New Delhi, July 27 (IANS) Actor-filmmaker Farhan Akhtar says he has been asked to join the advisory panel of the Trinamool Congress’ youth wing to give suggestions on cultural activities and clarified that he’ll not be involved in any in hardcore political activities.
“The Media has reported that I have joined the Trinamool Congress Youth Wing. The truth is that I have been asked to be a member on an advisory board for cultural activities, in my capacity as an actor/filmmaker,” Farhan wrote on his Twitter page.
“This is in my understanding, to be an apolitical board. I hope this will clear my stand on this decision once and for all,” he wrote.
West Bengal’s ruling Trinamool Congress has formed a youth wing to be led by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s nephew Abhishek Banerjee.
The youth wing has decided to conduct a membership drive across the country while roping in personalities like Farhan, tennis star Leander Paes and tech evangalist Sam Pitroda as advisors.
