Telugu superstar Jr NTR has finally completed 15 years in the Tollywood industry. Born as Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao, the actor is the grandson of veteran Telugu actor and former Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, NT Rama Rao .
Jr NTR made his acting debut in Ninnu Choodalani, which released on 25 May 2001 and failed to set the Box Office registers ringing. But the superstar made a terrific comeback with his second outing - Student No 1, a super hit at the Box Office. The film also marked the debut of Baahubali director, SS Rajamouli in Telugu cinema. The actor's 2002 release Aadi was also a huge success.

The film ran more than 200 days at the cinemas, establishing Jr NTR as a superstar and Rajamouli as a hitmaker in Tollywood. The actor's recently released films Temper and 2016 release Nannaku Prematho were also hits at the Box Office.
