Rana Daggubati entered tollywood to carry forward the legacy of Daggubati family led by Stalwarts, film maker D.Rama Naidu and victory venkatesh top tollywood hero. Unlike other heroes who chose love and romantic entertainers as safe bet for a debutant he made a sensational entry as ‘Leader’ under creative director Sekhar Kammula.
He won many laurels from film critics and movie lovers alike who praised his guts for being different. Not satisfied by the laurels he created another sensation by making his bollywood debut in ‘Dum Maro Dum’ sharing screen presence with Abhishek Bachchan. He won best debutant award from ZEE and was nominated for Film Fare award on debut.
Inbetween he starred in Nenu Naa Rakshasi and Naa Ishtam but his disinterest in tollywood is clearly visible. One feel he is aspiring for bigger roles and want to show the power of tollywood to the world. When everyone started questioning his moves, he stunned all acting with none other than Big B Amitabh Bachchab in ‘Department’.
Many times he expressed his interest in making his kollywood debut but his dream was not fulfilled. However his solace is his latest flick Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum turning out to be bilingual. He is also eyeing Hollywood debut. Many feel his intentions of taking tollywood to hollywood or even higher may be right but the moves he is making is perlplexing one and all least to say about his fans.
Not getting foothold in anyone industry he is sailing in five different boats and is unable to concentrate in any one particular region. However going by his words, Rana may opt for bollywood as he feels that he gets more performance oriented roles. To become ‘Leader’ of heroes Rana needs to do more than just starring in bollywood films.
