Unlike the other cinema circuits, there is a specialty about the Telugu industry. As much as the star heroes are popular and have strong following, there is an equal amount of craze for comedians too. Due to that, the directors have been etching out scripts which have the hero travelling with a star comedian in the movie.
The likes of Hasya Chakravarthy Brahmanandam, Vennela Kishore and others are classic examples to that. However, it was also noticed that some of the comedians went out of their domain and tried to become heroes. Till date, except Nata Kireeti Rajendra Prasad, none of them have been successful.
Despite that, the attempts didn’t stop. The latest example to that is Sunil who stuck to hero roles despite scoring repeated flops. Now, another comedian seems to be doing the same mistake. He is none other than Shakalaka Shankar. Leaving aside his strongest asset like humour, Shankar is signing films as a hero. Many feel this is a mistake but only time will reveal about it.
