    Entire AP and TG people knows who have huge fan following. Prabhas and Mahesh has decent following in AP and TG. But Pawan and NTR has huge fan following when compared to other Telugu heros. Among these two Pawan has too much of craze. Finally I would like to conclude saying that no other Telugu hero can beat Pawan craze in telugu states.
