Not contesting Lok Sabha elections, says Salman Khan

Superstar Salman Khan on Thursday denied that he was campaigning for a political party or contesting himself in the coming Lok Sabha elections. "Contrary to the rumours, I am not contesting elections nor campaigning for any political party...", Salman tweeted after his previous tweet led to speculation that he is campaigning for the Bharatiya Janata Party.

Earlier in the day, the "Sultan" actor retweeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi's tweet, urging people "to exercise your right (to vote) and participate in making the Government".

On March 13, Modi, on Twitter, requested several actors including Salman and Aamir Khan to "inspire and motivate youth in your own andaz (style) to vote so that we can strengthen democracy and our country".

The Lok Sabha elections are scheduled in seven phases from April 11 to May 19. The results will be announced on May 23.

On the professional front, Salman Khan was last seen in Remo D-Souza’s Race 3 and has recently wrapped up the shoot of his next Bollywood film Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bharat. The film is an official adaptation of a Korean film ‘An Ode To My Father’ and also stars Katrina Kaif, Jackie Shroff, Nora Fatehi, Disha Patani, Sunil Grover in important roles. Produced by Atul Agnihotri and Bhushan Kumar, ‘Bharat’ will hit the theatres on Eid this year.
