Telugu Cinema has hoisted the flag of pride with RRR and Karthikeya2 this year and at the same time gave a shock with disappointment like Radhe Shyam and a disaster like Liger.
Let us see what all the top stars have done this year. Indeed, some top stars like Allu Arjun have no films this year.
Let us see who all did their work and what they achieved.
Nagarjuna Akkineni: The year started with Bangarraju of Nagarjuna for Sankranthi as that was the only movie which dared to hit the screens amidst some Covid norms. All the big films like Radhe Shyam.
