Tollywood star Mahesh Babu won the Dadasaheb Phalke Award (South) for 'Best Actor' for Bharat Ane Nenu, and this gave his fans a reason to rejoice. Prince's big win, however, upset Ram Charan loyalists, who claimed that the 'Mega Power Star deserved to bag the honour for stealing the show with his performance in director Sukumar's critically acclaimed Rangasthalam, one of the biggest hits of 2018. Take a look at a few comments below.

#DadaSahebPhalkeAwardssouth2019 Mahesh Babu Won??? MB did well in BAN but I honestly felt like Ram Charan should've got best hero for Rangasthalam. Does anyone agree?

Without doubt Ram Charan deserved for best actor of the year, Telugu (Rangasthalam).
Coming back to Mahesh Babu, he is working on the much-hyped Sarileru Neekevvaru, slated to hit screens on January 11, 2020. The film, featuring 'Super Star' in the role of an Army officer, has created a fair deal of buzz amongst fans, which is a positive sign. Thereafter, he might team up with KGF director Prashanth Neel for a pan-India movie.
On the other hand, Ram Charan is gearing up for the release of Sye Raa, his second production venture. The film, featuring Chiranjeevi in the titular role, will hit screens in five languages (Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada and Hindi) on October 2. On the acting front, 'Mr C' is working on SS Rajamouli's RRR, which features Jr NTR as the parallel lead. The magnum opus is expected to release in 2020.
