Here’s a look at beloved Bollywood stars who did not cast a vote in the fifth phase of Lok Sabha Elections 2024

On Monday several Bollywood stars stepped out to exercise their right to vote at the Lok Sabha Elections 2024, from soon-to-be parents Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh to Shah Rukh Khan and family. The list further includes Aamir Khan and his family, Salman Khan and his parents, Ranbir Kapoor, Akshay Kumar, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Amitabh Bachchan and Kiara Advani. But some beloved celebs were missed at polling booths. Here’s a look at who didn’t vote this year and why:

Katrina Kaif

Celebs who didn't vote in Lok Sabha Elections 2024

Actor Katrina Kaif is currently in London. Rumours suggest that she is gearing up to welcome her first baby into the world. But even if she was in India, she would not have been able to vote as she is a British citizen
