It is an honor for any actor to don the military get up and fight the anti-national forces on the big screen. The fans also love to see their idol fighting for the country, which creates any goosebumps moments for them. But in Tollywood, most of the movies where the lead actor has played an army officer, have failed miserably.
In the past, Megastar Chiranjeevi tried playing an Army officer in movies like Yuddha Bhoomi and Stalin, and unfortunately, both the movies turned out to be flops. Balakrishna also delivered an utter flop film Vijayendra Varma where he played an army major. Nagarjuna also tried his hand at playing a Military officer in films like Gaganam and LOC Kargil, which bombed badly. Recently Allu Arjun delivered a resounding flop as Army Officer in ‘Naa Peru Surya.’
Now Mahesh Babu is attempting the role of a military officer in the upcoming mass entertainer Sarileru Neekevvaru. Naga Chaitanya is also trying his luck as a military officer in the multistarrer Venky mama.
It will be exciting to see if Mahesh and Chai can emerge victorious by breaking this jinx.
