For a long time, megastar Chiranjeevi has occupied the undisputed position of the superstar of Tollywood. In the wake of his quitting acting to concentrate on his political career, the seat has remained unoccupied; although Mahesh Babu and Pawan Kalyan have emerged as powerful contenders over the last two years considering two of the biggest hits of Tollywood – Mahesh’s Dookudu (2011) and Pawan Kalyan’s Gabbar Singh (2012).
However, recent times have seen the rise of success of Prabhas who has also seemed to join the race for the position. Prabhas has won the audience and proved his worth with recent films Rebel and Mirchi which has opened to unprecedented collections both in India and abroad. More recently, Prabhas is also involved in Rajamouli’s upcoming -action drama film Bahubali which has already generated a huge buzz in the industry even though it is expected to be in the making for over two years.
