Tollywood Mega star Chiranjeevi made his acting debut in 1978 through the film Punadhirallu exactly 35 years ago as movie was released on 22nd september 1978 .
Chiranjeevi has ruled Tollywood for over two decades He is known as the last undisputed King of Tollywood. Although, megastar moved away from films, his records in Telugu film industry are still untouched. He holds the record of eight Industry hits while other so called top heros are not even crossed 2 films each to their credit.
Rajinikanth himself agreed that Chiranjeevi = Rajinikanth + Kamal Haasan and Latest calculations say, Chiranjeevi much greater than Pawan Kalyan + Mahesh Babu + NTR (together) as in last 30 years Chiranjeevi has done 149 films & higher success rate whereas all these three top stars combinedly done only 60+ films in their respective 10+ years of their careers.
Chiranjeevi reached such a height and left high standards to occupy the No:1 chair and the throne he left away is still vacant as none of the present top heroes reached his standards to be called as No:1 Hero.
