It is a unique election promise.
The Bharatiya Samajwadi Party candidate for Haryana's Mundhal assembly constituency has been, in his election campaign in the run-up to the February three assembly polls, promising the people jobs in the film industry.
Anup Tanwar, a small-time actor in Bollywood and who has also worked in many Haryanvi films, said, "For the last 15 years, I have been working in movies and I know that there is no dearth of openings in the film industry."
He said there was a need not only for actors but also for people to work behind the scenes, for example as technicians.
Citing unemployment as one of the biggest problems in the constituency, the BSP candidate, who hails from the area, said he was willing to help the youth of Mundhal to find work in the film industry.
"I have not come here as a political leader but as a social worker. I want to help people," the 37-year-old candidate said.
About his own career, Tanwar said he initially acted in Haryanvi films before making his Hindi debut in the Dev Anand-directed 100 Crore.
