His Quotes 'I play characters of ordinary men in extraordinary circumstances. I like characters who have a perspective for right and wrong.'

'Admiration is not adorning the cutouts with blood or indulging in fights with other fans. But being of help to the needy, living life again by donating eyes after death is what I call genuine admiration of a fan.'

'If you are aware of the changing trends and take measures to hold on to your seat, you can stretch your period of superstardom.'

'Among the many skilled performers who toil in front of the camera, only a few are excellent actors. A fewer still are those with the vague and elusive traits we call star quality. At the intersection of these groups is the most selected group of all, a tiny number among whom Chiranjeevi stands out. The reality is - I am an actor. My fans perceive me as a Megastar'.
About Him Mahesh Bhatt (Director) :
“He is a director's actor."

K.Balachander (Director) :
Chiranjeevi has both Kamal Haasan and Rajnikanth in him. Not only can he do action, he can also act."

Akkineni Nagarjuna (Actor) :
“There is only one numero uno hero in Telugu cinema and he is Chiranjeevi.”
His views About Parenting :
"Parents should never be overbearing. You must make your children believe in you. Make them trust you. Children are very fragile -- take care to treat them with kid gloves. Above all, you must understand your children."
