Everybody knew that Pawan Kalyan had a good relationship with the Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The PM had met him privately before the last state elections in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. Something seems to have soured between them now.
In continuation with his Swach Bharath campaign the PM with the intention of enlisting top film personalities had written to several film stars requesting them to throw their weight behind the programme on a national scale. Anil Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Mohan Lal, SS Rajamouli, Mohan Babu, Young Rebel star Prabhas and Mahesh Babu were all recipients of the letter from the Honorable Prime Minister. The stunning omission from that list was the name of Pawan Kalyan. This has become a hot topic for discussion among political circles who quickly read between the lines to contend that perhaps the hero is not really as close to the PM as was thought. Some circles say that though the hero has declared his intentions to contest the elections in 2019 he is yet to declare which side he is going to take which is why the PM has not sent him that letter.
While many perceive this to be a snub for Pawan Kalyan, what the hero himself thinks is not immediately known.
