Sachin as MP: Amitabh happy, Sanjay Dutt differs
Amitabh Bachchan has expressed happiness at the recent nomination of actress Rekha and cricket legend Sachin Tendulakar to the Rajya Sabha.
Mumbai: Megastar Amitabh Bachchan Saturday expressed happiness at the recent nomination of actress Rekha and cricket legend Sachin Tendulakar to the Rajya Sabha, while Sanjay Dutt was unhappy with Sachin becoming a parliamentarian.
"In each session of parliament, the president nominates few set of people for the Rajya Sabha from the fields of art, cinema etc. It is a very honourable position. Sunil Dutt's wife Nargis was also nominated. Whoever are nominated for this (Rajya Sabha) are deserving people," Amitabh told reporters at a press conference here.
Asked if being a Rajya Sabha member puts a burden on cricket and film personalities, he said: "It is their personal decision. Leave it to them." Meanwhile, Dutt, who terms himself to be a big fan of Tendulkar, is unhappy with him being a member of the Rajya Sabha.
"It is an honour to be in the Rajya sabha. I am a fan of Sachin. He is the pride and jewel of India. But, I am not happy that he is a Rajya Sabha member. He should have been the way he is," he said.
