Famous Haryanvi singer and dancer Sapna Chaudhary has joined Indian National Congress (INC) on Saturday (March 23) ahead of Lok Sabha polls.
It is being speculated that the grand old party might field Sapna Chaudhary from Mathura Lok Sabha constituency against BJP leader and veteran actress Hema Malini.
The reports of Choudhary joining politics first emerged in June 2018, after BJP lawmaker Ashwini Kumar Chopra called her a ‘thumke lagane wali’ and took potshots at the Congress over rumours of the artiste joining the grand old party.
“Ashwini Chopra must be watching my dance that is why he passed that remark. I would like to thank him,” Choudhary responded fiercely. She’d also added that the Congress had presented a few offers.
“The Congress has placed some offers before me. If I like it, I will think about it, but as of now, I have not taken any decision… I went to the Congress office as they called me, if the BJP too calls me I will go and meet them,” she had said.
Sapna Choudhary is known for her songs like ‘Teri Aakhya Ka Yo Kajal’, she also appeared in reality TV show Big Boss which bought her immense popularity.
Sapna has done item numbers in couple of Bollywood movies like ‘Veere Ki Wedding’ and ‘Nanu ki Janu’.
In Bhojpuri cinema, she was seen performing in a song titled ‘Mere Samne Aake’ in Ravi Kishan-starrer Bairi Kangana 2.
The Seven-phase Lok Sabha will begin from April 11 and will end on May 19, while counting of votes will take place on May 23.
