Tollywood is ruled by powerful families of top stars and film makers many a time to generate interest in film and create pre release buzz rope in family members to do cameos. This converts the film into a crazy project and many expect the film to mint money at the box office. However the situation is quite different and many feel that though the film may get huge openings on the first day, when the interest fizzle out, the film turn out to be a flop at the box office.
Except for Magadheera where Chiranjeevi makes special appearance along with Ram Charan other films turned out to be a flop. One rembers Super Star Krishna’s appearance in Prince Mahesh Babu’s Takkari Donga, and others did not generate much interest in the film and the films bombed at the box office. More recently Prabhas ‘Rebel’ featured Krishnam Raju in powerful role but it failed miserably. One can say the same with Ukodatara Ulikipadatara in which Manchu Lakshmi appeared in a special role for her brother Manchu Manoj but the film did not do well at the box office.
Now doubts are being cast with Venkatesh joining Rana’s ‘Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum’. How Venky’s inclusion effect the film in the long run has to be seen on silver screen.
