There is no dearth of imaginations for people to make wildest speculations, as long as they are harmless and interesting.
Now, the latest speculation is that the Akkineni family is planning to enter politics in Telangana and that the person who is going to make a political debut is none other than the would-be-daughter-in-law Samantha.
It is learnt Samantha is already interested in politics, which was evident from the way she is moving in the circles of Telangana Rashtra Samithi. Because of her interest in politics, Telangana government made her brand ambassador for Telangana handlooms.
So far so good. The speculations went to the extent of finalising the constituency Samantha would be contesting and who her political rival would be.
According to these rumours, the TRS might field Samantha from Secunderabad constituency, which has sizeable number of Christians. Since Samantha is a Christian, she can attract a good number of votes.
At present, Secunderabad constituency is represented by excise minister T Padma Rao, who would be shifted to Secunderabad parliamentary constituency to facilitate Samantha to contest.
And her rival in the constituency would be senior actress Jayasudha, who had represented it between 2009 and 2014. She had resigned from the Congress and joined the TDP and so, she might prefer to contest from Secunderabad again. Since she is also a Christian, there would be a tough fight between junior and senior actresses.
Well, there is no confirmation from the Akkineni family on these speculations. The family is now busy with the arrangements for marriage between Naga Chaitanya and Samantha. And 2019 is still a long way to go!
