Elections 2019: Sunny Deol Leads, Urmila Matondkar Trails While Lata Mangeshkar is Ecstatic

The many moods of Bollywood during counting day…. Sunny Deol is most likely to win while Urmila Matondkar is trailing

The minute it was clear that Bollywood had the only real electoral winner Sunny Deol, who contested on a BJP ticket, the phones would not stop ringing for the entire Deol parivar. Papa Dharmendra could barely hold back his tears.  “It’s all God’s blessings. I feel Sunny  will make a truly worthy successor to my dear  and much-missed Vinod Khanna in the  Gurdaspur constituency.” But  it was Asia’s resident nightingale Lata Mangeshkar who was most  ecstatic to see PM Narendra Modi back  in the saddle.

Says Lataji, “At  the risk of seeming politically motivated I had openly urged  the  Indian electorate to  vote for  Modiji. I have never done this  before, never made any  political comments. But I spoke to my fans  to  vote for Modiji.  I sincerely felt he was the best and the only candidate suitable for  prime ministership. Modiji has  the  strength  of will and  the determination to lead  the  nation forward. Today all  of us  in the Mangeshkar family are celebrating his  victory.”

When asked  if she would like to meet  Narendra Modi  to congratulate him personally Lataji says, “Jee haan main bilkul  milna  chahungi. What he has done is  no small  achievement. I’d like to  meet him and congratulate him  personally.”

While Modi supporters in Bollywood are rejoicing,  the  ones who openly opposed  the PM’s return to power are  in a sober and pensive mood. Specially wounded is old BJP loyalist-turned-Bollywood’s Congress-I candidate Shatrughan Sinha who was  sure of winning from his home constituency in Patna under the assumption that  his constituents would vote for him, no matter which political party he belonged to. Little did he know.

As for Urmila Matondkar, a brand new convert  to politics, she had hoped to  begin a new phase in her life via politics. But as one of her colleagues  comments, “Urmila’s intentions were right.  But she chose the wrong vehicle (the Congress I) for her aspirations.”
