Every time the nation is in the grip of an election fever, rumours abound that Shah Rukh Khan will be one of the contestants in the political fray and that the Congress party, with which SRK has close contacts with, is giving him a ticket. Shah Rukh Khan's close association with the Gandhi family is known to all, both his deceased father and mother were political figures and they belonged to the Congress Party. The younger generation of the Gandhi family, Priyanka and her husband Robert Vadera and Rahul Gandhi are good friends of SRK and have shown their fondness for King Khan by being there for him whenever needed. The IPL match featuring SRK's premier league, Kolkata Knight Riders saw the three of them coming all out in support of Khan's team by being present on the field to cheer SRK's team.

CHECK OUT: SRK soon to start his work again

However, what may come as a surprise to many is that Shah Rukh Khan has equally close associations with the former Bhartiya Janata Party President and ex-Prime Minister of India, the charismatic Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee. SRK reveals that he is good friends with Mr. Vajpayee's foster daughter, Namita and keeps in contact with her regularly in order to inquire about the health of the ailing ex-PM. He emotionally adds that his father used to take him (when he was just a child) to the INA Market (in New Delhi) to make him hear Mr. Vajpayee's speech, as his father felt that Mr. Vajpayee had excellent command over Hindi and was a powerful orator. And he felt that SRK would learn from the great man. He further discloses that Mr. Vajpayee used to be very fond of films and that he used to make special arrangements and hold special shows of his film in Delhi for Shri Vajpayee which he used to enjoy thoroughly. And even at times when Vajpayee did not like a film, he used to praise it so that no one would feel bad!

Well, Bollywood's global super star, Shah Rukh Khan is too apolitical to join politics and India needs politicians like Atal Bihari Vajpayee which are far and few in between. So, film stars turned politicians like Sanjay Dutt, Govinda and Jaya Prada etc. have an idol like Mr. Vajpayee to emulate and make India stronger and prosperous.
