You would now laugh if we say form is temporary and class is permanent because you have heard it and read it million times since childhood. But certain things are true no matter what and we need to stress it because a dose of goodness is never bad after all. It is the same in film field too. There are quite a handful of Telugu movie celebs who are written off at one point of time or the other but came back strongly.
As recently as last year, i.e. 2019, Dashing director Puri Jagannadh was in the same situation. He has seen a streak of flops and had to sell off his properties to bring one of his films to theatres. But come iSmart Shankar, he not just bounced back, everyone almost forgot his recent failures and have high hopes on his pan-India film with Vijay Deverakonda and Ananya Panday. (Mani Sharma says hi)
If we go a little back into the times when Chiranjeevi, Nagarjuna, Balakrishna, and Venkatesh were ruling the industry, i.e. in the 1990s, Chiranjeevi faced a big slump before he got back on track with Hitler. Nagarjuna too experienced a same situation after Annamayya but bounced back with Nuvvu Vasthavani.
Shruti Haasan who was termed an iron leg needed just one film Gabbar Singh to turn into the first choice for star heroes. And Gabbar Singh means... Power Star Pawan Kalyan's epic comeback.
Here are 11 such instances where all they need was a single film to bounce back for these Tollywood actors and major technicians.
