Ever since the Congress party faced a debacle in 2014's elections, former union minister, MP of Rajya Sabha and Megastar Chiranjeevi appeared to have been distancing from the party. Until two years ago, he was seen in Congress party's meets. In fact, Chiranjeevi, himself, launched one crore signatures campaign for AP's special status on behalf of the Congress party.
However, Chiranjeevi was seen nowhere in AP Congress meets held recently. He skipped Rahul Gandhi's meet yesterday in Guntur. Obviously, opposition parties expressed doubts if Chiranjeevi would resign the party soon. On the other hand, Congress leaders have made it clear that Chiranjeevi left for China for the South Indian Stars meet and that was why he couldn't attend Dasari Narayana Rao's last rites ceremony.
Whatsoever, not only the opposition parties but also the people of AP are of the opinion that Chiranjeevi gave up politics completely and is doing the movies regularly keeping himself a busy bee in Tollywood.
Are all these speculation right? According to inside sources, all these gossips are wrong and can be thrown to trash bins. Chiranjeevi is strategically growing his image by leaps and bounds doing industry hit films. His latest offing Khaidi Number 150 has been an industry hit with Rs.106 crores share. Moreover, the makers of his next film Uyyalawada Narasimhareddy have been succeeded in getting the hype on the project even before its launch. Reportedly, the Congress high command also, delightfully permitted Chiranjeevi to go ahead in movies. They also reckon that the more films Chiranjeevi does will become more advantageous to Chiranjeevi and the Congress party. Chiranjeevi is expected to make a reentry into politics next year's end.
In fact, TDP and the party's yellow media are well aware of all these developments. As such, the ruling party denied permissions to Khaidi Number 150's pre release event. Yellow media also tried to reduce the impact of Khaidi giving huge support to opposition films. Meanwhile, Chiranjeevi led Congress party is likely to join hands with a fast emerging political party for 2019's elections.
