For any person, if he wants to develop in life, someone had to give him the support or some industry/unit should be the reason. However, it is Chiranjeevi, who reached the status of Mega Star in the Telugu film industry without the support of any person and with his individual effort. I have so many examples for this, says, thespian, Padma Vibhushan Dr Akkineni Nageswara Rao. He attended as the chief guest at the unveiling of the book 'Mega Chiranjeevitham - Cine Prasthanam', which was compiled by senior film journalist Pasupuleti Rama Rao.
The programme was held at Prasad Labs recently and several top film personalities including Edida Nageswara Rao, Allu Aravind, KS Rama Rao, Paruchuri Venkateswara Rao, Relangi Narasimha Rao, Ram Charan, Suresh Kondeti and Pasupuleti Chiranjeevi (Rama Rao's son) participated. Padma Vibhushan Dr Akkineni Nageswara Rao unveiled the book and gave the first book to Ram Charan. Later, speaking on the occasion, Akkineni says, If something gets old, everyone forgets it. In this backdrop, such books are necessary to know the history of prominent persons. But these days, no one would be there who doesn't know about Chiranjeevi. Whether such a book is necessary about him or not is a question? Keeping this aside, Rama Rao might have penned this film out of his relationship/closeness with Chiranjeevi. I too took part in this programme due my close friendship with Rama Rao as a journalist and writer.
Though it is me who started dances in Telugu film industry, it is Chiranjeevi who was an expert in dances. His dances have some techniques. Though you keep a most beautiful heroine by his side, people prefer to see him and his dances than the heroine. Such an expert he is. He rose to the position of number one with his dances.
He entered the politics and within a very short period, he became an MP and also a Central Cabinet Minister in a short span. He has the responsibility to develop the tourism sector in India. I wish him to reach many more good places in politics.'
