Never in the history of Telugu cinema, fans of arch rivals, have joined hands but this 2014 elections seems to have burnt the bridges between two film families. For the last few decades, Chiranjeevi and Balakrishna were considered arch rivals and Chiru fans and Nandamuri fans were always at loggerheads in debating over box office records and flops of respective stars.

Later, Pawan also became a rival for Balakrishna and Jr NTR and Nandamuri fans used to ridicule the flops of Pawan and felt that jr NTR was their new-generation star. But all of sudden, Pawan changed these equations and jumped into Nandamuri bandwagon to campaign for TDP and fans of Nandamuri fans are in a dilemma to clap or not for the speeches of their rival star. ‘Its difficult for a die-hard Nandamuri fan to clap for the star from the rival family, since till few weeks ago, we considered Pawan as our rival’ says a fan.

Even the separation of Chiru and Pawan, hasn’t cut much ice, with the fans, since Pawan carries a following from Chiru’s camp. ‘We can’t go all out to support TDP since they ridiculed and defamed Chiru for the last 5 years’ says Chiru fan. So, brothers political rivalry, has pushed brother to the rival camp, but fans couldn’t shift their loyalties overnight to TDP. What an irony?
