New Delhi, May 18 (TIWN): Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, on Friday, 17 May, dubbed Narendra Modi an "actor" and said Amitabh Bachchan would have been a better choice for the prime minister's post.

In another Bollywood reference, she likened Modi to Asrani's character in Bachchan-starrer Sholay.
 
"Prime Minister Modi is not a leader, he is an actor. It would have been better if Amitabh Bachchan was made the prime minister," she said at an election meeting at the end of her roadshow in Mirzapur.
 
In Gorakhpur, she asked the crowd, “Have you seen the ‘Sholay’ movie and Asrani's role in it? He used to always say ‘angrezon ke zamane mein’ (in the time of the British).”
 
“And in the same way Modi ji talks about Jawaharlal's work, Indira Gandhi's work and Rajiv Gandhi's work. Why doesn't he talk about his work in the last five years?” she said.
