Aamir, SRK, Bachchans cast their votesFri, May 01, 2009 10:25 IST
Bollywood’s biggest stars queued up at polling booths to cast their votes for the final phase of the Lok Sabha elections in Maharashtra on Thursday.
While Aamir Khan and John Abraham turned up in the morning to exercise their franchise, Bollywood's first family, Amitabh Bachchan , Jaya Bachachan , Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai visited their nearest polling booth in Juhu in the afternoon.
Bachchans flashed their fingers to show the electoral ink before walking out.
Shahrukh Khan , who flew from South Africa to cast his vote, arrived late in a Bandra polling station and was mobbed by the waiting media.
“Being an actor and perhaps as someone people like to follow or listen to, if I don't vote, everything that I endorse and all the jobs that I do become irrelevant. Because the first endorsement I should give is for the electoral process,” Shahrukh said.
Similar sentiments were expressed by fellow actor Aamir Khan earlier in the day when he came out to cast his vote.
“Being an Indian it is our duty to exercise our voting rights. No matter where I am, I will come out and vote. I am very proud as an Indian to be a part of the voting fraternity,” Aamir said.
Film director Karan Johar , Sonali Bendre , Sonam Kapoor , Rahul Bose , Manyata Dutt, Sanjay Dutt , Paresh Rawal , Anupam Kher , Farhan Akhtar were among other celebrities who came to exercise their franchise.
Shilpa Shetty , who is in South Africa to cheer on her team, the Rajasthan Royals, did not cast her vote.
