Vijayashanthi was the leading lady in Tollywood in the eighties. She played the title role in many films and was even known as lady Amitabh. She is now dabbling in politics. She is the founder president of the Talli Telangana party.
Vijayashanthi made a big splash by championing the cause o separate Telangana. But her interest seems to have slowly waned out as she is now not taking much interest in the activities of her party.
The electricity department issued a notice to Vijayashanthi recently to cough up the dues she owes to it or face disconnection. Vijayashanthi issued a cheque for bout 25,000 but the cheque bounced.
The authorities have asked her to pay the money immediately or else they would cut the power supply to her house. Vijayashanthi is now staying in a rented house in the MLA’s colony in Banjara Hills in Hyderabad.
