Success not far behind: Kajal Aggarwal

Kajal Aggarwal plays the role of a singer in Modhi Vilayaadu, directed by Saran, writes KK Moidu
Director Saran, who was an assistant of K Balachander, has made remarkable hit films like Gemini, Vasool Raja MBBS etc in the past. He is back now after a couple of years with Modhi Vilayaadu. The film tells the story of a youngster who takes revenge on his enemies. Kajal plays a college student who is the lead singer LR Easwari in a rock band. She pairs with young hero Vinay Rai in the romantic action-comedy entertainer. S Ramakrishnan pens the story and dialogues while the screenplay is by Saran. Santhanam, VMC Haneefa and Kalabhavan Mani play other important roles in the film. Hariharan-Leslie Lewis (Colonial Cousins), the duo who was credited for taking Indian pop overseas, are debuting as music directors in Tamil cinema with this film. They score the music for Vairamuthu’s lyrics.
Modhi Vilayadu is produced by Murali Manohar under the banner of Media One Global Entertainment Ltd in association with Gemini Industries and Imaging Ltd. The story of Modhi Vilayaadu is a universal subject and it was shot in foreign locations like Kuala Lumpur, Dubai, Paris and Maldives.

Mumbai-based model Kajal was discovered by film-maker Teja, a veteran in introducing newcomers. Kajal has acted in more than half-a-dozen Telugu and Tamil films as a heroine within a short span of two years. She made her debut as a heroine by playing a village belle in the Telugu film Lakshmi Kalyanam directed by Teja. Kalyan Ram, the grandson of NTR played the male lead as an uneducated farmer. The film was a moderate hit at the box office and the gorgeous Kajal, with an attractive smile, won appreciation for her emotional scenes and gestures. She proved her acting talent in her second film Chandamama, a family drama crafted by creative director Krishnavamsi. Her sizzling performance in some scenes of the film and the glamorous appearances in song sequences won the hearts of fans. After this film, Kajal’s appearance onscreen was celebrated with loud cheers and whistling by fans. She was paired opposite Navdeep in the film and it was remade in Tamil as A Aa E Ee. Kajal confidently portrayed the role of Samyuktha as the female lead opposite Sumanth in Raaj Adity’as directorial debut Pourudu. The family entertainer was produced by Sumanth’s sister, D Supriya. Kajal’s pairing opposite young hero Nithin in Ravikumar Chawdhary’s Aatadista didn’t come upto expectations. However, she is on the fast track to superstardom and bagged two prestigious offers to pair opposite crowd-pulling young heroes Allu Arjun and Ram Charan Teja. Kajal is the love interest of Allu Arjun in Arya 2 directed by Sukumar. The film is a sequel of actor Allu Arjun and director Sukumar’s previous box office hit Arya. Kajal will play the role enacted by Anuradha Mehta in Arya. Although Allu Arjun’s debut film was a hit, the sensational success of Arya made him a successful hero in the Telugu film industry. The bubbly Kajal is the heroine in Magadheera and the hero of the film is megapower star Ram Charan Teja, son of megastar Chiranjeevi. SS Rajamouli directs the film and Allu Aravind is the producer.
Magadheera is a success guaranteed project and her role in the film gives her ample scope to perform. The film will be dubbed and released in other languages like Malayalam and Tamil. The big budget action entertainer is made for satisfying not only Ram Charan Teja’s fans but also all kinds of audience. MM Keeravani composes music of the film. Kajal also tried her luck in the Tamil industry by making a debut in Bommalattam, but her second film Pazhani was released earlier. Kajal paired opposite senior hero Arjun in Bommalattam. The film, directed by veteran Bharathiraja was remade into Hindi as Cinema and in Telugu as Rana. Nana Patekar made his Tamil and Telugu debut and Arjun made his Bollywood debut with the investigation thriller. Kajal’s pairing opposite Bharath in Pazhani directed by Perarasu was a money spinner at the box office. She also had enough luck to be a part of the critically acclaimed box office hit, Tamil film Saroja, directed by Venkat Prabhu. Kajal shot to fame within a couple of years and succeeded in winning the hearts of filmgoers. She is busy with offers from Telugu and Tamil cinema. It is clear that superstardom is within her reach because her forthcoming projects are with crowd pulling heroes like Allu Arjun, Ram Charan Teja and Jr NTR.
