Mohan Babu entered the fray for his son Vishnu who is contesting for MAA President. We are told that Mohan Babu has been calling the contestants who have announced contesting and are trying to withdraw their candidature. He reportedly managed to convince Jeevitha to some extent.
Jeevitha who previously announced contesting now says she is yet to take a call. “I am yet to make a decision. As the polls will be held in September, there is a lot of time to announce my decision,” she said. If she really withdraws and supports Vishnu, it will be a big plus for the young hero.
Mohan Babu will also talk to Hema and ask her to withdraw. As many as five artists have already announced their intention of contesting the election. Senior actor CL Narasimha Rao is the latest to join. He will be representing the Telangana artists. Observers say the actual contest will be only between Prakash Raj and Mohan Babu.
Prakash Raj may have a little edge because of the Mega family support. Mohan Babu previously worked as MAA President while Vishnu has worked as a Vice-President.
