    Konidala Ram Charan Tej is the son of one and only dynamic and legendry Telugu hero now also a Central Minister, Mega Star Chiranjeevi.

    Even before he started to act, the Mega Star’s son had a huge fan following and millions of well-wishers as his surname triggered massive reputation for him. Ram Charan had to live up to the expectations of his father’s and uncle’s majestic image and so was on heels and toiled hard from the time he decided to enter the Telugu film industry. The future star left no stone unturned to prepare himself to carry on his father’s legacy. 

    He was trained in martial arts, gained perfection in western dance; adapted flexibility in acting and imbibed every other quality needed to be a star. It certainly was not a cake walk for the young hero to attain stardom with such tremendous expectations.

  • Career

    His uniqueness of performing as himself in a free style was unveiled through his very first cast in the movie Chirutha which was a decent hit. Charan easily conquered the hearts of all the audience, especially his father’s huge fan base in a single catch. Being able to accomplish the tag as a commercial hero in the very first film itself, Ram charan certainly spread the hopes of being the next generation Mega Star, the acting flare being in the DNA. Ram Charan received the prestigious Nandi award as the best male debut for that year. The actor was well appreciated when he received the Film fare award as the best male debut.

    The young hero’s next movie, Magadheera was a thunderstorm hit at the box office. The movie was such a huge commercial blockbuster that it broke all the collection records of every possible hit movie right from the birth of the Telugu cinema. This stunning movie fetched six filmfare awards and Charan was awarded a special jury Nandi award and a Filmfare best actor award. By then, Ram Charan was a proud son to have fulfilled what so ever was expected of him from his family and the yet bigger fan base family of the state and established himself as a star in a short period of time. 

    Apart from being a star, Ram Charan is also a young entrepreneur and an accomplished equestrian (horse-rider). His love for horses is very well known among his business circles and friends. He is the proud owner of some of the best bred horses in the world. 

    Ram Charan’s next release, Orange "could not stand up to the expectations of his earlier hit, yet the hero’s performance, dance and body language in the movie won critics appreciation." 

    Then came Racha, it was surprise call from Charan as he roped a budding director Sampath Nandi. Though Racha came up with an outdated storyline, the movie scored a huge hit and collected a whopping amount of 40 crores.

    Naayak is the first film for Ram Charan with mass director VV Vinayak. Charan played a dual role for the first time in his filmy career and as a youth leader Charan impressed the audience. This film is one of the biggest hits of the year 2013.

    Toofan (Zanjeer in Hindi) all eyes were on this film as Charan landed in Bollywood with this film. A remake of Amitabh Bachchan’s classic Zanjeer (1973) had huge expectations all over. However the movie bombed miserably at box office and ended as biggest disaster in Charan’s career. Controversies hit this film as the original writers of Zanjeer (1973) Salim – Javed were not consulted for remaking it.

    Ram Charan joined hands with Mr. Perfectionist filmmaker Dil Raju for Yevadu. Ever since the start of this film, it faced hurdles all over. This film got delayed by almost a year and is still trying its best to hit screens. The state’s political turmoil has hit Yevadu very hard and so the release of the movie was delayed for a long time. Finally it released for Sankranthi and went on to become a big commercial hit.

    In 2014, Ram Charan has tried for an Image Makeover and attempted a family entertainer like Govindhudu Andari Vaadele in the direction of Krishna Vamshi. The film was an average grosser at the box office but at the same time surprised trade experts by becoming one more 40 Crore plus share film to Ram Charan.
