I won’t just appoint my family for the role. I will first discuss the matter with higher officials: K. MegaStar Chiranjeevi
Andhra Pradesh has been lucky in the tourism department. Other states had to hire actors to promote local tourism. AP, however, went one step ahead and got the biggest star to head the ministry itself.
But, despite his very presence, will Chiranjeevi rope in a movie star to promote AP Tourism? If yes, who exactly? Just like how Mamata Banerjee roped in Shah Rukh Khan to promote Bengal and the Big B was asked to promote Gujarat, the big question on everyone’s minds is will Chiru get his son Charan and nephew Allu Arjun to become brand ambassadors of the state?
Chiranjeevi says, “I won’t just appoint my family for the role. I will first discuss the matter with officials.”
And on a lighter note he asked, “Why Charan and Bunny? Wouldn’t I make a good brand ambassador?”
The newly-appointed minister also wants to conduct a survey and see which South star would be perfect for the role. He also reveals that film personalities Ramesh Sippy, Shatrughan Sinha, Pahlaj Nihalani and even Suresh Babu met him and and gave him several valuable ideas.
“Soon after the Winter Session of Parliament, I shall be convening a meeting with the film fraternity, and seek their suggestions and participation in a suitable manner, to help promote tourism in India,” he says.
