Do you know who is the first Tollywood actor to act in Hollywood?

Of late, the boundaries between Bollywood, Tollywood and Kollywood are getting erased as most of the south stars are getting wider recognition with Pan India. Though some of the Bollywood actors like Naseeruddin Shah, Aishwarya Rai, Kabir Bedi have acted in a few Hollywood movies, none from the Telugu film industry have been a part of the Hollywood movies except one.

A few decades ago, Chiranjeevi was almost set to make his Hollywood debut with a movie, but it got shelved due to some unsaid reasons. But, there’s a Telugu actor who acted in a Hollywood which most of us are not aware of.

He is none other than the legendary Rajanali who was mostly seen as the villain in the movies during 1960s and 70s. Rajanala acted in a Hollywood movie titled Maya – The Magnicient. Rajanala and Kantha Rao’s pair as the villain and hero was most successful as they appeared in many folklore movies.
