Translated tweet of Chiranjeevi reads, “I met AP CM to discuss the situation of Telugu film industry, mainly for its betterment and the survival of the theatres. Some media houses are broadcasting news that I will be sent to the Rajya Sabha which is misleading the issues discussed with Andhra Pradesh CM Shri YS Jagan.”
“I want to stay away from politics and will never come back to politics and the legislature. Please do not broadcast any baseless news. I want to put a full stop to this news and discussions for now,” he added.
