Visakhapatnam: Praja Rajyam President K Chiranjeevi on Sunday denied the rumours that he was still eyeing for the Chief Minister’s post.
Talking to media persons at Visakhapatnam airport, Chiranjeevi denied the reports that he was still desperately aspiring to become Chief Minister of the state. “There is no truth in the reports and the media has launched a baseless campaign against me with malicious intentions. I am not at all aspiring to become the Chief Minister of the state,” the actor-turned-politician emphatically said.
Mr Chiranjeevi clarified that he had told the gathering at the audio release of his nephew Allu Arjun’s movie ‘Badrinath’, that he would consider making a comeback to films. “However, my words were misconstrued by media persons who wrote that I was aiming to make a bid for the Chief Minister’s post again. This is not true. The words I had spoken at the audio launch were “If you people wish for me to come back, let us see in the future. I do not want to drop the idea.” I was talking in reference to acting, not politics,” Mr Chiranjeevi said.
