Chiranjeevi and Venkatesh are star
heroes of Tollywood and before entering politics, Chiranjeevi was enjoying mega
fan base. Venkatesh is still continuing his career doing family oriented
entertaining roles. But it is heard that both these heroes owe their star break
to another person.
He is none other than superstar
Krishna. It is heard that when Krishna was the number 1 in Tollywood during the
early 80s, he got the offer for ‘Khaidi’ but he didn’t take it up and the film
went to Chiranjeevi. ‘Khaidi’ made Chiranjeevi a superstar and is considered
one of his best blockbusters till date.
Similarly, it is heard that
Krishna was approached for the other film ‘Kaliyuga Pandavulu’ but again he had
declined the film on different grounds. That film went to Venkatesh and it
became a big hit giving instant fame and success to Venky making him a star.
That way, superstar Krishna has lifted both Chiru and Venky indirectly.
