One of the most famous supporting actors of Sandalwood, Rangayana Raghu, is likely to contest the upcoming Assembly elections. Sources said that the popular actor is seeking a ticket from the JDS party from the Madhugiri constituency.
The party is also keen to get Raghu on board. However the party wants him to contest from Hiriyur sources said. In the end Raghu may contest from one of these two constituencies. The JDS is set to announce its list of candidates later this week when it is holding a huge rally in Benglauru. Raghu's name is likely to be announced as the candidate then.
There are a large number of film actors who are planning to test the election waters this time including Bhavana and Sashikumar. Some of them have joined the campaigning like Malashree, Sadhu Kokila and Aparna. Many are already in active politics for years and contested and won like Jaggesh and Ramya. All of them however joined the national parties. Raghu is one of the few who has shown an interest in the regional party.
