New Delhi: Chiranjeevi is honoured with a special recognition by the central government. Union Information and Broadcasting Minister Anurag Thakur has announced that Chiranjeevi will be selected as the proud person of the Indian film industry for the year 2022.
The megastar will receive the Indian Film Personality of the Year-2022 award at the 53rd International Film Festival in Goa. The film festival celebrations have already started in Goa in a grand manner and will be held till 28th of this month.
Union Minister Anurag Thakur congratulated Chiranjeevi for being selected for this award. He praised Chiranjeevi, who has been an actor in the film industry for almost four decades and has acted in 150 films and is entertaining crores of fans with his amazing performance. Chiranjeevi is hailed as the most popular person in the Telugu film industry.
Meanwhile, the organizers said that 280 films from 79 countries will be screened in these celebrations.
Addressing the alumni meeting of Erramilli Narayana Murthy College here on Sunday, Chiranjeevi said politics was a different ball game. It is one place where one should make comments against others and should have the verve and nerve to absorb the remarks made by others. In politics people make all kinds of comments relevant and irrelevant and they go to any extent.
It is difficult for those who are not thick skinned to digest them and continue in politics. Chiranjeevi said during his brief stint in politics he realised that he was not fit for such conditions and decided to get back to the film industry.
But he said his brother Pawan was not a person who would give up anything so easily. “He is one who keeps moving ahead if he takes a decision. He had entered politics with a firm decision to stay there and he not only takes criticism and comments but can also retort in an equally powerful manner,” Chiru said.
He said he was sure that this quality of Pawan would take him to great heights in politics and one day he would be at the helm of affairs.
