Unlike his many super-hit films, the political stint of Megastar Chiranjeevi was a huge disaster. Two years and seven months after launching Praja Rajyam Party (PRP) amid much fanfare, Chiru merged it with Congress Party. Now his record is broken by another actor and he is none other than Kannada film Superstar Upendra, who took a plunge into politics last year, shocked everyone in Karnataka when he decided to resign from his own party.
He announced his resignation from the party he formed last year after internal issues and vowed to form a new party soon. The 49-year-old popular actor said, “ I have tendered my resignation to the Karnataka Pragnyavanta Janata Party (KPJP). I will soon register (with the Election Commission) my new party ‘Prajakeeya’ and contest in the upcoming state elections.”
Upendra had taken the plunge into politics with the KPJP, which he formed on 31st October. Meanwhile, speculation was rife that the BJP is holding talks with Upendra with the aim of wooing him to join the saffron party. On the otherside, dismissing the rumours of him joining the BJP, Upendra said that he is only interested in forming his own party
