Like These Directors, Will Koratala Siva Manage To Revive His Career With Jr NTR Film?

With the astronomical success of RRR, Jr NTR has established himself as one of the most celebrated all-India actors of recent times. After winning the hearts of the audience with his exemplary portrayal of Komaram Bheem in the SS Rajamouli directorial, the actor has teamed up with filmmaker Koratala Siva for his next film NTR 30. Koratala last turned director for the action drama Acharya, which released earlier this year.

Despite starring superstar father-son duo Chiranjeevi and Ram Charan in lead roles, Acharya failed to impress the masses. Now, a lot hinges on NTR 30 for both Koratala Siva and Jr NTR. As the much-hyped film about Jr NTR’s first big screen venture after RRR, the audience has high expectations.

On the other hand, after the Acharya debacle, Tollywood fans have pinned high hopes on NTR 30 to mark the revival of Koratala Siva’s directorial career. But, will the filmmaker be able to make a comeback with a bang?

Well, this is not the first time that Jr NTR has agreed to work with a director whose last film bombed at the box office. He has proved to be a lucky charm for many directors in the past. Some of these directors include Trivikram Srinivas, Puri Jagannath and Sukumar.

Back in 2018, Trivikram Srinivas suffered a major setback in his career when Agnithavaasi failed to do well at the box office. After Agyeyathavaasi, he teamed up with Jr. NTR for the action drama film Aravinda opposite Veera Raghava. The film became the second highest grossing film of that year.

Similarly, after navigating a few flops, Puri Jagannath worked with Jr NTR for the 2015 film Temple. The action film did impressive business at the box office.

Sukumar, who had stormed the big screen with Allu Arjun-starrer Pushpa: The Rise, faced failure with the 2014 film 1: Nenokkadine, starring Mahesh Babu. After the film flopped at the ticket booth, she joined hands with Jr. NTR for the 2016 film Nannaku Prematho. Apart from being a blockbuster hit, the action thriller also won several prestigious awards, including the Filmfare Award for Best Actor – Telugu, the Filmfare Award for Best Music Director – Telugu, and the Nandi Award for Best Editor.
