Chiru’s 150th Film – A 2014 Political Stunt?

Posted : December 3, 2013 at 9:23 pm IST by ManaTelugu

The news of Megastar Chiranjeevi’s comeback into films and his 150th appearance on silver screen had created huge applause a week back not just on twitter, but also in all corners of Tollywood. This grapevine is a refreshing treat for Mega fans, but it is being a stunt for observers who are watching it from another perspective.

At a time when majority sections from Seemandhra are blasting Chiranjeevi for his lack of skills in handling the bifurcation issue, and rating him as a failure who failed to stop division of state, this 150th film news has raised new hopes. All of a sudden, people have forgotten the political issues, and started raving a lot about this magnum opus project. Also some speculations like director Shankar handling the movie, and some saying that VV Vinayak is entrusted with the job of preparing story have created ripples everywhere. Adding more, it is also reported on media that Charan is setting up his production house, which will be led by his wife Upasna. Looking at all these developments, cine lovers are just floating above the clouds imagining the comeback of Chiranjeevi. But analysts say that there is a chance of all this ending up as a stunt also.

If we look closely, Chiranjeevi got no time before the elections to start up his 150th project. At the least, he is not in a position even to attend the audio launches of Mega heroes too. In that case, this film will not start until the whole situation changes in AP, until the dark clouds on future of Seemandhra get cleared. Before that, Chiru will not find ideal time to start his flick, and will also feel upshots from certain sections of state, say analysts. So, our celebrated matinee idol may not take off his 150th project any soon, so any news related to it will not be materializing. Only they all end up as political stunts that can give mileage to Chiranjeevi in 2014 elections, if he loves to come back and contest.

Anyway, truth is always bitter, so all the unpredicted will also happen sometimes, and Chiru may start his 150th film pushing everything aside. Let us expect the unexpected too!
