Continuing its dream run at the US box office, ‘Arjun Reddy’ has now officially overtaken Balakrishna Nandamuri’s “Gautamiputra Satakarni” to emerge the 4th highest grosser of 2017 and stands at All Time 10th position in the US. Overall Gross as of now is $1,666,000, according to the film’s US distributor.

Vijaya Deverakonda is at the peak of his career, can he continue this success streak and become a star hero?

For any small or upcoming hero to become a star, he needs to score at least two to three huge blockbusters and follow up with a few more hits which can satisfy all sections of audiences.

We have seen actors who faded away after scoring huge blockbusters as they failed to plan their career properly. The likes of Uday Kiran and Tarun scored big hits at one point but they couldn’t sustain at top for long.

Allari Naresh too scored a relatively huge hit with Sudigadu when compared to his previous hits, but he hasn’t scored a solid hit ever since. Nani on the other hand has been delivering successive hits and he is already regarded as the biggest hero among mid-range ones.

Vijay on the other hand scored a blockbuster with ‘Pelli Choopulu’ last year and Arjun Reddy this year. In between, he had a flop called ‘Dwaraka’. In fact, he signed Dwaraka before Pelli Choopulu so he hasn’t yet made a bad choice post Pelli Choopulu. Vijay thus checked the primary requirement of two blockbusters. Whereas he won class audiences with PC, he won masses with Arjun Reddy.

Coming to planning, he has signed Geetha Arts film next. Being directed by the talented Parasuram, it is likely to be a minimum guarantee film. If Vijay can come up with a few more films that cater to all sections, he can pose a challenge to the stars.
