Both Kajal Aggarwal and Tamannaah have had a splendid run in Telugu cinema over the years. They’ve paired with all the top stars there and continue to be busy with films alongside saleable heroes. But it must be said that they aren’t at the very top now, though they are still running the race. Kajal has had a mixed year in Tollywood with Awe doing well while her MLA was a failure at the box-office. Tamannaah, on the other hand, had Naa Nuvve which was an absolute disaster at the ticket windows.
On Friday, December 7th, Kajal had Kavacham while Tamannaah had Next Enti releasing in theatres. Both the star heroines did an extensive round of promotions pre-release, for their respective films and were hoping to bounce back strongly with a Hit. But unfortunately, the early reviews and box-office opening for both the films haven’t been favourable and it looks like both the films will sink without a trace. 2.0 will continue to lead the way in the Telugu states in its 2nd week too, with hardly any competition from these two new releases.
Next up, Kajal will move on to Indian 2 while Tamannaah will be seen in a special song in KGF. Both of them will also be seen in the Tamil and Telugu remakes of Queen respectively. It’ll be ridiculous to write them off after just one below-par year!
