Tollywood is predominantly ruled by heroes. The masses love to see their heroes trash the villains and save the day. This perception has been slowly changing because of the evolving stories and the writing in recent times. A hero is only as powerful as his villain and the more powerful the villain is, so is the hero who triumphs over him. Top stars have been selecting scripts which are character driven and dont mind playing characters which have grey, dark or negative shades. From Gopichand’s powerful portrayal as Bhadranna in Varsham (2004) to Nani’s cool and calm portrayal of a cold blooded murderer Vikramaditya in V (2020,) we at Telugu Filmnagar listed some of our favourite villain roles essayed by heroes.
