"Moon Moon, the daughter of Bengali screen icon Suchitra Sen, who passed away early this year, has also found a new fan-base."
By Subhash K. Jha

Mumbai, April 15 - Former Bollywood actress Moon Moon Sen's daughters Raima and Riya are to join their mother as the Trinamool Congress candidate from the Bankura Lok Sabha constituency goes on poll campaign.

Moon Moon says campaigning is a challenge.

My waking hours and my routine have changed completely. It's become a fight where I can't let down my mother, my daughters or myself. I wish you could see how difficult this is for me. We actors are supposed to be entertainers, said Moon Moon.

We've to ensure we entertain even while campaigning for elections because it's essentially the same people who come to see me in both the cinema theatres and public rallies. I find myself addressing the same film and Jatra - fans at my road shows, Moon Moon said.

Moon Moon, the daughter of Bengali screen icon Suchitra Sen, who passed away early this year, has also found a new fan-base.

A new section of supporters for me is the Adivasi community. I am very proud of the crowds who come to hear me. My party leaders are very surprised by the crowds that gather to hear me. I realise I belong to the film industry first, then to any political party. I hope my fan base translates into votes, she added.
