Mumbai, March 25 -- Gneral elections are around the corner, and actor-turned politician Shatrughan Sinha is gearing up for some hard-core campaigning.
The Member of Parliament is contesting to secure his seat from the Patna Sahib constituency, as a member of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). And this time, he will have his son Luv with him while trying to encourage more people to vote for him.
"It's our duty to be there for him and with him. The support for the party is quite strong in India at the moment. Even in Bihar, we don't look out only for the party, but for our father too. Obviously, a win for him is a win for the BJP," says Luv, who will be by his father's side for the majority of the campaigning time. "I will have to come back to Mumbai for some commitments in between," he adds.
The Sinha family has its roots in Bihar, so Luv has an emotional attachment with Patna. "It's not only because my father is campaigning from here. As a family, we are very attached to the state and we stay aware about the political developments there. We all want to see Bihar progress and for things to get better for the people who live there," says Luv.
