Telugu Desam Party used to have close ties with Tollywood. NTR’s entry to politics made that relation strong. NTR’s TDP party got good support from many tollywood actors in those days.NTR took support of tollywood actors for TDP’s promotions. Many actors joined TDP and even got seats. But a TDP MLC’s recent comment brought a huge dent on the close relation between TDP and tollywood. MLC’s severe comments on Telugu movie industry made the tollywood furious over TDP. Tollywood representatives replied “TDP forgetting the protests made by Tollywood actors in Vijayawada and making severe comments”.
TDP’s supporting news channel added fuel to this by making serious comments over tollywood. MAA association staged protest in name of ” Maa Telugu Film Industry Protest”. MAA said ” We are not going to tolerate anymore such non-sense, we dont take things lightly . If Dasari Narayana Rao is alive we wont be facing such consequences today”. MAA decided not give any support to TDP from here on.
“NTR himself departed from Chandrababu still we respected TDP as it is started by NTR. From now our support will be with Jagan ” MAA continued.Many tollywood actors are ready to support the YCP. Superstar Krishna is always against TDP, his son’s new movie “Bharat Ane Nenu” is having close resemblence to YCP’s Jagan’s life. Akkineni Nagarjuna is a close friend of Jagan, theres a rumor that he may get a parliament ticket from Guntur.
TDP’s close aid Ramanaidu’s family is also not much active in supporting TDP. And Manchu Mohanbabu became a family member after his son Vishnu’s marriage . Mohanbabu’s family is in full support to YCP, no doubt in that.
Coming to NTR’s family, his son Harikrishna is indirectly opposing Chandrababu Naidu. Harikrishna didnt get any importance in TDP made his stay away from TDP. Jr.NTR’s close friend Kodali Nani joined YCP from TDP. Rumors says that YCP may get support from Jr.NTR.MLC Rajendra Prasad loose tongue costed TDP alot
