Telugu superstar Chiranjeevi entered politics with the launch of his party Praja Rajyam (which means the rule of the masses). Chiranjeevi, who has a mass appeal among audiences in Andhra Pradesh has made this plunge at the age of 53. He joins or rather extends the tradition of cine stars taking to politics after being successful in their Cine careers. His entry into politics is on similar lines as former Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, Late Mr. N.T Rama Rao, who made a shift from cinedom to politics.
Though Chiranjeevi has huge support behind him in the form of fan following, he would be aware that the promises made in real life to the multitude are different from the lines of dialogues in ‘reel’ life. The former being the reason behind many Cine stars refrained from politics despite being popular with the masses. To make an impression in politics from cinema involves a great deal of commitment, perseverance, and tenacity. He has embarked on this journey by identifying issues affecting the masses. With the vote bank of the state dissected on issues pertaining to factionalism, regionalism, corruption, and others on similar lines, it makes one wonder if Chiranjeevi’s endeavors in politics would be rewarded?
His role in ‘Tagore’ was praiseworthy which made the crowd cheer for him in large numbers. One would have to wait and watch if he can pull another Tagore and bring about Praja Rajyam in the state?
