2022 is unfinished without discussing Rajamouli's ‘Masterpiece’ ‘RRR.’ NTR and Ram Charan’s performances have elevated to international fame.

On the other side, NTR's spectacular portrayal of a tribal rebel have deceived the audience. He captures the fury of a tribal guy who fiercely battles for the self-respect and representation of his community.

People have been moved to tears by this man's passion in heartbreaking scenes like the song "Komuram Bheemudo."

Adi is one kind of actor who is always chasing the challenging characters. He appeared as a lover boy in ‘Good Luck Sakhi’ and as a ruthless antagonist in Ram's 'The Warriorr.’
