Speculation about South’s popular actress Khushboo Sundar joining the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has intensified. Congress has given instructions to remove Khushboo as an AICC spokesperson with immediate effect. With this, it is believed that the actress can leave the Congress and join the BJP soon. Khushboo left DMK in 2014 and joined Congress.
Born on 29 September 1970, Khushboo started her career as a child artist from the Hindi film ‘The Burning Train’ (1980). She was a part of several Hindi films as a child artist. Khushboo was part of films like ‘Naseeb’, ‘Unclaimed’, ‘Kalia’, ‘Dard Ka Rishta’, and Bemisala. Later in 1985, he starred opposite Jackie Shroff in ‘Janu’. She also played a key role in the 1990’s Deewana Mujh Sa Nah, starring Aamir Khan and Madhuri Dixit.
However, Khushboo mainly acted in Tamil films and earned a lot of names. He has also acted in Malayalam, Kannada, and Telugu films. The 50-year-old has acted in more than 200 films in his career. During his career, he has worked with veteran actors like Rajinikanth, Kamal Haasan, Chiranjeevi, and many more. His popularity in the South is such that his fans have dedicated a temple to him.
In 2014, the South Indian film actress paused to join the Congress and said, ‘I have finally come to my house. Congress is the only party that can do good for the people of India and unites the country. ‘ However, the Congress neither gave him a Lok Sabha ticket in 2014 nor made him a member of the Rajya Sabha.
In a letter to the Congress President, he said, “Some elements are sitting at a high level within the party, who have no connection with ground reality or public recognition, they are giving orders”. Congress sources claim that she was angry after not getting tickets in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. In recent times, she was expressing a different opinion on some issues from the official stand of the Congress. A few months ago, he supported the new education policy, apart from the party’s stand.
“Khushboo Sundar is removed from the post of Congress spokesperson with immediate effect,” Pranab Jha, media in-charge of the All India Congress Committee, said in a statement. The actress said that after a long extensive “thought process” she has decided to end her relationship with Congress.
