While Naga Babu did not achieve much success, Pawan Kalyan known as Power Star reeled under many flops for decades before managing to score hit with Gabbar Singh. However most of the scenes consisted of Mega Star Chiranjeevi’s hit songs. Ram Charan who tasted biggest defeat with Orange, made it a point to include remix songs of his dad so that his film will not turn out to be a disaster. While Rajamouli magic worked for Magadheera, in Rachcha he included Vaana Vaana and now in Naayak , subhalekha rasukunna. Sai Dharam Rej who is making his debut with Rey is also banking on Chiranjeevi’s golimar song. This shows that mega heroes are big zeores on Tollywood silver screen.
Many die hard fans of mega family feel that their heroes are the kings of Tollywood and are the born successors for the crown left by Mega Star Chiraneevi who ruled Tollywood empire unchallenged for decades. However if one see the performances of mega family heroes starting from Ram Charan Tej, Allu Arjun, Pawan Kalyan, Naga Babu and upcoming stars Sai Dharam Tej, many feel all of them are just zeroes with out the mega family tag or the usage of powerful name Megastar Chiranjeevi. Many feel if they do away with mega star name, they don’t even measure up to talented new comers in looks or performances.
