The questions about future of any talented actor, hurts us too. We all see them as the replacements of some legends and few really grow and few fail.
Allari Naresh is thought of a replacement of Rajendra Prasad, Naresh for comedy hero and family hero slots. Even though he is not expected to be a star like Jagapathi Babu, many expected him to last as long as Srikanth.
But the actor like Venu Thottempudi faded out after good 5 years. But Naresh before those 5 golden years had to struggle for 6 years from 2003 to attain such reputation.
EVV coming back into form and making low budget yet great comedy films helped Naresh from 2009 - 2014 to give some good hits and improve market.
From 2015 and mainly, after demise of EVV, he had to fight the box office battle alone and by 2018, he lost all the market, even though he did complete 50 films.
Now, Mahesh Babu's Maharshi like Vedham has to give him his life back or at least give him fame like Gamyam. The actor did try Nenu, Pranam before he decided to work only as comedy hero.
He needs Maharshi to do big things for him and not end up like Nenu or Pranam. Let's see if he can make a name even though there is Mahesh in the film.
