This was the most frequently asked query after Megastar forayed into Politics. For a period of time, It appeared like Mahesh Babu has got the best chance. Then, Ram Charan showed he isn't far away with 'Magadheera'. NTR, on the other hand, made a strong statement with back-to-back hits since Temper. Even before any of these three could claim the Numero Uno Position, 'Baahubali' not only changed the equations but also the mindset of everyone.
Public stopped discussing about 'Who will be No.1?' after the release of the War Drama. They began accepting films on merit instead of too much boasting about the collections.
These days, Tollywood Stars were keen to improve their markets with multi-liguals rather than aiming for No.1 Position. Prabhas had done it successfully. Now, NTR and Ram Charan have been following the same path to reach out to more number of people. Stars aren't worried about who is their competitors anymore. They are focussing only on how to improve their success rate and market. So, The question 'Who is next after Chiranjeevi?' doesn't make any sense.
