Tollywood megastar Chiranjeevi is on cloud nine following the success of his last release Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy. The actor has been receiving praise from his fans and cine-goers from all over for his actions in the period drama. The latest news related to the actor and his film is, Chiranjeevi and his son Ram Charan has been invited to PMO in Delhi by PM Narendra Modi today.
As per reports, the megastar was in Delhi last week to appeal PM to watch Surender Reddy’s directorial. However, following PM’s busy schedule Chiranjeevi was unable to meet the former.
It is also believed that Chiranjeevi and Ram Charan are invited by PM following Ram’s wife Upasana’s tweet on Sunday. Upasana expressed her view on how disappointed she is with the fact that the South industry was completely ignored and neglected at the recently held event to mark Mahatma Gandhi’s 150th birth anniversary by preaching his words of wisdom and learning. The event saw the presence of Bollywood biggies like Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Kangana Ranaut among many others, but there was no actor to represent the South industry.
Upasana took Instagram to share a pic of PM Modi along with SRK and Aamir along with the caption that read: “Dearest @narendramodi ji. We in the South of INDIA admire you & are Proud to have you as our Prime Minister. With all due respect, we felt that the representation of Leading personalities & cultural icons was limited only to Hindi Artists and The South Film Industry was neglected. I express my feelings with pain & hope it’s taken in the right spirit. Jai Hind.”
