Young Tiger NTR has displayed perfect political maturity yet again. Despite huge pressure from Chiranjeevi, NTR resisted it and did not board the flight to Vijayawada. There are reports that there is pressure from the Government side as well to create a rift in the TDP camp but that did not work.
NTR is well aware that he has to keep the distance from TDP’s political rivals if he hopes of claiming Nandamuri legacy and TDP leadership in the future. Even if political ambitions are not calculated, it is important that he stays away since a large chunk of his film fans are TDP supporters and such a move will hurt them big time.
This is the second such incident in recent times where NTR displayed utmost caution. There was immense pressure from YSR Congress media and social media teams a few days ago to come out and thank the Government for naming Vijayawada district after NTR. He was attacked mercilessly. But NTR took the same stance as NTR and other Nandamuri family members.
Politics and NTR are inseparable. No other star who took the flight was or will be judged for that. But NTR will have to face scrutiny every time some important political event related to films, family, and politics happens. But then, that is his strength and it comes with baggage sometimes.
