Can movie stars become efficient CMs?South Indian states are popular to have movie legends with huge fan following slowly testing waters in politics. Once, they are past their peak as a lead actor, many start to nurture political ambitions.
Having a fan(vote) base is one thing but running a state is entirely different. It needs skill, tact, diplomacy, awareness of current issues and inter-state issues etc. One can always sit in the top post and let the other do the work on behalf of them, but it doesn't truly help the state. Few megastars have jumped in, few have refused to join the bandwagon. Dr. Rajkumar, legendary Kannada film personality and a fatherly figure shunned away from politics.
Let us not discuss about individuals but about their functioning as the CM of a state.
