Malayalam actor Neeraj Madhav has denied reports that say he will campaign for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the forthcoming Kerala Assembly Elections 2016. He has clarified that he doesn't have any intention to be part of any political party.
"A fake news has been doing rounds, featuring me endorsing a political party. I would like to dismiss this news as a piece of someone's imagination. With all due respect to every political party, I have strictly no intentions to be involved in any sort of political campaigning and neither do I support any parties," Neeraj posted on his Facebook page.
The report initially appeared on a Facebook page titled, "We love Sasikala Teacher." The page also contains posts showing actors Balachandra Menon, Gauthami Nair, Kaviyoor Ponnamma, Ranji Panicker and Praveena supporting the Narendra Modi-led BJP. The assembly elections will be held May 16, 2016 to elect members of the 140 constituencies in Kerala.
Meanwhile, Neeraj is working with Mohanlal in the Priyadarshan-directed "Oppam". The movie marks the reunion of Neeraj and the superstar after the blockbuster 2013 movie "Drishyam." Neeraj, who recently won the Kerala State Youth Icon Award, was last seen in John Varghese's comedy entertainer "Adi Kapyare Kootamani" with Dhyan Sreenivasan and Aju Varghese.
