Neha Sharma's father, Ajit Sharma, who is a Congress leader, has hinted at her entry into politics.

Speculation are rife that Bollywood actress Neha Sharma is likely to foray into politics in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.

Neha Sharma’s father, Ajit Sharma, who is a Congress leader, has hinted at her entry into politics.

Ajit Sharma, Congress MLA from Bihar’s Bhagalpur, said that both the party and he wanted Neha Sharma to fight the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections.

Sharma expressed his desire for Congress to clinch the Bhagalpur seat in the INDIA bloc’s seat-sharing talks. However, he also said that if the party wants him to fight, he will be ready for the role.

“The party (Congress) wanted my daughter, Neha Sharma, a Bollywood star, to contest in the Lok Sabha elections. I talked to her (about the same), but she remains very busy with various events and shooting,” Ajit Sharma told reporters.

He further added that Neha Sharma has also expressed her desire to fight the elections next time should the Congress party or her father ask her to do so.

Neha Sharma began her film journey in 2007 with the Telugu film Chirutha alongside Ram Charan, which was a big hit. She made her Bollywood debut in 2010 with Crook starring opposite Emran Hashmi.

She has since acted in multiple films, including Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 in 2013, and Tanhaji in 2020, among others. In 2020, she also made her OTT debut with the show Illegal.

She was last seen in Nawazuddin Siddiqui starrer Jogira Sara Ra Ra.

With over 21 million followers on Instagram, she is recognised for her travel content and has appeared in several successful Bollywood movies. Neha’s sister Aisha Sharma is also an actress and model.
