Bollywood star Kangana Ranaut is an open BJP supporter. Kangana herself said that she supports Narendra Modi and his party, in many instances. If the ongoing rumors are anything to go by, she is all set to make her political entry next year by joining Bharatiya Janata Party.
According to the sources, Kangana is planning to contest in the upcoming Himachal Pradesh Assembly elections with the support of the BJP. The polls in Himachal will be held next year. BJP lost its steam in the state as Congress performed well in the recently held by-elections. Thus, BJP wants to retain its strength, and adding Kangana to their camp may boost the party a bit in Himachal. It also adds a bit of film-glamour to the party.
Moreover, Kangana hails from Himachal. After facing the wrath of the Maharashtra government last year, Kangana shifted her base to Himachal and is coming to Mumbai only when there are any film works. As it is her home state, Kangana will be happy to represent BJP in Himachal.
Kangana is outspoken and often makes political statements in the media. She also criticizes the opposition parties quite often. Thus, analysts have opined that she can do well for the BJP. But it has to be seen if the people of Himachal are okay to accept Kangana as a political leader. Only time will tell us.
