“Tollywood” comes to Docklands

30 Apr 2010

“Tollywood” comes to Docklands Image

He’s a bad boy and he’s in Docklands looking for lost love.  

“Tollywood” actor Ram Charan Teja is the star of an elaborate production which promises to put Docklands in front of 60 million movie goers.

The hero was only days away from finishing a gruelling production schedule for Orange which started last year and is being filmed both in Australia and India.

Tollywood is the name given to the southern Indian film industry, which uses the Telugu language.  Orange is the biggest Indian production based here and employed 450 Australians in the process.

In Orange Ram Charan plays along side Genelia D’Souza and the film has raised eyebrows at home for “lip-locking” kissing and for featuring  two-piece bikinis.

In the film the 25-year-old heart throb plays an Australian graffiti artist of Indian origin who finds, and then loses, love against a back drop of street art.

An Indian blog on the film explains:  “Graffiti is the name for images or lettering scratched, scrawled, painted or marked in any manner on property. Graffiti is any type of public markings that may appear in the forms of simple written words to elaborate wall paintings.”

In terms of cultural exchange, the Docklands News thinks it’s fair to say that Australia is getting the better deal!
