birthday Special! Kick ass video songs of Pawan Kalyan during his early years
Admit it or not! Pawan Kalyan is one among the few Indian Superstars who command a mind-boggling following among the masses. Earning a demigod status, maintaining his trademark swag and having a slew of followers who follow ‘Pawanism’ is no mean feat. In a roller-coaster career spanning for over two decades, the Power star of Telugu cinema played the protagonist in less than 25 films and managed to don multiple hats of a director, producer, stunt coordinator, playback singer, choreographer and story/screenplay writer. After limiting himself to a supporting role in the 2014 general elections, the founder of Janasena The political team has finally ventured into active politics with the recently concluded elections.
Stepping foot into the film industry as the younger brother of Mega Star Chiranjeevi, Pawan Kalyan didn’t take much time to establish his own credibility as a lead actor. Utilizing his unique mannerisms, energetic movements and funky dance moves to the maximum, the 48-year-old actor became a force to reckon with after his initial films emerged victorious at the ticket counters. With seven superhits on the trot, the Konidela scion turned into a reigning superstar in the Telugu stars with incredible craze among the masses.
After the monstrous success of SJ Suryah’s Kushi in 2001, the market value of Pawan reached sky-high with producers queuing to make him sign the dotted line. During this crucial juncture, the trained martial artist surprised everyone by opting for a two-year break and worked on his own script. Though his maiden directorial Johnny failed to work on the commercial front, the romantic-drama was critically acclaimed for its dark screenplay and realistic action sequences.
Popularly known by his sobriquet ‘ Power star ’, Pawan Kalyan is famous for churning out blockbuster films like Tholi Prema Thammadu Badri Kushi Gabbar Singh and Attarintiki Daredi. Recently, the actor-turned-politician was clicked with his third wife Anna Lezhneva at Hyderabad airport. Along with their son Mark Shankar Pawanovich, the Russian lady attended the Annaprasana ritual of Chiranjeevi’s granddaughter.
The active philanthropist, humble personality and socially conscious individual, is celebrating his 48th birthday on September 2. Though he refrains from indulging in any kind of celebrations on his birthday, the massive fan-following which speaks volumes about his stardom does enjoy on his behalf. On this special day, check out some of PK’s video songs which showcased the vintage Power star of the masses.
