Sanjay DuttBollywood star Sanjay Dutt and actress Shilpa Shetty’s husband Raj Kundra hit the campaign trail on Friday in Leicester, UK. The duo came out in support of Indian-origin Labour MP, Keith Vaz, who is seeking re-election from the Leicester East constituency — better known as ‘Little India’. Kundra, Dutt and Vaz travelled in a cavalcade greeting people around the Belgrave area, which is the hub of Indian culture and business in this East Midlands town.

“I hope the Munnabhai effect will help my dear friend Keith Vaz. I have stopped politics in India, but wanted to show my support for Keith and people of Indian origin here,” Dutt said. Asked what is different here compared to election campaigns in India, Dutt said electioneering in UK is “much more peaceful”.Vaz, who has been MP from Leicester East since the last 23 years, said Dutt had a great fan following in Leicester and Britain. He said, “Leicester loves Bollywood. It is a city that needs to be respected for its support to Bollywood.”
