3 Jr. 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...

4 Prabhas

He creates thunders in the Anti's hearts.. It's the name which makes Our hair to Raise.

He has the Attitude which every one tries to Hire..!

Innocence and charm took birth from his smile.

The spark in his eyes makes the Fans go Crazy

The first 8 pack body in the history of Telugu cinema

He Became style icon for new new generation.

5 Allu Arjun Allu Arjun is an Indian film actor who primarily works in Telugu cinema. After playing as a child artist in Vijetha and as a dancer in Daddy, Arjun made his adult debut in Gangotri. Arjun then appeared in Sukumar's debut film Arya.

Good acting skills and good looks. Bunny was one of the actors that I grew up with, as I am a younger person, and I have truly learned to grasp how good Telugu cinema is because of him.

He is the best star ever. He should be the number one for this generation. He is the most stylish actor. He is smart...

Dancing dynamite... Galz ka dil ki daadkaan... Stylish star... Youth icon...
style and blood... Dance and genes... Acting and nerves... Totaly he is mr. Perfect... Bunny rocks... You know something he is so expressive...

He fits his star tag as he is indeed the Stylish Star. His look in every movie changes. His movies are very different and all create a trend in society. His dance is just incredible. His acting is also near perfect.

6 Ram Charan Teja

His acting should be improved. But good dancer. He has following of his father

He has a many qualifications to become a top 1 hero

Cherry has Background, But he proved himself with his own talent.
Nice dance & new style & nice dialogue delivery, Nice fights, best voice & nice physic these all are Assets of cherry,
He did new things in every movie,
He did few movies when we compare remaining top heroes, but he will shake them also.

Best actor with great expressions and emotions also best dancer in tollywood. He proved himself in the 1st movie and still acting quite well much better than those idiotic heroes like NTR. No comparison with others. He is a fresher but still have huge fan following. Best of luck Cherry for your upcoming movies.

7 Ravi Teja

He is very energetic person. His movies are very enjoyable movies and he is very hard work person, with out any film background.

True star so realistic acting ravi teja rocks nice actor

He is only star in present day with his hard work and dedication successfully completed 25yrs in industry..he came without any background but now he earned taglines like Massraja, Andhra Amithab, Mass Maharaja etc., Hope kick2 will be biggest hit in his career till date which is going to release on Aug 21st of this month.

Many of them don't know after mahesh.. raviteja is only start in industry to get place in Forbes 100 celebrty list 3 times and Also only start from South film industry who appeared in top 1 to 3 position in terms of Fame

8 Chiranjeevi

CHIRU is the god of tollywood because he is only the man who teaches how to reach a great and number 1 position only by HARD WORK...he is definitely an inspirable person to all the youth in Telugu states and all the people who loves him across the world...not only by me great persons across India praises and admires him a lot because of his politeness,giving respect to others...

Chiru established an eye bank and blood bank and because of his charisma and craze the fans and loving crores of people across the world are being inspired...did and also doing so much charities by his lovable fans...and serves the poor a lot...

One of the legendary of cinema AMITABH BACHAN said in function that ' CHIRANJEEVI gaaru is THE KING OF Indian CINEMA'...

He is definitely the supreme hero,the mega star...and one and only superstar of Indian cinema mainly south Indian cinema...

YOU are the 1 body can replace YOU...

This is too stupid. Chiranjeevi is a legendary actor. He is all time best actor in not only in telugu industry. He is MEGASTAR remember that. He is the only indian actor who played a lead role in a HOLLYWOOD film (ABU). He should be number 1 without any second question. If you don't know be calm. Stop making these cheap rankings.

Seriously when u are rating for the best actors of all time how can u even think of anyone in the 1st place other than MEGA STAR CHIRANJEEVI.. He is the greatest actor of TFI. If I have to tell the things he achieved this section will not be enough. All the Telugu people knows abt him and his hard work.. Even if there are many anti fans for him. They still can't hate him for his hardwork. The hero who can dance with grace. Can deliver dialogues with intense base voice. Can fight like never before. What not. The placement for MEGA STAR is not correct in this list. He shd be at the top. And even other actors of his time shd be placed at the top. The 4 actors CHIRANJEEVI, BALAKRISHNA,VENKATESH,NAGARJUNA these are the 4 pillars of Tollywood.. They must be in the top 4 places.

Chiru is top1 in tollywood... How can mahesh is 1st with lot of flops dan hits

9 Nagarjuna

NTR, ANR and Krishna are superstars and great actors. NTR, Krishna are superstar than being great actors. ANR is Great actor than being a star.

Chiranjeevi is the big superstar than being an actor and Nagarjuna is the better actor than being superstar. They are equals. Remaining actors in this generation are still stars. They can't be superstars.

He is the true actor who always makes experiments all time with different roles in different categories. The true great actors should taste all flavors of acting. That is only one from tollywood that is NAG... The actors should deserve that credit in all categories rather than to sticking on to one or two categories like Nagarjuna Akkineni.

The only actor who has same following in bollywood and Tamil movies also and did many no. of roles and had a hit of all type genres.. and only hero who received 2 national awards in same year as best actor and best producer for two films ninne pelladata and annamayya and did a trend setting movie shiva which is a huge hit telugu as siva and in Hindi shiva and Tamil udayam all three are blockbusters.. a versatile hero who can do any role and he will never show his image for doing a charcter like a beggar in krishnarjuna movie.

Nag the trend setter. No one can reach him in acting. He made so many different roles, he shows so many variations in movies. Nag the great actor who gives chance to new directors. And he is great in his humanity, in that he is top.. And he is also top in frankness

10 N.T. Rama Rao

Yeah, just watch one scene (mono action dialogues when draupadi insults Duryodhana in Mayasabha) if not the entire movie from DVSK movie to realize what an extraordinary actor NTR was and no comparisons with him, not even any one from Hollywood would match his acting panache. Of course he is the best in Indian Cinema and no one can come close to his mythological roles except for another legendary actor from Telugu cinema, SVR garu for dialogue delivery. NTR had great looks in addition to his powerful dialogue delivery skills. Truly Yugani ki Okkade and that is the great Senior NTR. No questions asked!

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

Comparing with all telugu actors... He is the best actor ever... HE is an all rounder... Gracy dances with expressions... True acting skills.. And more over a good human being... After sr. NTR, krishna, chiru.. For sure tat top chair will be occupied by NTR... Love you NTR...
And last one... He can adopt any type of character with in seconds in any language.. A top class actor..
And coming to political speeches he is a legend in attracting people... A future CM...
Come on guys vote for our tarak... No hero can match him in acting skills... Its true... JAI NTR...

The only actor ever in Indian cinema who can mesmerize audience in any role in family oriented subjects, social, political, comedy, in all type genres.. and he is the only person that people can see god on screen and imagines about that god will be seems to be like NTR... Legendry actor with such a great voice and such a stunning personality jai NTR

The Contenders
11 Nitin Reddy

Great spontaneous and natural actor. He has grown as an actor and sharpened his skills over time, not to mention that he has matured and created an extraordinary sense of style. He also physically maintains himself and is very handsome. He is a natural dancer and has great comic timing. He appears as quite a humble person although he displays larger than life persona on screen. Love his films especially in the last 4-5 years good choice of script. Another thing I feel good about as a female fan is that women are never wearing skimpy clothes and always respected in his films. It goes to say that audiences will come to watch films as long as there is good story and is a clean entertainer. There is no need to portray women as sex symbols to make a hit film.

He is a very good actor... He is a very good dancer... my mother tongue is not telugu I can't understand telugu completely. still I am a big fan of NITIN because he is very handsome & his acting is very realistic.. SUPERB...

He is a young and dynamic actor who came to industry without any background

16 Kenguva Srinivasa Rao

Excellent Senior Artist. He could fit in any kinda character from comedian to Villain to a father character.

17 Prakash Raj

Natural actor. Very rare kind.

Has been able to fulfill needs of legendary villains like pran, amrish puri, amjhad khan.and the only villain who is loved more than hero in the film

Hi is a best acter

He is a dimoned in tollywood

18 Balakrishna

NATASIMHAM NANDAMURI BALAKRISHNA got great energy which is evident from his films. Apart from that, he can pull of any kind of role... Be it commercial (action) or mythological or any experimental role, he personifies his role with lot of ease and expertise. Irrespective of box office result of his movies, he always delivers excellent performance. Not to be forgotten, his remarkable fan following always gives him an edge over the others. Even after a series of disasters, his movies open to earth-shattering response. Undoubtedly, he possesses best box-office stamina compared to others. His recent Blockbuster "LEGEND" collected 45cr nett where as his contemporaries have not even reached 30 crore. Can be strongly reckoned as the best telugu actor. JAI NBK!

Thanks for giving the voting option, based on this if we select number one hero that is waste of time because 80% of movie lovers don't know how to connect the internet, it may be ntr, pawan or mahesh... Only talent matters not the fake records or fake publicity... But I am suggesting all that.. Don't blame other heroes.. They all r happy why should fans are quarreling.. Think all are educated people.. Please try to build a friendly nature between the fans

He is only one in Tollywood who do all roles his movies even flop movie run 100 days in rayalaseema he has huge fan base
Simha collect 30 share 2010 highest collect movie
Legend collect 45 share box king in tollywood jai NBK

NBK is one and only real hero of tollywood. Despite his movies result, he always gives rocking performance.

19 Venkatesh

Venkatesh is an awesome actor who can do any kind of roles and he is having a huge following from all type of audience and he is very friendly with all his fans and co stars and always with a positive attitude. We love him with all these qualities. He have the most success rate that no one else can hold of his generation. Victory venkatesh always rocks...

I want to met venkatesh at least one time,because he is the fantastic hero and I would like suggest venkatesh sir please don't offer for multi star films, why because your having different image towards audience specifically towards ladies. Your only the real hero looking very beautiful comparing to others.

I am very big fan of him and he was the only star having high success rate

Venky is king tollywood with more number of successful movies in his career and he is also an experimental hero in tollywood... I am hardcore fan of VICTORY VENKATESH... His Style and dressing is also awesome in all movies... He is a wonderful actor in tollywood...

20 Krishna

Krishna Should be TOP in the list. He's the one who did a lot to Tollywood than anyone.
All other actors are selfish. He's the only one who released 17 films in one calender year and 12 are 50 days and 8 out of them are 100 days and 3 are silverjubilees.
Once a time Krishna won the superstar title consecutively for 6 years which was conducted by a leading filmy weekly and they stopped that survey thinking that waste to continue this and they confirmed Krishna is evergreen SUPERSTAR. NTR was scared of seeing Krishna following at that time.

He was the Top Star between Late 70s and Late 80s.

SuperStar with the biggest fan following during his time

I love Super Star & Natasekhara Krishna very much. He is rear superstar in Indian Silver Screen.

Very good human being and versatile actor

21 A.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,
Who is who ...more

He is truly god of tollywood. He has brought film industry from Madras to Andhra Pradesh. All Telugu actors should be very thankful to him.
