A particular news item went almost unnoticed this week. It was the appearance of YS Jaganmohan Reddy at Mohan Babu's residence in Hyderabad. In fact, after Jagan called on Mohan Babu, whose son married the daughter of Jagan's father's uncle, it triggered a speculation that the veteran actor might join the YSR Congress Party sooner or later.
Though none can establish that Babu intends to join the Party and it is too early days to presume things. Jagan's aides have sought to delink the visit from politics.
The fact that Mohan Babu has not been closely associated with any political party for many years now doesn't not lend credence to the assumption that he may like to become a Jagan man in politics, say political observers.
But the fact remains that the 2014 elections will see a lot of star factor in the campaigning stage.
