The BJP has picked Bhojpuri superstar Ravi Kishan to contest from UP CM Yogi Adityanath’s home turf, Gorakhpur. And so, Ravi Kishan, who is famous for his bhojpuri catchphrases, is busy campaigning in the streets of Gorakhpur.

The Quint reached Gorakhpur to watch Ravi Kishan’s election special trailer as the superstar is all geared up to give his political performance.

Lights, Camera, Questions!

Are you trying to lure voters by speaking in Bhojpuri?

Why shouldn’t I speak in Bhojpuri when its my mother tongue and my identity? When a Punjabi man speaks in Punjabi, Gujarati people speak in Gujarati, so as a Bhojpuri man, should I be speaking in French?

Politics is different from acting, how prepared are you for elections?

In politics, one doesn’t have to do anything. Politics moulds you, instead. All you need to do is devote yourself to it and keep treading the path it is showing you.

The BJP lost Gorakhpur in the 2018 by-elections...

People are now regretting seeing the BJP defeated in Yogi Adityanath’s home turf. This is the BJP’s stronghold. This time, the BJP is going to win.

In 2014, BJP leader Ravi Kishan contested from UP, from Congress’ Jaunpur seat, which he lost. He then followed in the foot steps of fellow actor Manoj Tiwari and joined the BJP.
