Sankranthi cinema race has got huge competition ever before. Adding much buzz, three big star movies including two stars of same Nandamuri clan slugging it out at the Box Office, naturally, tempers are running high. The new twist in the tale is the political angle to the whole story. While TDP is going all out for Balayya’s ‘Dictator’ and leaving no stone unturned to make it a blockbuster this festival, Opposition YSR Congress said to be giving strategic support to NTR’s Nannaku Prematho. Since NTR’s close aide and Gudivada MLA Kodali Nani is sailing with YSRCP, Nani along with his cadre is working towards making Nannaku Prematho big hit this Sankranthi. Also inside talk is that YSRCP took a line that it should support NTR’s film this festival and even told its leaders, party workers the same.Politics and films are interconnected. This was already proved several times before. And with the clash of Balayya and NTR films, involvement of politics in films have come out to the fore yet again. It needs to be seen who will have one-upmanship on the other. Definitely, an interesting battle to watch out for.
