The much-talked-about Movie Artist Association(MAA) issue that had made even the normal public talk about the election issue is inching towards D-day. In four days, the elections will be held and we will get to see who will make it to the MAA President post. Manchu Vishnu and Prakash Raj are contesting for the MAA chief post. They have already announced their panel members and filed their nominations.
The equations in the MAA election episode have changed at once with Manchu hero Vishnu taking advantage by gathering support from various corners of the industry. He is on a spree of meeting the senior members of the industry and seeking their support. The likes of Nandamuri Balakrishna, Rebel Star Krishnam Raju have already extended their support for Manchu Vishnu.
Veteran actor Prakash Raj who seemed to have an advantage by seeking the support of the Mega family, one of the leading families in Tollywood. He has been campaigning for his panel even before the election notification and date were announced. While everyone thought Prakash Raj would march on with an easy win in the MAA elections, Manchu Vishnu entered the scene and changed the whole scenario at once.
Besides meeting and taking support from the senior members of the Tollywood industry for the elections, Manchu Vishnu is also hitting back at the allegations and claims made by his opponent panel led by Prakash Raj. The other day, Manchu Vishnu hit back at his opponent panel members by targeting his family. With a strong tone, the Manchu scion issued a warning that he will not spare anyone who targets his family members.
As another advantage for Manchu Vishnu, the election office had opted for conducting elections in the ballot box. Despite Prakash Raj demanding that the election should be held in EVMs. It is said that the seniors in the industry have supported Vishnu in the episode.
On the other hand, the members of the Tollywood industry like Rajeev Kanakala, Ravi Babu, and others have slammed Prakash Raj for entering into the Tollywood issue and contesting the election that was supposed to be fought by the members of the Tollywood industry.
