BJP has been relying on the Cine Glamour like never before for 2019 Lok Sabha Polls. MP Tickets were offered to Hema Malini, Jayaprada and Suresh Gopi already. In the fresh list released by BJP Leadership, Candidature of Popular Bhojpuri Star Ravi Kishan has been confirmed.
Considering his popularity among Bhojpuris, The Saffron Party fielded Ravi Kishan in Gorakhpur Lok Sabha Constituency.
Gorakhpur Constituency is known to be the bastion of UP CM Yogi Adityanath. Yogi represented this segment until he was elevated as UP Chief Minister. However, BJP faced defeat in the by-election following the resignation of Yogi Adityanath. SP Leader Pravin Nishad who emerged victorious came back to BJP but he was fielded in Sant Kabir Nagar Constituency this time.
Ravi Kishan has done several Telugu Films in the recent years. The role of Maddali Siva Reddy in 'Race Gurram' earned him good recognition. He never looked back thereafter and featured in several straight Telugu films since then.
