The early set of star heroes will be the definite inspiration for the present generation of actors. For the era of Chiranjeevi and Nagarjuna, NTR and ANR were the inspiration. For all the current generation actors, Chiru, Nagarjuna, Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan are the inspirations. Mass Raja Ravi Teja pointed out the same thing in a recent interview.
Recently, Ravi Teja was at a promotional interview for his upcoming film Disco Raja. Speaking in that interview, he said that Chiranjeevi, Rajinikanth, and Amitabh Bachchan will appear in every actor's performance, in this generation. He added that it is not an imitation but is an inspiration. Such is the influence created by them on the current bunch of actors. Ravi Teja is a big fan of Amitabh Bachchan and he often pays tribute to the legendary actor in many of his films. Ravi also admires Chiranjeevi a lot and also acted alongside Megastar in the film Annayya.
Disco Raja's antagonist Bobby Simha, director VI Anand, and heroine Tanya Hope were also present at this interview. Payal Rajput and Nabha Natesh played the other female lead roles in this movie. Disco Raja will hit the screens worldwide on the 24th of this month.
