Anil Kapoor has a fun response.

Following the Maharashtra Assembly elections that took place on 21 October, a Twitter user on Wednesday said that Bollywood actor Anil Kapoor should become the Chief Minister of the state until a better option comes along.

The user wrote on Twitter, “Maharashtra mein jab tak koi rasta nahi nikalta, tab tak anil kapoor ko hi mukhyamantri bana kar dekh lete hain. Parde par unka ek din ka karyalay poore desh ne dekha aur saraha hai. Devendra Fadnavis aur Aaditya Thackeray kya soch hai? (Until we can find a solution for Maharashtra, Anil Kapoor should become the CM. Everyone loved his one-day onscreen performance as CM. What are Devendra Fadnavis and Aaditya Thackeray thinking?”


The tweet is referring to Anil Kapoor’s 2001 film Nayak: The Real Hero in which Anil Kapoor, who plays a TV journalist, becomes a CM for one day and tries to better society. Nayak stars Anil Kapoor, Rani Mukherji and late Amrish Puri. It is directed by S. Shankar.

Anil Kapoor’s response references this film. He wrote, “Main Nayak hi theek hu (I am better off as an actor only).”


Many fans replied in affirmative to Anil Kapoor’s tweet, others commended him for his performances in Nayak as well as his other films. One even said, “not bad idea.”

In the Maharashtra Assembly elections held on 21 October, the BJP-Shiv Sena alliance won a majority. Now, the parties are individually struggling to reach a compromise on what happens next.


Recently, Anil Kapoor held a Diwali party at his residence on 27 October. The Diwali bash saw Sonam Kapoor with her husband Anand Ahuja playing host too. Among the celebrity guests to arrive for the mega Diwali party were Shah Rukh Khan, Shahid Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan, Kareena Kapoor, Shraddha Kapoor and other actors. lso spotted were Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma.
