TDP MP Galla Jayadev, who initiated the debate on the no-confidence motion in the Lok Sabha on Friday, mentioned Telugu blockbuster Bharat Ane Nenu of actor Mahesh Babu. Bharat Ane Nenu is a blockbuster that had Mahesh as an idealistic chief minister who delivers on his promises. The industrialist-politician gave a short summary of the Telugu film to stress the point before Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government that “promises should be kept”.
“The latest Telugu blockbuster ‘Bharat Ane Nenu’ which means ‘I Bharat’ is a story about a young NRI who returns to India after his father, who is a chief minister, dies suddenly. Bharat enters politics reluctantly and becomes a young, dynamic and beloved chief minister,” said the Guntur MP who is also Mahesh’s brother-in-law.
“The recurring theme in this movie is about trust and his mother’s advice Bharat keeps recalling. A promise is a promise. If a man makes a promise and does not keep it, he does not have the right to call himself a man. It was a blockbuster because the general mood of people reflects well in this film. People are tired of empty assurances and unfulfilled commitments,” he said.
Jayadev, whose family owns Amara Raja Group, is the son-in-law of veteran Telugu actor Krishna, father of Mahesh Babu,reported IANS. One of the wealthiest MPs, Jayadev had declared assets worth Rs 683 crore during 2014 elections.
