The actor is a friend to Tollywood bigwigs including Chiranjeevi, Mohanbabu, Rajasekhar, Venkatesh to name some has been battling some health issues. A year ago he was treated for lung infection in Singapore. It is known that Ambarish is former Karnataka MLA for Congress.
Now with polls in Karnataka nearing Ambarish did not ask for ticket. The reason is his health issues. He is not keen for contesting this time. And without even he suggesting KPCC decided to have his wife Sumalatha Ambarish field for the party in Mandya (Ambarish's constituency).
Amabrish is said to have given yes to the new suggestion by Congress and filed an application to Congress High Command seeking party ticket. So we will new Sumalatha as MLA Sumalatha!!
