Bhubaneswar: Two prominent Odia film stars and a playback singer Friday joined the Biju Janata Dal here.
Actors Mihir Das and Satyaki Mishra and singer Trupti Das met Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik at his residence and said they joined the ruling party.
"I am delighted," the chief minister told reporters, adding the trio would be great assets for the party.
Actors Prashanta Nanda, Sidhant Mohapatra, Anubhav and comedian Pappu Pampam have already joined the party.
These developments come days after Odia actors Bijay Mohanty and Aparajita Mohanty joined the Congress party and Sritam Das and Pinky Pradhan joined the Bharatiya Janata Party.
