Vijayawada: Yet another Telugu film star is set to enter the politics. Nandamuri Balakrishna, son of Telugu Desam founder-president NT Rama Rao, on Saturday announced that he would contest the election in 2014.

"I will jump into the electoral battle in 2014, apart from campaigning for TDP in Andhra Pradesh," said Balaiah, as he is popularly known.

Balaiah, who acted in several Telugu blockbusters in the career spanning three decades, had campaigned for the TDP when his father was at the helm, and even later when Chandrababu Naidu took over the reins.

Balaiah's daughter is married to Chandrababu's son. "Apart from campaigning for the party candidates, I will directly enter the electoral fray. I will contest from any place that the party decides," he told reporters during a visit to Vijayawada this evening.

Balaiah will unveil the statue of his late father at Ghantasala village in Krishna district tomorrow.
