Telugu Film Industry has revived the machismo of Indian cinema. The revolution of sorts which was kickstarted by SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali in 2015, has well and truly reached the entire world. While Hindi cinema was at its lowest, the south Indian film industry led by the Telugu industry rose above all to deliver massive box office scores.
With the current PAN India phenomenon, it is evident that all those who have looked down on the south cinema, have finally pleaded for them. Before Pathaan, the Hindi film industry did not have a clean hit for several months. Ironically, the ones which clicked at the box office were either directed by directors from the south or were remakes of south films.
On the morning of March 3, 2023, an announcement took all the Allu Arjun fans by a pleasant surprise. The announcement made the collaboration between Allu Arjun and Sandeep Reddy Vanga official. This adds to the list of several other ‘larger-than-life’ projects which the Telugu A-list actors are going to be a part of, in the years to come. Here is a list of the official projects with A-listers at the helm of it, which have all the capability of breaking box office records, and gaining international markets.
Amongst all the stars in the Telugu Industry, Nani is referred to as one of the most complete actors by many. The talented actor has fine-tuned his career with content-heavy and mass movies. The actor will be next seen in a movie named Dasara, whose teaser has generated enough excitement among the fans.
Nani will be seen playing a character based out of a village, locking horns against the authorities, while representing the village community. Besides the storyline, it is the style of filmmaking in Dasara that has left the audience in awe. Given a powerful Santosh Narayan soundtrack to the movie will only serve as a cherry on top.
Ram Charan’s immediate release after the mega success RRR, did not fare well with the critics and the audiences. However, it is his association with a maverick director Shankar that has got everyone’s heads turning. The shooting of this high-octane courtroom drama is in full swing. There was news regarding some uncertainty about some aspects of the projects and also about probable conflicts, but none of these rumours got the official stamp.
In his recent interviews, Ram Charan said that he would prioritise working in movies that will be larger in scale and content value, post-RRR. It will be interesting to see what path he chooses after the release of RC15.
Jr. NTR received massive praise for his role in Rajamouli’s epic, RRR. The actor will be functioning in action mode, for his next few films. As far as the plot is concerned, not much is known about his next few ventures. For NTR30, Jr. NTR has collaborated with Kortala Siva, who had delivered a massive hit with the actor, with Janatha Garage.
NTR30’s poster suggests a high-octane action ride for the fans. Another major hook for the movie is the music director. Vikram fame Anirudh will be giving the music for this upcoming movie.
After NTR30, Jr. NTR is all set to collaborate with Prashanth Neel for his next big thing. Rumours suggest that the movie will operate in the same universe as the KGF series. More details on the same are awaited.
Mahesh Babu is arguably one of the biggest movies stars the Telugu film industry has ever produced. However, the actor has been on a spree of hits and misses with his movies. While his movies continue to earn big at the box office, given his stature, the fans are expecting much bigger projects from Babu.
The stars have indeed aligned for it, as SS Rajamouli has roped in Mahesh Babu for his next jungle venture. While promoting RRR in America, Rajamouli made an official announcement of the movie. He is planning to create an ‘Indiana Jones from India’. The director also stated that a few major Hollywood names will also be seen in the movie.
Given the massive success of his recent RRR, it will be interesting what different Rajamouli comes up with to surprise his fans, across the world.
