Jr NTR was one among the many stars to cast their vote in Hyderabad as part of the ongoing Telangana Assembly elections. Several videos of the actor arriving at the polling booth to vote have gone viral on social media. He is seen with his wife Lakshmi Pranathi standing in a queue, waiting patiently for his turn. In one of the clips going viral, he is also seen asking fans to stop gawking at him and vote instead. In the clip, he asks fans in Telugu, “Miru andharu ikkade untaraa? Votelu veyyara poyyi miru? [Will you all stand here like this? Won't you cast you vote?]” When the fans said they would vote after him, he asked them to not do so and to vote instead.
