  • Ram Charan

These are the top actors who have strongly influenced the whole Telugu Box Office. Their movies turn blockbuster and their fan following keeps on increasing. Some of the popular Telugu hit movies of these actors include Baahubali, Magadheera, Rangasthalam, Spyder and many more.

Success at Worldwide Box Office

Even though a movie becomes flop at the Indian box office, yet it performs exceptionally well at worldwide box office sometimes. How does that happen? A movie’s success at international level is not dependent upon its Indian performance. A movie enters into the list of Highest grossing Telugu movies solely based on its marketing.

Let’s take an example of Baahubali 2. This movie became the biggest Telugu grosser in India and world. The sole reason of this was the ending of 1st part and a curious question “Why Katappa killed Bahubali?”. The marketing gimmick involved a lot of people and hence the movie was watched by a very wide audience. All this made Baahubali 2 Telugu’s Blockbuster movie till date. Not just that, there are many other Telugu super hit movies that depend on marketing gimmicks to have an amazing Tollywood box office collection.
