Popular film actress Sumalatha is planning to make her entry in the politics. Her husband Ambareesh breathed his last sometime back. He was also a popular actor and also served as a minister in Congress government. The buzz is that she will make her political entry in Mandya Loksabha constituency.
Ambareesh did not contest in the election last time because of the health issues. Even Sumalatha is planning to continue in Congress party but JDS is expecting the same constituency as the party is in the alliance with Congress.
Rockline Venkatesh and few others from the film industry are extending their support to Sumalatha. The buzz is that Kumara Swamy’s son Nikhil might contest for Loksabha from the same constituency. If Sumalatha still continues to contest for it, it will lead to a clash of vote.
