Actors achieve the tag of a legend mostly at a posthumous level but there are those extraordinary men who attain glory while they live. One such person is Amitabh Bachchan and he is called the living legend. For many decades, Amitabh has become a role model and till date, many actors imitate him and his style.

In Tollywood, two names are being put in the category of ‘Andhra Amitabh’ and a debate is on as to who is the apt one. They are Nagarjuna and Ravi Teja. Apparently, Nagarjuna is doing the game show ‘Meelo Evaru Koteeswarudu’, the Telugu version of Amitabh’s ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’.

Ravi Teja was called Andhra Amitabh for his imitation of steps and some of his roles wherein he is a self-confessed fan of Big B. Well, the debates have come to a conclusion and the result is out. It is declared that in the big screen circuit Ravi Teja is Andhra Amitabh and in small screen circuit Andhra Amitabh is Nagarjuna. It is not a comparison with the living legend but both Nag and Ravi Teja have gained an image and reputation that connects to Amitabh in many ways.
