Allu Arjun says he is not affiliated with any political party. 'I remain neutral'

Says he supports his people, regardless of their political affiliations


Popular Telugu actor Allu Arjun on Tuesday cleared the air on his political affiliation, days after he was booked for allegedly violating the Model Code of Conduct in the ongoing Lok Sabha elections.

The actor said he went to the Nandyal district to support his friend and YSRCP constituency candidate S. Ravi Chandra Kishore Reddy, but clarified that he is not affiliated to any political party.

Allu Arjun said he remains neutral and supports "my people" including Janasena Party founder and his uncle actor-politician 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," Allu Arjun said in a statement.

"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.

Allu Arjun had thanked the people of Nandyal for a "warm reception" in a post on X.

"Thank you, Silpa Ravi Reddy (YSRCP candidate) garu, for the hospitality. Wishing you the very best in the elections and beyond. You have my unwavering love and support," he had posted.

The Andhra Pradesh Police booked a case against the actor on Saturday under IPC Section 188 after he was seen waving to a large crowd from a balcony with the YSRCP candidate.
