Sanjay is not new to electoral politics – he was a Samajwadi Party candidate for the Lucknow Parliamentary constituency in 2009 but had to withdraw after the court refused to suspend his conviction under the Arms’ Act. He was later appointed as the general secretary for Samajwadi Party but Sanjay resigned from the post and subsequently quit the party.
Earlier this month, Salman Khan also put an end to all speculations of him entering the political arena and tweeted, “Contrary to the rumours I am not contesting elections nor campaigning for any political party.”
On the work front, Sanjay will be seen in two period dramas – Kalank and Panipat.
