Indian people are deeply influenced by celebrities, especially Bollywood actors and actresses. It is a known fact that actors and actresses are some of the biggest names in country as far as branding is concerned. Sometimes, celebrities lend their names to social causes in order to convey a strong message to people. Over the past few years, many have participated in campaigns, cancer drives and blood donation events. Well known Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan, according to reports, is going to take part in a bike rally that will be held in New Delhi. This bike rally is being organised to make youngsters aware of the importance of voting in today's society. In addition, the actor is also going to utilise this rally to promote his new film, Bullett Raja, an action film that is slated to release soon. This rally is reportedly called 'Bullet Rajas for Cause'- Lets thunder for the better democracy' and it is expected to have an impact on the youth.

According to sources, the Race 2 star was contacted by Electoral Participation (SVEEP) of North District and Nodel Officer of Systematic Voters Education to participate in this rally. Reports claim that this event shall be held on the 27th of November from 12 am to 4 pm. Organisers of this event are expecting to cover a number of areas in the national capital and will commence from Office of the District Magistrate (North). The group of bikers, during the course of rally, will stop in specific areas and try to encourage people to vote in the upcoming assembly elections, which will be held in December. Experts feel voting is absolutely critical for the country's youth as their opinion affects the development in long run. Also, a bike rally, according to many, is a strong and often used way of campaigning for elections in the modern day scenario. Adding Saif Ali Khan's name to this cause will be critical in making this event popular.

The actor, on his part, would be looking to connect with his fans and conveying, in a subtle way, what his upcoming film is all about. Apart from him, this event will see the participation of actress Sonakshi Sinha and director Tigmanshu Dhulia. Bullett Raja is an action film that also stars Jimmy Shergill, Chunkey Pandey and Vidyut Jamwal. The story of Bullett Raja is based in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, featuring Saif Ali Khan as the protagonist. This film is about mafia based in the state and its connection with powerful people in politics.

Tigmanshu Dhulia, the director of this film, has enjoyed great success in recent times, earning praise for his performances in the Gangs of Wasseypur and Gangs of Wasseypur – Part 2, which were made by Anurag Kashyap. Dhulia is known for directing films with excellent scripts and powerful characters. Some of his films have received tremendous critical acclaim, such as Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster, Haasil and Paan Singh Tomar. However, it is believed that the main focus of this event is going to be on encouraging young people to vote. 2014 is going to be a big year for India as the Lok Sabha elections will be held, wherein the probability of a new government coming to power is quite high. A lot of experts are considering elections in New Delhi to be critical from next year's point of view.
