Is 2018, Lucky or Unlucky for Telugu stars?

Mon Nov 26 2018 20:13:13 GMT+0530 (IST)

Almost all star films that we can wait anxiously with expectations have been released for the year. Vijay Devarakonda rose as a Star this year and he has no more films to release this year.

December won't see any star hero film releases from Telugu as Vinaya Vidheya Rama, F2, NTR Kathanayakudu will release for Sankranthi. So, let's see how lucky this year has been for our stars at a glance.

*Seniors like Megastar Chiranjeevi, Nagarjuna, Balakrishna and Venkatesh cannot be considered in the box office rush that today's stars are in!

Pawan Kalyan

Agnyathavasi flopped big time even tainting the brand name of writer and director, Trivikram Srinivas.  But the actor as politician is been able to make some giant strides in terms of gaining popularity for his agenda. Janasena seems to be getting buzz in public.

Mahesh Babu

The actor after a huge debacle like Spyder, came back with a huge hit like Bharath Ane Nenu. He continued his 2 flops followed by one hit routine that started with Nenokkadine. He is busy with commercials and Maharshi. He is looking to break the trend with Maharshi.

Ram Charan

The actor came back with a bang. After Magadheera he delivered a very popular blockbuster with Rangasthalam. Nobody expected it to become such a huge hit. Not even the makers. His Vinaya Vidheya Rama is the most anticipated film for Sankranti and he started the biggest multi-starrer RRR, shoot with Jr. NTR in the direction of SS Rajamouli.


One of the worst nightmarish years for Jr. NTR, personally as he lost his father, Nandamuri Harikrishna. On the work front, he helped Trivikram Srinivas gain back his respect with Aravindha Sametha and started RRR with Ram Charan and SSR!


He left his fans wanting more and Saaho teaser is the only thing from the hero this year. And it seems to be enough for fans to wait for another 9 months. He also started his next after Saaho.

Allu Arjun

The hero tried to make content driven masala film with Naa Peru Surya. But it did not work at the box office. He still sid not announce his next film.


The actor delivered two films. One KrishnaArjuna Yuddham became a huge flop and another Devdas, with senior star like Nagarjuna turned out to be an average.  His Bigg Boss stint as an anchor got him more bad name than good. He has put it all behind and is working hard on his next release, Jersey.

Vijay Devarakonda

Vijay Devarakonda has become a star with Geetha Govindam and he is looking to grow even bigger with Taxiwaala and personal promotions. His attitude is making him bigger and bigger! 2018, can be marked his best year.

Naga Chaitanya

In his bid to become bigger star hero than his family name that guarantees a place, this year too, Naga Chaitanya Akkineni couldn't really produce a film with box office X-factor. Savyasachi has been biggest disappointment but Shailaja Reddy Alludu is a better commercial film for him at box office.


May be the  only hero with most uneventful year. His Srinivasa Kalyanam and Chal Mohan Ranga became disasters from the first day at the box office.


In the ladies, we can say that Anushka is the only one who can really open a film at the box office on par with stars. She did only one movie, Bhaagamathie and that became a big hit, this year.
