Chiranjeevi's 150th film bears brunt of his political stint

Hyderabad, Jun 29: Praja Rajyam chief Chiranjeevi, it seems has brought down curtains on his hugely successful career as an actor. The actor-turned politician, who has been donning the grease paint for nearly three decades, himself made the announcement at Hyderabad.

On a query from a spectator about his proposed 150th film, at the launch of UTV"s Action Telugu movie channel, Chiranjeevi said, "Since I am busy with politics, it would not be appropriate for me to don the grease paint again. My son Charan is there to fill the gap."

When asked whether he would prefer the role of a politician or a chief minister in his future ventures as an actor, the Telugu megastar said, "Why in cinema? People feel I can become the chief minister in real life itself."

It can be recalled that the Telugu actor, while launching his political party in August 2008 had hinted at continuing to act in films and even in Dec 2010 had announced that he would don the grease paint once again for his 150th film.

The film was to be produced by his actor-son Ram Charan Tej. However, it seems that his fans might have to wait longer than expected to watch him in action.

The Praja Rajyam party floated by Chiranjeevi, was not off to the flying start that was expected of it, but nevertheless it still managed to eat into the votebanks of other political parties. And now that he has decided to merge his party with the Congress and is busy completing all the formalities, the megastar, might soon be seen as a real life chief minister than a reel life one.
