After Power Star Pawan Kalyan, another popular Telugu
actor has declared his support to BJP's prime ministerial candidate
Narendra Modi. He is none other than
Akkineni Nagarjuna, who met the leader in Ahmedabad
on this evening (March 24). Sources close to the actor says that
the star was there to seek Lok Sabha ticket for his wife Amala
For that last few days, political and film circles were abuzz
with speculations that the actress-turned-activist is keen to
contest Lok Sabha elections from Vijayawada. Amala Akkineni held
talks with senior BJP leader M Venkaiah Naidu during last few days.
It was immediately not clear if Nagarjuna would also take a plunge
into electoral politics.
Son of thespian Akkineni Nageswara Rao, who died recently,
Nagarjuna is one of the top actors of Tollywood. Nageswara Rao was
never interested in politics, but the family maintained good
relations with TDP and Congress when they were in power.
Nagarjuna is meeting Modi two days after Pawan Kalyan met the
Gujarat chief minister in Ahmedabad to extend his support. The
Power Star, youngest brother of central minister and Congress
leader K Chiranjeevi, floated a political party Jana Sena March 14
and called upon people to bury the Congress.
