Except Vennela Kishore and couple of others, all comedians have lost craze in Tollywood as entertainment in Telugu films today doesn’t rely solely on comedians unlike in the past.
Earlier, Brahmanandam and Sunil ruled the roost. But now no comedian can command such craze and clout.
Sunil who has been doing hero roles is struggling with his films and is now slowly moving back to comedian characters.
Brahmanandam’s era has ended long back. After two movies, even spoof-star Sampoornesh Babu has also lost appeal as ‘lead hero’.
After getting huge popularity as comedy actor, Sapthagiri turned hero and his maiden movie bombed like anything. He also lost opportunities as comedy actor.
In such scenario, Shakalaka Shankar is stepping into this zone is considered a daring attempt.
The comedian with a great comic timing is now testing his luck as hero. He plays the lead role in ‘Driver Ramudu’, a title based on old NTR’s movie.
Will Shakalaka Shankar get success?
