Telugu Desam Party MLA from Hindupur and senior actor Nandamuri Balakrishna is going to provide the much-needed entertainment to the voters of Telangana, at least in some pockets.
Balakrishna is learnt to have agreed to campaign for the Telangana TDP in the ensuing assembly elections in the state.
On Thursday, Telangana TDP leaders led by state unit chief L Ramana called on Balakrishna on the sets of NTR biopic at Sarathi Studios and asked him to take part in the campaign.
The TDP leaders informed Balakrishna that the party proposed to promote the latter as star campaigner in the ensuing Assembly elections.
The Hindupur MLA told the leaders that though he was preoccupied with shooting, he would find some time to take part in the electioneering at some point of time or the other.
Most probably, he would campaign for the TDP in some areas in the last week of November, when the final schedule of the shooting of his father’s biopic NTR Kathanayakudu will be completed.
“After the post production works are completed, Balakrishna will dedicate his time to the campaign. He may campaign in TDP strongholds in Greater Hyderabad, Mahbubnagar and Nalgonda districts,” Ramana said.
If Balakrishna campaigns, it will be a great entertainment for voters, who are bored with routine allegations and counter allegations. Having seen his funny speeches in Andhra, the people will get a lot of relief in the tense political atmosphere.
Balakrishna recently participated in the party’s campaign at Madhira assembly constituency in Khammam district a few days ago.
The TDP leaders mobilised huge crowds for his rally and he unveiled a huge statue of his father late N T Rama Rao at Dendukur village.
