Giving credence to the rumours making rounds in the state political circles, veteran actor-turned-politician Vijayashanthi is all set to join the BJP bandwagon.
The former MP who already put her papers down bidding adieus to Congress recently is off to Delhi to meet BJP National President JP Nadda on Tuesday.
Sources close to the dynamic leader confirmed that officially joining BJP as the main agenda behind the scheduled meeting. Reports also have it that Vijayashanthi would campaign in support for BJP in the upcoming GHMC polls in Hyderabad.
Speculations of Vijayashanthi joining the BJP gained momentum after she had a meeting with Minister of State, Union Home Minister G Kishan Reddy. The veteran actor staying tight-lipped over the developments and not denying the reports further strengthened the speculations.
It can be noted that Vijayashanthi who earned the name ‘lady Amitabh’ had begun her political career with the BJP, before forming her own party and then switched her loyalties to Congress.
After her brief stint during the 2018 polls, the actor yet again remained inactive and made a comeback into films with Mahesh Babu’s ‘Sarileru Neekevvaru’.
