Bhopal: Amid growing demand among Congress workers here to field Pataudi family daughter-in-law and actoress Kareena Kapoor in Bhopal Lok Sabha constituency in the upcoming general elections, the actress on Monday quashed the reports.

The 38-year-old actor said making movies are and will always be her priority and she has no plans to join politics.

“There is no truth to these reports. I have not been approached for this whatsoever. My focus is and only will be movies,” Kareena said in a statement.

Earlier, party activists led by Bhopal Municipal Corporation councillor Yogendra Singh Chouhan had met former MP Rameswar Nikhra, who has been appointed party in-charge of Madhya Pradesh for the LS elections, to put forth their demand for nominating Kareena as party candidate for Bhopal LS seat.

“Bhopal is home of Pata-udi family. Bhopalis take pride in identifying their native place with Nawab Pataudi dynasty. Congress can wrest the Bhopal seat, known as a traditional saffron bastion, from BJP if the party fields Kareena Kapoor in the constituency in the ensuing parliamentary elections,” Mr Chouhan said on Monday.

The Congress had fielded ex-India cricket captain Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi in Bhopal in the 1991 LS elections.

Late Pataudi, who had secured 2,06,000 votes then, lost to BJP candidate Sushil Chandra Verma by over one lakh votes.
