Who’s Behind Best Actor Award for Jr NTR?
The Best Actor award for Jr NTR for his performance in Temper at a recent award event has set tongues wagging in tinsel town. No doubt, Tarak is good actor, dancer and he really pulled off his role well in Temper, but he walking away with the best actor beating the likes of Mahesh (Srimanthudu), Prabhas (Baahubali) that won the hearts of audiences by great margin is definitely inviting criticism from the fans of the stars and large section of movie buffs alike.
While Baahubali went onto set box office ablaze and garnered over Rs 600 Crore gross, Srimanthudu got Rs 100 Crore share, Temper said to have made Rs 35 – 40 Crore. Although the film’s BO collections not necessarily the benchmark while choosing the winners, there’s no denying that they do play a crucial role. Many are suspecting that a leading family in the industry which holds a sway in the channel have allegedly manipulated as per their whims and fancies by surprisingly bringing NTR into the scene. Mahesh Babu, Pawan Kalyan, Allu Arjun and Prabhas are in the top four (not in order) and NTR is no where close to these given his poor performance in the recent times (barring Nannaku Prematho which had a close shave).
Rumours are rife that it’s a conspiracy hatched by the family in order to save a star hero who’s successor to one of the biggest stars of the generation and is struggling to make comeback. Buzz is that to save the star hero’s scion, and announced Tarak as the Best Actor.
This is definitely not a healthy trend and several critics, fans are raising serious concerns.
