Jahan, who contested 17th Lok Sabha election from Basirhat constituency in West Bengal, won the seat with a huge margin against BJP candidate Sayantan Basu.

She had skipped oath-taking for Lok Sabha members on 17 and 18 June owing to her wedding festivities in Turkey.

Ever since her candidature had been announced by the TMC, the Bengali actress was subjected to trolling and hatred on social media for having no political experience or credentials to contest polls.
