Naveen Polishetty seems to have become the in-demand actor in Tollywood now, thanks to his recent blockbuster hit Miss Shetty Mr Polishetty.
Quite naturally, film producers are contending to invest in him because of two factors — one, his unique sense of bringing freshness to every story that experiments with; two, his perpetual effort to dish out heartfelt laughter.
But, during an interview with the media recently, Polishetty expressed no haste.
His calmness reflected his philosophy and his wish is to attract fans and entertain the masses with his stories. The actor claimed that box office numbers, hits, and blockbusters fall secondary for him.
Top producers meet Polishetty
Meanwhile, two top banners in Tollywood evinced interest in collaborating with Naveen Polishetty.
Naveen Yerneni and Y Ravi Shankar from Mythri Movie Makers met Naveen recently and presented him with a bouquet over the success of Miss Shetty Mr Polishetty.
The makers of Rangasthalam (2018) and Waltair Veerayya (2023) wouldn’t just greet an actor usually soon after success. Apparently, the development seems to be sending some feelers.
Congratulations @NaveenPolishety for the Hat-trick blockbusters 💥💥💥
Looking forward to work on something exciting soon!

In the past, they approached Vijay Deverakonda soon after the success of Arjun Reddy (2017). Thus, Dear Comrade (2019) manifested without any delay.
People Media Factory founder TG Vishwa Prasad, too, wooed Polishety.
But how far have they been successful in convincing an actor like him who would not do regular, “mass masala”, or “commercial potboilers”? Because it is not his cup of tea.

At the forefront
Since practices of film business and film publicity have been constantly changing, Naveen Polishetty has the edge in devising marketing strategies to sell himself as well as his film.
Not limiting himself as an actor, he has been at the forefront of promoting the film everywhere.
Even three weeks after the release of Miss Shetty Mr Polishetty, the actor frequently kept meeting audiences and his fans to elicit feedback. Though he doesn’t benefit from the post-release promotions, it is the love of his fans that propels him to go the extra mile.
Starring Anushka Shetty and Naveen Polishetty, Miss Shetty Mr Polishetty was released on 7 September in theatres. Written and directed by Mahesh Babu Pachigolla, the romantic comedy is estimated to have grossed ₹23 crore.
