Bollywood actor Suniel Shetty on Thursday added colour and glitz to electioneering as he participated in a roadshow and campaigned for ruling BJD candidates in Odisha’s Koraput district on Thursday.
Shetty joined the election campaign of school and mass education minister and BJD candidate Rabi Narayan Nanda at Jeypore town.
The actor also sought votes for BJD’s Lok Sabha candidate from Koraput seat Jhina Hikaka. “I have come here to campaign for Nandaji as a friendand not as a film actor. Nandaji has done good works as a minister. Therefore, I appeal people to vote for him,” Shetty said.
Shetty, for whom campaigning during elections in the state is not a new venture, will also participate in road shows at two more places in the district in the coming days.
In 2009, Shetty, along with actress Raveena Tandon, had campaigned for independent candidate Jitu Patnaik in the Champua Assembly constituency in Keonjhar district. Incidentally, the ruling BJD has roped in several Odia film stars for the coming Lok Sabha as well as the Assembly polls. A group of Odia film personalities on Wednesday campaigned for Congress candidate and sitting Kalahandi MP Bhakta Charan Das.
