I don’t know the difference between an MLA and MP, says the actor

HYDERABAD: Once Telugu superstar Chiranjeevi or rather his cohorts, tom-tommed to the world that a new political party was imminent anytime, it was cue for other parties too look for star campaigners from the movie land.

While the Telugu Desam Party has already roped in Balakrishna, NTR Junior and his brother Kalyan Ram, there was much speculation on those jumping onto the Congress bandwagon.

Arguably, the most popular hero these days – Mahesh Babu, was touted to be roped in for the ruling party and over imaginative television channels had even churned out stories pitting him against other young stars.

Scotching all such stories circulating around in the political and cinema circles that he will support the Congress, Mahesh Babu said he has no such plans.

“I don’t know the difference between an MLA and an MP. There is no chance of me campaigning at all,” he asserted during the felicitation function for ‘Thums Up, Hunk a Day’ winners here on Sunday.

Interestingly, his father and veteran actor Krishna was elected as an MP from Congress and his uncle is currently the big man in the State Film Development Board.

Looking quite relaxed, Mahesh Babu said that he endorsing the cola brand gives him the chance to meet his fans and the action packed commercial has become quite popular.

Although his recent box office returns has been fantastic, the young man is in no hurry to cash in signing movies left, right and centre.

Mahesh Babu believes in giving a gap between each film. He was open to multi-starrer movies and did the voice over for Pawan Kalyan’s ‘Jalsa’ because of his rapport with its director Trivikram who also gave him the ‘Athadu’. Well, the most eagerly awaited announcement about Mahesh Babu’s next film project will be made only after summer in June.
