Veteran actress Anju Ghosh on Wednesday joined India’s ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in an event held at Kolkata, West Bengal.

The party’s state president Dilip Ghosh handed over a BJP flag to the actress. However, she denied to speak when she was asked about her present citizenship, ANI reported.

Anju Ghosh is notable for her role in the 1989 film Beder Meye Josna, which made a record of being the highest grossing film in the history of Bangladeshi cinema.

In April, Bangladeshi star actor Ferdous Ahmed was forced to leave India after he campaigned for a candidate from the opposition All India Trinamool Congress party.

India’s Ministry of External Affairs cancelled his business visa and blacklisted the actor.
