BENGALURU: Renowned Kannada actor has turned down Karnataka Deputy Chief Minister DK Shivakumar's proposal to run as a candidate in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. Shivakumar made this revelation during the Idiga community convention in the state capital. He had extended the opportunity to Shiva Rajkumar emphasizing its exclusivity and importance within the party.

"I suggested Shiva Rajkumar contest the Lok Sabha elections, distinct from his film career. While acting is always an option such opportunities in politics are rare and should not be missed," Shivakumar conveyed to the actor.
