As the 2019 Loksabha elections are heading nearby, the political parties have all geared up for the same. All the parties are busy gathering their party and planning their campaigns. It was recently seen that Bollywood actress Isha Koppikar joined the BJP (Bharatiya Janta Party) on January 27.
Bollywood actor Isha Koppikar joined BJP in the presence of Union Minister Nitin Gadkari. She has been appointed as the working president of the women’s transport wing of the BJP. She tweeted thanking the party for the warm welcome and says that she’s looking forward to serve the country.
At the Mumbai event, she says,””I will try my best to fulfill all the responsibilities the party gives me. I will also make sure that I can do all that is in my capacity to serve the country,”. Ms Koppikar’s appointment comes a day after a BJP leader Kailash Vijayvargiya took a jibe at Congress saying, “they want to contest the coming elections by banking on chocolatey faces.”
Mr Vijayvargiya on Sunday clarified saying he was referring to only actors and not political leaders. “I would like to tell my friends in media that if there is such a statement, then they should cross-check it. I used the term chocolatey face for Bollywood actors. I did not use it for any political leader,” he said.
Isha Koppikar started her career in 1998 with Telegu movies. She also starred in Tamil, Marathi and Kannada movies. In the year 2000, she starred beside Hritik Roshan in the film ‘Fiza’ and the song ‘Khallas’ got her noticed in the Ram Gopal Verma film. It will be good to see her handling a new political field which is a new experience for her.
