Govinda returns to politics after 14 years of 'Vanvaas' and joins Shiv Sena


Bollywood actor Govinda returns to politics and joins Shiv Sena ahead of 2024 Lok Sabha polls


Bollywood actor and former Congress Lok Sabha MP Govinda today joined the Shiv Sena in the presence of Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde in Mumbai.

Govinda had emerged as a ‘giant killer’ in 2004 when, as a Congress candidate, he defeated BJP stalwart Ram Naik in the Mumbai North Lok Sabha seat.

Eknath Shinde welcomed the 60-year-old actor to his party and said he was a popular figure across all sections of society.

Speaking on the occasion, Govinda, who started his acting career in the 1980s, said after his first stint in politics from 2004 to 2009, he never felt like he would return to the same ground again.

“I am back (in politics) after a fourteen-year ‘vanvas’ (exile),” he noted.

Govinda said that if given the opportunity, he would work in the arts and culture sector.

Mumbai looks more beautiful and developed since Eknath Shinde became Prime Minister, he noted.
