A film with director SS Rajamouli is a boon as well as bane for the star heroes. The Telugu film industry is already aware of this and has many examples to cite. We now look at the three stars who are in the radar currently.
Prabhas has made two Baahubali films and is now a nationwide phenomenon due to them. He is getting ready with his next Saaho, which is coming with immense hype. Everyone is keen to see Prabhas, but they are the same time unsure about Sujeeth. It is a gamble, and the result will be known only on August 30th.
The next are, Tarak and Charan. They have both worked with SS Rajamouli in the past. Jr NTR, has, in fact, worked twice (leaving Student No 1). On both the occasion, it was difficult for him to get out of the expectations and mania set by SS Rajamouli. Charan, on the other hand, came with his career-best disaster.
Based on the present rumours and gossips, it seems Tarak well determined to overcome this jinx. He is planning his moves in advance. There is a film with KGF director Prasanth Neel in line. And now, the talk about a Trivikram Srinivas film has resurfaced. Depending on the script, it would be decided when the Trivikram movie would get on sets. Charan, meanwhile, is looking at a film with Vamshi Paidipally. He seems to be a bit uncaring about future combinations, at the moment.
Given how these various stars are tackling the post- SS Rajamouli conundrum, it can be said Tarak is more careful out of the lot. He seems to understand the importance of maintaining momentum and gaining on the mileage that an SS Rajamouli gives.
