"I promise my fans that I will never leave the film industry again," says ‘Waltair Veerayya’ actor 

Megastar Chiranjeevi was bestowed with the ‘Indian Film Personality of the Year Award’ at the 53rd International Film Festival of India (IFFI) in Goa. After receiving the award, the actor expressed his gratitude to the film industry and his fans.

“I thank IFFI and the government of India for giving me this wonderful award and great honour. Few recognitions are special, and this award is one such. I was born into a middle-class family, to humble parents. My fame, name, charisma, all privileges, the invaluable love and affection of my fans and everything, I owe to the film industry. I was born as Konidela Siva Sankara Vara Prasad to my parents and I was re-born as Chiranjeevi in the film industry,” he said in his speech.’

Chiru, also spoke about his earlier decision to give quit acting to pursue his political aspirations and vowed not to repeat it in his life. “I have been in the film industry for 45 years. In these four and half decades, I spent a decade in politics. For some reason, I had to return to the film industry. At that time, I was skeptical about how people will receive me. (I wondered) whether they would shower the same kind of love and affection on me. I was having my doubts because the generation has changed. The amount of love and affection and my position in their hearts remained intact, in fact, they have doubled, to my surprise. That’s the bonding I have with my fans. I promise my fans that I will never (again) leave the film industry.”

The 67-year-old actor concluded by saying, “I am a slave to the love of Telugu film fans around the world. It’s because of that love I’m here today and am being honoured with such awards. I will remain grateful for your love."

On the work front, Chiranjeevi is gearing up for the release of his highly anticipated film Waltair Veerayya co-starring Shruti Haasan and Mass Maharaja Ravi Teja. Slated to hit the big screens on Sankranti 2023, the makers recently released the first single from the movie titled ‘Boss Party’. Composed by Devi Sri Prasad the song is currently ruling the chart-busters.
