After addressing a gathering in support of the party candidate in Cantonment area in Lucknow, the celebrities headed towards Hardoi, where they campaigned for TC nominee Anoop Chowdhury.

Donning traditional salwar-kurta, the two stars tried to strike an emotional chord with the masses during a roadshow in Kachauna in Hardoi and appealed them to vote for Trinamool Congress.
