Congress say that they viewed me only as an actress, says Khushbu Sundar after joining BJP

New Delhi [India], October 13 (ANI): A day after joining the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), actor-turned-politician Khushbu Sundar on Tuesday said before quitting the Congress, the party perceived her only as an actress.
