"The 24-year-old said she was happy to cast her vote for the first time. Today we are not practicing. Its an election day for all, she said."
Hyderabad, April 30 - Popular Telugu comedy actor Brahmanandam is seen exhorting voters in advertisements to go out and vote but this brand ambassador of the Election Commission was in a shock Wednesday when he found his name missing from the voters' list.

The veteran actor and his wife Lakshmi Wednesday went to a polling centre in the posh Jubliee Hills but were surprised when the polling staff informed them that their names are not there in the voters' list.

The actor, who earned a spot in the Guinness World Records in 2007 for acting in 754 films in 20 years, had to return disappointed.

What do you want? One day celebration or five years happiness. Don't sell your vote for money, alcohol, gifts, says one of the advertisements featuring the 58-year-old actor.

Meanwhile, the other brand ambassador from Hyderabad cast her vote. Badminton star Saina Nehwal exercised her franchise at a polling centre in Gacchibowli neighborhood.

The Olympic medallist was roped in by the Election Commission last year as one of the youth icons to encourage young voters in 18-19 age bracket to register themselves.

The 24-year-old said she was happy to cast her vote for the first time. Today we are not practicing. Its an election day for all, she said.

We should vote to choose a right leader, who can govern the country properly, Saina said while urging all voters to exercise their democratic right.
