Shah Rukh Khan, who was one among the very few to have cast vote making arrangements to travel a day later to IIFA awards, cracked a witty joke on the concept of voting. The actor known for his dry sense of humour went ahead and tweeted to all his fans
“Most times I don’t even get to choose the channel I want to watch on TV. Today I have an opportunity to choose my country’s future. Awesome!” – read the statement.
A lot of Bollywood celebrities actively voted yesterday, flaunting their inked index fingers all over the social network. However, the voting turnout for Mumbai was rather poor, as compared to Chennai. Celebs like Big B, Aamir Khan, Rajinikanth, Vidya Balan, Farhan Akhtar, Rahul Bose, John Abraham etc., were seen voting at various polling booths.
While these celebs stay out, the others like Malaika Arora, Sonakshi Sinha, Shahid Kapoor, Deepika Padukone and Yami Gautam skipped voting, thanks to travelling to Tampa Bay early to preside over IIFA awards.
Polling in Mumbai began at 7 AM yesterday for the final phase of the Lok Sabha Elections in Maharashtra. As many as 338 candidates are testing electoral waters in 19 Lok Sabha seats.
Shah Rukh Khan is most likely to leave for IIFA shortly. The award ceremony that flaunts glamour, fashion, celeb mania to the highest level is a rage among both the actors as well as the masses. This year’s IIFA should see a lot of fashion and glitterati happening, as the venue is super loved by our favourite stars.
