India Elections : Shahrukh and Preity to campaign for Congress

As the country moved towards Lok Sabha election fever, Bollywood star Salman Khan jumped into political campaigning and promoted the Congress party in Uttar Pradesh’s Unnao district on Sunday

Congress has said that Bollywood actors Shah Rukh Khan and Preity Zinta will canvass for the party in the run-up to the Lok Sabha polls.

Union minister of state for home and Congress’ third-time candidate from the city Sri Prakash Jaiswal said that filmstars Shah Rukh Khan, Preity Zinta, Govinda and Nagma will campaign for the party and participate in rallies and roadshows.

He said though Govinda is a Congress leader, Nagma had been an active worker and campaigned for the party in earlier elections.

South actor Nagarjuna too has said he’ll appeal to all his fans to support Congress.

Faced with a tough election ahead, the Congress is also banking on the popularity of the oscar winning Slumdog Millionaire song “Jai Ho..” The Congress has bought the rights of the award-winning song from T-series and is set to use it appropriately once its election campaign gets underway.
