There was a time when you had to struggle for several years and unless you scored consistent hits, you would not earn the celebrity status. Today, thanks to the strong impact of the social media and the awareness of the common public, anybody can become a sensation overnight and eventually a celebrity. How long that will last is a different story.
For instance, the Malayalam actress Priya Prakash Varrier was a nobody few months ago but all she had to do was wink at a boy which made her a hot property. Having said that, there are also times when few individuals deserve instant fame. One such person is Penchal Das. He happens to be a Rayalaseema based folk writer and singer.
Today, the Filmnagar circles are talking about him and the reason for that is, Penchal Das has been roped in as the official tutor for young tiger Jr NTR for the movie ‘Aravinda Sametha…Veera Raghava’. Now that Penchal has been given a golden opportunity, it remains to be seen how he is going to sustain it and for how long.
