Who can forget Anil Kapoor‘s scintillating performance as a journalist-turned-politician in his super hit film Nayak? It remains one of his career’s most iconic films. And looks like this particular fan of the actor is impressed beyond an explanation; so much that he suggested Kapoor to become the Chief Minister of Maharashtra. It’s been some days since the BJP-Shiv Sena alliance has won the Maharashtra polls, but the tussle of power between the two parties is on, and the new state ministry isn’t announced yet.
“Maharashtra mein jab tak koi rasta nahi nikalta, tab tak anil kapoor ko hi mukhyamantri bana kar dekh lete hain. Parde par unka ek din ka karyalay poore desh ne dekha aur saraha hai. Devendra Fadnavis aur Aaditya Thackeray kya soch hai? (Until we find a solution for Maharashtra, let’s make Anil Kapoor the Chief Minister. His one-day act [as a CM] has been witnessed and loved on the big screen by the entire nation. What say, Devendra Fadnavis and Aaditya Thackeray?),’ he wrote. Kapoor had a witty response to this. ‘I better be the ‘Nayak’ (actor) only,’ he wrote.

Nayak, also starring Rani Mukerji and Amrish Puri, was directed by S. Shankar and starred Kapoor as a TV journalist who puts up a brilliant show as the CM for a day and is later elected as one.
