A friend in need of course a friend indeed.
Actress-turned-politician Nagma has requested the people of Tamil Nadu to remember the helping hand given by Karnataka when Chennai and a few other places were affected by floods in last year.
At a press meet, Nagma said that Tamil Nadu received a lot of help from Karnataka and especially from the people of Bengaluru. She also pointed out that her party will treat both the states equally.
Nagma (born Nandita Arvind Morarji is an Indian actress. She is better known for her roles in Telugu and Tamil movies like Killer, Gharana Mogudu, Kadhalan, Baashha and many others. She began her acting career in Bollywood and acted in a few of the biggest Bollywood movies but shifted down south before returning to Mumbai and continuing films in other languages. Nagma has acted in a broad range of India’s languages: Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada, Bengali, Bhojpuri, Punjabi, and Marathi.
A vocal supporter of India’s Indian National Congress, she had only formally become a member of the Congress Party in Delhi, reportedly citing its “commitment towards secularism and welfare of the poor and weaker sections” as her reason for joining.
She was also fielded by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), as a candidate from Hyderabad for the General Lok Sabha Elections.
Nagma has elsewhere been cited as saying that she first supported the Congress Party because of her admiration for Rajiv Gandhi. – CINEWS
