Responding to a question on whether Sonu Sood will enter politics, the actor said that he had not thought about joining politics. Sood made headlines last year after he helped migrant workers stuck in cities following nationwide lockdown announced by the Centre.
However The bollywood actor revealed that his sister Malvika will enter politics, although he has no such ambitions for himself. “We today formally wish to state that Malvika would absolutely come to serve Punjab,” said Sood addressing the media.
Punjab will go to elections early next year. The state is set to witness a two-cornered contest between the Congress and Kejriwal’s AAP, which is the second largest party in the state.
Sood’s announcement has fuelled speculation that his sister Malvika may contest the upcoming assembly polls from Moga, Punjab.
“We have not yet taken a call about the party. Whenever the time comes, we will make sure that we will let you know,” Sood said.
This year in August, the AAP government in Delhi appointed Sood as the brand ambassador of ‘Desh Ka Mentors’ program, which was intended for students and aimed to guide in making their career choices.
“Some of the students in government schools come from very poor backgrounds and there are very few people to guide them. We are appealing to educated people to become mentors for these children. Sonu Sood will be our brand ambassador for the programme,” Kejriwal had said.
The AAP had also backed the actor when officials of Income Tax department surveyed his residence in September.
