The Telugu superstar burst onto the South Indian silver screen with his blockbuster movie Pokiri almost 10 years ago. In the year under review, he starred and co-produced a drama film Brahmotsavam, which collected Rs 63 crore at the box office worldwide. Last year, he was the highest earner among the 13 South Indian celebrities on our list. There is speculation that he will star opposite actor Deepika Padukone in a movie that will see her in the role of Sanghamitra, emperor Ashoka's daughter. The high-budget movie will be made in Tamil, Hindi and Telugu.
