Chiranjeevi after making his debut became a phenomenon with in no time with his daring, dashing and dynamic heroism on silver screen. His breathtaking dances, powerful dialogues and stunning stunts became talk of the town and no one was able to match his performances. He became supreme hero and super star enjoying immense mass following.
However even the invincible mega star tasted rare defeats at the hands of his contemporaries and a tinge of disappointment could be felt in his interactions with media. While he lavished praises on King Nagarjuna on his performance as ‘Shirdi Sai’, Mega Star very well know he did not have the kind of devotional hits which King Nag enjoys in his career. Nag has ‘Annamayya’ and ‘Sri Ramadasu’ and now ‘Shirdi Sai’ which any actor would love to trade for parting all their success name and fame along with it.
Similar is the case with Balakrishna who featured in mythological films like ‘Sri Krishnarjuna Vijayam’, ‘Pandurangadu’, ‘Aditya 369’, ‘Bhairava Dweepam’ and crowned all this with mega venture ‘Sri Rama Rajyam’. Chiru will be surely disappointed in his heart of hearts that why film makers did not come with creative and mythological roles to him. He can only draw solace in his ‘siva tandavam’ dance with Meenakshi Seshadri in Apadbandhavudu and Lord Shiva role in Arjun starrer ‘Sri Manjunatha’.
