Bharatiya Janata Party’s former MP and actress Hema Malini believes a candidate from a non-political background should be given preference during the country’s upcoming presidential election. “I think the president should be from a non-political background. He should be a highly-qualified person and only a very knowledgeable person should become the president,” the 63-year-old said. “It’s such a high position that to handle it, a non-political person should be preferred.
He’ll understand everything and will not be (in favour) for any political party,” Hema Malini added. Asked if she has any special tips for actress Rekha, now a member of the Rajya Sabha, Hema said: “Everyone learns themselves. Even when I went… no one teaches you. Everyone has to learn on their own. So, she will also learn it on her own.”
