Fresh from the success of her husband Rajasekhar’s latest film Garuda Vega, actress-turned-producer Jeevitha is said to be trying to make a fresh innings in politics.
Of late, Jeevitha, who is presently a member of the Censor Board of Film Certification, has been inclining towards the ruling Telugu Desam Party in Andhra Pradesh.
She was also made the jury chairman of Nandi awards for 2015. Following that, she has been showering praises on TDP president and Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu.
She recently met Naidu along with several film industry representatives and sought his cooperation in expansion of Telugu film industry to Andhra Pradesh – whether it is to Visakhapatnam or Amaravati.
Subsequently, she reportedly sent feelers to Naidu that she is willing to join the TDP, if given a chance. She even told the media the same at an interaction a couple of days ago.
However, the question is whether Jeevitha would be lucky in politics at least in TDP.
She and her husband tried their luck in the Congress party in the past and later joined the YSR Congress party. But they did not continue in YSRC for a long time because of ego problems. After that, they kept away from politics for the last few years.
Now, Jeevitha, if not Rajasekhar, wants to get back into active politics by joining the TDP. But party sources say she might not get any good post or position in the TDP, as there are too many contenders.
Everybody knows how Naidu is expert in use-and-throw politics and he feels there is no use of the leaders, he would not entertain them.
And there is no guarantee that the TDP will come to power again in the next elections. So, will Jeevitha end up in a losing party?
