Dusky diva Bipasha Basu has become the latest Bollywood figure to have jumped on the Anna Hazare bandwagon.
At a time when the entire country is rallying behind Hazare, supporting the 74-year-old Gandhian's fight for a strong Lokpal Bill, the femme fatale, not to be left behind to relish the patriotic fervour, has also lent her support to the anti-corruption crusader.
"Our country should be free from the shackles of corruption, so I lend my support to the cause Anna Hazare is fighting for," said the bewitching beauty on the margins of a function here.
"Jan Lokpal Bill will surely make the difference in our society.
If it is introduced, we can curb corruption in a better manner.
"He (Anna) is one of the leaders whom we all can trust and follow.
He is a mass leader. We should all support him and the anti-corruption movements," said she.
So far, film personalities like Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, A R Rahman, Shabana Azmi, Shekhar Kapur, Sushmita Sen, Celina Jaitly, Shreyas Talpade and Shahid Kapoor have thrown their weight behind Hazare's movement against corruption.
Some celebrities took to social networking sites to express their support, while others like Anupam Kher and Farah Khan flew down to the capital to participate in the protest.
