Actors Aamir Khan, Sabana Azmi, Farhan Akhtar, Kangana Ranaut, filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar and several other celebrities on Monday at polling stations in Mumbai to cast their vote in the fourth phase of the Lok Sabha elections.
Actor Aamir Khan and his wife Kiran Rao cast their vote at St Anne's High School. Aamir Khan urged people to come out in big numbers and vote.
Kangana Ranaut also urged people to make use of the day and cast their vote.
Ranaut said: "The political leaders used to chill in London and the country used to suffer from an array of issues like poverty, pollution, rapes etc. The situation in our country was worst when Congress was in power. Now that our time has come, we should vote in large number."
Sabana Azmi and husband Javed Akhtar also exercised their franchise. Azmi said: "I was in Begusarai. From Begusarai I went to Los Angeles. I was in Los Angeles for just 2 hours and now I am here, just to cast my vote because it is necessary. I want to urge people to cast their votes because it is important."
Actor-singer Farhan Akhtar said: "It is a very important day and I just encourage people who are watching me via your TV channels to please go out and vote. This is the day when people get a chance to decide about the kind of government they want."
Filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar also exercised his right. He said, "I feel that everyone should vote. The day comes once in five years. People should come out and vote whosoever they want to. Voting is important for democracy and we should vote for the strong and good government."
"Voting is my right and we have got it after a lot of many struggles and I definitely want to use it," said actor Sonali Bendre.
