Second League stars: Nani leads the pack comfortably
After the success of Geetha Govindam, the equation among the second league actors got changed a bit. The second league actors who are in good form include Nani, Vijay Deverkonda, Naga Chaitanya, Varun Tej, Ram and Sharwanand.
Nani’s top position was quite doubtful because he was struggling to give a proper hit after MCA (Middle Class Abbayi). However, he comfortably leads the pack after Jersey came out.
Vijay Deverakonda’s position is quite wobbly as his last couple of films have not been up to the mark. If his next film fails, then his position will drop down from the top position. His next film id with Kranti Madhav and a teaser would help us determine his position.
Ram and Naga Chaitanya have been quite inconsistent with their career. At present, their position stands good after the success of iSmart Shankar and Majili and are also top contenders for the Top stop. Varun Tej is also impressive with a different choice of films he last multi starrer movie F2 is smash blockbuster. However he is looking for solo blockbuster after Fida, He is pinning huge hopes on Valmiki which is directed by Harish Shankar.
We need to see if they will follow it up with successes. Sharwanand is trying to redeem his career with Ranarangam. Let’s see if the second league actors stick to their positions with their upcoming films. All and said done with Vijay Deverkonda trailing after Dear Comrade, Nani is quite comfortably leading in Tier-2 Heros.
