Sai Kumar, who has contested last assembly elections on a BJP ticket, seems to be ready to bid goodbye to the party, which honoured him with Karnataka Rajotsava Award. The actor-turned-politician met former minister Janardhan Reddy at Chanchalguda jail on Tuesday (January 29) to discuss about his future plans.
According to reports, Sai Kumar has told the tainted minister that he was willing to leave the BJP and join the BSR Congress headed by Janardhan Reddy's friend and former minister B Sriramulu. In fact, the actor has told a section of media that he would be contesting next elections from the Bagepally constituency.
It has to be noted that Sai Kumar actively participated and organised the Hampi Utsav when Janardhan Reddy was Tourism Minister. Well, he is the latest cine star after actress Rakshita and director-actor Prem to join the BSR Congress. However, the actor had lost the last election to his rival by a close margin.
Meanwhile, Sai Kumar, who tasted huge success in Upendra starrer's recent film Kalpana, is busy with his upcoming film Angulimala directed by Baragauru Ramachandrappa.
