The Perfect Competitor:
Though Kalyan has been in the industry for a very long time, yet he does not become complacent about his hold and fan following. A successful man knows his competition and always thrives on talented opposition. Seen here with another telegu heart throb Mahesh Babu. It is a strictly professional competition as they are very cordial friends in real life.
The Cool Cat:
He comes across very stylish in both his movies and real life. With a costume designer for his wife in real life, it is no surprise that he is always well dressed in public. His very average looks don’t deter the cool style in him. His female fan following finds it a very endearing quality in him.

Penny For a Thought:
He is extremely well read and loves reading the works of spiritual leaders like Swami Vivekananda. He was so influenced and moved by the works of Akira Kurosawa that he named one of his children after the legendary writer. Though some say he stars in mindless and regressive movies this man has his mind in the right places.
He is very fond of kids and always encourages them on every matter. May it be his kids or others he is very fond of children. Seen here at the dance recital of his little Aadhya, they look adorable together.

The Kalyan family is very proud of their identical moustaches. A similar one was sported by his brother Chiranjivi Kalyan. The moustache is a matter of dignity and pride for these men and quite frankly it lifts their overall looks into a more dignified one.
Modern Day Gabbar:
The most iconic role of this superstar was as a cop in Gabbar, which was a remake of the blockbuster Dabangg. His manly looks suit the role to the tee. His action hero aspect is an added plus as he had choreographed a few fight sequences too. Being Gabbar was never this stylish before.
The Thinking Actor:
Pawan Kalyan is often compared to Aamir Khan in Bollywood as he is extremely well read and a thinking actor who is a multi talented technician too.
This man is truly a trend setter. The word Pawanism was coined by his fans to denote their love and frenzy for the actor. It has also been the name of a well researched book authored by one of his ardent fans. This is truly the highest form of adulation.
Pawan Kalyan is a success story that inspires millions. Surely a movie star’s life is far beyond makeup and he is a valid proof to this theory.
