Another leading Telugu film star "Junior" NTR, grandson of TDP founder N T Rama Rao, also queued up to vote.

Film personalities cast their votes in polling stations mainly in the posh locality of

Junior NTR's sister N Suhasini is the TDP candidate in constituency here.

Counting of votes would be taken up on December 11.

Assembly polls in were originally scheduled to be held simultaneously with the Lok Sabha polls next year.

The ruling TRS is going alone in the polls and so is the BJP.

The Congress, TDP, CPI and (TJS) have formed the 'People's Front' for the election.
