Chiranjeevi is not N T Rama Rao: Naidu

Highlight Story

TDP has said the new entrant in politics and Telugu megastar, Chiranjeevi, was "nothing" compared to its founder and legendary star N T Rama Rao when it comes to popularity and ability to woo voters.

"He (Chiranjeevi) is nothing. Nobody can be compared with N T Rama Rao," Telugu Desam Party chief N Chandrababu Naidu said when asked whether he sees Chiranjeevi as an NTR in the making.

Rao, who acted in over 300 films, formed the TDP in March 1982 and the party came into power within nine months of its formation in a dramatic way like his films.

Chiranjeevi, who starred in nearly 150 films, formed his Praja Rajyam Party in August last year and is all set to try his luck in the forthcoming Assembly elections.

"There are so many actors, nobody can be compared with N T Rama Rao. Already he (Chiranjeevi) is losing his place," Naidu told PTI in an interview.

The megastar last week had said he would soon meet President Pratibha Patil to lodge a formal complaint against the "corruption".
