It is now certain that Mahesh Kathi's political ambitions are buried for ever. Not many know that Kathi Mahesh was looking at an active political career. He wanted to contest from some constituency in Chittoor and was approaching various political parties.
At one stage, when he was taking on Pawan Kalyan and his friend Poonam Kaur, many thought he would contest on the TDP ticket. He was seen as a counter to Pawan Kalyan. In the meanwhile, he also made common cause with Gujaratâ€™s Dalit MLA Jignesh Mevani. He met him when Mevani came to Hyderabad recently. He was also seen moving closely with Madiga groups, including IPS officer Praveen Kumar. Later, it was rumoured that he had approached the YSRCP in Chittoor district.
But, now that he is embroiled in an unwanted crisis involving Lord Ram, no party wants to touch him. He has unnecessarily made comments on Lord Ram and any party that gives him ticket will have to face the Hindu anger. So, Kathi Mahesh lost both his TV career, his career as a film critic and also his political career.
