indian CInema brought to you by The Indian Express.
“Let us begin today’s bulletin with news on the upcoming Varisu. A video from the sets of Vijay’s upcoming film Varisu is making the rounds on social media. The clip, which looks like was shot secretly, features Vijay and Prabhu in a hospital pushing a stretcher. The two are carrying actor Sarathkumar in it.

Vijay fans have demanded the user take down the clip as they don’t want to spoil the film for everyone. Varisu marks Vijay’s first Tamil-Telugu bilingual, which is directed by Tollywood director Vamsi of Thozha fame. The film has Rashmika Mandanna in the female lead role. Shaam, Sarathkumar, Yogi Babu, and Prabhu are also part of the film, which has music by Thaman.

“Meanwhile, the newlywed couple Nayanthara and Vignesh Shivan are off to Barcelona, Spain for a vacation. The photos from the vacay made their way to social media and we have Vignesh to thank for it.

Sharing the first post, as they took their flight for Barcelona, Vignesh wrote, “After a continuous streak of work work work! Here we take some time for ourselves! #Barcelona here we come !” Nayanthara and Vignesh Shivan tied the knot in a grand wedding ceremony on June 9 in Chennai this year. Top stars of Indian cinema including Shah Rukh Khan, Rajinikanth, AR Rahman, Suriya, Karthi and Vijay Sethupathi, among others were a part of their D-day.

“Moving on, Rajinikanth took to Twitter to share a new video asking fans to display the Indian flag outside their homes on Independence Day as a mark of respect to the country. In the one-minute-long video, Rajinikanth says, “On our 75th Independence Day, as a mark of respect to our freedom fighters – many of whom underwent torture and sacrificed their lives – I request you all to come together without any caste, religious, and political biases and fly our national flag on a small pole.”

He added, “We are here because of our nation. Let’s feel proud of our nation. Jai Hind.” Only days ago, the superstar changed his Twitter display picture to the tricolour flag like many other celebrities.

“In other news, Shah Rukh Khan starrer ‘Jawan’ is one the most awaited films of 2023 and now, it has been confirmed that alongside King Khan, the film will also star Vijay Sethupathi. The film is being directed by Atlee and stars Nayanthara in a significant role

For weeks now, there have been rumours that Vijay Sethupathi is part of Jawan. On Saturday, the PRO of the actor took to Twitter to confirm the news. He wrote, “This is to clarify that #VijaySethupathi sir is doing a negative role only in #ShahRukhKhan sir’s Jawan at this point and that he is not playing a negative role in any other Telugu projects as is being speculated”.

“Meanwhile, ahead of the release of his films Cobra and Ponniyin Selvan 1, actor Chiyaan Vikram has made his debut on the social networking platform, Twitter. His official Twitter handle is ‘@chiyaan’.

Vikram’s first post on Twitter was a video, in which he said, “It’s me Chiyaan Vikram. It’s me. Don’t be confused. I am not in disguise. This is my look for my next film with Pa.Ranjith. I was told that Twitter allows me to stay content with my fans and keep them informed about my films. But, I am late by almost 15 years. But, I feel it’s the right time.”
The actor added that he has joined Twitter to experience the love of his fans.


Moving on, Madras High Court recently quashed the FIR against Suriya, Jyotika and Tha.se Gnanavel. The FIR, which was filed in Velacherry police station, claimed that their 2021 movie Jai Bhim was made with motives to instigate communal violence between communities and create Vanniyar phobia.

Jai Bhim, based on the real story of Sengeni and Rajakannu of the Irular tribe, came under fire for the alleged wrongful portrayal of the Vanniyar community.

Many raised red flags for a scene in the film, where a calender with Agni Kundum was seen in the house of a police officer. They also criticised the makers for naming the police officer Gurumurthy.


Lastly, Prashanth Neel‘s upcoming film Salaar’s release date, starring Prabhas in the lead role, was revealed as September 28, 2023. Meanwhile, the buzz for his future project with Jr NTR, tentatively titled NTR31, is already on the rise. Now, the KGF director has shared a new update about his project with NTR. Addressing the media, Prashanth Neel confirmed that NTR31 will go on floors next April or May.

Prashanth Neel said, “Currently, I am working with Prabhas for Salaar, and I will start my next film with Jr NTR. It is likely to go on floors in April or May next year”. After the humongous success of KGF Chapter 2, there is a huge expectation for Prashanth Neels’ film.
