According to Industry hit list , three stars of present generation are eligible for No:1 position.
This discussion always arise whenever star heroes movies are scheduled for release. The present generation heroes like Pawan Kalyan , Mahesh Babu & Ramcharan have one each industry hit till now.
Pawan Kalyan gave a industry hit with Kushi in way back 2001 , already 12 years done . He has no chance to give industry hit as his movies are not ready for release . So, the competition lies between Mahesh & Charan.
Mahesh Babu is more experienced than Charan , Mahesh gave a industry hit Pokiri in 2006 almost 6 years completed. His next movie ‘ Seethamm Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu’ is ready for release this sankarthi. If this movie tends to become a Industry Hit , Mahesh can be called as No:1 star of Tollywood as he carries maximum number of Industry hits in recent time.
Coming to Ramcharan , Although he is very junior to above stars , He has a industry hit with Magadheera in 2009 , almost 3 years done. If Cherry’s Naayak tends to become a industry hit , Ramcharan can be called as No:1 star of Tollywood as he carries maximum number of Industry hits in recent time.
So, Either Mahesh or Ramcharan can be No:1 star , If this formula is implemented. But, Mahesh has disadvantage , He cannot take the credit of SVSC success as it is a multi-starrer and at the same time Ramcharan cannot be called as No:1 as he already announced that Pawan Kalyan is the No:1 hero of Tollywood after Chiranjeevi in Naayak audio function.
