There has been speculation that Nagarjuna and his daughter-in-law might join politics and contest the polls in the next general elections.
Interestingly, it is being said that Nagarjuna will contest from one constituency in Andhra Pradesh and Samantha from Telangana.
But sources close to Akkineni family have categorically denied that they have no such plans. Neither Nagarjuna nor Samantha will enter politics, at least not in 2019.
It is no secret that Nagarjuna is a close friend of YS Jagan and he maintains cordial relations with Jagan’s family members.
Some years back, there was talk that Nagarjuna did contemplate joining politics on the invitation of late YS Rajasekhara Reddy.
But now, Nagarjuna feels this is not the right time to contest.
On the other hand, Samantha is brand ambassador for Telangana handlooms. Her team has denied reports that she will be contesting for Secunderabad assembly constituency on TRS ticket.
She will continue to be involved in social service and will promote handlooms, but no politics, her team insisted.
