Film star and Hindupur MLA Nandamuri Balakrishna was in news until a few weeks ago for being one of those few lucky ones to be given promotion as cabinet ministers by AP CM Nara Chandrababu Naidu.
However, the buzz surrounding Balayya's ministerial chances fizzed out of late. As Chandrababu's plan to expand his cabinet after the municipal polls is fast approaching, Balayya's latest 'Kalasarpa Dosha Nivarana' puja is raising a few eyebrows.
Yesterday, Balayya and his wife Vasundhara Devi offered special prayers under the supervision of famous astrologer Parankusam Venu Swamy at an ashram. Apparently, the 'Kalasarpa Dosha Nivarana' puja is offered by only those who desire 'rise in power' and not common people.
The media circles are abuzz with reports that Balayya will be totally devoting his time to politics soon after his prestigious 100th movie Gautamiputra Satakarni hits the screens for next Sankranthi. Let's wait and see if Balayya's efforts will pay off eventually.
