Is Preity Zinta serious about joining politics?

Mumbai, May 21 (IANS): Saddened by the current situation in the country, actress-businesswoman Preity Zinta is "thiking" about joining "politics" as she wants to be part of a movement to bring positive changes in India.

Currently busy promoting her first production venture "Ishkq in Paris", Preity said: "Off late, I have been thinking that I will join politics because it’s so sad what is happening to our country."

"I really want to be somehow involved in positively changing our country... One fine day (I) am going to come out and say vote for me,” she said on "Star Speak" on UTV Stars.

She has even made an imaginary picture of Priety Zinta, the politician.

She said: "I will be a very glamorous politician. I will have nice hair, nice clothes, and I will not be corrupt. But I think it’s important we start thinking about our country also because it’s really sad what is happening to our country. How much do you genuinely need to eat? 'Khaane ke liye aap biscuit hi khaate ho, gold biscuit to nahi khaate ho'. So, survival is limited to one point. How much more do you want?"

Having said that, she hopes that "people like me don’t have to get into a political future, because there are good people. There are lots of good politicians. Don’t get me wrong, but they are eclipsed by all the corruption. And the only way to make India shine is if all this stops. Because who is the one that is always the man on the street and that breaks my heart."

The 38-year-old actress is also the co-owner of the Indian Premier League (IPL) team King's XI Punjab.

The show will be aired Monday.

    I would ask Preity to start welfare work on war footing, that will benefit the common man, especially the poorer class.
    Show in deeds what you mean, much before joining politics, show that you are a truly non-corrupt person to the voters and a real doer too.
    Surely people will recognise your eforts and support you when you contest in election.
    Actions speak more than just mouthing promises in loud speeches.
