When you are asked to name few legends in Tollywood, you can immediately recall NTR, ANR, Bapu, K Viswanath and others. Similarly, when you are asked about superstars, you mention Superstar Krishna, Chiranjeevi, Pawan Kalyan, Mahesh Babu etc. But do you know that only one name comes when you are asked about a movie mogul.
He is none other than Daggubati Ramanaidu and even the biggest in Bollywood seek his blessings. Something like this happened recently, as per sources. The Bollywood actor Mithun Chakraborty was seen in the movie Gopala Gopala and he is the only one to reprise it from the Hindi original.
Those who noticed Mithun reveal “Mithun sir was very humble and down to earth with no starry airs. For someone who baptized Indian youth with ‘Disco Dancer’ in the 80s, it is unbelievable. He was the demigod for the masses. Even Venkatesh did not enter the industry when Mithun became a superstar. Despite all this, he was very humble and not only that, he also touched the feet of Ramanaidu and took his blessings when the movie mogul visited the sets. That is Mithun’s greatness and Ramanaidu’s legacy.”
