“So, you have to understand my situation. I started my education in a street school, so it is a little difficult for me to address a speech in Harvard,” eh said to a cheering audience.
“I come from a lower middle class family. I studied in a street school and I had a lot of time to contemplate life’s problems. It became my lifetime obsession to compare what is being said and what is being done. And so successfully I failed my examinations and I didn’t continue my education. My focus was not on education, my focus was on issues that plagued the society. It made me go into depression. I wanted to commit suicide. As most of you know my brother was an actor by then. He owned a licensed pistol. I wanted to kill myself but my family counselled me. I then began experimenting with life. I studied computers, practised yoga, learned martial arts. I never wanted to be an actor. I wanted to be a yogi,” he said. (ALSO READ: It’s official: Chiranjeevi and Pawan Kalyan to work together in Trivikram Srinivas’ next and we cannot hold our EXCITEMENT)
