The director who egged on Vani Viswanath
Thursday, September 14, 2017 • Telugu Comments

It was recently reported that the Telugu Desam Party is keen on pitting yesteryear screen beauty Vani Viswanath against YSRCP's firebrand leader, Roja.  Both have a filmi background and pan-AP popularity (in different degrees, though) going for them.  And the commentators are going to talk about their glam appeal while assessing their winnability in 2019.

Vani Viswanath has revealed that her 'Jaya Janaki Nayaka' director Boyapati Srinu egged her on to join the TDP.  It's not like it's entirely his prodding.  

Vani, it seems, has always toyed with the idea of becoming a politician in the mind of her minds.  Reason?  Her astrologer-father had read her future even as a child.  It was he who first told her that she would become an actress, Vani says.  It was he who first told her that she would become a politician as well.  As destiny would have it, the Malayali lady, who hadn't been in touch with the Telugu cine industry for many years till recently, is now in the TDP's lap.  

She has said that she respects the Telugu culture and language.  Currently residing in Chennai, she has been married to Baburaj, a Malayalam actor, and is blessed with two children.  Let's see if the 46-year-old yesteryear actress turns out to be TDP's 'Action Queen', and not just Mollywood's!
