Rani Mukherji's question on why she should go to Khandala took a political twist when Press Information Bureau (PIB) on Sunday, recreated the 'Aati kya Khandala moment' of the hit movie Ghulam.
The post features Aamir Khan asking Rani 'aati kya vote karne (Will you come to vote)?' to which Rani answers 'kya hoga mere vote karne se (What will happen if I vote?). Explaining the consequence of voting Aamir says, ' Vote karenge, duty nibhayenge , future chunenge aur kya (We will vote, fulfill our duty and change the future, what else?).'
In the previous phase, PIB had urged voters to march to the polling booth sharing a picture from the movie Lagaan featuring the famous song 'Baar Baar haan'. The picture shows the Lagaan cricket singing "Baar baar haan, vote yaar haan . Koi kitna bhi bahekaave, chale chale. Koi humko rok na paaye, Vote Karo." (Every time, we will vote. How much ever one tries to influence us, we will keep voting. No one would be able to stop us from voting.)
A few weeks ago, PIB had recreated a spin to the popular dialogue "Tumse na ho payega" from Gangs of Wasseypur 2, instead saying "Beta tumse ho jayega" (Child you can do it)! adding "Vote dene ka maan banaye ho toh lacchan thik hai tumhare ( If you have decided to vote, then your behaviour is fine)"
Voting is currently underway in 59 constituencies across six states and one union territory votes to seal the fate of 979 candidates namely - 14 seats in Uttar Pradesh, 10 in Haryana, eight seats each in West Bengal, Bihar and Madhya Pradesh, seven in Delhi and four in Jharkhand.
