They have selected 10 heroes, 10 heroines and 10 directors for Super Star ballot contest. People have to buy the magazine and circle their favorite hero, heroine and director and mail to Jyoti Chitra office. Among the 10 people they have nominated for Super Star hero in the ballot are NTR, ANR, Krishna, Shoban Babu, Krishnam Raju, Murali Mohan, Chandra Mohan, Ranganath, Chiranjeevi and one more name I don’t remember. Similarly they have chosen Jaya Sudha, Jaya Prada, Sridevi, Jaya Chitra, Prabha, Sri Priya, Madhavi, etc. in heroine category. Dasari, Ragavendra Rao, Bapayya, K Vishwanath, Bapu, etc. in Directors category.

Winners of 1982 Super star contest: They have announced top 3 positions and winner is the Super Star.
Super Star hero: NTR, ANR (second), Krishna (third)
Super Star heroine: Jaya Sudha, Sridevi (second), Jaya Prada (third)
Super Star Director: Dasari, K Ragahavendra Rao (second), K. Vishwanath (third I guess)

NTR entered into politics and we all know he is the Super star with his popularity, success and ballot contest as well. Jyoti Chitra decided to conduct 1983 ballot contest without NTR because he is no more in movies and busy with his Telugu Desham party campaign.

Winners of 1983 Super star contest: They have announced top 3 positions and winner is the Super Star.
Super Star hero: Krishna, ANR (second), Shoban Babu (third)
Super Star heroine: Jaya Sudha, Sridevi (second), Jaya Prada (third)
Super Star Director: Dasari, K Ragahavendra Rao (second), K. Vishwanath (third I guess)

Krishna received his first Super Star in 1983 & ANR remained in second spot, and Shoban Babu reached third spot. No changes in Super Star heroine and Super Star director contest. May be NTR and Krishna have similar mass following like ANR & Shoban Babu have class following. After NTR exit from movies his fans may have chosen Krishna for voting? That is why ANR remained in second place even after NTR left tollywood field.

Jyoti Chitra conducted ballot poll again in 1984 and got the same responses and same results. There is no change in competition and it is not going to do any benefit other than increasing Jyoti Chitra magazine sales. Organizers decided to stop the contest.

In my opinion this is the best recognition & honor for any star because this is public recognition with ballot voting not chosen by fans. I would put this award above any award given by fans.

So many blogs are putting this information incorrectly, especially some blogs publicizing Krishna as the first Super Star which is not correct. We can use adjectives to praise our favourite stars but we can not change the facts. If anyone preserved hard copy or scanned copy of 1982 Jyoti Chitra please share.

Below link shows how much respect and admiration Krishna has for NTR:

Why fans are publicizing the incorrect facts? Hopefully Krish Jagarlamudi will show the facts in NTR biopic.
