2012 has been quite remarkable for Chiranjeevi. His family members Ram Charan and Pawan Kalyan had scored hits in the form of Racha and Gabbar Singh. Ram Charan was married to Apollo hospitals heiress, Upasana Kamineni in a big event which has caught the attention of the entire nation. Several bigwigs of film and political circles including Amitabh Bachchan, Rajinikanth flew down to Hyderabad to bless the couple.
But the happiness did not last for Chiranjeevi for a even a day. The result of Tirupati bi-election had completely grounded him. Chiranjeevi took the Congress win in this constituency as prestige issue as it is his own seat, which he resigned after he was nominated for Rajya Sabha.
