Since the day Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut joined politics, she has been dominating headlines. Recently, an image of her partying with a man circulated on Instagram, and a few claimed that the man in the picture is none other than gangster Abu Salem. This news spread like wildfire. Now, finally, Kangana has put all these rumours to rest as she clarified that the person in the picture is not a gangster but a former journalist.

While sharing the picture on her Instagram, Kangana clarified and said, "Desperate Congress officials are spreading this picture with the caption that I am partying with gangster Abu Salem. This is utterly disrespectful to journalist Mr. Mark Manuel, who is the ex-entertainment editor of the Times of India. He is not Abu Salem, and this picture is from one of the film promotion event parties."

Kangana Ranaut's Election:

Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut has officially taken the plunge into politics. The Bharatiya Janata Party's 5th list of candidates for the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections features Kangana's name alongside 111 other candidates. Kangana Ranaut will be contesting her first-ever election from her hometown of Mandi in Himachal Pradesh. Soon after the list was announced, Kangana Ranaut made her first media appearance where she wished the audience a happy Holi and talked about her decision to contest the elections. Addressing a public meeting on April 4, Kangana Ranaut said that the BJP is not run by the leaders but by its workers.

"This is the election of Prime Minister Modi. If you vote for Kangana, it will go to PM Modi. There should not be any shortage in our area. I have done some work in the film industry due to which I have got the name in the country and all over the world. I feel that till now I have not done anything that the people should elect me as their representative," she said.

Meanwhile, on the work front, the 'Chandramukhi' actress is all set to reunite with actor R Madhavan for an upcoming pan-India psychological thriller film. The film will be helmed by the "Thalaivii" director Vijay. R Madhavan and Kangana previously worked together in "Tanu Weds Manu" and "Tanu Weds Manu Returns".
