Charmee Raring To Wear Bikini

With bikinis raining in Tollywood one heroine who is feeling left out is Charmee who is desperately waiting to get into the sexy attire and prove to the world what a sexy figure she has.

Charmee apparently has been left out of the rat race as she has not been offered the type of roles in last year or she, the actress is being confined to small budget films which have more banked on her acting skills and not on her glamour quotient.

But the actress now feels it is high time that she too jumps into the bikini bandwagon and if insider news is to be believed then she is in touch with some directors (read Krishna Vamsi) to create space in their movies for her bikini acts, one thing is sure and that is, we will all see the hot Charmee in a bikini sooner or later.

Chiru reveals the secret behind his name

Chiru was speaking to channel yesterday said ' It was 1978, My first film Punadhi Rallu released. When I saw my name Siva Shankara Prasad on screen, I felt odd with that lengthy name'. One day, I had a dream-In that dream , I was offering prayers to lord in a temple, a friend from out side the temple was calling me as Chiranjeevi raaa. Immediately I asked him whom you are calling, he replied as 'you'.; till that time, I don't know that there is name called Chiranjeevi.'

Chiru further adds ' I explained everything about my dream to my mother, She said that she is the devotee of Anjaneya Swami and Chiranjeevi is the other name for the Lord, and asked me to think about the Chiranjeevi name for screen name in the films'.

One day, in a interview with media, they have asked my name and I replied it as 'Chiranjeevi'. In that way, still I feel Lord Hanuman was the friend who called me Chiranjeevi in my dream'.
