Latest trend among the Tollywood actors is Television Shows. With the backing of big corporations, who are ready to pump loads of money in to TV shows, more and more famous actors are coming on board to host TV shows, which was once only seen as a cheap thing. Top Tollywood actors are ready to become anchors or award show host, if the money is good.
Earlier only senior actors such as Naga Babu, Roja, K Raghavendra Rao, Nagarjuna and Chiranjeevi were brought in to host the shows. However, with the changing times, even the top actors are now brought on board, as the TRP ratings look promising.

Post Baahubali2 success, Rana became household name across India. The ‘No 1 Yaari' makers wanted to cash his craze by bringing him to small screen and making it big among the television audience
