The story selection of heroes has changed a lot in recent years. Previously, they used to select stories that had a lot of Telugu nativity and it used to cater to just the local audience. A lot of commercial movies used to come and entertainment is the prime element in them. Due to this, Telugu films never used to get nominated or picked for National Awards.
With time, the taste of the audiences have changed a lot and they are exposed to world cinema through digital platforms. They are watching Hollywood and other international movies along with movies from other Indian languages like Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada, Hindi, Punjabi and others. They are demanding freshness from the makers and avoiding the regular commercial content. They are preferring movies with high-quality stories and narration. Going by the trend, our heroes are also picking unique and interesting movies.
