Pakistan Election 2018: Amitabh Bachchan, Madhuri Dixit feature on PTI candidate's campaign poster

Be it bringing a lion to the streets of Lahore or sitting on a pile of garbage to eat lunch, Pakistan elections have featured the most interesting and amusing campaign tactics.

The year 2018 is no different. During an election propaganda, one of the candidates from cricketer Imran Khan's party used images of Bollywood superstars Amitabh Bachchan and Madhuri Dixit, along with the cricket bat symbol of Imran Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party in the middle, a report on India.com said.

The campaign poster features Bachchan and Dixit as they appeared during their golden days in Bollywood.

The poster featuring Amitabh Bachchan and Madhuri Dixit was put up by a candidate belonging to the party of PTI leader, Imran Khan. Twitter

Previously, Khan, the head of PTI, had accused India of trying to weaken the power of Pakistan, the report said.

But even though Pakistan might be quick to criticise its neighbour on all accounts, Bollywood is a source of entertainment even for the country which is at constant loggerheads with India.

According to many Twitter users, the poster, which went viral, first appeared in Multan, Punjab.

Twitterati from both nations got their share of amusement from the 25 July election campaigns in Pakistan.

While some have referred to the use of the film stars in elections as a regular Pakistan election campaign, others, in a witty take, have notified the stars that they are being used as faces of an election campaign.
