Telugu filmstar and Jana Sena Party leader Pawan Kalyan is all set to address a public meeting in Tirupati on Saturday after a long gap, arousing curiosity about the sudden purpose of the event.

Of late, Kalyan has not spoken anything on issues concerning the state and he even did not tweet anything after April 30 though he became a subject of criticism on social media over his continued silence on the special category status to Andhra Pradesh.

Kalyan had been a vocal supporter of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and has remained rather "friendly" with Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu.

His only recent statement on the special status issue was when he met former CM of Karnataka Kumara Swamy in Hyderabad on August 20.

"It is a sensitive issue and I will respond at an appropriate time," Kalyan said that day.

It is expected that he may come out clearer on the issue at the public meeting.

Kalyan had been camping in the temple town of Tirupati for the last two days. On Friday, he visited the family of his fan and Jana Sena worker Y Vinod Kumar who was allegedly stabbed to death by the fans of another film star NTR Jr.

Kalyan grieved the death and consoled Vinod's family and was distraught to know that the engineering student had plans of flying to the US for further studies.

On Friday, the star visited Tirumala Hills and worshipped Lord Venkateswara and will again take part in the Suprabhata Seva of the Lord in the wee hours of Saturday.

He will address the public meeting at Indira grounds but there is no clarity yet on why the meeting is being organised without any formal announcement.

"We will take a decision on giving permission for the event depending on the prevailing conditions. Our staff is just returning from Pushkaram duties," Tirupati Urban SP Vijayalakshmi said.
