Bollywood and politics are two media in India that reach directly to most of the masses. If you take a little time to compare the two, you will find many similarities between them (including the participation of tons of money and trucks of glory). Also, both Bollywood and politics have tremendous power when it comes to impacting the minds of the public. This is probably the reason why we've seen many Bollywood celebrities who try their luck in politics.
This transition of fame from elsewhere to politics is not exclusive to Bollywood actors. We have seen sportsmen, athletes and celebrities from various other areas joining the club. For those celebrities who have already succeeded in their own field, politics has become a place to restore the public image and serve the country. For the countries they are valuable candidates because they are already popular among the public, making it profitable for the party. Since they are specific to Bollywood, there are actors who have tried their luck in politics after failing to achieve the success of the film industry and have stars who have joined politics after they have cut the number of films with to work. Over the years, Indian politics has had many Bollywood actresses who come into politics and prove that they are not just beautiful faces but also highly-minded women who want to serve the nation. Let's look at some of Bollywood's actresses who made it big in politics.
1. Jaya Bachchan
Ms. Bachchan is one of the golden stars of his time in Bollywood. Jaya was first elected to the Raja Sabha in 2004 by the Samayawi Party and represented Uttar Pradesh. She was elected for the second time in 2006, for the third time in 2012 and for the fourth time in 2018! Now this is definitely a strong political career.
2. The Bollywood Dream Girl went into politics when she moved for actor Vinod Hanna, who is a candidate for the Bhratti Janja (BJP) for the election in Lok Sabha since 1999 in Punjab. Later in 2004, Hema officially joined the BJP. After being nominated by the then president Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, she served as a member of Rajya Sabha from 2003 to 2009. Hema assumed responsibility as the Secretary General of BJP in 2010, which was a huge leap in her political career. She won the 2014 general election of the Mathura constituency to become a member of Lok Sabha
Reha is a multifaceted actress whose beauty is eternal. At 64, she still dazzles. She was nominated for Rajya Sabha's president in 2012 along with Sachin Tendulkar. It is reported that Jaya Bachchan, who was then a member of Rajasababa, has moved to another chair so that it will not be in the same frame as Reha (we know why).
4. Isha Koppikar
The actress and model, who is known for his adventurous way of life, has also tried his luck in politics. For the general election in 2014, Gul was a candidate for the Aam Aadmi party in Chandigarh. However, she is overtaken by Kiron Herr and she is third in the election.
7. Shabana Azmi
Shabana Azmi is one of the most prominent actresses Bollywood ever had and her choice of movies never surprises us. Her parents Caifi Azmi and Shaukat Azimi were members of the Communist Party of India. So it was not so much a surprise when he decided to join the politics. Shabana was nominated for a member of the Sabha Raha in 1997 and attended membership until 2003. Since then, many political parties have been approached to compete in the election, but Shabana has been more interested in working for empowerment of women without joining her.
Smirti Iran, who is a huge star on the little screen, has also made her very big in politics. Also South Indian actresses like the late Jayalitta became a revolutionary figure in the history of Indian politics. Which actress do you think is the most successful politician?
