Pawan Kalyan celebrated Jana Sena formation day

Power Star Pawan Kalyan, one of the leading actors of Telugu cinema, is celebrating his birthday today (2 September). The actor turns 43.

Pawan Kalyan, brother of actor-turned-politician Chiranjeevi, began his acting career with Telugu film "Akkada Ammayi Ikkada Abbayi" in 1996. Since then, he has starred in several blockbuster flicks including "Tholi Prema", "Kushi", "Thammudu", "Theenmaar", "Panjaa" and "Gabbar Singh".

Power star has a multi-faceted personality with bundles of talent. He has also tried his hands at various skills including martial arts, direction, screenwriting, stunt coordination and choreography.

In his upcoming film, "Atharintiki Daaredi", Pawan has lent his voice to record a song. The video of Pawan singing the "Kaatam Rayuda" song was shared on YouTube just a few days ahead of the film's scheduled release (8 August). The video has taken the internet by storm receiving more than 20 lakh views.

The release of "Atharintiki Daaredi", a family entertainer, has been delayed due to the Telangana issue. The film is expected to hit the screens this month. However, the makers have not yet confirmed on the same.

Pawan will next be seen in the sequel to his 2012 blockbuster "Gabbar Singh". Director Sampath Nandi will be helming the project this time for "Gabbar Singh 2".
