Sivaji Sontineni, a renowned Telugu actor, takes center stage in the Bigg Boss house. Sivaji is a versatile personality, best known for his exceptional dubbing skills, active involvement in politics, and appearances in Telugu films. His name certainly piques curiosity.
Hailing from Narsarsopet in the Guntur district, Sivaji commenced his career as an editor at Gemini TV. However, destiny had different plans for him as he soon received an opportunity to act in a TV serial. This fortuitous chance paved his way into the Telugu film industry, where he initially portrayed supporting roles in significant movies like “Kushi” and “Indra.”
Sivaji also made a name for himself as a proficient dubbing artist, lending his voice to Nithiin’s character early in the latter’s career. He continued to expand his horizons by taking on secondary hero roles in other films. His breakthrough as a solo hero came with the release of the movie “Missamma” in 2003.
Beyond his film career, Sivaji emerged as a staunch supporter of various political causes, particularly in the fight to preserve the unity of Andhra Pradesh. Despite being affiliated with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), he even embarked on a hunger strike to hold the previous Congress administration accountable for their promise of granting special status to Andhra Pradesh after its bifurcation.
Sivaji’s stance on the Telugu Desam Party (TDP), which he initially criticized along with its leader, former Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Nara Chandrababu Naidu, evolved due to the inaction of the central government on the special status issue. He threw his support behind Nara Chandrababu Naidu, who was advocating for Andhra Pradesh’s special status.
With the Yuvajana Sramika Rythu Congress Party (YSRCP) assuming power in Andhra Pradesh, Sivaji’s political activities took a backseat. Currently, he is entangled in a TV9-related matter.
Fans eagerly await Sivaji’s appearance on Bigg Boss Telugu Season 7 as it graces our television screens. His diverse background and outspoken personality make him one of the most intriguing contestants this season
