Union shipping minister Shatrughan Sinha on Wednesday said there was still demand for his talents in the film industry but he had virtually bid goodbye to cinema in order to serve the country and its people.

"I have virtually said goodbye to the filmdom to serve the country though there is still demand for me in cinema even today," the cine star-turned-politician said at a BJP election meeting here.

Sinha said when he entered politics not many film actors were taking interest in political activities but now cine stars are making a beeline to become leaders.

Asking youth to back BJP and perform their moral duty towards development of the country, he said the young generation would have to play a significant role in nation building.

The country has made rapid strides under the leadership of Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee and BJP-led NDA should be again voted to power at the Centre to ensure speedy development in all spheres, Sinha said.
