Politicians do everything in their power to earn the good will of the people. They shout, fight and sweat for the welfare of the people (and for votes). But, some of them have gone the extra mile and acted in movies. Unlike NTR, Chiranjeevi and Pawan Kalyan, who were actors first and then politicians whereas these were politicians first and actors next. Here are some of the politicians who cameoed in Telugu movies:

  1. C. Vidyasagar in Collector Garu (1997)

    C. Vidyasagar Rao is a well-respected politician who is currently serving as the Governor of Maharashtra. This Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) politician cameoed in 'Collector Garu'. His role as a corrupt, womanizing Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh gels well with the story. Although it was his first on-screen performance, he handled it exceptionally well.

  2. Motkupalli Narasimhulu in Operation Duryodhana (2007)

    Motkupalli Narasimhulu is Telugu Desam Party (TDP) politician. He cameoed in ‘Operation Duryodhana’ as the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh. He plays a pivotal role in the movie.
  3. Y. S. Rajasekhar Reddy in Kuberulu (2008)

    Y. S. R. cameoed as himself. He watches all antics of Sivaji, the lead actor of this movie. This is his only on-screen appearance.
  4. M. Satyanarayana Rao in Satyameva Jayathe (2009)

    MSR is a well-known Congress politician. He cameoed in 'Satyameva Jayathe' as a rule abiding Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh. This movie is his only appearance on the silver screen. His role as a short-tempered CM was executed well. Also, his diction suited his on-screen persona.
  5. K. Chandrasekhar Rao and many others in Jai Bolo Telangana (2011)

    'Jai Bolo Telangana' was directed to support the creation of Telangana. K. Chandrasekhar Rao, Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) chief, and many other political personalities cameoed in this movie.

The scene where he garlands the statue is iconic.
  6. Chandrababu Naidu in Parama Veera Chakra (2011)

    Nara Chandrababu Naidu is the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh. He cameoed in the movie 'Param Veera Chakra’. His cameo is the perfect definition of blink-and-you-miss-it. He cameos as a clapper in this movie. The guest appearance can be seen at the 13th minute of this movie.
