When Pawan Kalyans guts surprised us 23 years ago

It was on this day in 1996 that Pawan Kalyan debuted with 'Akkada Ammayi Ikkada Abbayi'. Directed by EVV Satyanarayana, the film was welcomed with enthusiasm by Megastar Chiranjeevi's fans, who saw in the future Power Star their own brother!

One aspect that wowed the audience is this: More than the film's subject and comedy (which was EVV's biggest strength), the film was talked about for Pawan's daredevil stunts. A Karate exponent, Pawan performed stunts like letting heavy vehicles bulldoze over his fingers for real! This particular scene in the movie fascinated everyone from a child to a middle-aged person. Whether or not they went to the theatre to watch the scene, it was a popular one because of the widespread 'word of mouth' talk.

Years later, in 'Tammudu', Pawan's gutsy and earnest kickboxing moments wowed the audience. Those were the days when he commanded a lot of love for the kind of subjects he was choosing.
