Thanks to the star-spangled nominations by top political parties, West Bengal is set to witness a Bollywood extravaganza during election campaign.

Music composer Bappi Lahiri, who is contesting the Lok Sabha polls on a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) ticket, is likely to bring in Bollywood superstar Salman Khan and melody queens Lata Mangeshkar or Asha Bhosle for campaigning.

The "Disco King" expressed a desire to turn his constituency -Sreerampur in Hooghly district - into a tourism hub. Now, the area will also get a chance to up its glamour quotient.

According to Lahiri's campaign manager Krishna Bhattacharjee, Salman has given his assent.

"Bappi da has said that Salman Khan has relayed to him that he will come. But nothing is confirmed. Lata or Asha may also come," she told IANS Wednesday.

Bhosle has churned out many hits with Lahiri, including evergreens like "De de Pyaar de" and "Jawaani Jaanemann" that topped charts in the 1980s.

He also has close links with Bollywood bigwigs, including Salman and Hrithik Roshan.

Fielded from Bankura in North 24-Parganas district, former film actress Moon Moon Sen, daughter of the late Bengali screen icon Suchitra Sen, hit the campaign trail recently and her star-power has successfully managed to draw crowds.

It remains to be seen whether fan-following can translate into bankable votes.
