Arvind Kejriwal's AAP is not getting veteran actor Anupam Kher boost after all. Kher has brushed away rumours suggesting he is joining politics.
The 58-year-old actor said that he is happy working in the film industry and is not contesting elections as a candidate of the Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party.
"A worried producer called me to ask if I am contesting elections as an AAP candidate, so what about his shooting. To clarify: I am not," Kher posted on Twitter.
"Whosoever is spreading this rumour that I am contesting elections should calm down. I am happy belonging to the world of movies," he tweeted.
Kher, however, said that raising his voice as a citizen on issues is important but he could do that without getting into politics.
"As a concerned citizen it is important to raise voice about the issues that bother you. But I don't need a political platform for that," he tweeted.
