Will Chiranjeevi make it big in politics?

To my knowledge except for MGR (Tamil Nadu) and N T Ramarao (Andhra Pradesh), no other Indian film star made it big in the political arena (will comment on JJ later). Most of them were major flops, which includes great actors like Sivaji Ganesan and Amitabh Bacchan. I sometime fail to understand, why there isn’t any other life pattern. Most stars, in India at least, after having a successful film career, want to get into politics in the name of serving people. In fact serving people and being a good leader are two different things. You surely can serve people even without getting into the dirty politics, and politicians need not be in politics to serve people.
