New Delhi/IBNS: Bollywood actress-producer Kangana Ranaut is "honoured" and "elated" securing a ticket from the country's ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) from Himachal Pradesh's Mandi in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.

After the announcement of BJP's fifth candidate list, Kangana posted on X, "My beloved Bharat and Bhartiya Janta’s own party, Bharatiya Janta party ( BJP) has always had my unconditional support, today the national leadership of BJP has announced me as their Loksabha candidate from my birth place Himachal Pradesh, Mandi (constituency) I abide by the high command’s decision on contesting Loksabha polls.

"I feel honoured and elated to officially join the party. I look forward to be a worthy karyakarta and a reliable public servant. Thanks."

Kangana, who has always remained a supporter of the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, last year had expressed her wish to contest the parliamentary elections.

Kangana had said she would contest if Lord Krishna blesses her.

The 37-year-old actress, who hails from Himachal Pradesh's Bhambla, has a career spanning for two decades.

Among other top names featured in BJP's fifth candidate list are former Calcutta High Court Chief Justice Abhijit Gangopadhyay from West Bengal's Tamluk, industrialist Naveen Jindal from Kurukshetra.

The Lok Sabha elections will be held from April 19 to June 1 in seven phases. The counting of polls will take place on June 4.
