New Delhi: Anupam Kher feels his wife Kirron, BJP`s Lok Sabha nominee from Chandigarh, has the qualities to make a great politician and the veteran actor says he would "definitely" campaign for her.

"I am not associated with any political party. I have only campaigned once that was 25 years ago. But I have known Kirron since 1974. For many years she was my friend and she has been my wife for 28 years. If I campaign for anybody that would only be Kirron and I will definitely go,"

Anupam, who was in the city to promote his upcoming film `Gang of Ghosts`, said.

The 59-year-old actor believes that Kirron would accomplish great things as a politician.
"She is a fantastic friend, wife and a mother. She is a very good wife and she would be a great politician. I am very proud that she is fighting elections from Chandigarh. She is from Chandigarh and I wish her great luck," he said.

`Gang of Ghosts`, directed by Satish Kaushik, is a remake of Bengali blockbuster `Bhooter Bhabishyat`. It is slated to release on March 21.

Besides Anupam, the comedy also features Sharman Joshi, Mahie Gill, Rajpal Yadav, Chunky Pandey, Saurabh Shukla and sister newcomer Meera Chopra, who is a distant cousin of actresses Priyanka and Parineeti Chopra.
"(The film) is a comedy of characters. It is not a slapstick or situational comedy. The great thing about it is that usually one feels scared about a ghost movie. But here you will fall in love with them. We were lucky and fortunate that we were surrounded by brilliant actors," Anupam said.
