Supriya Sule, the working president of the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), has drawn a striking comparison between party leader Ajit Pawar and the legendary Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan, dubbing him the “Amitabh Bachchan of Maharashtra politics.”
Sule’s remarks were prompted by an open invitation extended by Deepak Kesarkar, the School Education Minister and a leader of the Shiv Sena (Shinde), urging Pawar to align with the ruling coalition in the state. Sule praised Pawar’s exceptional leadership skills, highlighting his efficiency and effectiveness.
She emphasized that Pawar is in high demand in the political sphere, with everyone seeking his presence, much like Amitabh Bachchan’s irreplaceable presence in movies. Sule drew parallels between Pawar’s influence and the allure of Bachchan’s voice, photo, appearance, and autograph, all of which hold significant value. With this comparison, Sule aims to underscore Pawar’s stature and indispensability in Maharashtra politics, akin to Bachchan’s iconic status in the world of cinema.
