By stating that he would focus on politics from this October, Pawan Kalyan has given way to new speculations about his film career.
Though he maintained that he would do movies if time permits, analysts say he may stop doing them altogether after the release of his current film that is being directed by Trivikram.
One reason why Trivikram's film has been pushed to Sankranthi is because Pawan Kalyan wants to end his career with a blockbuster.
The film has generated huge expectations and the pre-release business is being done at staggering prices. Industry is expecting that it will become a huge blockbuster.
So, one question comes to the fore - what will happen to Mythri Movie Makers' project with Pawan Kalyan?
The production house recently paid a huge advance to Pawan Kalyan and they had agreed to pay a total Rs 35 cr as remuneration.
They have already signed Santosh Srinivas ('Rabhasa' and 'Kandireega') as the director. The production house is hoping to start the movie's shoot from December this year.
This is not the first time that Pawan Kalyan announced stopping doing films. However, this time around, he might be serious, as the election year is barely one-and-half years away.
So, the Jana Sena president cannot spend time making movies, if he wants to be part of active politics.
So, in all probability, PK25 might become his last film.
