As the trend of fielding cine artists in Kerala Assembly polls has become a talking point in the state, reports of more celebrity candidates are coming from the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) camp.
Malayalam actor Kollam Thulasi and director Rajasenan have been enlisted in BJP’s proposed candidate list. The list also features Karamana Jayan and Punchakari Surendran in Parassala and Neyyatinkara respectively.
Reports of BJP’s hopes to field former Indian cricketer S Sreesanth in Thrippunithura or Ernakulam had came out earlier on Tuesday. Unlike the past years, many actors will contest in the upcoming Kerala Assembly polls.
Jagadish and Siddique are expected to contest for the UDF, while Mukesh and Ashokan are the probables in the LDF’s list.
Though the CPM wanted to field actor KPAC Lalitha in Wadakkancherry, she bowed out from the contest citing health issues on Monday. However, all the fronts are yet to announce the final list.
