Aishwarya Rajesh's next to be a comedy thriller 

Actor Aishwarya Rajesh’s next and yet-to-be-titled Tamil film, has gone on floors on Wednesday. Also starring Yogi Babu, Redin Kingsley, Sunil Reddy, and Arjun Chidambaram, among others, the film is expected to be a comedy thriller.

The film is written and directed by Savari Muthu in his directorial debut. Savari, who has earlier worked as a writer in films like Darling, Hero, Kanaa, Ka Pae Ranasingam, among others, says about his upcoming directorial, “Even though it is a comedy thriller and will be a wholesome family entertainer, we have tried to tell a social message at the end.  The film revolves around an ordinary nurse, who at one point questions to seek justice against issues that impact the society.”

The makers are looking to shoot the film in Chennai and Puducherry and wrap up by December. The film is expected to be released sometime in April for summer.

“I have known her (Aishwarya) for some time now and we have worked in many projects. After I expressed my interest in working with her on a film, and she was also in, I started to write this project. So, I have written this keeping her in mind,” adds the director.

The technical crew of the film consists of music by D Imman and cinematography by Thamizh A Azhagan. “There will be four songs in the film, a dance number and few melodies,” Savari mentions.

The edits are handled by Sarath Kumar. The film is backed by Blaze Kannan under Dwarka Productions. The makers are looking to reveal the title of the film soon.

Jennifer Aniston cried over the 'idea of losing' Matthew Perry 19 years before his death

Jennifer Aniston wept over the "idea of losing" Friends co-star Matthew Perry 19 years before his shocking death.

The actor, 54, who starred as Rachel Green alongside Matthew in Friends for a decade, shared her views in an interview back in 2009 where she told Diane Sawyer, 77, of her terror over the prospect of Matthew dying before his time. 

"That he's alright," Jennifer said when Diane asked what her former Friends co-star didn't know about himself and needed to hear.

She then became emotional as she started to refer to his decades of battling drink and drug addictions, adding: "He struggled, and we didn't know. We weren't equipped to deal with it. Nobody had ever dealt with that. And the idea of ever losing him… ."

Perry said he was downing a quart of vodka and 55 Vicodin a day in the depths of his addictions. While promoting his memoir Friends, Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing last year, Matthew thanked Jennifer for her support as he battled to recover.

He told Diane Sawyer in October 2022: "She was the one that reached out the most. You know, I'm really grateful to her for that."

The troubled star added it was Jennifer who initially confronted him during the filming of Friends and told him the cast knew he was drinking. Matthew added: "Imagine how scary a moment that was." But he also hailed Jennifer as "wonderful," "terrific," and "the greatest" for caring about him.

Matthew's co-stars from Friends – Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc and David Schwimmer – released a joint statement yesterday, October 31, on his passing. 

While the five friends are yet to publicly address on social media, they said to People Magazine, "We are all so utterly devastated by the loss of Matthew. We were more than just cast mates. We are a family. There is so much to say, but right now we’re going to take a moment to grieve and process this unfathomable loss. In time we will say more, as and when we are able. For now, our thoughts and our love are with Matty’s family, his friends, and everyone who loved him around the world.”

Created by David Crane and Marta Kauffman, Matthew's Chandler is one of the crowd favourite, for his sarcastic comments and humorous one-liners. The actor was found drowned in a jacuzzi in his home in Los Angeles on October 29. He was 54.
