Rakhi Sawant Contesting Polls; Here Are 7 More Indian Actresses Who Have Embraced Politics



For the not-so-politically-aware voters of north-west Mumbai, at least one name in the EVM must have looked pretty familiar. Yes, you guessed it - it was Rakhi Sawant. The multi-talented Rakhi contested the Lok Sabha polls from north-west Mumbai, on behalf of Rashtriya Aam Party, set up and funded by various businessmen of Mumbai. We call Rakhi multi-talented because other than being an actress, a dancer, a reality show participant and a self-touted social worker, politics is the new 'agenda' that has helped her hit the headlines. When asked about her qualifications in the nomination form, she had checked on illiterate, but this illiterate 'controversy' queen holds assets worth Rs 15 crore. However, she is not the first showbiz star to enter the political arena. Business Insider India takes a close look at seven famous female entertainers who have embraced politics for reasons best known to them.
