Bollywood stars who didn’t vote

It was quite unfortunate that the IIFA Awards 2014 coincided with 6th phase of the Lok Sabha Elections in India, which included the city of Mumbai where most Bollywood celebrities reside.

A few Bollywood stars who did take time to vote

While quite a few celebrities proudly showed off their inked finger, below is a list of some of the top celebrities who didn’t vote, along with the reason on why they didn’t.

  • Salman Khan and Jacqueline Fernandes: Currently shooting for their upcoming film KICK in Poland.
  • Hrithik Roshan: Had committed to perform at the IIFA Awards 2014 before the voting dates were announced. His parents Rakesh and Pinki Roshan did vote.
  • Kareena Kapoor: Will be performing at the IIFA. Prior commitment.
  • Saif Ali Khan: Will be hosting the IIFA awards ceremony.
  • Priyanka Chopra: “So unfortunate when scheduling keeps u away from some of d most important things.wish I could have been in india to exercise my most basic.. to vote as a citizen..kudos to all who did and the others who can make it.. Must..” she tweeted
  • Javed Akhtar and Shabana Azmi are known to stand up for social causes, but decided not to cast their votes as they had to attend the IIFA awards.
  • Anupam Kher: ”I had said yes to IIFA much before election dates were announced. But still I am SORRY for not voting. Hope I’ll be forgiven.” he tweeted.
  • Shahid Kapoor: Again, opted to go for the IIFA Awards.
  • Alia Bhatt: Can’t vote because she is a British passport holder and doesn’t have Indian citizenship.
  • Anil Kapoor, Sonakshi Sinha, Divya Dutta, Richa Chadda, Imtiaz Ali, Malaika Arora Khan and several others: In the USA for IIFA Awards.

It’s worth mentioning that a few celebrities stayed back to cast their votes and then left for the IIFA Awards. Farhan Akhtar, the co-host of the IIFA Awards, did cast his vote before he left.

Lyricist Prasoon Joshi tweeted “The nation takes precedence over everything else. I’m going for IIFA too but only after voting… Can’t just do armchair criticism, many in Bollywood aren’t responsible”



  • @indicine: i saw a pic of hrithik in fb where he showed his inked finger and that admin of page wrote that hro has voted today. I don’t know whether u’re right or not.

  • Hritik hasn’t reached the IIFA spot yet.first he voted and then left for iifa. Also,his parents have voted which shows their goodness.
    By the way it’s okay that they couldn’t vote as they were already committed to some other work. Not their fault.

  • @taylor swift:i agree wid u . They can’t be blamed for that as they were commited already in iifa.

    Btw,I will vote in next election.

  • @nipin senior You easily confused it seems these days ever since ‘nipin junior’ arrived on the scene…!

    @babaji ki lungi Imran Khan…? Who cares about him or his voting preferrnces. Next you will be wanting to know if Sunny Leone has US citizenship or Canadian Citizenship…? Okay if you really want to know then ask ‘nipin senior’ as hes an expert on that particular subject.

  • SRK is the richest guy in Bollywood yet he doesn’t show off so much like others who are no where near him (in terms of money) comes in a simple jacket and jeans… While ajay devgun, Sonali,preity n all came up wearing expensive clothes, nice costly sunglasses… SRK is a down to earth person

  • @pravin, you are that akki i know. you fool get lost from here you piece of ignorant crap. salman khan also didn’t vote and he is simply shooting for his movie but no one will point fingers to him as he is a khan. such biased society i have never seen. this is the reason india is still not a developed country

  • @pravin:
    i am not a hritick fan and i am not defending nipun either. But honestly speaking, your comment doesn’t make any come they lost their money in kris3? it did 244 crores and even if we see boxofficeindia,it was a blockbuster. So if a film is bb,how will it lose money?btw,money seeker word is applicable for your srk who attends all award functions.

  • ön dis site many hrithik haters are placed i think , everyone gotta jealous on him… Well as i know @indicene Hrithik comes in morning to caste his vote yesterday nd he weared sky blue t-shirt, and then he leave to went @ Tampa

  • PPl shdnt make a hullabo of this..
    Its not the case that they didnt voted.. Its bcoz they cant.. !!
    All wer respobsible citizens xcept our salma behan.. I remember he didnt cast his vote in the last elections too.. Campaigned foh bjp congress n shivsena… N urged everyone to vote n he himself didnt vote.. one shd inspire ppl by setting xamples demselves.. Such an irresponsible guy he is.
