Let’s be real, the only evidence you have of casting your vote is that you have a picture, more importantly, a selfie with the inked finger (in primary focus) to prove it. In fact, when I went to vote yesterday, looking at my fingers, the officer at the polling booth remarked to the lady officer, “Sab nail polish laga ke aa rahe hai (Everyone is applying nail polish and coming to vote)”. And my response (out loud to him) was “Bahaar jaa ke photo jo nikaal na hai (I have to go out and take a photo ya)”. Not to undermine the importance of the seriousness of voting, but we, and Bollywood celebrities, especially like to have fun on social media. We’ve already caught co-stars taking selfies and introduced you to the Selfie Gospel. When it came to Indians voting, a new selfie was invented, the ‘Unglie‘, which is basically a Hindi speaking person’s selfie featuring the inked index finger.
Here’s a look at the Bollywood Celebrity ‘Unglies’:
Of course, our shutterbugs were not at rest. Check out these pictures of Bollywood celebrities who voted in various parts of Mumbai and displayed their ink!
