Annavru Kept A Safe Distance
Though his counterparts in the neighbouring states - MG Ramachandran and NT Ramarao became Chief Ministers, Dr Rajkumar kept a safe distance from all the political parties in the state.
They Never Enter Politics
Earlier, Rajkumar fans claimed that Annavru kept a safe distance from politics, and the same is maintained by his sons - Shivraj Kumar, Puneet Rajkumar and Raghavendra Rajkumar. So, Geethakka entering politics is out of question.
