Hyderabad (Telangana) [India]: Renowned filmmaker SS Rajamouli, known for his magnum opus 'Baahubali' series, flew from Dubai to Hyderabad to cast his vote in the ongoing Telangana Lok Sabha elections.

Joining him were a host of Telugu cinema luminaries, including MM Keeravani, Chiranjeevi with wife Surekha Konidela, Jr NTR, and Allu Arjun, all stepping out to exercise their electoral franchise on Monday.

Amid the hustle and bustle of the fourth phase of Lok Sabha elections, SS Rajamouli took to social media platform X to share his voting experience.

Posting a picture with his wife Rama Rajamouli, displaying their inked fingers, Rajamouli expressed, "Flew from Dubai... Rushed to the polling booth directly from the airport, hence the tired looks... (smiling face emoji) Done! YOU?"

Earlier in the day, acclaimed music composer MM Keeravani and veteran actor Chiranjeevi, accompanied by his wife Surekha Konidela, were spotted at polling stations in Hyderabad, fulfilling their civic duty.
