Amitabh Bachchan as President of India

Filed under: Bollywood Gossip

If rumors are to be believed then the Big B may well abridge the gap betwwen the reel to real Sarkar. Four Indian political parties are considering nominating Amitabh Bachchan, Bollywood’s best-known actor, to run for the country’s largely ceremonial post of president .

The Times Now television channel said some political parties were discussing four names for the contest, one of them being Bachchan and the rest seasoned politicians.

“Discussions are reportedly on between TDP and Samajwadi Party leaders to get the superstar to agree,” the Times of India said, referring to talks between two regional parties with significant clout in national politics.

Two other regional groups – the AIADMK and Asom Gana Parishad -are also keen on nominating Mr. Bachchan to the President’s post .


The Congress, which usually avoids talking about the Bachchans, has hit back at talk of an actor being considered for president although many Indian movie stars have successfully switched to politics and even ruled states.

“Our country has a greater future than having stars take up president-ship, no matter how eminent they may be,” Congress spokesman Abhishek Manu Singhvi said.


However ,the Samajwadi Party’s reported intention to field the Big B as its candidate for presidency has the mega-star touched who, however, minced no words to say he wanted to stay out of politics.Amitabh said: “I’m deeply humbled and touched by the thought. But I’m not worthy of such a distinguished post of responsibility. Besides no such offer or proposal has come my way yet.”

“I’ve constantly maintained politics is not my cup of tea. That’s unlikely to change. There’re many other ways of making oneself useful to the country and the society besides politics,” he added.

That’s the way to go Mr. Bachchan ,you are fantastic as an actor and we want to see you perform on the big screen , not attending political meetings and stuff . Right ?
