About Bollywood Stars and Power Politics ..

Sports, Politics and Acting are arguably the three most glamorous profession in the world . Few of the people in such profession keep shifting to other professions to keep their name and charisma alive .May be the fame and attention are the most desired elements for people who have achieved a lot in their career or life and they keep doing different things to seek attention to remain in limelight or Page 3 of the newspapers.

It was not surprised to see Sanju Baba agreeing to contest elections from Lucknow when he is nowhere related to the issues or politics of the place. One of the prime reasons of the actors entering politics is their dwindling acting career which can no more guarantee them the popularity of their past. Likes of Rajesh Khanna ,Govinda,  Vinod Khanna , Darmendra etc all have tried their hand at politics with little success at the fag-end of their careers . What differentiates Sanjay from other politicians is his checkered past and his experiments with AK-47 which may not help him in becoming the Nawab of Lucknow but can certainly revive the ugly stories of his past.

Lord Byron says “What is fame? The advantage of being known by people of whom you yourself know nothing, and for whom you care as little. But in this world of people seeking power and attention, the charm of fame will remain as the illusionary power which will keep driving the people to fall for it.
