Mahesh Babu’s brother-in-law Jayadev Galla is TDP’s MP from Guntur. Recently,
Mahesh’s uncle Adiseshagiri Rao quit YSRCP and joined the TDP. Meanwhile this
led to several rumors that Mahesh will be canvassing for the TDP in the
upcoming general elections in Andhra Pradesh.
Reportedly Mahesh is
silent as usual and his wife Namrata has clarified the Superstar’s political
affiliations in a latest interview with national English daily. Namrata said “Her
husband respects what Naidu has done for the state, but the progress of both
Andhra Pradesh and Telangana is a matter of great pride for him. Further just
because he is seen with Naidu, it doesn’t make him a political figure”. Namrata
said, “Mahesh is not campaigning for any political party. Nor does he intend
to contest any elections or pursue any kind of political ambitions. He barely
says a few words to me, where will he make big speeches on public platforms?.
He is the most apolitical person she knew.”
Moreover calling her
husband a thorough professional and a family man, Namrata said that Mahesh has
no time for politics or anything apart from shooting for his films. Namrata
revealed “And any free time he has is family time. He doesn’t even step
out to meet friends”.
