Now Advani is Bollywood's lucky charm

New Delhi: Politics may have enough drama, but even politicians need that extra dose of it from Bollywood. L K Advani has always been a huge movie buff and this time, Ajay Devgun and Kajol invited him to a special screening of their movie U, Me aur Hum.

So is Advani a film critic or a lucky charm? Whatever he may, the veteran politician and probable future Prime Minister does appear to be the flavour of the season for Bollywood.

"Advaniji likes good films. He began his career as a film critic. He loves good films, he loves good theatre and today, he loved this movie.,” said BJP Spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad.

Advani had also attended a special screening of Taare Zameen Par, hosted by Aamir Khan some time ago.

“It’s the first time I think I saw Advaniji crying," Aamir had said.

As for Ajay Devgan’s directorial debut, here's what Advani thought;

“In all, I liked the film. I thought it's a film that would a very good impression on the mind,” he said.

But enough about premiers; how about L K Advani acting in a movie?

“If the role suits him, I don't think he'd have a problem doing it,” stated BJP leader Sushma Swaraj.

Bollywood has always taken its prints to Tirupati for some blessings but Advani’s aashirwad also seems to work just fine as after Aamir Khan and TZP Ajay and Kajol have come here. But will their movie work? They’ll have to wait and watch.
