Actors Who Turned Politicians

Entertainment and politics are the two major industries that are constantly creating a buzz in our country. While there are a lot of people who leave their profession to pursue acting, there are some who ended up leaving acting to get into politics. Funnily, these two industries have no connection whatsoever. But we have still seen a large number of people making switches from former to latter in the past few years. Here are some of our very own television and movie celebrities that decided to contribute to our country by working for the society, by being a part of the system.

Smriti Irani

After being known as Tulsi from Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi for over eight years, Smriti joined politics in 2003. In 2010, Smriti was also appointed as the All India President of the BJP Mahila Morcha.

Shatrughan Sinha

He may have been one of the most popular actors in the movies but the man has been an even better politician. Sinha heads BJP's Culture and Art wing.
