After roping in Shah Rukh Khan and Preity Zinta for canvassing, the Congress will bring another Bollywood star Salman Khan to campaign for the party in Uttar Pradesh.

Salman Khan will start campaigning for the party from neighbouring Unnao Lok Sabha constituency from Sunday.

The actor is scheduled to take part in several party functions in the district, Congress candidate from Unnao, Annu Tandon, said. The Congress had already announced that Shah Rukh Khan, Priety Zinta, Govinda and Nagma will campaign for the party and participate in rallies and road shows.

Govinda is a Congress leader and a sitting MP from Mumbai while Nagma had campaigned for the party in earlier elections too.

Tondon said Salman Khan would participate in 'Holi Milan Samaroh' at five villages of the district where other Bollywood artistes would perform. The permission for Khan's programme has already been granted by the district administration.
