Fresh in the political stage, TV actor Shekhar Suman says that his decision to join the Congress party and contest elections was a well thought over one.
“I contemplated with the idea last time when I was offered the ticket but I was not prepared then. Now I am geared up to start a new inning of my life. I want to do it whole heartedly. After meeting Soniaji, I made up my mind.” said Shekhar, who became a popular TV personality for hosting various comedy shows.
“I am not a hardcore politician. I know what not to do in this field so I won’t give anybody a chance to pull my leg. I want to change the image of cine stars who become ‘ Eid ka chand´ after winning the election’, Suman, who keeps revamping his screen image, said.
Suman’s prime opponent from the Patna Saheb parliamentary seat is BJP’s Shatrughan Sinha, the actor-politician who in his acting days was known as ‘Bihari babu’. Regarding the contest between the two ‘Bihari’s’ Suman says, “If he is Bihari Babu, then I am also Khanti (original) Bihari. I am proud to be a Bihari.” Suman told PTI.
