Hyderabad: When most of the young Telugu actors either hate or afraid to talk about politics, Ram Charan Teja, who is next most-adored Tollywood star after Pawan Kalyan and Mahesh Babu, dares to say that he likes it. The young actor, who is basking in the success of his recent release Naayak, even advises youth to like and respect politics. He also asks them to be aware of everything.
Talking to a movie portal, Ram Charan Teja revealed his stand on politics. Unlike other young actors, the Magadheera star says that he has a high regards for politics and politicians. Meanwhile, he adds that every youth should like politics and respect it. They should be aware of everything. He says, "You should have awareness about everything, your country, your government and your MLA."
Ram Charan Teja's father, Megastar Chiranjeevi plunged into politics in 2008. In a bid to bring about a big change in the society, he started his own political party called Praja Rajyam. But in the 2009 general elections, his party won 18 seats in the Andhra Pradesh State Assembly. Recently, Chiru has managed to become Union Minister for Tourism.
However, the experts from the Telugu film industry feel that his words show that he would follow his father's footsteps in the political arena in future. It should be seen whether he will enter politics or not.
