Earlier today ,Megastar Chiranjeevi started to Kirlampudi, East Godavari district, to visit Kapu crusader Mudragada Padmanabham, who is fasting unto death demanding for Kapu reservation. Being a Congress MP and a famous personality from the same community, Chiranjeevi wanted to extend his support to the mission.
However, the actor turned politician, along with a few other political leaders were arrested at the Rajamundry airport, before they met the Kapu leader. Chiranjeevi's support to the issue is expected to raise the intensity of the protests. Meanwhile, Congress workers are protesting against the arrest, alleging that it is unjust to take leaders into the custody, who has come to extend their support.
Chiranjeevi, who had a shoulder surgery a couple of days ago, was in fact advised to take a minimum of two weeks rest. But, the actor has decided to come out in favor of the serious protests by Kapu leaders, which are currently putting the political scenario of the state, ablaze.
On the other hand, mega fans are worried about the actor's health, while they are condemning the arrest, as well. Megastar Chiranjeevi had undergone a shoulder surgery at a private hospital in Mumbai on Thursday and it is said to be a very minor surgery.
"Over the last few months, he's been struggling with some pain in his shoulder. He has finally decided to get it operated as he starts shooting for his next film from March, and doesn't want the pain to aggravate," the source informed.
