Among the die-hard fans of Mega star there has been a long debate about who will carry forward the legacy of Mega Star Chiranjeevi. Will it be Charan or Bunny?
The debate till this year, had taken a back seat, as Mega Star few years ago said, Pawan Kalyan is more like his son than younger brother and he is his next in kin. Pawan Kalyan rose from being his brother to Power Star and built an empire of fans for Mega heroes in the last two decades that in social media there are groups of fans who support only Mega star and only, Pawan Kalyan, as cults.
With Pawan Kalyan deciding to put a comma on his acting career with Agnyathavasi, a milestone film, we wonder if he will turn that comma into a pull stop with taking his political career to new heights rather than coming back to movies like Chiranjeevi.
With Chiranjeevi back, we cannot really debate on who is his next in kin, as he is still active. But the actor is not going do movies like Khaidi No.150 all the time and an younger hero is definitely needed to step up the game in favour of mega clan for coming new generation, in the absence of Power Star.
Ram Charan is the easy choice and many debate, as the son of Mega Star and also, the actor who scored an Industry Hit like Magadheera, with just second film, should be next Mega Star. But the matter is not as simple as it appears.
Mega Star is not just a name but a well-earned brand name for an actor with ultimate following among the masses. Ram Charan after Orange, fell into the traps of mass entertainers and also, has a bad name for being a single expression actor.
On the other hand, Bunny aka Allu Arjun is making a huge bid. From the point where he started to the point where he is in his career today, the actor deserves a great round of applause for making such giant leap to become the actor who has a major following in families and also, in other states like Bihar and Kerala.
Still both of them have miles ahead of them to be called as Power Star or Mega Star equivalents in Telugu Cinema. May be we still need good two to three years to say who stands where, don't you agree with us?
