Pawan Kalyan was reluctant to act in movies until recently, as he feared for the future of his party, Janasena in Andhra Pradesh. But now, he doesn't have to worry about it.
By forging an alliance with BJP till 2024 elections, he made a masterstroke move. In AP, people are more worried about Capital issue and they are not as against to BJP as they were in 2015.
As his Communist agenda failed to connect with voters, he decided to go and back Narendra Modi, BJP who seems to be on upswing and very stable.
This way, future for Janasena doesn't look bleak immediately and BJP wants to build a trust among AP public as NCBN lost trust and they are slightly agitated about Capital issue, in regards with YCP which the Jagan Government is trying to counter hard.
At this juncture, Pawan Kalyan's move to join BJP or at least have them as an alliance partner means, their party will not have to suffer anymore as much as they did before.
Hence, he is back to films and from February, his film in Telugu will start shooting, with him. From 20th January, regular shoot will start without him.
Dil Raju and Venu Sriram, producer and director of the film respectively, have decided to go for 23rd May date, it seems. The team will announce the date officially, after Pawan Kalyan completes his shoot.
Talks are on to bring Pooja Hegde or other young top actress to play his heroine in the film. Nivetha Thomas, Anjali are playing other important lady lead roles.
