His roles in his next films Dhada, Bejawada Rowdilu and Autonagar Surya are completely mass oriented ones. Naga Chaitanyaís directors are in strategies in presenting him as a mass hero.

Pawan Kalyan has failed to taste the success with the romantic comedy entertainer Teenmaar. Made with a high budget, the Love Aaj Kal remake ended up as a loss venture to the producer. Critics claimed that the film has nothing to offer for the masses and was strictly restricted to A centers. To answer these, Power Star has accepted an out and out mass entertainer, which is the remake of† Salman Khanís Dabangg. Titled as Gabbar Singh, director Harish Shankar says that Gabbar Singh would be a treat to Pawan Kalyanís fans.
Stylish Star Allu Arjun has also come up with an action packed epic drama Badrinath that is packed with loads of mass elements. Though Allu Arjun has tried out varied roles in Vedam and Arya 2, the movies failed to succeed commercially despite his good action skills. So, the actor has now tried to play safe with Badrinath and infact, Badrinath was the biggest openers of 2011 and is making steady collections regardless of the negative buzz on the release day.
While the aforementioned heroes are switching between the class and mass entertainers, here comes the Mass Maharaj Ravi Teja, who is the hero of masses as far as his market is concerned. He does completely mass entertainers and entertains his target audience with his mass histrionics and style. Apart from these stars, the Super Star Mahesh Babu, Yuvaratna Bala Krishna, Aggressive Star Gopichand also enjoys the huge mass following.
However, the star heroes need to think, not all the mass entertainers end up as hits. It is noteworthy that the film-makers are targeting sections of B & C centers in the form of mass entertainers, but the makers need to come out with the genuine subjects and content despite adding unwanted sick comedy and sensational fights to enthrall their fans with unnecessary heroic elements.
Well, watch out the mass entertainers of the season that are gearing up to reach the big-screens to entertain you all the wayÖ
