Kirron Kher termed as an outsider in Chandigarh, welcomed with eggs and black flags

Little did Bollywood’s favourite Punjabi mom expect that she would receive such a cold welcome in Chandigarh

Kirron Kher’s recent visit to Chandigarh proved to be a disaster. The actor is contesting the Lok Sabha elections this year on behalf of the Bharatiya Janat Party (BJP). Not only was her car pelted with eggs, but there was a section of her own party members labeling her ‘outsider’ and showing black flags in protest against her nomination from Chandigarh to contest polls. Kirron was accompanied by husband Anupam Kher, who seemed not just happy but extremely supportive about his wife’s political aspirations. Ms Kher beat former Union minister Harmohan Dhawan, Satya Pal Jain, and Chandigarh BJP president Sanjay Tandon to be named as BJP’s candidate from Chandigarh. Kirron herself downplayed the whole drama around her visit and rubbished the ‘outsider’ claims, she said, “I am a daughter of Chandigarh. I was born and brought up here. I have lived here. Those opposing me are also from the BJP family. We will pacify them.”

Kirron’s husband actor Anupam Kher seemed positive about his wife’s political innings, he said in a recent interview, “I am not associated with any political party. I have only campaigned once that was 25 years ago. But I have known Kirron since 1974. For many years she was my friend and she has been my wife for 28 years. If I campaign for anybody that would only be Kirron and I will definitely go.”

Apart from her own party workers, Kirron will be facing stiff opposition in Chandigarh from Aam Admi Party (AAP) representative and Bollywood’s another dimpled beauty Gul Panag, who will also contest elections from Chandigarh this year. Interestingly both these dimpled beauties have had a connection in the past, Gul was dating Kirron’s son Sikander Kher for sometime before they parted ways. This elections certainly doesn’t lack the filmi tadka or masala. There seems to be enough action and drama, however only time will which of these two B-town’s dimpled actors will finally emerge a winner in the Lok Sabha polls.Subscribe to me on YouTube

    Hope this smile of hers remains intact for a long time . But let us not forget she has chosen a
    bigger platform this time rather than just a live contest or a show. She is
    supposed to me making decisions for the betterment of people. The choice of
    party she made speaks volumes about her vision for India. Shame Kirron Kher.

  • Ranjeeta Singh

    All the best Kirron. Definitely you have chosen the wrong party
    to work with. God give you strength to handle this.

  • Geetanjali Iyyar

    All the best Kirron. You could have selected some other party to
    show your calibre here too… Bad choice.

  • Monika Verma

    Not the right party to work with. Rather than working this party
    only believes in spreading unrest and cultural differences within india.
    Their own party workers are unrestful enough and hardly have learnt any
    lessons.
