We love our movie stars, and they know it only too well.

That is why, many of them hope to convert their star power into votes when they join politics.

But can reel stars be real leaders? For example, Govinda's Mumbai North contituency barely saw any positive change with him as an elected leader. And just how much do stars in Parliament contribute to the country's decision-making?

Would you like, say, a Sanjay Dutt or a Chiranjeevi to make important decisions that affect your life?

Do you think cinematic success translates to political success? Can stars make good politicians?

Tell us what you think!
