Many mainstream Tollywood movies have the same repetitive set of actors playing the same kind of role. They are chained to only those character sets. We present to you ten such artists who have been stereotyped to their roles.
Ram plays the role of a boy next door who is in search of true love. When he does find the love of his life his hindrances begin. Thus a period of fighting starts until he gets the family’s approval of his love. The movie’s like ‘
’, ‘Devadasu’, ‘Maska’ and ‘Kandireega’ seem to prove the point.
Zareena who goes by her stage name Nadhiya is predominantly a Tamil, Malayalam actor. The few movies she worked in Telugu render her as a bold mother/relative of the protagonist, a warrior-like woman who enjoys and values customs and traditions.
3. Samantha Ruth Prabhu:
The cutest actress of T-Town has always been playing the same bubbly, fun to play around with character. She needs a new set of qualities to this beauty; let her be a bold or an intelligent person for once.
The tall, skinny actor who is well known for his funny bone, is always the same funny bone. No matter what profession he takes up in the movie, his acting and personality set remains the same. His sarcasm sometimes fail the scene and sometimes to point.
Prakash Raj is a polyglot artist who is known nationwide for his skills, won numerous awards for his acting. In Telugu industry, he has done iconic roles mostly which include being a father to the hero, heroine or the main antagonist. We expect more diverse roles for a man of such talent.
Brahmanandam Kanneganti who has been honoured with Padma Shri for his contribution to Telugu cinema is now a comedian who has become a comedian with less appreciation. The role he plays these days involve comedy related to slapping. A joke said once is funny, repetition of the same starts losing sense.
The long legged beauty always plays the damsel in distress; with screen time for actresses diminishing we expect to see her put a new skin of character on her instead of always being a victim.
The reputed man with an immense fan following is always portrayed as a man of well-versed morals and is a man born for a social cause. Let’s hope he dons a new flavour in his upcoming movies.
Actor turned politician Pawan Kalyan carries an unbeatable swag and attitude, though that’s all that we can see these days. The fuel to “pawanism” is his power packed dialogue delivery and his unconventional way to serve society for a greater good.

The tiger of the Nandamuri family after his debut in movies varied his roles initially. Now after his body transformation, it seems like his character is fixed to powerful or intelligent men with limitless powers which are exercised as and when he wishes with no regards to his profession on screen.
