It's known that the Movie Artists Association is going for polls later this year. Already, Prakash Raj and Manchu Vishnu have confirmed that they are contesting for the President's post. Jeevitha Rajasekhar is also in the race. And character artist Hema has joined the race now. She is the fourth person to run for the top post.
Speaking about her decision, Hema said, "I have served MAA as Vice-President, Joint Secretary and Executive Committee member over the years. I have done full justice to my roles. I wanted to seek the Treasurer's post this year."
She further added, "After big names announced that they are running for President this time, I thought of dropping the idea of being in the fray. But, since yesterday, my supporters have been calling me up and requesting me to enter the fray. They have been my supporters for a long time. They feel that I am always accessible at any time. I have now decided to contest".
