Shilpa Shetty to campaign for British MP

Shilpa Shetty is reportedly one of a number of Indian actors expected to lend Bollywood glamour to British MP Keith Vaz's campaign trail.

The former 'Celebrity Big Brother' winner has known Vaz since he invited her to meet then Prime Minister Tony Blair at the House of Commons after she won the reality show
in 2007.

The 34-year-old actress had been the victim of racist bullying by other contestants, including the late Jade Goody.

Vaz is planning to dazzle voters in Leicester East with some Bollywood glitz and Shetty will contribute to it, reported The Telegraph.

"In India, Bollywood stars stand for parliament themselves. It will be lovely to see them bring a bit of razzmatazz to the campaign," said a member of Vaz's campaign team.
