You would have noticed many times that politicians can get emotional and hyper but only when situation demands and there is a motive behind it. Rest of the times they are completely practical and are not moved by situations or sensitive stuff.

Despite that, one Chief Minister was moved by a film. We are talking about Chandrababu Naidu, the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh and the film in discussion is the historical opus Gautamiputra Satakarni. He got to have a special screening along with the other ministers.

It is heard that after watching the movie, he came up with a flood of questions for director Krish and he felt very emotional after hearing the last voiceover from Krish regarding the Telugu identity and the power of a Telugu warrior king. Satakarni held Amaravathi as the capital during his regime and now Naidu is in that position so you can get the drift now.
