Uddhav Thackeray-led Shiva Sena is also planning to contest in few seats in Telangana and a handful of seats in Seemandhra as junior partner to BJP. Already, Shiva Sena has reportedly held deliberations with RGV. Shiva Sena’s Andhra Pradesh state coordinator Dilip Tamal reluctantly revealed to a leading daily, “I can just say a well-known movie-maker would be our candidate. Please don’t ask me for more.”
Although Varma consistently made it clear that politics is not his game, Shiva Sena top brass is keen to zero in on Star director given that he is a popular figure in Andhra Pradesh as well as in Mumbai. Varma is deeply mulling over the offer. If all goes well, RGV will slug it out with Asaduddin Owaisi for Hyderabad. It’s interesting to watch out the clash of titans. Let’s wait and watch.
