The proximity between Tollywood and Kollywood is such that the familiarity of the heroes among both the audiences is quite prevalent. Of course, the big stars have a longer impact and impression in the other industry crowds. In the case of Tollywood heroes, their presence in Kollywood is actually limited.
So, when they arrive with their movies in Tamil, skepticism prevails as to how the Tamil Thambis would receive them. This was the case when ‘King’ Akkineni Nagarjuna went with his movie Thozha to Tamil. It is not that they don’t know Nag but he did his dubbing in Tamil for the first time.
So, the filmnagar circles and Akkineni fans were apprehensive on how this would go. Well, reports from Chennai have brought in some good news. Those who saw the film were impressed with Nag’s dubbing and they said that he spoke like an authentic Tamilian. Congrats to Nag and the film for the good response.
