B-Town stars like Kareena Kapoor, John Abraham, Bipasha Basu, Ranbir Kapoor, Deepika Padukone, Sonam Kapoor, Shahid Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra, Imran Khan, Farhan Akhtar, Karan Johar and Katrina Kaif are getting together to star in a video that will encourage the young Indian to step out and cast his/her vote. The video is the brainchild of Karan Johar, Imran Khan, Mukul Deora (elder brother of Congress MP Milind Deora) and Tarun Mansukhani.
Dostana director Tarun Mansukhani, who will work on the video, said, "I am directing the video, Karan is the online producer while Mukul is the producer. The idea for the video came from Mukul and Karan and the biggest motivational factor has been Imran (Khan). He is taking this concept forward. Imran is a young, conscientious actor who has these thoughts about urging the youth to vote."

Incidentally, the Congress has announced that Bollywood actors Shah Rukh Khan and Preity Zinta will canvass for the party in the run-up to the Lok Sabha polls. Union Minister of State for Home, Sri Prakash Jaiswal, said that filmstars SRK and Preity will be given company by Govinda and Nagma in the campaign rallies and road shows.

This will mean a bit of a juggling act as SRK and Preity will also be busy with their IPL schedule.
