Kajal Agarwal is lucky mascot for Tollywood heroes

Kajal Agarwal is turning out to be the "lucky mascot" for Tollywood heroes. Her latest Mr Perfect with Prabhas is a hit. She always gives  new lease of life to Telugu heroes who were earlier going through a bad patch like Prabhas.

kajal_agarwal_latest_cute_photos_stills_01

But Kajal is yet to churn out a hit in Tamil. Take a look at her Kollywood attempts- Palani, Bommalattam, Modi Vilayattu and Naan Mahan Alla. Except for her last release with Karthi, which was average,  all others were colossal flops.

Kajal now desperately needs a sure fire hit in Kollywood. The grapevine has it that she is the frontrunner to be Suriya's heroine in KV Anand's Matraan.  She is hoping that being a Suriya film her luck will change in Kollywood.

Meanwhile, her career in Bollywood where she is debuting opposite Ajay Devgn will be known by July , when the film releases.

But industry analysts feel that she is better of doing Telugu films where she is queen and gets a hefty salary than doing all languages.

She has been chosen by Pawan Kalyan to be his heroine in Gabbar Singh, the Telugu remake of Dabbang.

Rajini-deepika-010508

The film has a complex plot that supposedly covers three generations; therefore, the look and feel of the film has to be authentic. Rajinikanth felt that Deepika has to look like the typical South Indian belle with a simple yet radiant beauty. Her supermodel looks are not suitable for the character. The shooting has been delayed and will resume once the make-up department finalizes Deepika’s new look.

Who is Suriya’s heroine?

levoythjhjiSuriya, undoubtedly is Kollywood's number one hero at the moment. He has just completed the shoot of his AR Murgadoss directed 7am Arivu, in which Sruthi Haasan is his heroine.

Suriya will start work for his next film Maatran directed by KV Anand and produced by AGS. The shoot of the film will start by the first week of June.

Now the big question being asked is: "Who will be the lucky girl to be featured opposite Suriya?" It is a million dollar question and a lot of heroines from all over the country have thrown in their hat.

Remember being Suriya's heroine you get a fantastic reach and fame. Ask Tamannaah who after being paired with Suriya in KV Anand's Ayan reached dizzy heights.

Similarly Shruthi Haasan is all set to storm K'wood once 7am Arivu releases. As of now as per the Kollywood grapevine,  those who have been selected in the preliminary list are- Deepika Padukone, Kajal Agarwal, Taapsee and Samantha.

Deepika has asked for a very high salary, and negotiations are going on. However the heroine with a realistic chance of grabbing the role is Kajal Aggarwal, who has emerged as the front runner.

The Maghadheera girl  has a reach in Andhra where Suriya has an audience and will be a star in Bollywood after doing Hindi Singam with Ajay Devgan. The only thing going against her is her not so impressive progress card (hit movie) in Tamil cinema.

The others are also trying to get this coveted role opposite the hot and happening Suriya.
