Mimi Chakraborty and Nusrat Jahan to make their political debuts

The ruling party in West Bengal, Trinamool Congress, has announced its candidates for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. Mamata Banerjee's party won 34 seats in the 2014 polls. But this time around, the party is hoping for a clean sweep so that Mamata Banerjee gets to play an important role in the centre.

Nusrat Jahan will be contesting from Basirhat, which is widely expected to be a tough seat. Meanwhile, Mimi Chakraborty will be trying her electoral luck from Jadavpur, where the Left retains a significant vote bank.

Mimi Chakraborty shot to fame with the TV serial Ganer Oparey, where she won hearts of millions with her brilliant performance. However, her first big hit was the tragic Bojhe Na Shey Bojhe Na. With catchy songs and a really tragic ending, the movie caught the imagination of the masses.

 On the other hand, Nusrat Jahan is one of the most popular faces in today's Bengali entertainment industry. Originally hailing from Kolkata, she has done movies with big banners and top stars in her relatively short acting career. A former model, Nusrat did her first movie with Jeet in 2011. She has subsequently done movies like Crisscross, Bolo Dugga Maiki, Kelor Kirti, Har Har Byomkesh and Jamai 420. Reacting to her candidature, Nusrat said that it is a huge responsibility and that she is thrilled to have joined politics.
