Moushumi Chatterjee embraces Congress

After watching a string of beautiful actresses walk into the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), the Congress Friday recruited the former child-woman of Hindi movies, Moushumi Chatterjee.

The still beautiful and vivacious Chatterjee said joining the Congress was something she always wanted to do.

"I am a thorough, born Congress supporter - I have always believed in it and so has my family," said the 50-something actress, wondering how anyone could forget the 119-year-old party's role in India's freedom struggle.

Making many in the party happier than they have felt for some time as the Congress prepares for the April-May Lok Sabha battle, Chatterjee listed the qualities she liked in the Congress - idealism, unity and secularism.

"It is the only party that wants everyone to be united. I want all communities in India to get that assurance that they will be safe and prosperous."

The actress debuted in 1972 in the role of a blind beauty in the hit film "Anuraag" and earned instant fame.

She was the quintessential child woman whose infectious laughter and boisterous presence filled the screen, making her a coveted co-star of many successful heroes. She also worked in many Bengali films.

The Bengali actress carved a niche for herself in romantic comedies. But over the past two decades, she has gradually taken on more mature roles.

Chatterjee said historically, it was the Congress that had built the edifice of much of modern India.

"After all, what are most of today's political outfits but products of the Congress. People who sacrificed their lives for the nation were in the Congress. There can be no other party like it."
