Jayaprada: 'I Will Support Balakrishna'

The glamour star of yesteryears and a fading politician Jayaprada wants to get back to Andhra Pradesh politics. After having a darshan of Lord Balaji at Tirumala on the occasion of her birthday on Tuesday, she expressed her desire to get back to the state politics.

However, it is not clear whether she would join YSR Congress Party or her parent organization Telugu Desam Party where she began her political journey in 1994.

With her stint in Uttar Pradesh politics almost coming to end, the veteran star of yester years want to explore any new possibilities in Telugu political firmament once again. She said that she would support her “good friend” Nandamuri Balakrishna if he were to contest the Assembly elections. She also praised Chandrababu Naidu’s 9-year rule as having benefited the state.

It is not clear whether it was a hint about her future career choice. In fact, she had quit TDP because of her differences with Chandrababu in the 1990s. Subsequently, she rose in Uttar Pradesh politics with the help of former Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh. However, Amar Singh's party suffered complete rout in the recent Assembly polls in UP.
