I would think that probably the very first film star to enter politics was Karunanidi of DMK and then MGR.. Both of them.were very successful politicians and leaders. Nargis Dutt was made the Rajya Sabha MP because of her closeness to Indira Gandhi and Congress party .
Most actors past their prime, seem to find their way into politics these days .. But of late majority of the actors and celebrities have contributed precious little in their capacity as elected leaders , .what is your opinion on film stars and celebrities entering politics?
Pay no mind to those who talk behind your back, it simply means that you are two steps ahead !!!
