Chiranjeevi made his re-entry in 2017. Balakrishna hit a century this year and Baahubali 2 became the biggest hit this very year.
While these are cinematic milestones in Telugu industry, for four people, the year will remain memorable. And that includes Rajasekhar, Shekhar Kammula, Siddharth and Teja.
For some time now, Shekhar Kammula has been maintaining a low profile and hasn't done films for a long time. But this year, he directed Fidaa under the banner of Dil Raju and the producer's Midas touch rubbed off on him.
Fidaa ended up being a huge commercial success and a bounce back film for Shekhar Kammula, so much so that he is back in reckoning.
Similarly, hero Rajasekhar too had a rather fulfilling year. For nearly a decade now, he has been waiting for a hit film.
Garuda Vega was a dream come true film, which was a commercial hit and was well appreciated by the critics and audiences.
Rajasekhar has said that 2017 will remain a memorable year in his life. Excited by the success, Rajasekhar now plans to use the success to make big films in days to come.
Another person who was in a similar situation like Rajasekhar was director Teja. Completely out of work, there was a time when he had absolutely no takers. That's when Nene Raju Nene Mantri with Rana happened and Teja is now back in the race.
After the film's success, Teja confessed that it had been 15 years since he had such a kick. Now, Teja is all set to direct NTR's biopic with Balakrishna in the lead and another film with Venkatesh in the lead.
Hero Siddharth too tasted success this year after a long time. Following a rather low phase, Siddharth made Gruham.
While the film was not a huge commercial success, it was well received due to its high technical values. And now Siddharth is all set to take up more projects, thanks to the film.
There may be many hit films and many happy stories in the industry, but 2017 will remain a rather special year for these four people.
