Three Stars Competing to be No. 4
The competition among Telugu star heroes seems interesting. Apart from Akkineni Nagarjuna and Nandamuri Balakrishna (they belong to Chiranjeevi ‘s generation), exciting game is going on among star heroes in Tollywood. Mahesh Babu has said in past that there is no No. 1 hero in Telugu cinema and there will only be No. 1 film. But the discussion on competition among heroes is presently being noticed. Three heroes are competing for No. 1 position in Telugu film industry. They are 1.Prabhas with blockbuster Baahubali. 2.Pawan Kalyan who collected 80 crores with Attharintiki Daredi and 60 crores (so far) with Sardaar Gabbar Singh that is running with flop talk. 3.Mahesh Babu who broke all non-Baahubali records with Srimanthudu. These three are in race for the first position, hence occupying top three places. Coming to the fourth position, three heroes are competing for it.
The first hero to be discussed among them is NTR. He has all the qualities that could make him No. 1 hero in Tollywood. Great dancing skills, amazing and powerful dialogue delivery, looks like Sr. NTR, ability to star in historical characters are the abilities of Jr. NTR. But the actor is failing when it comes to chosing the right story and the right director. Politics are also hindering the growth of NTR. Nannaku Prematho is the only film of NTR to cross the 50 crore mark. We have to see if he will join the Top 3 or will occupy fourth position with Koratala Siva ‘s Janatha Garage.
There is no doubt that Allu Arjun is the best when it comes to dancing. Bunny does any character with ease but he did not yet get the one right film that will take the actor to top 3 ranks. Allu Arjun has got the mega fan base, his producer father Allu Aravind ‘s abilities and his kind heart as strengths. We should wait and see if he will make it to top 4 or break Srimanthudu records and occupy a place on top 3.
Ram Charan who entered Tollywood with Chirutha as the heir of megastar Chiranjeevi has had no proper hit other than Magadheera. Though he is good at dancing, Cherry should improvise more when it comes to acting skills and he is competing for the top fourth position as well. Thani Oruvan might be the one in his career to make him one among top 4. We might have to wait till 2017 to witness what happens.
So, depending on the response of Sarrainodu, Janatha Garage and Thani Oruvan remake, the top 4 on list of Tollywood heroes can be decided.
