Chiranjeevi's nostalgic trip
Chiranjeevi's nostalgic trip in
The scenic environs with an expanse of the sea and
the adjoining fishponds on the coast in his native West Godavari district
brought out the actor in Praja Rajyam president K. Chiranjeevi in giving a filmy
touch to his visit to the flood-hit areas on Monday.
The matinee idol of yesteryears hopped onto a country boat and tried his hand at
fishing by casting a net in a pond after reached L.B. Charla, a hamlet close to
his ancestral maternal village of Mogaltur.
On his arrival in Mogaltur, Mr. Chiranjeevi turned nostalgic. The mega star
stepped into the house of his maternal grandparents who had sold it off a long
time ago. The unexpected visit by the film star took the occupants of the house
by complete surprise. He spent some time in the tiled house where he was born
and played as a child, relishing the memories of his childhood.
On the Perubalem beach, he turned out to be a sea reveller by getting lost in
the cool breeze for a moment. Later, he sipped a cup of tea in a stall on the
beachfront and gave the owner a tip of Rs. 500.
The PR leader played a volunteer by distributing rice to over 700 families in
Badava village. He went round the flood-hit areas in Narsapur, Mogalturu and
Yalamanchili mandals. He criticised MPs from the State for their alleged failure
to draw “our due share of funds under the Calamity Relief Fund from the Centre”.
