BMC polls 2017: B-town turns up to vote, Varun Dhawan couldn't
Varun, who was in Jaipur to promote his film, Badrinath Ki Dulhania, reportedly flew to Mumbai only to cast his vote.
On the day of Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) polls, Bollywood celebs geared up well for it and many cast their ballot early in the morning. However, there were a few, like Varun Dhawan, who couldn't exercise their ballot.
Celebrities like Ranveer Singh, John Abraham, Shraddha Kapoor and Anushka Sharma have cast their votes, Varun Dhawan failed to do so because the voter list did not have his name.
This came as a huge disappointment to the actor, who told ANI, "it is upsetting that I couldn’t find my name on the voter list.”
“My name has not shown up on the list, unfortunately. It is bizarre because I voted last year. Will find out from EC where is my name,” he added. Varun, who was in Jaipur to promote his film, Badrinath Ki Dulhania, reportedly flew to Mumbai only to cast his vote.
Earlier, it was also reported that similar incident took place with Paresh Rawal. The actor-turned-politician, along with his wife Swaroop Sampat, stepped out to vote early in the morning but when he reached his voting centre he figured that his name was not on the voters’ list at that particular centre.
However, he marched out to find out where his name was registered so that he could cast his vote.
The voting for Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) elections 2017 began on Tuesday at 7.30 am. Filmmaker Zoya Akhtar, veteran actor Rekha, senior lyricist and film director Gulzar and film director Subhash Ghai were also among the early voters.
