    New Delhi (Sputnik): As the Indian state of Maharashtra held elections for the legislative assembly on Monday, Bollywood biggies were snapped at the polling stations and casting votes in the tinsel town of Mumbai. The elections were necessitated as the five-year term of the Devendra Fadnavis-led Maharashtra Government will end on 9 November.

    Amid high security, many Bollywood celebrities including Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Jaya Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan, Varun Dhawan, Deepika Padukone, Hrithik Roshan, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Arjun Kapoor and legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar cast their ballots in Mumbai to vote in the Maharashtra Assembly Elections on Monday.

    Paparazzi in Mumbai were on fire as they flooded their Instagram pages with pictures of B-town biggies posing with inked index fingers, proof of having voted in India. Some celebrities also shared their "vote for India" images on their verified handles.
