Megastar Chiranjeevi is leading a delegation of Tollywood celebrities to Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy on Friday on the ticket prices issue. It is emerging that Chiranjeevi is making calls to the Top stars of Tollywood to join him. Buzz is that Mahesh Babu, NTR, and Prabhas are among those who are invited.
This leak has created a stir on social media. Fans of the stars can not digest the fact their demigods have yielded to the pressure and are submitting themselves. They are fuming at Chiranjeevi for exerting pressure on the stars to come to the meeting. If there is any hero who will be impacted by this meeting, it is NTR.
The ramifications of this meeting will be beyond films for NTR. There are no political expectations on any of these stars except him. Chiranjeevi’s political career is gone long back and even Janasena supporters are not taking him seriously. Mahesh Babu is always a fence-sitter when it comes to politics.
Prabhas has no political obligations. But then, it is not the case with NTR. Fans and supporters of NTR always believe he has a long way to go in politics. A majority of them are aligned opposite to Jagan Mohan Reddy. The support base could not even tolerate NTR’s associates like Kodali Nani and Vamsi Vallabhaneni taking Jagan’s side.
NTR is suffering even today because of them. If he himself goes to Jagan, the hell will break loose. We have seen him not thanking Jagan in the NTR district issue recently for the same reason. If he yields for ticket prices issue, he will be in trouble for sure. This one meeting will have implications for many years to come and is also likely to affect his political plans (if any).
He may also lose the support of a section (small/big) in films for the same reason.
It’s time for NTR to take a conscious decision!
