This year, ahead of the Lok Sabha general elections, they assigned this responsibility to Ayushmann Khurrana. On Tuesday, Ayushmann shared the ECI’s video on his official X account, urging people to vote in the upcoming polls.

He stated that elections would be held in various states across the country in different phases and asked the people to take a day out to vote. He described the Lok Sabha polls as a festival that should be celebrated by casting one’s vote.
