Bollywood actor Swara Bhasker joined Rahul Gandhi's Bharat Jodo Yatra in Madhya Pradesh's Ujjain on Thursday and asked others to be part of the Yatra.

The official Twitter handle of the Congress shared a picture of both walking along during the Yatra. "Today famous actress @ReallySwara became part of #BharatJodoYatra. The presence of every section of the society has made this yatra a success," the tweet read.
