Bollywood superstars Shah Rukh Khan and Akshay Kumar recently took to their social media handles to urge their fans to go out and vote in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections in India. The celebrities shared pictures of themselves with a message that emphasizes the importance of participating in the democratic process.

Shah Rukh Khan, who has over 38 million followers on Twitter, tweeted, PM sahib @narendramodi ne creativity ki liye bola tha. Main thoda late ho gaya video banane mein…aap mat hona Vote karne mein!!! ‘Voting is not only our Right, it is our Power.’ Please Use It. Thank u to @tanishkbagchi @abbyviral @parakramsinghr.

The actor’s tweet referred to a previous request from Prime Minister Narendra Modi asking Bollywood celebrities to inspire their fans to vote. In response, Shah Rukh Khan shared a video with a similar message. The star continued to urge his fans by saying voting is not just a right but also a power that can create a better future for everyone.

Akshay Kumar, who also has a massive following on social media, tweeted, The true hallmark of a democracy lies in people’s participation in the electoral process. Voting has to be a superhit prem katha between our nation and its voters. The actor added that he would be voting in Mumbai on April 29.

Several other Bollywood celebrities including Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan, Alia Bhatt, and Deepika Padukone have also urged their fans to vote in the elections.

India’s Lok Sabha elections are scheduled to take place from April 11 to May 19. The election will determine the composition of the lower house of parliament, where members are elected for a five-year term.

India is the world’s largest democracy, and the country has a long history of voter turnout. In the previous Lok Sabha elections in 2014, more than 550 million people cast their ballots, representing a 66.4 percent turnout.

The government has been making efforts to encourage citizen participation in the democratic process. In addition to seeking support from Bollywood celebrities, the Election Commission has launched several campaigns to encourage voter registration and turnout.

One such campaign is the Systematic Voters’ Education and Electoral Participation (SVEEP), which aims to increase voter awareness and participation by creating a culture of electoral participation. The program includes activities such as voter registration drives, education campaigns, and outreach events.

With celebrities such as Shah Rukh Khan and Akshay Kumar using their influence to encourage citizens to participate in the electoral process, it is hoped that voter turnout will continue to remain high in the upcoming elections.
