Actor-turned-politician Pawan Kalyan was the chief guest at the birthday celebrations of elder brother Chiranjeevi, held in Hyderabad on Wednesday.
Speaking on the occasion, he revealed that his brother Chiranjeevi has been the biggest inspiration for him in many ways.
“Recently, many students committed suicide after they failed in their Class X examinations. Even I went into a similar depression when I failed in Intermediate and wanted to commit suicide with my brother’s licensed pistol. But he pacified me and told me about life,” he revealed, adding that as a teenager, he would fly into a rage whenever anyone spoke against India.
“But he advised me to stay calm,” said Pawan, who recalled another instance when he wanted to settle down permanently in Tirupati. “Once again, my brother (Chiru) came to my rescue and asked me to serve the people, which is another form of devotion,” he revealed, acknowledging that he was lucky to have done the voiceover for his brother’s film, Sye Raa. “My dream was to see my brother in a role like freedom fighter Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy. I couldn’t do a film like that, but my nephew Ram Charan dared to produce a film like this,” he said, while praising director Surender Reddy too.
