Yatras have a special place in Indian politics. The Rath Yatra in Ayodhya changed the status quo in the temple city. Coming to Telugu states the yatras have the power to change the government. Many leaders who went on a padayatra made it to the Chief Minister’s seat. This shows the success rate of the yatra.
Actor-turned-politician Pawan Kalyan is all set to join the list of politicians who started a yatra. However, unlike others, Pawan Kalyan is not doing a padayatra. He will start a bus yatra across the state to meet the people in the state to understand their problems.
A special bus vehicle has been readied and it was named Varahi. Ahead of hitting the road special poojas were performed for the vehicle to seek the blessings of the almighty. Pawan Kalyan preferred Kondagattu Anjaneya Swamy Temple for the pooja. As he is a devoted believer of Lord Hanuman he picked the temple.
He went to the temple as a big convoy and his visit to the temple received a big coverage from the media. Janasenani performed special pooja to the deity there and the priests performed poojas to the Varahi which will be used as the vehicle for the state-wide yatra.
Pawan Kalyan fans reached the Kondagattu town knowing that their matinee idol is arriving at the temple town. They reached the area in big numbers and gave a dream welcome to Pawan Kalyan.
Flowers were thrown at Janasena Chief and a massive garland Gajamala was presented to Pawan Kalyan. Fans brought the Gajamala and gave it to their matinee idol to show their love towards him. The picture and videos of the same are all over social media.
Pawan Kalyan is a massive star and enjoys an unmatchable craze. Despite taking a break from films to focus on politics his craze did not decrease. We can see a Carnival-like situation at theatres when his films arrive.
Pawan Kalyan had lined up a few interesting projects including a Pan-India film. His upcoming period drama Hari Hara Veera Mallu is being made on a Pan-India scale marking his first Pan-India film. He has a project with Harish Shankar and Sujeeth respectively.
