What explains Pawan Kalyan's enthusiasm?

There was a time when Pawan Kalyan would disappoint his fans by avoiding his own film promotions.  He wouldn't give interviews after his film's release.  Audio functions were almost a strict no till mid-2000s.  He changed slowly, though not evenly.  

For such a star, it's a far cry that he is found keen on going out of  his way to attend the functions of smaller actors like Nithin.  Recently, the 'Rangasthalam' success meet was a revelation.  He raised eyebrows when Pawan Kalyan spoke for 24 minutes at the meet.  It's not like his speech was measured.  It was full of superlative eulogies, something not expected of a political heavyweight.    

At a time when he is expected to give his all to politics, Power Star is ready to attend two more film functions later this week.  The audio function of Ravi Teja's 'Nela Ticket' was announced recently with him as the chief guest.  Latest, he will be the chief guest at Naa Peru Surya's success meet, christened as 'Thanks to India' meet.  They will be held on May 10.  

One wonders what explains this enthusiasm?
