Kannada actor-turned-politician Ambareesh, who was the Minister of state in the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting in Manmohan Singh Government, has now taken part in the Karnataka Congress MLAs' 'Bellary Chalo Padayatra' programme yesterday (02 August). The Padayatra started on Sunday on Jul 25 and the rebel star joined opposition leader Siddaramayya, RV Deshpande, DK Shivakumar on the ninth day of the Padayatra.
The Congress MLAs have already crossed 180 Kms and reached a village near Chitradurga. After joining the Padayatra, the Kannada actor spoke to the media and said, "I was very busy with the shooting works, when the Bellary Chalo Padayatra started. So I could not make it to the occasion. But now I am free from all responsibilities and I would stay here with all the party leaders and workers tonight."
After crossing a little distance in the Padayatra the Mandyada Gandu star got into his car. When asked about it, he replied, "I'm suffering from leg pain and I can't walk. So I will reach the place by car. Moreover, I don't like to have publicity by walking in the group. So I would like to go by car."
Meanwhile, the arrival of Ambi into the Padayatra had brought new life to the tired worker of Congress party, who had continuously been walking for nine long days. In addition to this, thousand of Ambi fans had also joined the Padayatra yesterday. They were quite curious to see their hero. This led to rush and stamped in the Padayatra, but there was no unusual reported.
However, Ambareesh is currently busy with the shooting of Kichcha Sudeep starrer movie Veera Parampare. The Kannada actor, who is playing a very important role in the film, has already completed his shooting portions in Belgaum and Hubli. Recently, the film crew has moved to Mysore. Another specialty of the film is that director Vijayalakshmi Singh is acting alongside Ambi.
