Amitabh Bachchan for President post

By Staff

If rumours are to be believed, Amitabh Bachchan is likely to contest the presidential election, and if elected will be the 12th President of India! Amitabh's name is doing the rounds among the probable candidates for India's highest constitutional position.

A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, the current Indian President would vacate the office in July, and hence there is talk about Amitabh becoming India's future President. It must be remembered here that the superstars brief advent in politics earlier had proved to be a disaster, and he himself had ruled out any involvement in politics.

Amitabh, on his hand is silent, not confirming or denying the talk. Amar Singh, Bachchan's trusted confidante was non-committal: "You can go ahead and say anything... make Amitabh Bachchan a PM or President. Big B is like a kite. Let's see how far he can fly..."

Asked about Amitabh Bachchan's name doing rounds for the President's post, TDP president N Chandrababu Naidu supported this, and questioned what was wrong if he was elected as the President. It remains to be seen if this is true.
