Mohan Babu likely to join BJP: Reports

"Just met the DYNAMIC Hon'ble Prime Minister Narendra Modi JI. If only India could hear his vision clearly and purely we would be in a greater place," tweeted out an elated Lakshmi Manchu earlier on Monday.  Minutes later, news trickled in that Dr. Mohan Babu, Lakshmi and a couple of other Manchus had called on Modi this morning in New Delhi.  

In all likelihood, Mohan Babu will soon be joining the BJP, speculative reports say.  Later on Monday, the senior actor, who is a household name in the Telugu States, is likely to meet with Amit Shah.

Pro-Hindutva sentiments in Manchu family:

To be sure, pro-Hindutva sentiments are not new in the Manchu family.  In 2017, Manchu Vishnu said that he is a Hindutva sympathizer.  "I am a Hindu who is married to a Christian. I strongly believe and practice Hindutva and I am proud to say it. I respect BJP immensely and am a fan of Modiji. Respect!" Vishnu said.  It's believed by many that Mohan Babu's influence on Vishnu has been very high in this regard.  

Lakshmi, in contrast, is not for Hindutva.  The actress once said that she doesn't share her brother's ideological views.
