Sambhar Mafia - Cooked To Kill!

Actor Vishal starts blogging

Not many from the Tamil film industry have attempted blogging and it is interesting to see a hero hitting the blogging trail. The only other Tamil film personality (that I can think of!) who attempted blogging and left it half-way is Director Ram of Katrathu Tamizh fame.

Action hero Vishal is the actor we are talking about here. The layout is quite trendy (Copied from Big B's blog?). The tab heading on the browser proclaims that it is Puratchi Thalapathi Vishal's official blog. I don't understand why actors still use such funny accolades and titles which don't have any real meaning.

Coming to the blog itself, there are a few posts containing a few lines each. They sound more like a longish SMS. They come across as a bit amateurish. After reading through the blog posts, one gets an impression that he might have either hired a ghost writer or used his PRO to update the blog. Here is a sample post:

Hai Everybody. It is a most unhappy day, the most popular villian of yester years Mr. M.N. Nambiar passed away yesterday. He was a vetran theater artist and a great cinema legend. Unlike his character in films which he potrayed he was a very humble and hardworking actor. He has worked with seven generation of actors. I think new actors like me cannot comment on his acting since he is a legent and a phoneix in acting. I am sad that i missed working with such a great person. I am sure the whole film industry is going to miss him a lot. (Link)
Let's watch his blog closely to see how it shapes up.

  • Hi,

    I was reading ur blog posts and found some of them to be very good.. u write well.. Why don't you popularize it more.. ur posts on ur blog ‘Sambhar Mafia - Cooked To Kill!’ took my particular attention as some of them are interesting topics of mine too;

    BTW I help out some ex-IIMA guys who with another batch mate run www.rambhai.com where you can post links to your most loved blog-posts. Rambhai was the chaiwala at IIMA and it is a site where users can themselves share links to blog posts etc and other can find and vote on them. The best make it to the homepage!

    This way you can reach out to rambhai readers some of whom could become your ardent fans.. who knows.. :)

  • And if you see the feed readers button which is displayed on his blog at the bottom and you will be surprised or shocked to know that there are around 2 lakh plus readers who have subscribed to his blog...!!!!!!

    If that is the case then vishal would be the top blogger in the world. It clearly is a fudged and manipulated feed button. I don't know whom they are trying to fool.

    Getting 2 lakh readers for an actor who has not even acted 10 movies till now... how stupid can they be to fool us..

    i wonder how many have subscribed to amitab bachan's blog???
