Telugu actor Pawan Kalyan's latest release Attarintiki Daredi has become a blockbuster. 

The action-thriller film is a getting a good response in India as well as overseas and filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma is all praise for the actor.

‘For the first time in indian film history I am told hollywood film companies are tracking the telugu film Attarintiki Daaredi collections. I am told tht becos of the enoromous collections american distributors nd theatre owners r learning 2 pronounce Attarintiki daaredi right,’ RGV tweeted.

He added: ‘Pawan kalyan achieved the peak of himalaya whereas chiranjeevigaru after 40 years is still at the base of that mountain. Names like Mega star are too small for power star..he should be renamed as the Tsunami star.’

Ramu insisted Pawan Kalyan to enter politics and start his own party. ‘I just hope that pawan kalyan realises that this earth shattering success is not becos of him but it is becos of peoples love towards him. Even after this proof of how much people love him if kalyan still doesnt start his own party he will be the biggest idiot,’ he signed off.

Pawan is the younger brother of actor-turned-politician Chiranjeevi.
