In terms of the awards, the definitions have changed for the best actor. Usually, the actor who impress the audience with their acting skills used to get this award. But now, the hero whose movie became a blockbuster is getting it.
Usually most of the time, the star heroes will win this award and the small heroes will be satisfied with the nominations. But it seems like the trend is changing and the Filmfare management is also selecting the nominees sincerely. Recently, the nominees list for the best actor award for jio Filmfare Awards South 2018 came out. The nominees are Megastar Chiranjeevi for Khaidi Number 150, Nandamuri Balakrishna for Gauthami Putra Satakarni, Prabhas for Bahubali: The Conclusion, NTR for Jai Lava Kusa and Venkatesh for Guru movie.
The last but not least actor who is in this race is none other than Vijay Devarakonda for his outstanding performance in Arjun Reddy. The sensational hit of this movie increased the fan following of this actors hugely. The young heroe like Ranbir Kapoor competed with senior heroe like Amitabh Bachchan in Bollywood. Seeing the same environment in Tollywood is really entertaining.
