Is Bollywood star Salman Khan a voter in historic city of Hyderabad? One may not readily answer with supporting evidence. But, yes he is a voter going by the voters` list of Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) – the 400-year-old civic body for which elections were being held on Tuesday.
Even as Tollywood stars Junior NTR, Nagarjuna and others appealed to people to come out and vote concerned over the low turnout, polling agents in Gowlipura were taken aback on finding the star’s photo in the voters list.
Srishailam, polling agent of Congress nominee in Gowlipura ward, was surprised to see the star’s name among the voters` list. Name of Salman Khan’s father was mentioned as Saleem Khan.
Even more shocking was the star’s age being mentioned as 64 years beside what appears to be his latest photo.
His Elector’s Photo Identity Card (EPIC) No. was YVO 1360395. On learning about it, media persons rushed to the division and clicked pictures of the list.
In next few minutes, the star’s photo in the list got circulated in WhatsApp and went viral on social media.
