The latest trend is that big names from Bollywood want to act in Telugu movies now. Names like Rajamouli and Shankar have changed things upside down and as they make films which have a pan India appeal. For this, they are roping in actors from Hindi to give their film a larger appeal.
So, the thought process for actors in Bollywood has changed as many actors want to be a part of projects in Telugu and Tamil now. The latest example was when Janhvi Kapoor said in an interview that she wanted to act with Vijay Devarakonda. This clearly shows the craze the actors in Mumbai have on Telugu cinema now.
Some of them who are actively changing the trend is Amitabh Bachchan, Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn, Vivek Oberoi, Jackie Shroff, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Nana Patekar, Vidya Balan, Suniel Shetty, who are big names and have done a film each here in the south. Big B is acting as Chiranjeevi's guru in Sye Raa, Vivek Oberoi is playing main villain in Ram Charan's upcoming movie Vinaya Vidheya Rama and Vidya Balan is the leading lady in NTR Biopic.
Neil Nithin Mukesh recently appeared as villain in Kavacham and he will also be seen in a crucial role in Prabhas' Saaho. Akshay Kumar and Nana Patekar were seen in Rajinikanth's recent movies.
This clearly shows the manner in which the crossover is happening. So, Indian films are no more Bollywood centric these days; Tollywood is leading the cine industry and showing the world what they are made up of.
