Highlights

Armed forces have made an indelible impact in society, so much so that every child at one point or the others dreams of donning the uniform the green camouflage uniform donned by the army personnel. Even we are not much different, every time we see a man in uniform, there is a surge in patriotic fervour and saluting to them becomes second to nature.

Armed forces have made an indelible impact in society, so much so that every child at one point or the others dreams of donning the uniform the green camouflage uniform donned by the army personnel. Even we are not much different, every time we see a man in uniform, there is a surge in patriotic fervour and saluting to them becomes second to nature.

Imagine stars donning uniforms of the armed forces on large screen, it for sure gives goosebumps. When Allu Arjun donned the camouflage uniform for a few minutes in a song sequence for the movie ‘Sarrainodu’, audience went gaga over it and fans were raving about the small sequence. So, if any actor dons a full length role, the impact of it on audience and fans will be manifold.

Rana Daggubati in his recent outing ‘PNS Ghazi’ donned all whites of navy and he scorched the screen. The roles of armed men always enticed the actors and audience. Following Rana’s stint as armed service man in ‘Ghazi’, young actors are increasingly opting for uniform donning roles.
Happening actor Sai DharamTej will be seen in the role of army jawan in his upcoming flick ‘Jawan’. Going by the trailer of the movie, looks like the movie is laced with family drama and Sai DharamTej nailed the look of an army man.

Joining the bandwagon, reigning star Nani, who is taking the film industry by storm with string of successes, will be seen in the role of an army man in his next outing, ‘Dil’ Raju production ‘MCA’. Though not many details about the movie are revealed, it is a tantalising prospect to see the actor, who is usually seen in chocolate boy or boy next door roles.

Summing up the trend, producer-director Chandra Siddharth says depicting actors as army personnel elevates heroism to a different level altogether. “Earlier, directors and writers used cops to elevate heroism. Armed man role is a notch above cops. Back in the 90s and 2000s the scale of production and economics made armed man stories not viable, now with the increasing budget the makers can afford these type of stories,” he opines.

The director says that stories revolving around army personnel evoke the feelings of nationalism among audience and in the current nationalistic scenario in the country, these movies usually tick. The trend of actors donning camouflage uniform started with Krish’s ‘Kanche’, in which Varun Tej played a role of a jawan. With the young crop of actors increasingly opting for stories revolving around armed forces personnel, audience are panting for more in the genre.
