When Venkatesh was asked to comment on Chiranjeevi's political entry, the hero says, "I just don't know anything about politics. My job is to look for good subject and play hero in films. In case, I find leisure time, I would try to spend it in spiritual programmes. As a contemporary, I will just congratulate him for taking such a bold step and wish him every success."
He further commented that the media is unnecessarily creating hype over Chiranjeevi's political entry though the Mega Star did not make any specific statement over the subject.
