BJP may field Malayalam superstar Mohanlal in 2019 Lok Sabha Polls

The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) is keen to field Malayalam superstar Mohanlal in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections from Thiruvananthapuram as a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidate, as per sources.

Reports says, RSS is trying to build a ‘social activist’ profile for Mohanlal, in the run-up to the polls.

The latest round of speculation came as Mohanlal on Monday, met Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi to invite him for a function organised by the actor’s community service initiative under VishwaSanthi Foundation in Wayanad.

 “It has been a privilege to meet our Honourable Prime Minister Shri. @narendramodi ji on this auspicious day of Janmashtami. Briefed him about @VishwaSanthiFndn and our multifaceted social initiatives,” Mohanlal tweeted.

According to the sources, Mohanlal’s meeting with PM Modi was part of an exercise to build a political and social profile for the actor and not a para-dropped profile

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday took to his twitter account to express about his meeting with Mohanlal

“Yesterday, I had a wonderful meeting with @Mohanlal Ji. His humility is endearing. His wide range of social service initiatives are commendable and extremely inspiring,” Modi tweeted.
