It was Pongal 2001; Natasimham Nandamuri Balakrishna's Narasimha Naidu was released without any expectations and created tremors at the box office. It became industry hit. The movie ran 100 days in 98 direct centers and collected a whopping share of 22 crores then.
It was the same year i.e. 2001 summer. Power star Pawan Kalyan's Kushi released with huge expectations and box office records were broken and the movie collected a share of Rs.24 crores by setting 64 town records for highest share collection.
This is 2010, summer season; Balakrishna's 'Simha' proved super hit of the year and gave smiles to Balakrishna after a long gap of 6 years. Pawan Kalyan's 'Komaram Puli' shoot is right now, almost in completion stage. It is expected to release in the month of June. As per the sentiment when Balakrishna gives big hit, Pawan also gives a big hit. Earlier, in 1999 too, when Balakrishna gave industry hit in the form of Samarasimha Reddy, Pawan later came up with a cool hit 'Thammudu'. This sentiment is emerging from the fan circles of Pawan Kalyan across the state. Hope, their dreams go fruitful.
