‘King’ faces financial woes
When someone is addressed as ‘King’ in Tollywood, everyone thinks of Akkineni Nagarjuna. Dubbed as Tollywood Manmadhudu by fans, Nagarjuna is not only an actor but a producer too. He is good with finances. Hence, he will not face any financial troubles. We are not talking about ‘King’ Nagarjuna, but the one we are mentioning is acquainted with Telugu audience and is known as ‘King.’ This King who tried his best to settle his son as a hero miserably failed. He already faced losses in cinema industry due to his son and also in politics.
By the way, did you identify who he is? He is none other than ‘dialogue king’ Sai Kumar. The man who lent his voice to heroes like Rajasekhar, Suman, and others is also known to Telugu audience as an actor. Not only in Telugu, he has a good following in Karnataka too. Who can forget his performance as a police officer in the ‘Police Story’? Sai Kumar’s brother is a popular villain in Kannada films. He acted in many Telugu films also.
It may be recalled that Sai Kumar contested on Bharatiya Janata Party ticket in the recent Karnataka assembly elections. In the earlier assembly elections, he contested and lost. Even this time, lady luck did not smile at him. Sai Kumar appeared enthusiastic during the campaign as he was sure of his win. However, the voters of Bagepalli did not take Sai Kumar seriously.
Sai Kumar could not match his rivals in any round of the counting. BJP was limited to a fourth place in Bagepally. Congress candidate won here. Sai Kumar who wanted to enter the assembly as an MLA, referred to Special Status to AP many times as part of his campaign.
Sai Kumar criticized TDP chief, AP Chief Minister Naidu, Janasena chief Pawan Kalyan, actor Prakash Raj, and TDP MLA and actor Balakrishna during the campaign. It is learned that he has spent heavily during elections and now is in debts.
