A sandalwood actor called Darshan was conferred the title of "Challenging Star" for no particular reason as far as my research went. He recently challenged the law by abusing his wife and beating her black and blue. He even spent a few challenging days in prison in the company of other elite politicians. But-then-again, the fans love him, so he faces the challenge once more in court, gets bail and miraculously, yet-again, once more, his movie is a hit!! Unbelievable? Believe it! It's a challenge!

Usage

I can't do a real one, so lifted a fan comment from a blog for real effect:
Hello, guys this is shri from mysore .
v r big fan of sir challenging star darshan. hats of to our sandalwood superstar darshan.

Another son of the Dr.Rajkumar family, Puneeth Rajkumar came to be known as the Power Star in sandalwood. Puneeth is said to command nearly 2 Crores per movie, which only the besht of the besht can command. This is the highest by any Kannada actor. Rumours are that he has been approached by UTV for a 3 film contract for a whopping 9 crores.

Puneeth is also the only actor so far who has had 9 consecutive hit movies successfully running for 100+ days.

Now if that's not power, what is?

Usage

Ramiah, a lineman from the Sadashivnagar BESCOM had a lucky day today as he answered the phone to receive a complaint of "no current" from none other than the Power Star Puneeth Rajkumar! Needless to say, the power was immediately restored to the area and Ramiah's joys knew no boundaries as he distributed sweets to his entire office that evening.

Sandalwood's Uppi or Upendra as he was named at birth holds the coveted title of "Real Star". His Facebook page says: He is the real star of the Kannada film industry. Upendra is also known as the most competent creative director who has set his own trend in directing films. His name spells energy, intelligence and also a huge level of passion to reach out people with fresh ideas and novel concepts. As a writer he has achieved distinction by writing anything that is simple, but yet effective to make a big impact.

Real or not, you decide. But the man is Real!

Usage

Since Puneeth and Shiva Rajkumar had stopped producing hits in the last couple of years, there was no real star who could replace the void that was created in sandalwood. Thankfully, along came Real star Uppi, who produced hits like Om and Tharle nan maga. Jai Karnataka!
