2019 Lok Sabha elections are beginning tomorrow and not only politicians but a large population of Bollywood is also seen canvassing votes for their favourite political parties. After 600 artistes including Naseeruddin Shah & Konkona Sensharma urged people to vote against BJP, more than 900 artists and persons in the field of literature have now released their statement in BJP’s favour.
These artists in their defence have said that they are not supporting any political party or ideology but are only helping voters decide whom to choose as their leader. Actor Ranveer Shorey in his video tweet targeted Congress and said that all the problems that India is facing right now have always been there.
A lot of voters who are also Bollywood enthusiasts are likely to get influenced by these artists and this can be established with the fact that millions of voters have decided to press NOTA on the Election Day only because their favourite Bollywood celebrities Abhishek Bachchan and Uday Chopra have refused to take any political side.
“I like Abhishek Bachchan, I follow him blindly. I gave up my job for him, so if he isn’t telling me whom to vote for, I would happily press NOTA” tweeted the fanclub account of Abhishek Bachchan.
