To a query on joining politics anytime in future, he ruled out any such possibility. Kirron Kher’s husband and Bollywood actor Anupam Kher while seeking people’s support for her wife, said he had discovered her as a strong woman.
“Today, I am here, being her husband for past 28 years and her friend for past 40 years,” he said. Though he was seeking support for Kirron, he clarified that he was not connected with any political outfit and “will always stand against corruption”.
He said he had joined Anna Hazare’s movement against corruption two years ago as he had wanted to raise voice against the menace of corruption. Kirron said she wanted to contest the Lok Sabha elections on “issues” and keep “glamour at bay”.
“I can bring several Bollywood films stars for my support here but I want to fight polls on the basis of issues concerning people. And I also want to keep glamour at bay from political campaign,” she said.
Kirron is pitted against Congress candidate and former Railway minister Pawan Kumar Bansal and Aam Aadmi Party candidate Gul Panag.
Meanwhile, BJP Chandigarh unit President Sanjay Tandon on Sunday claimed he had been receiving requests from members of Congress, AAP and BSP who wanted to join BJP.
