A superstar of Salman Khan's caliber is surely an opinion leader who can influence a lot of people. Salman had a controversial start in this year as his opinions about various political leaders have gone viral.
It even touched an insane peak when a Hyderabad MP urging his
followers to boycott Salman's films because Sallu told a few good
words about Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi!
Now Sallu Bhai is supporting Gurudas Kamat, who is the Mumbai
North West candidate of Congress. Dabangg Khan has great words for
Kamat as he says, "good work can be done only by a good person.
What's a good person?..One who takes a stand on things, which Kamat
takes! Then you raise your voice for it, which also Kamat does, and
to forgive who may have wronged you, which is rarely seen in
politics and the one who works for the people, not for himself,
which he does in plenty".
Another interesting fact is that Mahesh Manjarekar, who is a
good friend of Salman, is also contesting from the same
constituency on MNS ticket. It is the same constituency from where
Kamaal R Khan, the self proclaimed star and item dancer Rakhi
Sawant also contest.
But Salman was all praise for the congress leader and
appreciated his penchant for infrastructure and result-oriented
development. "I believe that a politician should be a social
worker, and that social work only is politics. Kamat is basically a
social worker who has chosen to do this good work through the
medium of his party," the Jai Ho actor explained.
Will Salman's support help Gurudas Kamat in winning the election? Only time will tell!
