On Wednesday, during an event to celebrate the fourth anniversary of Jana Sena’s formation, actor-turned-politician Pawan Kalyan interacted with his supporters and opened up about his political journey. Speaking about his decision to enter politics, he said that he took the plunge in order to serve the people of his country and made it clear that his only identity is that he is an Indian. The ‘Power Star’ also said that he has entered politics for life.
“I am an Indian first and an Indian last. My country calls me to serve and I will serve. The nation needs committed individuals to come to the fore. Instead of asking others to do it, I decided to walk that path myself. My political journey is a lifelong journey. I did not enter politics to grab political opportunity but to serve society and guard the public’s interest. I am a man for the people, of the people and by the people,” he added
These are some strong words and could create a buzz in the political circles. It will be worth watching if PK’s enthusiasm translates to political success.
Interestingly, sometime ago, PK had said his fans made him a star and he will try to repay them through his political endeavours.
“I ’ve always wanted to do something good and give back to the society. I believe I’m able to achieve that through cinema and politics. When I started my career, I told my family I’d do 10-12 films. Post Kushi, I thought of doing five more films and calling it quits because I wanted to serve our nation. But, the love of my fans has made me do 25 films,” he had added.
On the work front, he was last seen in Agnyaathavaasi which bombed at the box office and failed to impress critics.
