Seems like newfound stardom is working out with many youths voting for “Arjun Reddy” of Tollywood in a big way. In the annual Most Desirable Hyderabad Man contest that will be conducted by a leading English daily, now this guy has beaten the who is who of Telugu Film Industry.
For 2018, Hyderabad guy Baseer Ali who happens to be a contestant of MTV Roadies and Splitsvilla has emerged as the Most Desirable Man. He’s followed by Vijay Devarkonda at the No.2 position giving a shock to many Tollywood heroes. We have Baahubali Prabhas at No.3 slot, followed by Mahesh Babu and Ram Charan at 4th and 5th positions.
Despite being a newcomer in the industry, beating Prabhas who has pan-Indian appeal is a big thing for Vijay. Also topping up Mahesh Babu whose charisma is unlimited and has no looking back as a brand ambassador is crazy. At the same time, despite having a terrific mega fanbase, Ram Charan ended up only at a 5th place giving way to his junior and seniors.
But the only thing lacking in Vijay for the now is a proven market potential because all the other Telugu heroes in the Top 5 are capable of spinning 50 crores with ease at the box office while this youngster is still in 20 crore range only.
The Top 10 list includes Baseer Ali, Vijay Devarkonda, Prabhas, Mahesh, Charan, Allu Arjun, Rana, Rohit Khandelwal, NTR and Nani.
