Nagma's next stop

It's now actress Nagma's turn to join politics


AMITABH BACHCHAN did it for his `brother' Amar Singh, Govinda did it for his pal Pandurang Patil and now it's Nagma who has joined politics to do something "for destitute children".

Nagma began her career in Hindi film Baghi opposite Salman Khan.

But why politics? "I am my own and like to do things I like. Politics is a better platform where I can raise issues on education and uplift minority communities."

But her move to politics does not mean that she is not getting any film offers. Nagma, who once dominated Tamil cinema, is now playing Big B's daughter-in-law and is heroine opposite Bobby Deol in Ab Tumhare Hawale Watan Sathiyo. She says: "Bobby is playing a double role in the film, when one dies, the other comes in."

Besides, she is doing a Bengali film, Porenaam, with veteran actor Victor Banerjee and also has a Bhojpuri film in her kitty. Butshe hasn't been able to resist the charm of Aamir Khan and Rajnikant."I would love to work with them," she gushes.
