According to Times Now News, in his first address after his party’s historic win at the Assembly Elections, the actor-turned-politician said, “This (win) made me more responsible but not arrogant. I can promise that we shall be more careful and make sure that the state’s progress will always remain our top priority.”

Pawan Kalyan also talked about the Sanskrit phrase ‘Dharmo Rakshati Rakshitah’ which he believes saved the day for him. “I remember around 18 years ago when I was practicing Yoga in Tirupati I learnt ‘Dharmo Rakshati Rakshitah’ ( which translates into if you stand for the truth, the truth will protect you). Today we stood for Dharma (truth) and it protected us,” he said. 

Further, the actor compared his victory with the success of his first commercial hit. Elaborating on the same he said that the first time he tasted real success was when his film Tholi Prema became a blockbuster hit and after that, he tasted success with this magnificent win. 


The Attarintiki Daredi actor also recalled the 2019 Assembly Elections when his party lost in both constituencies. Despite the significant loss, Pawan talked about how he remained strong. 

“I never had the fear of failure, in fact, failure gives me more strength and motivates me'', he added.
