Bollywood actor Neha Sharma to contest LS polls from Bihar's Bhagalpur? Congress leader drops hint

New Delhi/IBNS: Bollywood actor Neha Sharma might make her debut in politics with the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, her father Congress leader Ajay Sharma hinted. 

Ajay Sharma, who is an MLA from Bihar's Bhagalpur, told reporters that if Congress gets Bhagalpur seat in its seat-sharing arrangement with allies, he would pitch for his daughter to be nominated as the candidate.

"Congress should get Bhagalpur, we will fight and win the seat. If Congress gets Bhagalpur, I would want my daughter Neha Sharma to contest, since I am already a MLA. But if the party wants me to fight, I will do that," Ajay Sharma said.

Neha Sharma made her debut in films opposite Emraan Hashmi in 'Crook' and has since acted in movies like 'Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior', 'Yamla Pagla Deewana 2', 'Tum Bin 2' and 'Mubarakan'.

She is also popular on social media for her travel content and has over 21 million followers on Instagram.

Meanwhile, INDIA bloc's seat-sharing talks in Bihar took a hit when Chief Minister Nitish Kumar ended ties with Congress and joined hands with BJP in January.

Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Tejashwi Yadav has, however, said that the seat-sharing talks are almost over, and an official announcement could come out next week.
