Chiranjeevi`s son buys polo team

Hyderabad: Perhaps inspired by Bollywood stars who own IPL teams, young Telugu hero Ram Charan, son of actor-turned-politician Chiranjeevi, has bought a polo team.

It is not a commercial venture though, he says, but a means to pursue his passion -- horse riding.

Charan is supported in this endeavour by Upasana Kamineni, whom he is going to marry.

Upasana -- grand-daughter of Apollo Hospitals head Pratap C Reddy -- is interested in polo, Charan told reporters here today.

Charan, who has blockbusters like "Magadheera" and "Chiruta" under his belt, introduced the four-member polo team and unveiled its logo today. It would participate in tournaments in Hyderabad and elsewhere.

"Upasana is supporting me. P C Reddy has been in racing for long. This is not like IPL cricket. You have money in IPL. On the contrary, you lose money here," he said, replying to a query.

Talking about personal life, he said his engagement to Upasana was likely to take place during this year.

Upasana`s forefathers were rulers of Domakonda Samsthan in Nizamabad district and one of the ceremonies was likely to take place in the ancient fort in the village, Charan said.
