Power star and Jana Sena Party president Pawan Kalyan is learnt to have performed “secret” pujas at Narasimha Swamy temple at Jagannathapuram of Dwaraka Tirumala mandal in West Godavari district in the early hours of Monday.According to reliable sources, Pawan performed special pujas and abhisekhams at the temple from 3 am to 4.30 am.
However, it is not exactly known what kind of pujas he had done at such an early hour and whether there was any special significance to these pujas.But, sources said, it was at the same temple, where Pawan Kalyan had performed “special pujas” at the time of release of his film Jalsa a decade ago.
Pawan was running through a bad patch in his career at that time and Jalsa became a big hit later, taking Pawan’s career to the next level.Interestingly, noted film critic Kathi Mahesh, who has been running a campaign against Pawan Kalyan, alleged in January this year that the power star had performed “tantric” pujas at the Narasimha Swamy temple 10 years ago to ward off “evil forces.”
He even alleged that Pawan’s girlfriend and actress Poonam Kaur also attended these “tantric pujas,” apart from his close friend and director Trivikram Srinivas.Kathi even named the priest – Pandit Narasimham, who had allegedly performed these tantric pujas for Pawan and Poonam Kaur.
He said such pujas were performed at least two or three times. He challenged them to prove him wrong, but there was no denial either from Pawan or Poonam.Now with Pawan performing early morning prayers at the same temple, one might believe that there could be some truth in Kathi Mahesh’s allegations made in the past!
