Minister to play CM in film

It was a casting coup of sorts as director Harishchandra Rao roped in minister E. Pratap Reddy to play the part of a chief minister in his untitled Telugu film in which Jagapathi Babu plays the lead.

“The story revolves around an upright CM and his determination to set things right,” said Pratap Reddy, after canning his first shot.

“He eradicates the evil doers.” After late YSR and BJP leader Vidyasagar Rao, Reddy is the third politician from the state to turn to the silver screen.
