A month ago, the actor had hinted towards his political plans while addressing a large gathering. He had said he will choose the path of politics “if God willing”.
“God decides what we have to do in life at every phase. Right now, he wants me to be an actor and I’m fulfilling my responsibility. If God willing, I will enter politics tomorrow. If I enter, I will be very truthful and will not entertain people who are in this to make money. I won’t work with such people,” he had said.
