Finding a place in the film industry without any background is just an easy thing. The entry itself is a very big task and to achieve success will take you a very long time. Nani has grown in a similar way. He had no filmy background but today he is a superstar in Tollywood.
Producer Dil Raju made interesting remarks at the audio function of ”Nenu Local” a few days ago. He said “It is Ravi Teja who has become a star hero after Megastar Chiranjeevi in the last 30 years, without any backup in Tollywood. It is Nani who is growing like him after Ravi Teja.” We have to accept that Nani has evolved as star hero in the recent past. The success of Nenu Local has cemented his position as a star hero.
All his movies were ordinary. But Nani has increased the range of these movies. He played a crucial role in the success of every film which only star heroes can do. They can turn average movies into hits. So there is no doubt about Nani’s star image now. He created a market for himself. He has a tagline for himself now “the Natural Star” and it took him 10 long years to achieve this.
Minimum collections for a Nani movie are 15 crores rupees now. If it gets a positive talk, it will collect 20 crores and if it becomes a hit then it will surely go on collecting 25 crores INR. “Nenu Local” has already collected a 15 crore share in the first weekend itself. Trade analysts are predicting that the movie will collect somewhere between Rs. 25 – 30 crores in the full run.
