Chiranjeevi - The Actor
of being the most sought after commercial star, Chiranjeevi, being
a Film Institute product, had the urge to do off-beat roles. Time
and again he has tried his hand at such roles in films such as
Bharathi Raja's Aradhana, K
Balachander's Rudraveena and K
Viswanath's Swayamkrushi and
Aapadbandhavudu. The last two films
won him the best actor award from the Andhra Pradesh Government.
Rudraveena got him the coveted Nargis
Dutt national integration award at the Central Govt level.
But except for Swayamkrushi which was a moderate success, the
others failed at the box office.
Apart from the above
artistic value movies, Chiranjeevi also did couple of strong
message oriented movies in the form of Tagore and Stalin and both
were blockbusters with more than 30 crores of revenue.
Chiranjeevi is going to complete three decades into the telugu
film industry and in all achievements and honors, there
is no sign of pride but he is
still going successfully with a string of hit films.
