The discussion has come again after a very long time – Yes Tollywood Number One Actor – Star – Hero, whatever the status but the discussions are back again after this year 2011-2012 super success of Tollywood Films at Indian Box-office.
Pawan Kalyan, Mahesh Babu, NTR, Prabhas, Allu Arjun, Ravi Teja, Ram, Ram Charan, Naga Chaitanya, Manchu Manoj, Sunil are the stars who are running through success since last couple of years at telugu cinema box-office.
Pawan Kalyan undoubtedly the king of box office either way, but lacks consistency on hitting the bulls eye every time he delivers a new release like Sr. NTR and Mega Star. But had following which will never let him down, irrespective of the box office success. With recent Gabbar Singh Blockbuster who cleared all the doubts to all his juniors that Pawan Kalyan is always King of Box office at all Centers.
Mahesh Babu who took a very long break after Athidi – seen super success with Blockbuster Dookudu and Super Hit movie Businessman. His success lies in his confidence and he always been there at No.1 spot irrespective of his box office success like Pawan Kalyan but lacks mass following till date. If Mahesh continuous to rock with different variety of films in the coming couple of years – then easily he will be the numero uno at TFI.
NTR is simply like a transformer who can suit to all character irrespective of his size, age and fan following. Undoubtedly he is a mass hero and can carry a character on his shoulders. His timing of dialogues and comedy sense is like master-class. But he never tries to do movies with new directors and always runs behind successful directors who cannot elevate Tarak in a new way. After Adhurs, Brindavanam, Jr. NTR was proved that he can easily carry class characters also. He is always in the competition but lacks consistency like Mahesh Babu in delivering biggest blockbusters when needed.
Coming to other star hero’s like Ram Charan, Prabhas both should prove them self in the coming years – Prabhas is very much senior but he has to improve his dialogue delivery and other aspects which will increase his fan base all over Andhra pradesh like PK, MB n NTR. Cherry has to wait for couple of more years in competing for the No.1 slot.
No other hero in telugu film industry is near by to hold that No. 1 position in the coming years – Ravi teja, Naga Chaitanya, Manchu Manoj, Allu Arjun, Ram and Nani.
But if you take three clauses into consideration then we can Rank the above Superstars like this -
Pawan Kalyan – Never Heard Craze
Mahesh Babu – Good Looking, Ladies Fans, Craze
Jr. NTR – Mass Following, Dialogues
