Hyderabad, Feb 18: Victory Venkatesh who is about to begin shooting for his next multi-starrer 'Venky Mama' with his nephew Naga Chaitanya has become the torch-bearer of multi-starrers in T-town.
"Venkatesh is keeping the multistarrers alive and kicking because very few stars dare to share screen space with their peers," says director Samudra and adds, "Venkatesh is the only starred from the generation of Chiranjeevi, Balakrishna and Nagarjuna-to share screen space with other actors in this 25 years old career," he adds.
Although, Nagarjuna did one film with Nani 'Devdas' recently but Venkatesh has been doing it without taking a break. “Venkatesh is a freidnly actor and doesn’t mind few good scenes going this co-star and hence he is able to do more multi-hero movies these days," adds director Chandra Siddarth. Although, he had delivered solo hits like ‘Drushyam’ and ‘Guru’ but he is game for two-hero movies as well.
"He is striking a balance between solo and multi-starrers depending upon the scripts," Samudra points out. In fact, his onscreen chemistry with Mahesh Babu, Pawan Kalyan and Varun Tej in ‘F2’ has given other stars to think about joining hands with family hero like Venky.
