Watch the tremendous fan following for Mega Star Chiranjeevi, when he was elected as MLA from Tirupati Assembly Constituency in 2009, on his own Praja Rajyam Party (PRP) ticket. However, Chiranjeevi lost the same election, in Pallakollu of West Godavari district. Surprisingly, Chiranjeevi merged his PRP with Congress in February, 2011. A year later, he was elected to Rajya Sabha (RS). The same year, in October, he became Union minister of state (independent charge), for Tourism. He did not contest in 2014 elections, though he campaigned for the Congress.
