North and South film industry come together for film collaborations. Pixabay

Actors and actresses of North and South Indian film industries joining hands are not new. Bollywood and South stars collaborating on-screen have been a trend in the past with the likes of Rajinikanth, Kamal Haasan, Chiranjeevi, Nagarjuna, Prabhu Deva, and many others collaborating with Aishwarya Rai, Deepika Padukone, Sonakshi Sinha, Manisha Koirala, Raveena Tandon, and Kajol, etc.

While the trend had slowed down in between, the new generation of stars seems to be reviving the idea. Calling it the “pan-India” film for maximum reach, many new-generation stars from North and South are coming together in some of the biggest ventures, over the coming months. The idea, of course, is to maximize the audience base and revenues at a time uncertainty rule over the film business.

Over the next months, Vijay Deverakonda stars with Ananya Panday in Liger, while Alia Bhatt and Ajay Devgn will be seen in RRR with Ram Charan and Jr NTR. Prabhas, Kriti Sanon, and Saif Ali Khan co-star in Adipurush, and Prabhas teams up with Amitabh Bachchan and Deepika Padukone in an untitled film. These are just a few instances.

The trend has ensured such films are released in multiple languages such as Hindi, Tamil Telugu, and Malayalam — which helps in reaching out to a bigger audience. This, in turn, helps stars gain fandom beyond their own respective region.

IANS takes a look at some of the biggest North-South collaborations coming up in mainstream Indian cinema:

RRR

Bollywood actors Alia Bhatt and Ajay Devgn will be seen in this magnum opus by SS Rajamouli. The film also features South stars Ram Charan and Jr. NTR. The film is set against the backdrop of the independence era. The period drama centers around the life of freedom fighters Komaram Bheem and Alluri Sita Ramaraju. It will be released in Telugu, Tamil, Hindi, Malayalam, Kannada, and other Indian languages.

The release of the Hindi version has been affected due to the spike in Covid-19 cases in Maharashtra.

The software for a website called "Facemash" was written by Zuckerberg, then a second-year Harvard student, in the year 2003. He put his talent to improper use by hacking into the security network of Harvard. To fill his new website, he duplicated the student ID pictures used by the dorms and uploaded them there. Anyone who visited the site could see photos of two students side-by-side and choose who among the two was "hot" or "not." Facemash opened on October 28, 2003, but a few days later, it was closed.
