Becoming a star hero in the local industry is one achievement in itself but it takes some real charisma and power to become a star at a zonal level. The south cinema has four industries and each industry has its own flavor of audience. Hence, finding acceptance among all of them is not that easy. Yet, two men were able to achieve that.
They are Style Samrat Rajnikanth and Universal star Kamal Haasan. There was a time when Rajini and Kamal used to cover the entire south. They had fan bases all across the south and eventually they started making their presence felt even in the north. Even today, both Rajini and Kamal have a fair share of following.
Now, it appears both Rajini and Kamal have found their successors. This is in the form of the radical stud Vijay Deverakonda and the sophisticated stud Dulquer Salmaan. The duo is creating the same magic across the four industries and the seniors are opining that Rajini and Kamal can relax peacefully because their replacements have come.
