Film celebs and Politics

It is a well know fact that film personalities and their political interests go hand in hand. Starting from NTR as the then Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, Jayalalitha, the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, to the Megastar Chiranjeevi who ran the Praja Rajyam Party, all have demonstrated their flair to rule the crowd with their mere words. The dabble continues for celebs into politics, with the likes of Rajesh Khanna, Vinod Khanna and Dasari Narayana Rao, all being a part of it. However, the focus has now shifted towards the top directors of Tollywood. There had been ongoing discussions about V V Vinayak soon joining politics, with the ace director himself expressing an interest to do so in future. There is also a continued debate on how Puri Jagannath is well connected to YS Jagan and his support for the latter. S S Rajamouli, the ‘no flop’ sure shot director also is well known to support Dr Jayaprakash Narayan, leader of Loksatta. This and more, there is always some sort of magical chemistry between showbiz and political circus. Films were made and conveyed to the people about the current scenario. This well connected with the masses as they could well visualise Aishwarya Rai as ala Jayalalitha, Paresh Rawal as Sardar Vallabhai Patel and Mohanlal as MGR Cameo, to name a few. So, let us see what a ‘megaphone wielder’ can bring out in the game of public welfare and beyond.
