PowerStar Pawan Kalyan, aka Konidela Kalyan Babu, turns 41 on the 2nd of this Sep and still endures to be undoubtedly the Box Office Bonanza Head Honcho in this era of Tollywood. To the highest degree, his fortune to earn those “devotees” – following a religious tantamount, Pawanism, who claim jubilantly so, rather than being called just fans – is not only of his acting skills, but also of his charismatic and undulated attitude towards life. His blood brother, Megastar Chiranjeevi also may have earned such an immense fan force in numbers during his apex times, but this myriad intensity of zealousness is credited to the one and only Pawan Kalyan in South Indian Film Industry, succeeding that for the SuperStar Thalaivar Rajnikanth.
Not many people forecast or even dream of such a chase to the peak in their professions. So did PowerStar, whom most tollywood pundits downplayed, to cash in his chips and crawl out of films, following a string of flops in his career. But the proliferating fan base, who stood by his thick and thin through out, isn’t disappointed and have commenced celebrations of his return to form, after the success of Gabbar Singh, a mere refashioned Dabangg starring Salman Khan.
Only 17 movies drove him to that we’ve spoken above, with his 18th, Cameraman Ganga tho Rambabu, in brief Cameraman Ganga Tho Rambabu, which also happens to be the 25th venture for director Puri Jagannadh, under production. The surmounting expectations around this film are due to the reunion of PowerStar and Jagan after Badri in 2000. These 12 years have seen the walk, run, fall and resurrection of Jagan as a director, who was launched by and is obligated to Pawan Kalyan all along his career.
Cameraman Ganga Tho Rambabu also features Prakash Raj, Kota, Brahmi, Ali, Bharani apart from the female title lead dame – Tamannaah and Gabriela Bertante (Item number in Devudu Chesina Manushulu, DCM). Shyam K Naidu, the in house cinematographer for Puri, is working for this film after Julayi. Mani Sharma, after a period, is composing music for Pawan Kalyan’s film after Kushi, Gudumba Shankar, Balu ABCDEFG and Theenmaar, hoping to return to the big league music clique of Tollywood.
Another candy from Baba Sehgal’s confectionery after Jalsa and Gabbar Singh, is expected to be released on the eve of PowerStar’s birthday, alongside the first look of CGR. Baba Sehgal tweeted – “Let me clarify that d power song which I made for pawan kalyan is now included in Cameraman Ganga Tho Rambabu as a main song..” – about the power song and this song is rumored to be included in Cameraman Ganga Tho Rambabu. So, Wishing the PowerStar a very happy and special birthday !!
