Bilinguals lack the fire power
  Till sometime back bilingual entertainers used to mint money at the box office capturing the imagination of movie lovers in both languages. But of late, things changed drastically so much so that stars started rejecting the offers to bilinguals as many bilinguals turned out to be not so popular ventures.

Young and upcoming actor Aadi rejected bilingual offer recently and he said he did so after watching the current trend at the box office. Super Star Mahesh Babu got a huge bilingual shock when his much talked about bilingual entertainer Spyder with Murugadoss turned out to be a huge disaster at the box office. Though the makers took the utmost care to scene every scene twice, in each language to get the lip sync right and Mahesh Babu dubbed in Tamil for his role, the film failed to attract anyone.

Longtime back Allu Sirish made his debut with a bilingual entertainer Gouravam. The film touched upon honor killings, but it failed miserably at the box office. Aadi and Allu Sirish both say that one should concentrate more on Telugu language rather than try to impress viewers from both languages. They feel that it is better to shoot in Telugu and then dub in other languages.

Natural Star Nani says he has taken a conscious decision not to do bilingual films after his bilngual films Jenda Pai Kapiraju and Veppam bombed at the box office. Aadi says since the tastes and nativity of Tamil and Telugu people are completely different, there is very limited scope for the bilinguals to turn out to be blockbusters at the box office.

They also point out that bilinguals increase the cost of production and instead it is better to shoot in one language and dub in another language, the formula which the Tamil filmmakers are following quite effectively.

Young hero Sharwanand tried bilinguals but his films are yet to release at the box office. Mega Power Star Ram Charan too tried his luck with the bilingual entertainer Zanjeer/Toofan, which happened to be his Bollywood debut film. The film turned out to be a disaster at the box office. Even hot beauties Anushka and Trisha too tried their luck with few bilingual entertainers but met with little luck at the box office.
