Contest Elections-We are ready-Soham, June and Hiran
By Hemanth Reddy S 05/02/2016

Come summer, Dev is going to have competition at the top of the pecking order of Tollywood stars-turned Trinamool politicians. If reports coming from within the ruling party are to be believed, Soham -Dev's competitor at the box office -may fight the Assembly elections on a Trinamool ticket along with other showbiz personalities like June and Hiraan.

The grapevine has it that names like Srabanti, Nusrat, Arindam Sil and Jagmohan Dalmiya's daughter Vaishali are also being discussed within the Trinamool as possible candidates.

 


If these stars indeed get tickets, they will join a host of other faces from Tollywood -MPs and MLAs -within the party's ranks, like Tapas Paul, Satabdi Roy , Moon Moon Sen, Chiranjeet and Debashree Roy . It will also signal that the south Indian tradition of filmstars like Jayalalithaa, NT Rama Rao and Chiranjeevi joining politics has become the common trend in Bengal too.

Admittedly , it is not easy for stars to find their footing in politics. Debashree Roy , who defeated CPM heavyweight Kanti Ganguly and is completing her first term as a Trinamool MLA, said, "I was at a loss when I went to my constituency , Raidighi, for the first time. Electricity, roads, water supply , hospitals -everything was in a mess. I didn't know if I would be able to make a difference. But with time, I got accustomed to my new role and started working for the people."

 


Dev, MP and Tollywood heartthrob, visits his constituency Ghatal quite often."I love my job as a politician.Being a hero and delivering big dialogues in an air-conditioned room is very easy .But actual heroism is when you go to these places and face the reality and stand by your voters.My film schedule keeps me busy but I feel it is still my responsibility to be by their side in their hour of need," said the actor.

 


Chiranjeet has enjoyed his stint as an MLA so far. "I enjoyed my work as I directly got to meet people who made me what I am today . I have developed a strong bond with the people of Barasat and I have worked very hard for the improvement of the area," said the actor.
