Two big families of the Telugu Film Industry and how they are related to each other

A lot of times, it takes only understanding the big families of a film industry to understand the entire industry itself. And one such industry is the Telugu Film Industry or Tollywood which is practically run by these three families:

The Chiranjeevi Family

Megastar Chiranjeevi is the eldest brother of three brothers - Chiranjeevi, Nagendra Babu and Pawan Kalyan. They are the Konidelas. Chiranjeevi (M. Surekha) has three children - Sushmita, Sreeja and Ram Charan (M. Upasana Konidela). Ram Charan is also a Telugu actor. Nagendra Babu has two children - Varun Tej and Niharika Konidela (M. Chaitanya JV). Both Varun and Niharika are actors. Pawan Kalyan is a massive actor, with the star-tag ‘Power Star’.

The Allu Family

Chiranjeevi’s wife, Surekha, is Allu Ramalingiah’s daughter. He was a veteran Telugu actor and freedom fighter. Surekha is, thus, the sister of Allu Arvind. Allu Arvind is an extremely successful producer in the industry. He has three children - Allu Bobby (M. Allu Neelu Shah), Allu Arjun (M. Allu Sneha Reddy) and Allu Sirish. Allu Arjun and Allu Sirish are actors. Hence, Chiranjeevi the paternal uncle of Stylish Star Allu Arjun, Allu Bobby and Allu Sirish. Allu Arvind is the maternal uncle of Ram Charan, Sreeja and Sushmita. The children are, therefore, first-cousins.

All this can get confusing. So let us know below in the comments if you understood!
