What is the criteria for it? The fans are discussing a lot regarding this. A lot has changed over the past few years and let us see who the contenders are.

Allu Arjun

Icon Star Allu Arjun joined the list of pan-Indian stars unintentionally. He did not plan to get a nationwide craze with 'Pushpa' as he did not promote the film at all in the North Indian belt. But the film turned out to be a huge hit across the country. Though Bunny did not make pan-Indian film before, he grew closer to the audience through his dubbed movies. There is a huge craze all over for his amazing dancing skills. We all know about his massive following in Kerala. There are a lot of fans for Bunny's dances in Tamil and in North India too.

He became the talk of the town now and there are comments are that he should be considered as the top hero in Tollywood.

Pan-Indian Star Prabhas

Thanks to 'Baahubali' franchise, Prabhas turned into a pan-Indian hero. The records created by him are still unbroken and even Hindi actors are unable to break the records created by 'Baahubali 2' in Northern belt. Even his 'Saaho' got very good collections despite getting a mixed talk. Interestingly, it collected more in Hindi compared to the Telugu market. His last outing 'Adipurush' was a disaster but it got hundreds of crores. He working on 'Salaar' and 'Kalki' right now which are one of the biggest projects in India at the moment. He also has 'Spirit' in his hands and he has created a name for himself. He took Indian cinema to a whole new level and is considered as the real pan-Indian hero. He is a serious contender for the number one spot.

Ram Charan

Rajamouli's magnum opus 'RRR' turned Ram Charan into a Global Star who gained a lot of international recognition. His craze grew multifold after this film and he garnered good craze in Bollywood too. He secured a big fanbase in Japan too and his craze spread all over the world. A lot of big names from Hollywood want to work with him. Legends like James Cameroon loved Charan's performance in 'RRR'. He is working on Shankar's 'Game Changer' and is making another pan-Indian flick with Buchi Babu Sana. He is lining up one pan-Indian film after another. So, is Charan taking the number one spot?


Another crazy hero in this list is Young Tiger NTR. 'RRR' took his crazy to a whole new level. His market got increased immensely and he became a known name internationally as well. The way he emoted through his eyes in 'Komuram Bheemudo' song has blown away Hollywood actors and directors. He was even offered some key roles in big scale projects abroad. He has a huge fanbase not just in Telugu states and Karnataka but in Japan and other countries as well. People are swooning over NTR in North which is why he became a part of 'War 2'. He is working on 'Devara' under Koratala Siva's direction. Is he the number one hero in Tollywood?

Superstar Mahesh Babu

Superstar Mahesh Babu who created many records in Tollywood is yet to make a single pan-Indian movie. He has a lot of craze across the nation. He does a lot of brand endorsements and his popularity all over the country is the main reason for the companies running behind him. He is working on Trivikram's 'Guntur Karam' right now and is planning to do a film with Rajamouli after that. We need to see where Rajamouli takes him after the film's release. People often say that he looks like a Hollywood star and his film with Rajamouli is expected to bring him international fame. Is this enough to call him the No. 1 hero?

Pawan Kalyan

He is in politics and lost interest in making movies. But his craze is unparalleled. His fanbase is massive and none of his films end up as loss ventures due to his immense crazy. We will see the real Pawan once he picks the right subjects. His craze and stardom did not dip a single bit even when he is juggling between politics and cinema. Just imagine what will happen if he concentrates completely on films! Can we consider him as the No. 1 hero?
