Since many decades, the hero of the Telugu Film industry has projected an image of machismo, masala, romance and sentiment. In a way, the focus on heroics was more than offering authentic content. However, times have changed and some heroes coming from established families have been gutsy enough to venture into something different.
One hero who must be hailed for that is mega prince Varun Tej. Right from the start of his career, Varun has been working on movies which offer different content. ‘Mukunda’ was a family entertainer, ‘Kanche’ was patriotic, ‘Loafer’ was complete masala, ‘Fidaa’ was an authentic love story.
That way, he has been making some intelligent moves in his career by opting for variety storylines. In the process, Varun was also being selective when it comes to working with various directors. That way, he is setting a good example of content driven subjects and is becoming a role model for the younger heroes.
