Few people have achieved success in the film industry without overcoming obstacles. It is difficult to stay in the industry without a solid foundation. Many telugu actors, although having a a cinema background, are unable to succeed in their profession. Such a person must grow up to be a hero on his own, which implies that luck plays a role at times. Few, though, are in a good position now as a result of their hard work and self-confidence.
As we all know, Movie opportunities are extremely competitive in the Telugu film industry, and numerous current generation actors have played in minor roles before making their main debut. We gathered a list of 10 Actors Who Had Unrecognized Roles Before Becoming Popular hero in this Article.
Ravi Teja, who started his film career with a small character role in Vijayashanthi’s Kartavyam movie, took almost 10 years to act as a hero. In these 10 years, Ravi Teja worked not only as a character artist but also as an assistant director for some films. Ravi Teja’s career changed with the movie Sindhooram in 1997, and in 1999, he became known to the Telugu audience as a hero with the movie Neekosam.
Vijay Devarakonda, who became a sensation from Arjun Reddy, also achieved this stardom after many struggles. The first film of this hero was the movie Nuvvila directed by Ravi Babu, in this movie Vijay appeared in the role of Vishnu, who plays for the Indian cricket team, but the screen space for that role is very small. Later in 2012, Ajay appeared in another small role in the movie Life Is Beautiful, but he got better recognition as an actor only with the role of Rishi in Yevade Subramanyam. We know his journey from the 2016 film Pelli Choopulu.
Nikhil Siddharth reminds us of the character Rajesh from the film Happy Days, and we assume this is his first film. However, even though Nikhil was a character artist four years prior to this film, he worked as a background artist in Nithin’s Sambaram. Later, he worked as an assistant director and played a minor role in the film Hyderabad Nawabs. Despite his success in Happy Days, he had some ups and downs before establishing himself as a hero with the film Swami Rara. With the recent release of Karthikeya 2, he became a pan-India star.
Even though he has earned a unique identity as a hero, Adavi Sesh faced challenges when starting up his career. In 2002, he played the small role of Venkat in Sontham movie. He took a long break and surprised as a hero and director with the film Karma in 2010, but that film did not do well. In 2011, he gained recognition as the character Munna in the film Panja. Adavi Shesh’s graph shifted with the release of Kshanam, and he created a fresh genre for himself.
Sunil has a unique status in comedy; no one can match him for comedy timing or punchlines. Sunil appeared in the film Akkada Ammayi Ikkada Abbayi as a background artist. Sunil’s struggles continued for a few years after acting in some films because they were not released. Sunil’s trajectory changed after that when he was given roles in Trivikram Srinivas films.
Satya Dev, who began his acting career in short films, played Prabhas’ friend role in Mr. Perfect. Since then, he has taken on supporting roles, appeared in minor roles, and is now showcasing his talent as a hero. He played a powerful villain in the recently released film Godfather.
Santosh Shobhan, who became well-known with the movie Paper Boy, first appeared in Golconda High School as Gautham, the captain of the cricket team. He made his debut as a hero with Thanu Nenu and continues to make good films.
