Who according to you is the number 1 in the Tollywood circuit? This is a million dollar question because the competition is high and it is hard to point one hero. The hot contenders for the number one seat are power star Pawan Kalyan and superstar Mahesh Babu. So, who among the two is eligible for it?
The trade gurus say it would be decided by success. As long as they score a hit they will get to keep the number 1 spot. For instance, till Gabbar Singh Pawan was on second place and Mahesh was riding high with the success of Dookudu. But after that Pawan got into number 1 slot.
He sustained it with back to back hits in the form of Attarintiki Daredi and Gopala Gopala whereas Mahesh suffered two back to back flops with 1-Nenokkadine and Aagadu and slipped into second place. That way, it revolves around success in terms of the number 1 position but in terms of following and craze both the two heroes are equal. This is quite similar to their predecessors NTR-ANR, Chiru-Balayya.
