Why does our man go around with a Muslims-are-always-persecuted complex????????

why does Shaam/Arya have more of a hindu sounding name or for that matter Joseph Vijay prefers to be called as Vijay??
having a different screen name is common but this is clearly a different case. wonder why TFI doesn't even give them the liberty of reprising a role of a muslim/christian thorough and through the movie, TFI is so reclusive in this regard Rolling Eyes

In sa,me TFI only Rahman and Kushboo and Jyothika and so many muslims are there na?! Who asked Arya or SHaam to hide their religious interests? Are we building castle aout of nowhere?? I don;t see this as a point at all. esp in TN atleast. North la Dileep kumar naa athu vera vishayam

I have ppl saying that whatever penetration rahman was 'allowed to' (yes!) into bollywood was with the main ticket that he is an muslim!


Skv, Jothika unselected and Kush is an exception, for record KB asked AR to consider changing his name so there is a clear pattern of people from particular community been forced to change their birth name to more of a hindu sounding name.
would be downright deplorable/silly to even contemplate AR's fame/penetration in B'wood to his religion(wonder why is SS taking this sitting down!?). suggest you stay far far away from those people who think so Wink

CF, it isn't only about hiding their religion, they are merely adhering to stereotype of a hero from religious majority. Call center agent example you had cited is done for entirely different reason.

Wizzy, wrt ARR i am not at all talking abt talent. But heard such an version from a person who was once active in hub. Its like, entry ticket pottu kudukkura thing.

But anyways, i maybe far ar away from the reality you / bala may be having in mind. Same time, wrt kamal, en side, somewhat similar to CF, niyaayam irukkaapla thaan irukku. Anyways, i need not fix anything and always ready to talk/know/correct-myself if i meet you or bala or anyone in person!

At the minimum, the Dilip Kumar sagA to Amir Khan sagA proves how tolerant / diversity-accepting place Bollywood has "grown" to be. (May be facilitated by the Waheeda Rahmans, Zeenath Amans in-between...Mansur Ali Khan married Sharmila Tagore, another diversity-progessing step those days...now we have Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Amir Khan, Rahman...).

OTOH, like wizzy pointed out, the so-called socially progressive (means "unity in diversity") TN's film field seems to have regressed. The field that celebrated "Hasan" yesterday but pushes Joseph Vijay to "only Vijay" (or Arya, kind of a HC Hindutva name to a Muslim) is a valid case in point!

I guess that "name-to-advantage" thingy is attributed to MM Kreem (i.e. Kareem bhAi) who is Maragathamani elsewhere.

There was a change in name involved in this case.

ARR? Absolutely not!

Perhaps the only talent who stormed north & south simultaneously in the film history Shocked

Agree...we'll have to limit the discussion to the industry only.

Not the society Smile

I think KH talked about the industry mainly (Dilip Kumar, Hasan, Nasar)...

Malayalam industry has another interesting name "Mammootty" which is super popular (Original name Mohamed Kutty)...

Attention Plum!

This is not the first time he has done this,seems a genuine fan-deserving or not us a matter of discussion.

I know a lot of people with refined tastes talking highly about Dilip Kumar,have not watched him enough to make a decision.
Fair enough CF. I know zilch about this. NT padame innum yeraalama paakka vendiyirukku.
However,
1. Over nenju nakking in this instance.
2. NT-DK hyphenated treatment is deeply unsettling. Hope it is either aaruvakkolaaru or the way the article has been put together

You have answered it yourself:
. NT-DK hyphenated treatment is deeply unsettling. Hope it is either aaruvakkolaaru or the way the article has been put together

idhu dhAN matteru.
You dont have to be an actor to tell that the limited Dilip Kumar is in a different plane, several levels lower, to NT. For that matter, he is way behind even Sathyan(Chemmeen fame) chettan and to some extent, Devudu and ANR.

indha vivaadhathula pudhusA solla oNnum illai. andha forumlEyE solliyAchu, vENumna repost paNnalAm

1) Kamal has a right to be biased
2) This bias doesn't take away any iota of credibility from his "secular" thoughts and ideas that he has expressed on screen
3) A lot of Brahmin persecution we talk about - is not at a level that really affects bread and butter. The historical persecution that *we* did to the others is no way comparable to current persecution that *we* perceive from *them*
( I am deliberately using *we* and *them* here since it is my cross to bear)
4) I see the same attitude in the Anglo-Saxon's defiant reverse-racism accusations at the natives, at the slightest provocation(real and imaginary). Basically, what the erstwhile powerful segments seem to want is to get away with a "mea-culpa" for historical atrocities and get on with a new equality theory. It doesnt work like that practically.
5) There are issues within the minority community that prevent their emancipation - but this doesnt give us a right to hide behind that and not criticise the other factors. At the least, we might be guilty of being passive accomplices to this

Someone like Kamal having that extra-bias-for may be a social need to balance the extra-bias-against.

Saying all this, I have to say I am extremely hesitant to rent my house to a non-vegetarian.

The narratives of social equality, social oppression etc are far too complex to be buried into a "madakkittEn pArthiyA unnoda non-neutral biased stance-ai" narratives. The discussions at intellectual level are useless and pointless in this...

Bala - update: that Mirror article is by Subhash K Jha - indhALu oodhavE vENAm. Bacchan Propoganda Machinery thalaivar, Bollywood promoter. He must have twisted the words to give a heavy Yusuf-saab-is-deivam slant to it.
The beauty of it is with Kamal being primiarily interested in promotion of Viswa, he cannot spend time on rebuking this now. So, it is a safe mechanism of making it sound like what it has come across. Journalistic tricks - ask me!


BTW, indha Jha dhAn EdhO oru indhi padathukku(Dont remember if it was Shiva or Kaalapani) pOnappO "He may be a King of South but he doesnt know to compose for Bollywood films"-nu ezhudhinApla review. AmAyya unga levelukku iRangai vara theriyADhu dhAn!

Subhash jha is to Kamal now what Khalid Mohammed was once upon a time.
But have to tell KM's interviews of KH were to me(at that point of time)fascinating while this guy is mediocre(as with 99.9% of media guys these days).
Guess he doesn't have much options when it comes to promoting him upnorth.
