Bollywood actor Sridevi with her producer husband Boney Kapoor upped the glamour quotient in the rural belt of Agra as they participated in a roadshow in support Amar Singh, Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD) candidate from Fatehpur Sikri parliamentary constituency, on Tuesday.

The yesteryear heartthrob expressed happiness over participating in the roadshow, and said, "Amar Singh is ‘yaaron ka yaar’ and he keeps his promises."

"We are in Agra to support him as a friend," said Boney Kapoor adding, "We hope he wins the election as he has the ability to carry out development."

The celeb duo received lots of attention from the residents. Not only youngsters but women and children too came out on the roads to get a glimpse of the Bollywood diva and walked along her vehicle for around five hours raising slogans in favour of Amar Singh who accompanied them.

The roadshow began from Rohta crossing on Agra-Gwalior road, around 15 kilometers from Agra, when Amar Singh along with Sridevi and Boney Kapoor reached at around 12 pm.

They were welcomed by party workers and a handsome gathering.

From there the trio moved towards Shamshabad via, Itaura, Baad, Kurra Mod, Tehra, Rajpura and Iradat Nagar on an open vehicle.

At Kurra-Chittarpur, supporters from Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) showed black flags to Amar Singh and raised slogans in favour of Narendra Modi.

Taking a break in between, Sridevi and Boney Kapoor took rest for around half-an-hour at the house of a supporter Munesh Kumar Gupta in Iradat Nagar.

The huge crowd that gathered with the road show led to traffic jam on main road in Iradat Nagar for around 45 minutes till the fleet left for Shamshabad.
