Tollywood Superstars according to Rajamouli
Long time ago (probably before release of Eega movie), SS Rajamouli visited a popular Engineering college in Tamil Nadu as a guest. Students there put forward many questions before the director. One of the questions is ‘Who according to you is the superstar in Tollywood?’. To this, Rajamouli answered, “All present generation heroes are the same in my opinion but there were three superstars in past. They are NTR, SV Ranga Rao and Kota Srinivasa Rao”. Students were shocked to hear this answer from Rajamouli. They wondered, ‘NTR is fine but what is with SV Ranga Rao and Kota Srinivasa Rao? They did not star as heroes’. The director then mentioned, “According to me, a superstar is someone who performs extraordinarily. Late actors NTR and SV Ranga Rao are brilliant actors and Kota Srinivasa Rao is comparable to them. So they are Tollywood superstars according to me“.
