Happy Birthday, Chiranjeevi!

Posted on: August 22, 2009

Chiranjeevi, one of the biggest stars ever to have graced Tollywood, turns 54 on August 22.

The megastar, who was having quite a bad year (his ambitious political outing took a beating at the Lok Sabha polls), is smiling again: ‘Magadheera’, starring his son Ram Charan Teja, is breaking all collection records!

Chiranjeevi aka Konidela Shiva Shankara Vara Prasad, was born at Narsapuram in Andhra Pradesh, to Konidela Venkat Rao and Anjana Devi. Chiru debuted in films with a cameo in ‘Punadi Rallu’ (1978); but his first release was ‘Pranam Kharidu’ (1978). Later , Chiranjeevi had to don several negative roles before he was accepted as hero material.
It was the superhit ‘Khaidi’ (1983) that made him a superstar. A slew of blockbusters followed, including ‘Abhilasha’ (1983), ‘Challenge’ (1984), ‘Pasivadi Pranam’ (1987), ‘Athaku Yamudu Ammayiki Mogudu’ (1989), J’agadeka Veerudu Athiloka Sundari’ (1990), ‘Kodama Simham’ (1990), ‘Gang Leader’ (1991), ‘Rowdy Alludu’ (1991) and ‘Gharana Mogudu’ (1992).
During the mid 1990s, Chiranjeevi suffered a few reverses. But, he made a telling comeback in the late 1990s with a series of mega hit–‘Master’ (1997), ‘Choodalani Vundi’ (1998), ‘Bavagaru Bagunnara’ (1998), ‘Indra’ (2001), ‘Tagore’ (2003), ‘Shankardada MBBS’ (2004), ‘Jai Chiranjeeva’ (2005), and ‘Stalin’ (2006). His last release in a full length role was ‘Shankar Dada Zindabad’.

Here is wishing the megastar a Happy B’day!
