nandamuri taraka ramarao is the only hero of tollywood to have held the highest rank in the state to become the CM of AP. And some more stars and technicians served as state ministers and MLA cadres.
However, when it comes to center, only a few of the tollywood bigwigs held the positions of MPs and very few, served as central ministers. Actors such as Kongara Jaggayya, Krishna, Krishnamraju, Dasari Narayana Rao etc.discharged their duties as MPs of either Rajyasabha or Lok Sabha. Among their list, Krishnamraju served as minister of state for external affairs in Vajpayi government. On the other hand, Dasari Narayana Rao served as minister of state in ministry of coal in Congress government.
As Chiranjeevi is going to be served as minister of state in Tourism with independent charge, his cadre is bigger than Dasari and Krishnamraju. In short, Chiranjeevi is the only person from tollywood to have got the highest rank in center.
