Shriya Saran

Hot and dazzling Shriya Saran, whose marked in Tamil films has taken a beating over the past couple of years, is all set to court a fresh controversy. Sources close to the actress say that Shriya has gone to Sri Lanka to shoot for her upcoming English film titled ‘Winds of Change’, which is being directed by Deepa Mehta of the famous ‘Fire’, ‘Earth’ and ‘Water’ triology.

Even before the storm over actress Asin’s last summer visit to Lanka has settled down, Shriya’s visit, albeit on professional commitment, is less likely to go unnoticed. Shriya was in Chennal over the weekend when she danced along with the ‘King’ Khan (Shahrukh) of Bollywood during the inaugural function to mark to commencement of IPL-IV.

Soon after the programme was over, Shriya left for Lanka the very next day, it is learnt. In fact, she had already been staying in Lanka and made a brief visit to Chennai to perform in the inaugural function of IPL-IV, sources reveal.

In the defensive mode to justify her visit to the Island nation, Shriya has started saying things such as ‘Lanka is a beautiful country with many scenic locales’, etc.

She tweeted, “Sri lanka u’ve been such a fabtastic place!! Love being here n working here..terrific experience. I really like SL.. but not liking the weather so much.. bringing me down : ( feelin a little homesick..not good!!”

It remains to be seen as to how the general public and Kollywood reacts to her visit to Lanka.

  1. if the cricket world cup finals were being played in sri lanka, would you want the india national team pull out of the competition bcos of the location? it’s just absurd to restrict sportsmen and artiste from going to sri lanka! why dun restrict them from going pakistan as well! grow up ppl!

  2. Panama kudutha evlokellam enna vena pannuvaluga….yetha oru matternu yen ellam highlight panreenga…..remove this news itself

  3. YOU grow up Usha! This is how social protest and boycotts are expressed in civilized societies. Sports and Art are ocial events they live and thrive in socio-cultural likeness and economy. they live in peoples money thats why thier fan clubs and mass decides their market. Beacuse of Many People like you, are the reason that these kinds of KILLERs or Geneocide oriented people thrive. for you are more worreid about game,and Entertainment and your OWN fun and extravaganzas. These are the Social entities should who suck our money and live in our money should act as grown up. At least people of you kind just sit doin gnothing if not do something good for the future. they are  so many countries they can visit and perform while maintaining the social protest. Sri Lanka has to be socially boycotted until they realize. GENOCIDE is crime. Even UNited NAtions and 3 Super Powers are working towards taking Sri lanka’s attrocities. But people like you will never grow up. NO wonder why India is still in shabbles and not accepted as super power. As the world knows that we have this nasty self centered attitude.

  4. Well said Arind!
    I doubt if people like Usha even care about things that happened in Lanka.Even now we have been getting documented evidences of warcrimes not sparing lakhs of civilians! Wold Usha even know what happened when the so called president of that country visited UK! Will Usha know about what the Irish govt’s statement made in the UN.On this note, the first things should be banned is these Sports and Artists only.and these suckers will go to any length if money is given to them.Thats why it needs to be interfered with and needs to be protested against.
    eitherways people like Usha arent grown enough to see the larger picture on why would someone keep asking to ban such visits.to Usha and similar : Go figure!

  5. DUDE SHE IS JUS SAYIN HER POINT OF VIEW.. WHY THE HECK IS WRONG IS WITH VISITING SRILANKA?? BCOS OF U PPL INDIA WILL NEVER EVER GET DEVELOPED!! U GUYS FORGOT THAT THERE ARE TAMILS LIVING IN SRI LANKA TOO!! DONT THEY NEED SOME FORM OF ENTERTAINMENT!! SRI LANKA SHLD BE PUNISHED FOR WHAT IT DID TO TAMILS BUT WHAT DID THE PPL THERE DO?? INDIANS NEVER GROW UP!!

  6. none of these ppl can answer my question if the world cup finals was help in sri lanka will they support if the indian team pull out? ppls would start throwing stones at the players house instead! they are jus confusing politics and entertainment.. sad to say things like this happen in india only! watever we talk abt being diversed community, all are jus bullshit! we only care abt ourselves!!

    and talking abt acting.. alot of film actors have gone to sri lanka but was anyone really banned from acting in movies? or their films banned in cinemas? salman khan was very famous for goin to sri lanka and talking to reporters rudely.. but now his film dabaang is being remade in tamil.. his brother who was the original producer have earned alot from the remake rights.. where did all these ppl go then? we can only talk alot but when coming to action we are nowhere.. we = indians

  7. Usha one thing u have to remember…….our government doesnt have any sense in these type of matters…..Pakistan and Srilanka are the same culprits……Pakistan is enemy and Srilanka is betrayer…….only terroist frm pakistan disturb us and some elements in pakistan army…but Srilanka is a betrayer and our govt fears for them due to its tilt over China and Srilanka…During Indra gandhi period the same happend and it was USA at that time..bcas of her right approach she helped prabahkaran to fight lankan govt….but after her none of the PM understand the threat of SL………we tamils are tolrent people….does Pakistan have the guts to play in Kolkatta????bcas they know they will be stoned……..Sinhaleas were originally from orissa and these bloody north indian officials supports them…for all of them tamils are just like a second class people……..does any of hindi actors have the courage to say I love pakistan and do they have courage to visit pakistan???if we have true sense of guarding our citizns Indian govt should have punished them…..think abt 500 innocent fishermen killed in last 4 years……its our duty to show our moral support…….like what we did for Anna hazare…..if he asked us to wear badges against corruption for a day…would u refuse????its such a thing……I believe very much that Sl will become a big headache like pakistan bcas of Chiniese intrusion….count the days…if prabakaran would be alive he would have decimated them…….we killed our own defence….its the truth……hmm cricket is a business and mostly controlled by political mafia ……..to gain money they would compromise ven their wifes and daughters……its the truth…..

  8. If govt fail to hear people voices terrorism would develop……all the root cause of naxals and terrors are bcas of govt inactiveness in tackiling their problem…….if tamil fishermen are keep on killed by Srilanks there will be some form of reaction would develpo and people would try to guard themselves…then govt will label them as terrorist..it is the sa truth happening now………Indians Indians nama than solliketu rrukom………namba peru Madrassi in north…..remember that…..there is much difference in reality……

  9. Arvind. well said.  Under bush law, anyone who stands for their rights are considered terrorist and SL government took advantage of that.  As a Tamil living in Canada, must stand for the right.

    Tell me why? 

    If war is over in SL?  why Tamils are being kidnapped and murdered in white van in SL still? 

    SL singalese government targeting the tamil youths to murder?  so there wont be much of birth rate, Tamil population of that country dies in the next 30 – 40 years.

    The Tamil doctors were kidnapped and bribed with money and for their lives because truth to be not told.

    Singalese miltary won the battle, claims the war is over in the island.  why would the singalese government lock their own leader FONSEKA in JAIL.  The truth to be not told to the UN and the rest of the world.

    why the media was banned in the country?  again truth not to be told.

    India must be very scared because China is targetting SL as the next market to south asia and want to be the superpower.   To the rest of the world taking the natural harbour from TRICO is their main aime but now and for ever India has to live under the threat of CHINA border issue, SL military base and natural habour.  Indians biggest mistake of allowing china in SL.
