Azhar is in the limelight again. Some days ago, loud pleas were made by Congress MPs for the ban on Azharuddin to be lifted.
More recently, on Sunday, a party was thrown in his honor at the JW Marriott by Videocon's Aniruddha Dhoot and Venugopal Dhoot. The party was to celebrate Azhar's recent success in electoral politics. Azhar was elected from the Uttar Pradesh constituency of Moradabad by a margin of over 49,000 votes! He joins the likes of Kirti Azad and Navjot Sidhu - both cricketers were also elected to the parliament this year.
But there were very few politicians in attendance on Sunday. Instead, Azhar was surrounded by the stunning beauties, cricketing greats and bollywood personalities.
Azhar has taken the time-tested formula to shore up his image - presence at entertainment events + ticket to the parliament! Ahead of the election, Azhar said he wants to serve the poor and is inspired by Rajiv Gandhi.
