Power Star Pawan Kalyan's Powerful story

Everything he does, even his silence, makes news. In a career spanning 14 years, his films have set and broken records time and again. People who have see n him from up close, speak volumes about his sincerity. Pawan Kalyan is something more than his stardom and he continues to be an enigma. Yet, he’s probably one of the most misunderstood actors in the industry today. Being Pawan Kalyan is a tough job indeed! Hemanth Kumar finds out more about him and what makes his life a paradox
He’s one of 21st century’s biggest icons of Telugu cinema, but stardom means nothing to him. He has a mammoth cult following, yet not much is known about his private life. He stays away from the limelight, but once he’s onscreen he sets it on fire and how! We would be at a loss of words if we had to describe what it means to be Pawan Kalyan. His life seems to be a paradox of everything we expect from a film star. If we could deconstruct his image as a Power star, he comes across as a normal human being with great ideals. Pawan Kalyan has indeed set himself apart, but that hasn’t deterred his fans from thinking the world about him. Recently, a leading national daily conducted a survey on what Indians are talking about on Orkut. Guess what? The Orkut community dedicated to Pawan Kalyan is ranked no.1 ahead of all other celebs in India! Everything he does, even his silence, makes news! Life hasn’t exactly been a bed of roses for Pawan Kalyan. He has seen both sides of the coin and knows the importance of being grounded to reality. In the late 70s Pawan Kalyan grew up in a middle class family with four siblings. As a kid, he was closer to his sisters Vijaya and Madhavi. His father used to work in the Police department and later shifted to the excise department. His eldest brother, Chiranjeevi went on to become the Megastar of Telugu Cinema. Many years later when Chiranjeevi moved to Chennai, Pawan Kalyan stayed with his brother and sister in law, Surekha for quite sometime. The bond with Surekha grew stronger and stronger and she has been a motherly figure to him ever since.
Amitabh Bachchan was one of his favourite actors when he was young. In short, he was the cynosure of all eyes when he was a kid; however life changed once he entered his adolescence. When he was in class 8, he threw a small birthday bash for his friends. After the party he stepped out of the house and saw scores of beggars desperately looking for food. This sight of poverty moved him so much that he vowed to never celebrate his birthday again. Another interesting incident occurred when he was in class 10th. He was escorted by a policeman and kept in jail for seven hours because his bicycle didn’t have a dynamo attached! That wasn’t his only brush with police. He literally gets escorted by the police, every time he makes a public appearance for the furore he creates. Once, when he staged a protest outside a popular English daily for libeling him, the traffic came to a grinding halt and he had to be escorted. The last time such an incident had occurred was when Rajinikanth created a roadblock in Chennai, when his car was stopped to make way for the then Chief Minister, Jayalalitha’s convoy.
When it came to studies, he hardly ever took interest and ended up being a drop out after he failed in his intermediate exams. But the story doesn’t end there. A little later in his life he got addicted to books. It’s an open secret that the lives of Che Guevara and Martin Luther King have had a huge influence on him. And so did books written by Kahlil Gibran, Paramahamsa Yogananada and Ramana Maharshi. When he’s at home, he reads books till 4 am and hardly sleeps for 4-5 hours everyday. He has left quite a few people stunned with his fluency in English despite being a drop out. Apart from books, Pawan Kalyan is into classical music and has made an attempt to learn violin in the past. Not many know that the actor takes a lot of interest in nature, rainwater harvesting and even organic farming. He had bought a huge chunk of land near Hyderabad where he planted saplings and started irrigating the land a few years ago! Like we said, he’s a man of few words and believes in leading a simple life despite the cult status he has outside the precincts of his house.
Once he’s inside those four walls, the image of a Power Star vanishes and he gets into the shoes of a caring husband and a doting father of two kids. After his first marriage failed, he fell in love with his co-star Renu Desai. But it wasn’t love at first sight on the sets of Puri Jagannadh’s Badri which had released in 2000. Renu Desai’s drift towards Pawan Kalyan was slow and as they began to understand each other, nothing could stop them from leading a happy life. In 2004 the couple was blessed with a son. Pawan Kalyan decided to pay homage to his favourite director, Akira Kurosawa and named his son Akira Nandan. The duo got married officially in 2009 and recently they were blessed with a daughter who has been named as Aadhya.
