Acting Encyclopedias ' Both Nadigar Thilagam 'Chevalier' Sivaji Ganesan and Akkineni Nageswara Rao have received the highest national recognition for an actor, the Dadasaheb Phalke award for their contribution to cinema. Both have essayed roles across various genres such as mythological, drama and social films but most of all their influence on subsequent generations of actors will be regarded as their greatest achievement. Their performances even today serve as lessons for aspiring actors.

Jaishankar - Krishna

Classic Cowboys ' The late 70s witnessed south Indian cinema attempting Hollywood style action flicks and the 'go-to' men for these projects had always been Jaishankar and Superstar Krishna.

  1. Some of the comparisons are silly. Superstar Krishna in telugu had a much bigger image than what Jaishanker had anytime in Tamil. Krishna had a enviable following durng late 1970s and till late 1980s. He was the tip star of telugu cinema during that time
