Bollywood and politics are two worlds where if you are able to stand out, then you make a mark for sure! Despite making their presence felt in the world of Bollywood, our favourite celebrities decided to capitalize on their fame for the good of the country. Here are a few celebrities who work hard to make the world a better place by entering the world of politics.

1. Dharmendra 

Popularly known as the He Man of Bollywood, Dharmendra is known more for his work as a politician as compared to his work as an actor. In the 2004 General Elections, he was elected as MP from Bikaner in Rajasthan, as a part of the Bharatiya Janata Party. He was widely criticised for his remark made during his election campaign where he was quoted saying he should be elected Dictator so he could teach basic etiquette that democracy requires. While said during a campaign, he was also criticised for not taking the Parliament sessions seriously as he preferred spending time in farm work or in film shoots.

2. Jaya Bachchan 

After a long and extremely successful career in the Bollywood industry, Jaya Bachchan shifted her focus to social service and joined politics. She spent a good deal of time with the Samajwadi Party and later, made her way to the Rajya Sabha. She has been active on social issues. Her reaction to the Nirbhaya case in Rajya Sabha gave goosebumps to every Indian.

3. Raj Babbar 

Bollywood actor, Raj Babbar, joined politics in the year 1989 by becoming a member of the Janta Dal. Later on, he joined the Samajwadi Party for whom he was elected as an MP not once, but thrice. He also served in the Rajya Sabha from 1994 to 1999. In the year 2008, he joined the Congress and became an MP for the fourth time in 2009. Unfortunately, he lost to General V.K. Singh in the Lok Sabha elections in 2014, when he contested from the Ghaziabad constituency. At present, he serves as the president of the Uttar Pradesh Congress Committee.

4. Rajesh Khanna 

Rajesh Khanna started to campaign to join the Congress in the year 1984, a move which was suggested by Rajive Gandhi. His first election was in 1991 when he contested the seat of New Delhi against L.K. Advani. With 1589 votes, the margin of errors was a narrow one. At that time Khanna insisted quite strongly, that he had been cheated out of a win. When a by election took place for the same seat in 1992 he defeated Shatrughan Sinha with 25,000 votes! Up until till the year 1996, Khanna served as an MP from the New Delhi seat.

5. Hema Malini 

Actress turned politician Hema Malini campaigned for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidate Vinod Khanna, former Bollywood actor during the Lok Sabha elections in Gurdaspur, Punjab. From 2003 to 2009, the then President of India, A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, nominated her as the MP to the Rajya Sabha. She officially joined the BJP in the year 2004 and was appointed as the general secretary of the BJP. In 2014 General Elections, she was elected to Lok Sabha after she defeated Mathura incumbent Jayant Chaudhary. She is also a supporter of PETA India, the animal rights organisation.

Bollywood Films That Show How One Is Never Too Old For Happily Ever Afters

Bollywood Films That Show How One Is Never Too Hold For Happily Ever Afters, Best Bollywood Love Story Movies, Top 5 Bollywood Films that shows love has no age, Older Woman Younger Man Hindi Movies, Mango Bollywood, Bollywood Latest News, All Time Best Hindi Love Story Movies, Top 5 older woman younger man relationship movies

How often have you look at twenty odd year old couples walking hand in hand and not given the idea a thought? However, how often have you watched a movie and suddenly realised the age gap between the leads in not quite what you are used to? Bollywood has tried time and time again to break free from the cliches and set its own rules and today, we give you a list which breaks stereotypes!

1. Akshay Khanna and Dimple Kapadia in Dil Chahta Hai 

Even in the early 2000s, when we claimed to be a progressive audience, the idea of a younger man professing his love for an older woman was not the norm. Dil Chahta Hai set the trend for a different world, where Akshay Khanna‘s character subtly showed his love for Dimple Kapadia’s character, an older, alcoholic divorcee. While she did not entirely reciprocate the feelings, the emotions were displayed beautifully!

2. Akshay Kumar and Rekha in Khatron Ka Khiladi 

Akshay Kumar’s explosive make out sessions with the older woman Rekha, when on a quest to find his brother’s whereabouts in Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi, was all things twisted and steamy. What makes this film so special is the unique pairing of Akshay Kumar and Rekha! Truth be told, there was no way one could have shown these two at a similar age!

3. Anil Kapoor and Sridevi in Lamhe 

Lamhe, perhaps one of the most progressive films to have released in Bollywood, showed Anil Kapoor‘s character falling in love with the much older character of Sridevi’s character. What makes this film all the more iconic is how Sridevi’s daughter comes back years after her mother’s death and falls in love with Anil Kapoor’s character all over again! To say no other film managed to reach this level would be an understatement!

4. Konkana Sen Shrama and Ranbir Kapoor in Wake Up Sid 

This film has to be one of my favourite movies on this list. An older Konkana Sen Sharma tries over and over again to find someone who matches her expectations, only to realise the true love of her life is none other than the much younger Ranbir Kapoor! Clearly true love has no boundaries, right?

5. Ranbir Kapoor (again) and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan from Ae Dil Hai Mushkil 

Ae Dil Hai Mushkil was all about unrequited love, longing and the pain felt by broken hearts. One of the best ways this could have been shown was through Ranbir Kapoor’s and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan‘s relationship. Weird to say the least, the makers stuck to the bold theme all the way through!

One is never too old to love and Bollywood always reinforces this fact over and again! If you think we missed out on any movies which have to be added to the list, comment and let us know!

Kajal Aggarawal shows us how to do the #KikiChallenge in a safe way. The #KikiChallenge quickly become popular over the internet after Drake released his song In My Feelings from his latest album Scorpion. The #KikiChallenge is when a person dances to the song beside a moving car, while someone is filming it from the car. First the Tide Pod Challenge now this? I’m scared for this generation.

Kajal Aggarawal along with her co star Bellamkonda Sai Sreenivas created awareness regarding this dangerous challenge. The actors use a wheelchair instead of a car and end their video with a safety message.

 

The Mumbai Police condemned this dangerous challenge by tweeting out their disapproval. The Police later punished three people for participating in the challenge. They got the offenders to clean up the police station.

Here are a few celebrities that have done the #KikiChallenge on Instagram. Please, kids, do not try this at home (or on the road)!

Adah Sharma takes a classic spin on the challenge.

#ANDHADHUN Starring Tabu, Ayushmann Khurana and Radhika Apte

#ANDHADHUN Starring Tabu Ayushmann Khurana and Radhika Apte, AndhaDhun Motion Poster, Ayushmann Khurrana Upcoming Movie News, ANDHADHUN Movie Latest Updates, Mango Bollywood, Radhika Apte Upcoming Hindi Movie News, ANDHADHUN Latest Movie First Look, AndhaDhun Hindi Movie First Look Poster

The first motion poster of AndhaDhun, starring Ayushmann Khurrana, Radhika Apte and Tabu just released! The film is directed by Sriram Raghavan co produced by Viacom18 Motion Pictures and Matchbox Pictures, is set to release on 5 October 2018.


Ayushmann Khurrana is moving away from his comfort zone after acting in romcoms such as Vicky Donor, Bareilly Ki Barfi and Meri Pyaari Bindu. He plays a blind pianist in this latest film.

“It (doing Andhadhun) was a deliberate decision. I think it is not important to reinvent yourself with every film. Actors probably take themselves too seriously thinking, ‘I have to be different in every film’. But more than seeing you differently, the audience wants to see you doing a different story. Apart from that, you can reinvent yourself after establishing yourself in a particular genre,” the actor said.


The first look of the film will be revealed on soon. Andhadhun will be set in Pune and the shoot is almost complete. Talking about the film’s title, the director, Sriram Raghavan said, “We are punning with the title as Ayushmann plays a blind pianist. It goes well with the story too. We had a lot of options in our mind, including Shoot The Piano Player, but the producers weren’t keen on using an English title. I know the real word is ‘Andhadhund’, but the ‘D’ is silent for us.”

We are so excited to see Ayushmann Khurana and Radhika Apte together! Are you?
