The recent surprising victory of the Congress party in Telangana’s government formation has stirred discussions, especially regarding the silence of the Telugu film industry. Normally, stars in Telugu cinema have actively supported the ruling BRS party, consistently praising leaders like KCR and KTR.
Their support for BRS initiatives was evident, often seen in their public appearances and tweets. However, the lack of similar enthusiasm from the film industry following the Congress party’s win has caught attention. Apart from producer Bandla Ganesh, few celebrities openly appreciated Revanth Reddy or the Congress party.
While many celebrities claim to avoid direct involvement in politics, some expected at least a gesture of acknowledgment. In the past, if BRS had secured a third term, social media would have been filled with congratulatory messages from top stars. Now, with the Congress’s unexpected victory, the industry awaits how this new government will engage with Telugu Cinema.
Whether the Congress party will garner support or maintain a different approach towards the film fraternity remains to be seen. This shift in political dynamics might reshape the relationship between the Telugu film industry and the government in Telangana.
