After the division of the Telugu states, there were speculations that the film industry might be moving to either Vizag or Vijayawada but nothing actually happened. Hyderabad remained the base for Tollywood so far. Well, in a way now things are set to change with a recent statement.
It was made by none other than megastar Chiranjeevi who announced that he would be moving to Vizag once he retires soon. Revealing the same during the pre-release event of the film Sarrainodu in Vizag, Chiru mentioned his inclination for the port city.
He added that he loves Vizag and its surroundings so much that he would love to live here for the rest of his life once he retires. This suggests that Chiranjeevi and his family may be planning to move to this one and only cosmopolitan city of AP in the near future.
At a time when the Andhra Pradesh CM Chandrababu Naidu is struggling hard to promote Vizag and no one seems to be interested in relocating from Hyderabad, this news from Chiru is definitely music to the ears of AP CM! It has to be seen whether Naidu is going to take this as the cue and work on roping in Chiru.
