Different role

This minister was Salman's 'mom'

Minister-turned-film star, Bina Kak.

Kak, who had lost the assembly election in 2003 utilised her days away from the corridors of power by taking a role in Aziz’s movie which was released on Friday. Kak proved her mettle on the silver screen earlier through movies like ‘Nanhe Jaisalmer’, ‘God Tussi Great Ho’ and ‘Salam-e-Ishq’.  

Now that real life ministerial role will not allow her to take another plunge in a Bollywood venture, Kak will have to keep reel life at bay. She completed the movie just six months before the last assembly polls. In the movie, she plays an aunt whose niece’s dulha deserts her. She enjoyed working in the film which recreates the makeover of a rural orthodox Punjabi girl to get back her groom.

Kak is very close to the family of Salman Khan and played his silver screen mom in David Dhawan’s comedy ‘Maine Pyar Kyon Kiya’. Kak says during her stint as tourism minister, she will not accept any acting assignments. “I like to act but my commitments to the electorate are more important.”

Normally, celebrities from film world switch to politics, it is perhaps the only instance from Rajasthan where a woman minister appears on the silver screen, while still active in politics.
