Every star worth wants to be the number 1 in the industry but a star
becomes a number one by having uniform acceptability among all the areas in the
state. Chiranjeevi, the last numerous Uno star from Telugu cinema was an
acceptable figure across the areas of the state and various cross sections in
each area. Unfortunately after his departure none have been able to replicate
that universal acceptability.
We have actors like Pawan Kalyan and Mahesh Babu, who are very strong in
the A centres of the state, especially Nizam but they are comparatively weaker
in the Rayalaseema area (Ceded). Similarly we have Jr NTR and Ram Charan who
are strong in Ceded territory but weaker in the Nizam area.
Among the four stars, Pawan
Kalyan and Ram Charan are closer to uniformity thanks majorly due to the great
fan base built by Chiranjeevi in all areas. So when these guys get the right movie they
put up the best numbers even in their comparatively weaker area.
The same unfortunately can’t be said about Mahesh Babu and Jr NTR and it
can be seen with the collections of their biggest hits respectively. Dookudu
despite being a blockbuster failed to go past Simha in Ceded where as it was
next only to Magadheera in Nizam at that point of time. Similarly Baadshah
starring Jr NTR entered the top 3 effortlessly in Ceded but failed to do so in
The actors seemed to understand this as well and that can be seen with
the way they planned their upcoming movies.Both are planning to attract
their weaker area by setting up their film in those regions or using the slang
of the respective regions. Mahesh Babu as we all know by now will be seen
playing an Ananthapur Cop with Rayalaseema slang as well. Similarly we have come
to know that Jr NTR too would be using Telangana slang in his forthcoming movie
Joru once again after Baadshah.
Will this movie work out, only
time has the answer for it but to be number one they certainly do need to get a
major push up in these weaker areas.
