HYDERABAD, May 14: Days after he was booked for allegedly violating the Model Code of Conduct in the run-up to Lok Sabha polls, popular Telugu actor Allu Arjun on Tuesday said he went to the Nandyal district to support his friend and YSRCP constituency candidate S Ravi Chandra Kishore Reddy but isn’t affiliated to any political party.

On Saturday, the “Pushpa” star waved to a large crowd from a balcony with the YSRCP candidate and also posted a message on X in his favour.

The Andhra Pradesh Police booked a case against the “Pushpa: The Rise” star on Saturday under IPC Section 188 the same day.

Arjun said he remains neutral and supports “my people” including Janasena Party founder and actor-uncle Pawan Kalyan, regardless of their political affiliations. “Firstly, I want to clarify that I’m not affiliated with any political party. I remain neutral and support my people, regardless of their political affiliations. This includes my uncle Pawan Kalyan, whom I’ll always stand by, along with my friend Ravi and my father-in-law, Mr. Reddy,” the actor said in a statement.

The National Award winner, who cast his vote in Hyderabad on Monday, said he went to Nandyal district to support his friend Ravi.

“I made a promise to my friend, Mr. Ravi, to support him, but I couldn’t fulfill it last time. To keep my word, this time I went to Nandyal to support him,” he further said.
