The election fever has gripped the nation. We are getting 24x7 news about what is the status of polling all over the country. The states where voting is happening are Kerala, Karnataka, Gujarat and Goa. While most of the attention is on Narendra Modi who cast his vote in Ahmedabad today, celebrities who are voting are also getting great media exposure. The third phase of voting for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections started from early morning. There are 20 Lok Sabha seats from the Kerala constituency. There are two major parties battling it out in Kerala. They are the ruling Left Democratic Front, led by the Communist Party of India (Marxist) and the United Democratic Front led by the Indian National Congress (INC). The biggest party Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) is contesting from Thiruvananthapuram and Pathanamthitta. The cameras were on the polling booths to check for the eminent personalities. Well, Malayalam superstar Mohanlal came out to vote as did actor Aju Varghese. The two were photographed standing in queue as they waited to register their vote.
Mohanlal later took to Twitter where he put up a picture of his inked finger. He wrote a caption, “Voting is our democratic right and responsibility. I have exercised my right, so should all of you. Every vote counts!” The actor is on a high as his film Lucifer has crossed the 150 crore mark at the box office. The film is directed by Prithviraj Sukumaran and marks his debut as a filmmaker. Mohanlal is the only Malayalam actor to have a couple of 150 crore films in his kitty. The first one being Pulimurugan that made Rs 160 crore.
