Flashback Friday! When Mahesh Babu, Pawan Kalyan and NTR emulated their family superstars in songs

1. Mahesh Babu, Pawan Kalyan, NTR and Naga Chaitanya emulate their family superstars in songs

Admit it or not! The Telugu film industry is mostly dominated by the second and third-generation heroes from reputed families who have stamped their authority in multiple verticals of the showbiz business. From Nandamuri Taraka Ramarao (NTR) and Akkineni Nageswara Rao (ANR) during the 60s and 70s to Krishna, Krishnam Raju and Chiranjeevi, several protagonists have carved a niche for themselves in the Telugu states and their acting legacy is being continued by their sons, grandsons and relatives as well.
Once in a while, to entertain their massive fan base and deliver a special attraction to the film, the current bunch of leading men emulate their family superstars be it father, grandfather or uncle in songs. Whether the number is original or a remix version, these actors imitate the popular dance moves of their legendary inspirations and deliver a visual feast for the masses.

While Tarak emulated his grandfather’s dance moves in ‘Rendu Vela Rendu Varaku’ song, Pawan Kalyan repeated Chiranjeevi’s popular ‘Veena’ step in ‘Sardar Gabbar Singh’ and Mahesh Babu bore a striking resemblance to his father, Krishna Ghattamaneni, in Maharshi. As its flashback Friday, let’s go nostalgic and remind all those captivating moments.

During a hilarious dance sequence in Sardaar Gabbar Singh, the sequel to the 2012 blockbuster Gabbar Singh, Pawan Kalyan imitated his brother Chiranjeevi’s popular Veena step from Indra. With his own style and crazy antics, the Power Star of Telugu cinema sent his fans into a frenzy with some super cool moves. Despite busy with political commitments, he is making an acting comeback by reprising Amitabh Bachchan’s role in the Telugu remake of Pink titled Vakeel Saab. While the courtroom drama is still on floors, the 48-year-old actor has surprised everyone by joining hands with versatile director Krish Jagarlamudi for a mega-budget project. Tentatively titled as Virupaksha, the film is tipped to be a period drama set in the pre-independence era.

For a brief part in Choti Choti Baatein song from Maharshi, Mahesh Babu slipped into the vintage 70s avatar of his superstar father and emulated some of his popular moves with ease. Recently, Krishna Ghattamaneni’s debut film ‘Tene Manasulu’ completed 55 years of release and taking the occasion into account, Mahesh Babu went nostalgic and remembered about the film. Terming it as his all-time favourite, the Sarileru Neekevvaru actor took to Instagram and wrote “My all time favourite #timelessclassic #TeneManasulu #Repost • @mbofficialteam Our Evergreen SuperStar Krishna garu's journey begun on this day 55 years back with TENE MANASULU. What a Blockbuster beginning. Let's take a moment to go back to the legendary journey of our SUPERSTAR.

4. Junior NTR imitates his legendary grandfather NTR in ‘Rendu Vela Rendu Varaku’

‘Allari Ramudu’ is Junior NTR’s fifth film as a protagonist and the talented actor nailed in all aspects like emoting skills, fights and dances. Helmed by B Gopal, the 2002 action-comedy featured a remix song lifted from Senior NTR’s 1979 film Vetagadu. Besides fine-tuning the lyrics and the beat, music director RP Patnaik did a commendable job in restoring the soul and magic of the peppy number. Both Tarak and Arthi Aggarwal have recreated the magic of Senior NTR and Sridevi by shaking their legs perfectly and displaying some crackling chemistry.

5. Naga Chaitanya slipped into ANR avatar for a brief presence in ‘100% Love’

In his third film ‘100% Love’, Naga Chaitanya imitated his grandfather ANR for a very short duration. Slipping into the 80s avatar, the ‘Majili’ actor shook his leg to the famous Naa Kallu Chebuthunnayi song from the 1981 blockbuster Premabhishekam.
