Megastar chiranjeevi ruled tollywood from 1983 to 2007 as a number one hero. Later, he baptized as a politician. Obviously, his position has to be occupied by some other hero in tollywood, fulfilling the Telugu quote, 'KOTHANEERU VASTHE PAATHANEERU KOTTUKUPOTHUNDI.'. Strangely, the number one aspirants of present generation are still compared to chiranjeevi, though the former was retired from movies 7 years ago. When chiranjeevi ruled the roost of tollywood, his name alone could chant by then media and people and they never ever used the name of previous number one to compare with chiranjeevi. That was the own identity created by chiranjeevi. Obviously, it conveys the message that the real number one hero should grow on his own image without getting the benefits of comparing and criticizing the previous number one hero. Incidentally, though chiranjeevi not in cine field, his successors such as Pawan Kalyan and Ram Charan hold all the industry records with them, another shade of chiranjeevi's craze!!
