In the olden days Tollywood has seen golden classics and super hits from top heroes starring in multi starrers. However later the trend changed and with increasing egos between stars spurred by their die hard fans multi starrers died an untimely death. Gone are the days where people can enjoy NTR-ANR acting in ‘Missamma’, ‘Gundamma Kadha’ or ‘Sri Krishnarjuna Yudham’ and many more. In between they were separated due to differences but again started acting in ‘Chanakya Chandragupta’, ‘RamaKirsnulu’ and many more films. Same is the case with NTR,Krishna, ANR, Krishnam Raju, Chiranjeevi, Sobhan Babu and many others.
Once the generation passed on to Nagarjuna, Balakrishna, Chiranjeevi, Venkatesh multistarrers disappeared as fans became more demanding and even suggesting changes in scripts not according to the story but according to their favorite hero. This resulted in film makers fearing for their lives and stopped thinking of multi starrers though Nagarjuna and Balakrishna many times expressed their wish to star in the remake of Gundamma Kadha. Their era is now nearing the end and even now Naga Chaitanya and Jr NTR have expressed their desire to star in the remake of Gundamma Kadha.
Now film makers are changing their style and with Venkatesh and Mahesh Babu teaming up for ‘Seetamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu’, Naga Chaitanya and Sunil for another film, Venkatesh and Srikanth starring in ‘Shadow’, Vikram and Jagapathy Babu in ‘Siva Tandavam’, movie lovers feel that golden days are sure to come again in tollywood. Some analysts feel that since it is becoming extremely difficult for single starrers to cross even 50 days, film makers are planning for multi starrers in their hope that at least one or the other heroes fans will help in the film successfully completing 100 days.
