Veteran actor Anil Kapoor impresses fans not just on-screen but off-screen as well.
The 62-year-old made headlines again when a Twitter user suggested that he be made the chief minister of Maharashtra.
“Maharashtra mein jab tak koi rasta nahi nikalta, tab tak anil kapoor ko hi mukhyamantri bana kar dekh lete hain. Parde par unka ek din ka karyalay poore desh ne dekha aur saraha hai. Devendra Fadnavis aur Aaditya Thackeray kya soch hai? (Until we reach a solution for Maharashtra, why not make Anil Kapoor the chief minister? Everyone watched and loved his one-day session on the big screen. What say Devendra Fadnavis, Aditya Thackeray?),” the user, Vijay Gupta wrote on Twitter alongside a picture of Anil Kapoor from the iconic film, Nayak(2001).
In response to the tweet, Anil Kapoor said, “Main nayak hi theek hu (I am better off as an actor).”
Fans cheered the actor’s tweet while many followed up on Vijay Gupta’s suggestion by making their own additions.
Nayak was a political action thriller directed by S Shankar starring Anil Kapoor, Rani Mukerji, Amrish Puri, Paresh Rawal and Johnny Lever in the lead roles.
Anil Kapoor played a TV journalist who is challenged by the sitting CM to take office for a day. On his 1 day stint, he is asked to be the CM for the designated tenure.
The BJP-Shiv Sena won an absolute majority in the Maharashtra Assembly polls with 161 seats in total. Shiv Sena bagged 56 seats in the elections.
Debate emerged when Shiv Sena raised a demand for power-sharing between the two parties for 2.5 years each.
