Megastar Chiranjeevi is right now winning accolades because he is one of those early birds who identified the need to stop film shooting in order to avoid spreading of COVID-19 further. After his ‘Acharya’ stopped all the activities, others followed the suit, while the total lockdown of Telugu states now left no secret shoots as well.
Apparently Chiranjeevi is said to be listening to stories from few directors, though he has to stop it from Monday. Those who have approached Chiru prior to that are saying that Megastar now wants only those type of stories. He is only looking at commercial films that work at the box office and Acharya is an example of that. But why wouldn’t Chiru pick up path-breaking scripts?
Back then, Chiranjeevi has done films like Rudraveena and Apadhbandhavadu, two films that showcased a new side of him. Today they are rated as classics, but then, those films are super duper flops back then. Same is the case with Chiranjeevi’s Sye Raa as well, as the costume drama that chronicle history of a Telugu rebellion ended up a dud at the box office (except at Telugu box office), leaving Ram Charna’s hands burnt.
