Munnabhai 'Dutt' gets stones during poll campaigning

By Super Admin

Lucknow, Mar 29 (ANI): Bollywood actor-cum-Samajwadi Party candidate, Sanjay Dutt on Sunday faced students' ire after he failed to meet them as videly expected at the college campus here. He is Samajwadi Party's candidate from Lucknow constituency.

Dutt's convoy was pelted stones allegedly by university students for not meeting them.

Dutt had come to meet the college staff and students to seek their support for the upcoming general elections.

"When such a huge celebrity comes then obviously a chaos takes place. If a star doesn't land in such controversy then he is not a star," said Anuj, a student.

The actor is best known for his lead role in "Lage Raho Munnabhai," a comedy film about a gangster espousing Gandhian values that was adjudged the best popular film at the National Film Awards for 2006.

Political parties have often fielded Bollywood actors in elections, hoping to cash in on their popular appeal.

The general elections are scheduled to be held between April 16 and May 13, in which 714 million people will cast their votes. (ANI)
