1: Ajay Devgn
With Narednra Modi sweeping the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, he’s set to become the new Prime Minister of India. With a new government, comes new canibet ministers who wil lwork in tandem with Mr. Modi. Hypothetically, If Bollywood celebs could be a part of his circle, it would be interesting to see which actors get what protfolio. We list down B-town celebs who would be suitable for the following positions in Mr. Modi’s new government. Ajay Devgn as Defence Minister- From early on in his career, Ajay Devgn has always loved doing action films and is the stunt hero of Bollywood. So we think he’s apt for this position. With his stunt sequences in films like Singham, the actor can surely protect the nations form being vulnerable. India has a history of being attacked and Ajay Devgn with his no nonsense attitude, will ensure the citizens’ safety and fight off the thugs too if needed. India will be in safe and stronger hands so no one can suit this position better. Also with films like The Legend of Bhagat Singh and Satyagraha, he’s proved his patriotism. Hands on Ajay Devgn should be selected!
2: Aamir Khan
Aamir Khan as Minister of Justice and Empowerment- Aamir Khan has always maintained that he will not join politics. He got embroiled in a controversy when he supported the Narmada Bachao Andalon and he’s made sure he steers away from any political parties. But if he had to join Mr. Modi’s government, we think he would be best suited as the Minister of Justice and Empowerment. In his debut TV show Satyamev Jayate, Aamir highlighted the alarming issues plaguing society, often considered taboo and little did he know that his show would break all records to be the most appreciated nonfiction show on TV. When the first episode of Satyamev Jayate season 1 aired on TV, everyone was curious about what Aamir would talk about on his debut show on TV. And he surprised everyone when he spoke about female foeticide. That particular episode broke all TRPs and became a topic of discussion on all social networking sites and also on micro blogging site Twitter. That particular episode made the government sit up and Aamir appealed to the masses to unite and requested the Govt. of Rajasthan to set up a special court for speedy trials for female feticide cases that have been pending in different courts of the state over the years. Then there were topics like Child sexual abuse, Dowry system in India, Medical malpractice, Physical Disabilities, Love marriages and Honour killings in India, Domestic Violence, Casteism and Untouchability to name a few.
3: Yash Chopra
Chopras as Minister of Tourism and Culture- Yash Chopra was the man who made Indian movie goers dream about foreign locales. And it was his classic film Chandni that started his romance with the tourist destination Switzerland. The late film maker transformed the movie going experience by showing the Swiss Alps and the lush meadows. This Chopra tradition was carried out in many other of their films including, Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge, After that, Switzerland became a hit tourist spot for Indians, In fact, he was honoured by the Swiss Government for rediscovering Switzerland and was presented a Special Award by Ursula Andress on behalf of the Swiss Government. His sons Aditya Chopra and Uday Chopra carry the legacy forward. Uday is already handling the Hollywood division of YRF and was at Cannes recently to walk the red carpet along with Nicole Kidman for their film Grace of Monaco. Hence, the Chopra brothers can be apt for this portfolio. Since they love exotic locales and Uday already has his reach in the United States, they will do an excellent job of promoting tourism and culture of India, In DDDLJ, Punjab was promoted well and the Chopras love showing all things Punjabi in their movies. They can extend this experience to other states through their position in the government and simultaneously through their films. It will be a job well done.
4: Arjun Kapoor
Arjun Kapoor as Food and Agriculture Minister- Everybody knows what a foodie Arjun Kapoor was and is! His fluctuating weight is proof. Although the actor, under the guidance of Salman Khan lost almost 50 kilos, still considers himself to be a foodie. Although diet restrictions are imperative in the field of acting, but Arjun will suit this profile the best. Since he has a keen interest in food, he will be able to track the nation’s food output and ensure rules and regulations and laws relating to agriculture in India are maintained. Since agriculture is the main source of income for a majority of this country’s population, Arjun will show a keen interest in agricultural produce. He will also get to learn a little bit more on about food and grains. Everytime he thinks of over eating, he will refrain himself and think of the nation’s hungry.
5: Shahrukh Khan
Shahrukh Khan as Railway Minister- No one can promote railways better than King Khan. From dancing atop a train in Chaiyya Chaiyya to giving a helping hand to Kajol chasing a train in Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge, SRK is perfect for this job. Even in his latest film Chennai Express, a large chunk of it was shot on a train and the song Lungi Dance had a train as prop. SRK’s film Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenege also had some interesting scenes on the train so who better than the badshah of Bollywood? He will be responsible for the country’s rail transport and sort out a rail budget. We are sure SRK will be better than Lalu Prasad Yadav!
6: Mallika Sherawat
Mallika Sherawat as Minister of Foreign Affairs-Whatever this woman does, becomes headlines! Whether it’s her red carpet appearances at Cannes or her blunder statements (to Variety magazine) where she said she was the first to kiss on screen in India, well Mallika certainly knows how to promote herself. So if she is given this portfolio, she will promote inter country relationships very well. Mallika loves to talk in her LA accent and claims she is a name in Hollywood. She was also in the news for partying with Hollywood heartthrob Antonio Banderas and made sure it was talked about in India. In the same way, she can ensure that India is on the global map and the way she loves to flaunt her sexiness, the actress can surely get all the work done! Since people also love her in Hollywood, how can the rest of the world not love her once she becomes the Minister of Foreign Affairs? Mallika will make the country shine!
7: Salman Khan
Salman Khan as Human Resources Minister- Sallu bhai is apt for this profile and the portfolio should only go to him. Salman has a talent of finding the hidden gem in people and gives them that extra boost to their career. Right from Katrina Kaif, Sneha Ullal, Sonakshi Sinha, Sana Khan, Isabel Kaif, Suraj Pancholi, Zarine Khan, the list is just endless. With the Human Resources Development portfolio under him, Salman will do a great job of looking into school education and literacy. He loves children and is known for his heart of gold and philanthropic work. Salman will also work well with Mr. Narendra Modi since the two met at the Uttrayan festival in January this year. With all the setting done, Salman can also promote his Being Human brand. Salman will certainly make an impact on the education system in this country and perhaps even lighten the burden of children, since he loves them so much. Maybe the syllabus of the country can have a course on how to be Salman Khan.
8: Kareena Kapoor
Kareena Kapoor as Information and Broadcasting Minister- Responsible for formulation and administration of the rules and regulations and laws relating to information, broadcasting, the press and films in India, who better than Kareena Kapoor Khan to suit this profile? The pretty actress is known to inform and broadcast all the information and gossip within the film industry and knows all the latest happenings. Many celebs who have come on celebrity chat show Koffee With Karan have said that Kareena is a gossip queen who knows what is happening with everyone. Bebo will also be responsible for the Censor Board of India which is responsible for the regulation of motion pictures shown in India. If Kareena has it her way, then she will ensure that all films are passed and very few will be censored. Bebo will ensure that her friends’ films are always passed and that the media will have full freedom of speech, considering she played a journalist in Satyagraha. We are sure she understands the profession and the responsibilities that come with it.
9: Amitabh Bachchan
Bachchan family as Health and Welfare Minister-The Bachchans have known to be supportive of social causes and have always done their bit to make the difference. Starting with Abhishek, the junior Bachchan is the brand ambassador of Global Network of Neglected Tropical Diseases campaign ’END7’. The campaign aims to eradicate seven tropical diseases by 2020. Abhishek has also run a marathon to support girl child education. How can we leave his famous wife Aishwarya behind? Ash is the Goodwill Ambassador for UNAIDS. Aishwarya has also pledged to donate her eyes and encourages organ donation. Next up is Big B, who has always been a conscientious citizen and his support for UNICEF`s Pulse Polio campaign had a huge impact on the country, eradicating polio to a large extent in India. He was also the face of ‘Save Our Tigers’ campaign that promoted the importance of tiger conservation in India. As the host of Kaun Banega Crorepati, he’s promoted different themes through the seasons including the latest, “Sirf gyan hi aapko aapka haq dilata hai”. All his efforts are truly lauded. So the Bachchans are best suited for the portfolio. At one time in his career, Amitabh Bachchan had also stood for elections, going on to win them. Though the actor does not like the field in particular, we think he would make a fantastic politician.
10: Mahesh Bhatt
Mahesh Bhatt as Law and Justice Minister- The producer and director is perhaps one of the most vocal personalities in Bollywood. Whether it is talking about the face of cinema in India, or his personal life or the need for a secular government, Mahesh Bhatt is the first to speak up. So this portfolio should be certainly given to him. He’s also a good orator and will do full justice under this position. He will look after India’s administration of legal affairs, justice and legislative affairs. The citizens of India can expect full justice. All the causes that he believes in and speaks so strongly about, he will ensure he will draft all the bills so that they can be introduced to the Parliament
