Do you have a valid answer to questions of the above kind?

Some questions have no definitive answers and some answers have no definitive questions. Some hypotheses have no proper explanation and vice versa. This is a universal hypothesis again! [Ok…this is no philosophy lecture] When we tried relating this to our Tollywood…we found a case study…That is Rana Daggubati!!

From being a successful producer’s son to being a successful film personality himself, he is everything- a producer, a Visual Effects producer, an actor and what not!

And here, let us remind you that ‘Fame’ is generally directly proportional to ‘Success’! When our Ctrl Z writers were rightly scanning him, he’s racing away defying all the proportionality equations! If you tell us he has been fed with a silver spoon called ‘Success’ right from the farex level, we mention names like Nenu Naa Rakshasi (2011), Naa Ishtam (2012), Department (2012) [which turned out to be disastrous bombs]. He also has average grossers like Leader [his debut film], Dum Maaro Dum (2011) [his debut Hindi film], Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum (2012) to his current account. Pumping gas apart, on a frank note, he hasn’t tasted a solid hit yet [YES in Tollywood and Definitely YES in Bollywood]!

But did you check this space? Reading between the lines gives you an inference that his fame increased by folds with every film he did. Be it Leader [an average grosser] which gifted him a Filmfare Award for Best Debut – South, Dum Maaro Dum that showcased him as the Most Promising Newcomer of 2011, according to Times of India [Thanks to Bipasha Basu for contributing to his fame]. After the bombing of Department, Rana seems to be focusing both his two eyes on Tollywood alone and still he gets a call from Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions [an ace production house in Bollywood] for a cameo in their recent romantic sensation Yeh Jawaani Hai Dewani.

Ok...let’s rule this down as his outstanding PR in Bollywood. But, recently he has been voted as the 10th Most Desirable Man in the Times 50 Most Desirable Men of India and most recently the popular Online Magazine 'WOW' has picked him up for its iconic cover page along with two other hotties [Of course, we know he makes a good model by default!] Now, professionally he is riding high with big picks like Rudramadevi, Baahubali and Valai [opposite Tamil Superstar Ajith].

Looks like all the 'woods 'of Indian cinema are smitten alike by our Daggubati hunk! And now sky is the limit for this T’town starlet! Nod to that!!!
