WILL DEVAYANI COME BACK TO KOLANGAL
( BY N.THYAGARAJAN )
Will Devayani come back to Kolangal to continue her lead role as Abhinaya, is a million dollar question that poses not only to the Vikatan Productions, director Thiruchelvam and many of its viewers. The Sun TV's mega serial's viewers have become bored for not seeing Abhinaya for the last fifteen days. Abhinaya in this serial was shot and reached the stage of coma after having admiited to a hospital. The sudden turn in the serial's story line perplexed many and now Abhinaya has to be operated upon for which the hospital demands Rs.10 lakhs. The Abhi's family members run pillar to post to get that money was shown for the last one week.
The viewers are bored after seeing Devayani being shown often as hospitalised with the very same clippings. The cat is out of the bag now. Devayani is now appearing in another serial Manjal Magimai as Soundarya, a dhitto character of Kolangal's Abhinaya. The new serial is produced by the Kalaignar TV Channel. It is learnt that the Kolangal's director Thiruchelvam has changed minor alteration in his story line to pave way for Devayani to continue her role as Soundarya. She had given dates to the Kalaignar TV already, hence was the change, it is said. Now Devayani within 15 days of her shooting for the new serial had completed 20 episodes of Manjal Magimai started airing from September 17th onwards between 8.30 PM and 9.00 PM.
There is one more reason, why Devayani and many other popular face artistes give priority to the new channel was the payment part of it. It is said, Devayani was paid only Rs.40,000 in the Kolangal serial, whereas this amount was doubled in the Kalaignar TV channel, according to reliable sources. Moreover, one can't simply belittle the new channel, since, the CM expects that it should be number one Tamil Channel. People have also started viewing the outcome of the new channel which has come out with 300 crores investment.
Director Thiruchelvam, is find other alterations for the Abhi character for the Kolangal serial. Is there any lieutenant from the big screen to fulfill the Abhi Character?
It is also said, till the completion of atleast 50 episodes in advance, Devayani will not appear in any other serials including for big screen.
