NEW DELHI Sept 17: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is planning to field about 70 celebrities for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.


The list includes eminent actors like Akshay Kumar, Mohanlal, Sunny Deol, Madhuri Dixit Nene and former cricketer Virender Sehwag.


“We are examining the possibility of fielding Akshay Kumar from the New Delhi Lok Sabha constituency.


Sunny Deol is also among the probables for the Gurdaspur Lok Sabha seats, which the BJP ceded to the Congress in the bypoll after the demise of Vinod Khanna.


Madhuri Dixit and Mohan Lal are also on the radar to contest from Mumbai and Thiruvananthapuram Lok Sabha constituencies respectively”, revealed a BJP leader.


Prime Minister Modi is also looking forward to field several professionals in the upcoming elections.


Political parties, including the BJP, have so far given electoral space to film personalities only. However in the 2014 elections the Trinamool Congress and the BJP had fielded a few health professionals.
