Anil Kapoor and Anupam Kher’s friendship has gone much beyond their decades-long professional collaboration. They have done many films together. However, Sonam Kapoor’s dad is not just very good friends with the Anupam, but also with his wife Kirron Kher. Actor turned politician, Kirron Kher is the sitting Member of Parliament and she represents Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) from Chandigarh. Anil gave the most energetic pitch for Kirron, by praising her ‘honesty and hard work’. Race 3 actor also revealed how she refused his movie offer so that it doesn’t deflect her attention for Chandigarh. The “beta” star has urged to vote for Kirron as, according to him, the civilians of Chandigarh ‘can not get a better MP’ than her.

In a video on a social media website, Anil Kapoor can be heard saying, “Kirron Kher is my friend. I know her for 35 years. And whatever Kirron has done till today, she’s done it with hard work, honesty, and intensity. Five years ago, she was fighting the elections from Chandigarh, I had even come to canvas for her”.

“I felt extremely happy when you all made her win with love. I even offered her a movie during that stage, but Kirron said, “Bhaiyaa Anil, I can’t do any film now; my full concentration is on the people of Chandigarh. Five years later, she’s contesting again, and I wish that you all make Kirron Kher win again because you can’t get a better MP than her from Chandigarh. Vote for Kirron Kher! Jai Hind!”
