Have you ever wondered? What if, Hollywood movies were made in Tollywood? No no, hear me out. I am not saying replace these actors with one of ours. Of course, there isn’t any comparison. But, Hollywood is one industry that covered almost all possible genres of film making. In recent times, Tollywood has also started experimenting with different genres. So in a hypothetical situation, if a story line similar to that of a Hollywood movie was scripted for Tollywood, how would that turn out? Who would fit the role and do justice to these universally popular actors? Here are a few ideas that we, at the Telugu Film Nagar, thought might be interesting to share.
1. Thor – This is one of the top hits of Marvel. Thor is a powerful but arrogant demigod who was cast out of Asgard by his father Odin to live among the mortals. The story goes on to show how he saves mortals from worldly dangers and his struggle to get back his weapon, the hammer (Mjolnir.) However, his biggest enemy remains his own brother, Loki. They do not get along well. Now keeping this fact in mind, we believe a similar story line can work with Megastar Chiranjeevi and Power star Pawan Kalyan. Well, putting the God and banished from home part aside, differences among brothers might work out well.
You are considering it now, aren’t you?
2. Civil War – No, not the American civil war out of history. Captain America: Civil War starring Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man) and Chris Evans (Captain America.) Now these are both exceptional actors. Even their fictional counterparts are extraordinary in their own way. We saw them work together in the Avengers series. However, in this movie, they are pitted against each other and end up forming clans with their respective supporters. Now keep the story line in mind and think, who are the two extremely popular actors in Tollywood who have a similar amount of fan following but like two different clans? Yes, Megastar Chiranjeevi and Nandamuri Balakrishna. These superstars aren’t just stars for the Telugu cinema fans, they are treated like gods.
Comparing the concept of the movie and the reality of these two stars with their fan clans, a Civil war kind of movie might do good. What say?
