Amitabh Bachchan, whose character in Bhootnath Returns contests in elections, says he is apolitical in real life and will never join politics.
When asked what his political stand was, he said “I am apolitical and and no, I shall not join politics.”
The veteran actor had contested Lok Sabha elections from Allahabad in 1984 and registered a massive win, resigned after three years of his tenure as an MP.
Meanwhile, he recently posted on his blog about how Bhootnath Returns is taking up most of his time now. “The Bhoothnath Returns promotions now take up all my spare time and travel. There is much to be done and there are time constraints. Radio, television, print, channel shows, visits to cities, premieres”, was his blogpost.
He also wrote about the projects he is looking forward to “R. Balki’s rather unusual and exciting film with Dhanush and Akshara starting work next month, TV serial shooting in progress and we hope that it comes on soon, Shoojit Sarkar’s film ‘Piku’ with Deepika (Padukone) and Irrfan Khan, starting work by June-July, simultaneously starting preparations for ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC)’”.
