Chiranjeevi, who is fondly called Chiru, was born to Konidela Venkat Rao and Anjana Devi in Mogultoor on August 22 in 1955. He debuted in films with Punadhirallu in 1978 and so far he has acted in 149 movies. He was last seen in a cameo role in his son Ram Charan Teja's Blockbuster flick Magadheera, but his last full-pledged movie was Shankar Dada MBBS in 2004.
It was rumoured in 2011 that Chiranjeevi wanted to return to acting and Adhinayakudu was to be his 150th movie. But later the actor reportedly gave away this title to his rival Balakrishna. At present, there is no news about his next movie. His fans are desperately waiting for him to comeback to big screen with his 150th film.
Chiranjeevi has been honoured with several Nandi and Filmfare awards for his wonderful acting. More than that he has gained millions of fans not only in Andhra Pradesh, but also in other states of South and North India. At one point of time his popularity was soared up to sky high and he was listed among the top 50 influential men in India.
However, it was recently reported that Chiranjeevi's brother Pawan Kalyan and other family members wanted to an extra zing to his 57th birthday. They have reportedly planned to have grand birthday party at the Annapurna Studios. As a part of celebrations, Pawan Kalyan would release the first teaser of Cameraman Ganga Tho Rambabu and this would be a birthday gift to the Megastar of Tollywood.
We, at Oneindia, wish good health and all the success to Megastar Chiranjeevi.
