He decided to still be a part of active politics but more on social media. He is doing very less number of films, lately and that too big hero films, mostly.
He is not attending pre-release events or not even in seen as part of any promotional interviews of his films too. Right from Rangasthalam to SLN, we can see that he is content with shooting for his role, completing his dubbing and later, he is breaking ties with the film.
He is still available to act in films but he is not showing interest in promotional activities, as it almost like a part-time job for him as he is full-time invested in politics, it seems.
The actor is a huge part of Sarileru Neekevvaru as main villain but he did not show up for pre-release event. Vijayashanthi, who has an equal role, to him and others got a chance to talk even.
Anyways, the actor seems to be busy in questioning Government with, "Just Asking" tag on social media more than anything else.
