Why do they join politics?They are filthy rich. They are very popular among common masses. They are very influential. Almost all of them do possess almost everything except wisdom and political acumen. Then why do they join politics?
I am talking about the film-stars. In the south, this trend has been visible since the seventies. In north India also, the film-stars join politics but in lesser number. Bengal was earlier free from these film-star-turned-politicians, but nowadays hordes of past and present film-stars are joining ruling TMC. They are becoming MPs and MLAs, don't contribute much either administratively or politically. On the contrary, they often embarrass their own parties by nonsensical comments.
My question is: Why do these film-stars join politics? What do they expect to get by joining politics except brickbats?
