Election Results 2014: Vinod Khanna leads in Punjab constituency

The veteran Bollywood actor is leading in his constituency

Although the actor lost out in the 2009 Lok Sabha elections but now he has again taken it upon himself and contested the elections from Gurdaspur seat. Actor-turned-politician Vinod Khanna was leading over Punjab Congress President Partap Singh Bajwa from Gurdaspur Lok Sabha constituency in Punjab. Bajwa was trailing by 9,979 votes, election office said.

Before the results, the confident actor had said: “A lot of change is going to happen once our government comes. “Lots of changes will happen very fast and quickly and you will see that happening at the grassroot level. We all talk about change at a very superficial level, but now it will come to the grassroot level. It will effectively change the lives of millions of people.”

He further added that politics is his prime responsibility, but does manage to squeeze in time to act in films, a craft he knows well. However, when it comes to direction, he feels now it’s too late to fulfil his long-cherished dream.
