This is too stupid. Chiranjeevi is a legendary actor. He is all time best actor, not only in the Telugu industry. He is MEGASTAR remember that.

He is a true actor who always makes experiments all time with different roles in different categories. The truly great actors should taste all flavors of acting. That is only one from Tollywood that is NAG… The actors should deserve that credit in all categories rather than sticking to one or two categories like Nagarjuna Akkineni.
