May is a month of many happenings in Telugu film industry. The failures, the controversies, the news continued to keep the industry in discussion. Here is M9News’s Top 10 Popular Stars (aka Newsmakers) in the month of May.
1. Ram Charan
Ram Charan has attended Legendary NT Ramarao’s Centenary celebrations and delivered a beautiful speech. He won the hearts about the way he spoke about NTR and how he fondly addressed Balakrishna and Chandrababu Naidu.
2. Mahesh Babu
Mahesh Babu triggered a storm on social media with his review about Mem Famous movie a day before the release. While the criticism is unfair what we felt, the Superstar was in news continuously. And to wind up the month of May, he made a splash with an energetic outing in Guntur Karam Mass Strike.
NTR was in news for two kinds of reasons this month. The decision to skip NTR Centenary celebrations for his Birthday celebrations abroad did not go well with a section of fans. And then, there is the first look of Devera which has got a sensational response.
Anasuya made a veiled attack on Vijay Deverakonda for no reason and has come under attack from Netizens.
5. Vijay Deverakonda
Vijay Deverakonda is back in news with a nice melody with repeat value, the first single of his Kushi. The song is topping the music charts for around a month.
6. Bandla Ganesh
Bandla Ganesh is back once again attacking Trivikram for no reason.
7. Naga Chaitanya
Naga Chaitanya’s Custody released this month and ended up as a disaster. This failure means the flops streak of Akkineni family is still on.
8. Anil Sunkara
Anil Sunkara surprised everyone by tweeting a letter admitting the failure of Agent right on the third day of its release. He also humbly took the responsibility of the failure and the disappointment of fans.
9. Dimple Hayathi
Dimple Hayathi delivered a failure with Ramabanam. But her off-screen tussle with a Police officer in her community which led up to legal cases became a hot topic. The issue also revealed her live-in partner to the world for the first time.
10. TG Vishwa Prasad
TG Vishwa Prasad’s People Media Factory delivered a disaster like Ramabanam this month. While the failures are not anything new for producers, the way PMF is generating failures with overfocus on quantity while ignoring quality has become a discussion. Towards the end of the month, the humongous deal they offered for Adipurush AP and Telangana rights also became a big talking point.
