Acting: Chiru in a dilemma

Special Correspondent

HYDERABAD: Praja Rajyam president K. Chiranjeevi appears to be caught in a dilemma on resuming acting.

When media persons quizzed him about it in the Assembly lobbies on Friday, the actor-turned-politician thought for a while and enquired whether NTR faced the arc lights as Chief Minister. Media persons told him that NTR did make ‘Brahmarishi Vishwamitra', Chiranjeevi took long pause but did not respond.

In a lighter vein he said there were bigger actors in the Assembly than him. “I cannot match them. I cannot act without make up. But they can do it with ease.”

Asked for his reaction to NTR's comment that his son-in-law and TDP chief N. Chandrababu Naidu was a bigger actor than him, Chiranjeevi excused himself folding his hands and smiling.
