BJP MP from Mathura Hema Malini on Thursday said she can become the chief minister anytime but would rather be free to pursue other interests.
“If I want to I can become that in a minute, but I don’t like to be tied up. My freedom of movement will end,” she said when asked if she would become the CM if she got the chance.
The apparent reference was to the post in Uttar Pradesh, now held by her party’s Yogi Adityanath.
She said she got to become an MP because of her film career.
“I am known mainly because of my name in Bollywood, call it ‘dream girl’ or Hema Malini,” she said referring to one unforgettable role.
