Telugu superstar Allu Arjun was among the early voters on Monday as Telangana and Andhra Pradesh went to the polls in the fourth phase of Lok Sabha Elections.

The 'Pushpa' star, who was booked by Andhra Pradesh Police for allegedly violating the Model Code of Conduct, urged people to cast their votes. "It is the responsibility of all the citizens of the country. Today is the most crucial day for the next 5 years," he told reporters, adding that he was not politically aligned with any party. "I am neutral to all parties," he added after casting his votes at Jubilee Hills, Hyderabad.

Another superstar who cast his votes early on Monday was Jr NTR. The actor, who starred in Oscar-winning 'RRR', was accompanied by his wife to the polling booth in Jubilee Hills. Calling voting a good message to pass on to the coming generation, the actor encouraged everyone to use their right to vote.

Actor Chiranjeevi, along with wife Surekha Konidela, exercised his rights at a polling station in Hyderabad. 

Oscar-winning music composer and Padma Shri awardee, MM Keeravani too voted at a polling booth in Jubilee Hills, Hyderabad. "You have to vote because you are in a democracy," the composer told reporters. 

'RRR' director S S Rajamouli and his son SS Karthikeya also urged people to vote. "Show the country that we are responsible and we do care. Please come out and vote," Rajamouli told reporters. 

Besides the actors, former vice president M Venkaiah Naidu, Telangana BJP president G Kishan Reddy and AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi,  were among the prominent persons who voted. BJP general secretary Bandi Sanjay Kumar and the party candidate from Hyderabad Lok Sabha seat K Madhavi Latha also exercised their franchise.
