Top Telugu Actors of All Time

The Top Ten
1 Pawan Kalyan

He's just amazing actor... Very different from other actors... He just follows his own way... Independent on others...

I like Pawan Kalyan because of his attitude and personality along with his style of acting. He is very simple, kind hearted, sincere, independent, social service, respect towards the people, society and nation and so on... As an actor he has an unique style of acting and a trend setter. He is a role model and inspiration for his followers and many others. I don't like to compare him with others because he is one of his kind. He was able to start a new religion called 'PAWANISM'. It time for his followers to keep it into practice by working for the betterment of the society as a respect to our star. Jai Hind...

It started in the year 1998, when I was in my 5th standard saw this great personality on screen
Was amazing in all aspects all the way some awesomeness was depicting,it carried over till date, I never strive to watch movies, its him who makes me drive towards theatres to watch him on screen, now I declare I strive to watch him on screen 1st day 1st show at any cost. I make calls, roam here and there, will always be online to check the status for online ticket booking to watch only our power star on screen.

This love towards him is endless, and will never end

TV9 - Rajinikanth raves Pawan Kalyan's acting in Gabbar Singh...!

Power Star Pawan Kalyan's latest film Gabbar Singh is one of the most appreciated movies of our time. Popular filmmakers like D Ramanaidu, Dasari Narayan Rao and several others have watched it and lauded its entertainment quotient. The latest to praise is none other than South Indian superstar Rajinikanth.
Yes! Rajinikanth has reportedly watched the movie Gabbar Singh at a special screening that was arranged by the local distributor in Chennai for him and his family members yesterday. The actor, who enjoyed the movie with his family, described it as a perfect mass entertainer.

Gabbar Singh is a comic-action movie and Rajinikanth, who is known for his wonderful action and comedy, was carried away by Pawan Kalyan's superb action and perfect comedy timing in the movie. The Tamil superstar could not stop raving his performance after he came out of the theatre.

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.

He is the absolutely number one hero in the Tollywood.. He is the one of the best dancer in India...

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

This generation heroes have certain limits for their acting capabilities to project but I think ntr is the only person who don't have any barriers or limits. He has proved his each and every capability like dance (yamadonga), rakhi (sentiment) and if I say like this the list goes on and one more thing is that even in his disastrous movie shakti he tried something different and satisfied his fans... Now a days people think that tarak has stopped dancing to his capacity but I strongly feel that he isn't doing so like that but he is dam=ncing according to the tunes given by his directors... Therefore I would like to say his fans not to treat him as a person of particular caste or so on (which would spoil his career) and promote movies in a good way... I am saying so because I am a huge fan of tarak and I support "tarakism"

4 Prabhas

Prabhas is stylish, Handsome and Youth icon in film industry he is acting is kekaa.

According to Following he should be in Top ten. He is having all the qualities required for a Superstar.

He is the handsome stylish hunk of tollywood he has all the quality to rule the tollywood industry within no time... For long just like NTR and CHIRU

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..!

Glamour gets a Perfect meaning after staring at him.

We are proud to have such a "PERFECT" personality as a Hero in our Cinema!

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.

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

Hey, why is it given that allu arjun has only 10th position in telugu, he will be surely in front of ram charan and nagarjuna and many others, you should not just look their fans in andhra, just look at kerala, there the 1st position is for him, moreover he dances well, I suggest you to place him at least in 5th position

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.

Allu arjun is amazing. I became his fan after watching arya. I saw him for the first time in the movie arya and after that I saw all his movies. Though he have gained weight but he still look amazing. He is not only a good actor but also a very good person. I am a north Indian girl and a huge fan of style star allu arjun.

6 Ram Charan Teja

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

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.

He is an amazing actor who can easily fit in any character he plays. Be it a lover boy of Chirutha, leader of Nayak, warrior of Magadheera or a tough police officer of zanjeer. He is just too good. An excellent dancer. It is delightful treat to eyes watching him dance. Extremely good looking actor with very good sense of styling. No wonder he is Mega Power Star.

There were so many actorS deserve the best place here...
I don know how Pawan kalyan be called as Top actor even among this list...
Where are the Actors of all time great Nageswara rao, Balakrishna, shoban babu, Krishna...
Its been a Hilarious thing if you keep Pawan kalyan in Top Ten...
Please acknowledge if hurt Some one.. But this the fact

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.

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.

Perfectionist what an actor perfect acting good dancing. Multi talented person. Even he is like Saif Ali Khan no luck but very energetic and acting

He is only start hero in industry who have all quallities to call him as a star hero but Tollywood industry still not awarded him STAR HERO tag...I don't understand why...!?

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.

Everyone knows Megastar Chiranjeevi is number 1 in TFI, its an Universal Fact. Every director and Actor in india had a dream to work with Chiranjeevi.
Every hero has huge fan following, awards, hit films. But no one can rule TFI more than 30 years in Top Position.

The only one thing I can say about him is he is all rounder.
He can do all types of roles.
He can mass, class, sentimental, romantic, faction stories. He can do justice to any role unlike other heroes.

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.

He was suitable for all types of characters... His acting was different from others & he accepted truly the cinema was hit or flop, he never tell like my was super duper hit and creating records.

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

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...

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!

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

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

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

I am proud I am d nitin state withe fans president...

Nitin is just simply awesome... Having the tremendous faculty to perform every character in a superb style...

12 Naga Chaitanya

He started his career with josh which is a very good film and further 100% love most entertaining film and his talent shows that he is one of the most promising upcoming hero.

He is simply super. And he is romantic person

Good actor of all characters.. As a loverboy acted in films like 100%love, gka laula kosam etc... Family entertainers like manam... Action films like bezawada...

He is very good person

13 Sayaji Shinde
14 Akkineni Nageswara Rao

He was very good actor but for some reasons... But very nice he was

World wide best actor

He was a good actor

He is the best actor

15 Ram Pothineni

He is simply superb and hansome and best actor comparing to other like ram charan tej, allu arjun and he has a beautiful smile which impresses all girls all the best energetic star.

You are a wonderful, awesome actor in thelugu industry. We are in Tamil nadu but we like your acting and dance everything. We also see your all movies. YOU LOOK LIKE so GOOD.

He is a awesome star... Choclate boy.. Energetic star... King of girls hearts.. Best dancer and actor... He is simply superb

The best south indian star. He is a complete package. Keep giving that awesome smile that melts the heart.

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.

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

Really not understand why NBK is at 11th position, he is the king of box office once and made many good movies, Karnataka people still more crazy on his movies. Hope he will rock again and through his challenge with younger generation.

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

19 Venkatesh

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.

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

Versatile, Virtuous, Visionary, Veracious, Valiant, Venerable, Vibrant etc. Etc.
I truly run out of words in his praise!
In all our Victory Venkatesh is the best!

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.

Superstar Krishna was the number 1 star of the 70s and 80s.

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.

He is a living legend

The best classical actor.

His acting was words less. No one can compare with him with his performance...
