Posted By Johnson Ajiboye

Tollywood, also known as Telugu cinema, is a part of Indian cinema dedicated to producing motion pictures in the Telugu language.

With a rich history dating back to the early 1900s, Tollywood has seen the rise of legendary actors who have amazed audiences with their talent and charisma.

We’ll explore the origins of Tollywood, the iconic actors who have reigned supreme, and the rising stars who are making their mark on the industry.

The Birth of Tollywood

Tollywood’s journey began in 1912 with the production of silent films. The first Telugu movie, “Anusha Adusumalli,” directed by Raghupathi Venkaiah and R.S Prakash, was released in 1921.

Over the years, Tollywood has evolved, embracing various genres and themes, from mythological and religious tales to social issues and folklore legends.

The Legends Who Paved the Way

Sr. NTR and ANR were the legendary predecessors of Telugu cinema. These iconic actors dominated the industry during their time and set the stage for future stars.

Chiranjeevi, Balakrishna, Nagarjuna, and Venkatesh emerged as the new pillars of Telugu cinema, mesmerizing audiences with their versatile performances.

With his dance moves and commercial film success, Chiranjeevi became the undisputed King of Tollywood for 25 years.

The Rise of New Age Heroes

As the older generation of actors stepped back from the limelight, a new breed of talented actors emerged to carry the torch forward.

Pawan Kalyan, Mahesh Babu, Jr. NTR, Prabhas, Allu Arjun, and Ram Charan are among the rising stars who have gained immense popularity and a dedicated fan base.

Prabhas, with his pan-Indian appeal and monumental success in the “Baahubali” series, has become a force to be reckoned with in the industry.

Mahesh Babu has claimed his place as the King of Tollywood in recent years with his charm and versatile acting.

Box Office Dominance

The success of a film is often measured by its performance at the box office. Several films have profoundly impacted Tollywood, capturing audiences’ hearts and shattering box office records.

From the epic “Baahubali” series to the high-octane action of “Saaho” and the emotional rollercoaster of “Arjun Reddy,” Tollywood has consistently delivered blockbusters that have enthralled audiences.
