Prabhas is a pan-India superstar now. His craze and popularity have reached new heights. He has attained a sizeable market in the northern circuit and no other Telugu hero enjoys a market as big as Prabhas's at the moment. Incidentally, other Telugu superstars like Allu Arjun, Ram Charan, and Jr NTR are attempting to follow Prabhas now. They are trying their best to expand their box office reach across the country.
Allu Arjun will next be seen in Pushpa which is being promoted as a pan-India project. Mythri Movie Makers recently announced that they are spending around Rs 250 crores on the project. This makes Pushpa the costliest project in Allu Arjun's career. He is hoping to attain pan-India stardom with the Sukumar directorial. The first instalment of Pushpa is likely to release by the end of this year and the second part will be out in the latter half of 2022.
Both Ram Charan and Jr NTR who are sharing the screen space for RRR are planning to go big with their subsequent projects as wells.
Ram Charan has announced RC15 which will be helmed by maverick director Shankar. This project will be mounted on a massive scale and Dil Raju is spending big on the political thriller. He has allotted a huge budget as he is confident that the combination of Charan and Shankar will work in the film's favour and help it in registering a stellar pre-release business. Needless to say, RC15 is a pan-India film.
As for Jr NTR, he is set to collaborate with Koratala Sive for NTR30 which will be his immediate next project after RRR. Yuvasudha Entertainments are reportedly spending close to Rs 200 crores on the project. The NTR starrer will mark the coming together of star actors and technicians. It is also a pan-India film.
Well, it is very much evident that Tollywood top stars are following Prabhas and lining up big-ticket projects to increase their box office pull. Can they achieve what they are after? Only time will tell.Also, even Vijay Deverakonda is eyeing pan-India market with Liger which will be out in theatres later this year or early next year.
