3Jr. N.T.R
He brought value to the art, like his grand father, dialogue delivery, rays, navarasa tempo bhavam, the essence of odour all cannot observe and enjoy, he done and left to the public to have the same. Beauty flower is there no use, without smell, but jr ntr proved that he is beautiful flower and good acting of odour. Kalidas one slokam is there, "patting on back and telling how are you" wording on mother, child, sister, and at last on wife, but dialog is same and acting is same but the dialoguer delivery expression is differences, which is called as acting I.E. bhavam, in the wording tempo nava rasas, body language, face expression, all are important which are made by Jr. NTR. He would the future, diamond to the acting. He is not great, his teacher are great who thought all those things.
I am a huge fan of him because of his attitude. His movies has some moral to the society, he is a great dancer & matured actor
He is the absolutely number one hero in the Tollywood.. He is the one of the best dancer in India...

5N.T. Rama Rao
He is the GOD of Telugu Cinema
He is a LEGEND of Indian Cinema
He is a landmark in ANDHRA Politics
He is an encyclopedia of acting
He is the 'Man of the Masses'
He is the 'Son of the Soil'
I think this one is created and spread by a pawan kalyan fan for kind information to that fellow
IN A SURVEY HELD BY NDTV 77% VOTES WERE POLLED TO THIS GOD FATHER OF TOLLY WOOD
No words to express. Just watch "Dana veera sura karna" movie at least once in your life time. That itself gives every one a clear picture of what N.T. R is. He produced and directed the film with in 45 days and portrayed all important characters in the film. Great actor

6Chiranjeevi
King of TollyWood

Only one hero who performed Navarasas in his films

1. Sringaara - Khaidi lo Ragulutundi Mogalipoda Song is the Best Example to define it. Here and there, there are glimpses of Chiru doing it.
2. Hasya - The Classic comedy Chantabbayi is the best example of Chiru doing this rasa.
3. Bheebatsa - Watch action of Chiru in Punnami naagu when he found out that he's becoming like a snake
4. Rowdra - Appati Khaidi nunchi Monna Indra daaka ilaantivi chaala chesaadu
5. Shanta - "Cool like a Cucumber" paatralu Chiru ki kotta kaadu. Movies such as Abhilasha, Subhalekha and Rudraveena are examples of this.
6. Veera - Heroism ante Chiranjeevi ki lekkalenanni examples unnayi. Recent one is Tagore.
7. Bhaya - Go home and watch expressions of Chiru in Abhilasha to find out the exact definition of this rasa.
8. Karuna - Apadhbandavudu is a Classic Example of this. Recent gaa SD lo Chiru valla mother though chese scene kooda best example
9. Adhbuta - Watch Odiayappa o song in Apadbhandavudu to find out this

12A.N.R
He is live life artistst. The role and anr both are fighting each other as a actor he over come the role credit. The wording time, sense, tempo, ego, quality, quantity, bhavam, and the main body language is good. All are qualities fighting each other and as a actor he brought them credit to all qualities of acting. We can say he is the dictionery of the acting. As the gantasala is the pioneer devine voice singer.
To be frank earlier, no entertainment is there especially to the poor man, radio songs that from neighbour radios and village radios, listening and become fan to them. Now a day, so much media is there at free of cost, I cannot become a fan to any one. The depth of the song, the depth of the music, the depth of direction, the depth of the acting, the dept of the actors, the depth of all arts can see earlier days but not at present.
There is a hollow mark to ANR for love and lover of all.
(Poet:- Pasipapa) English & Telugu Poet. DR. R.S.R. aNJANEYULU,
