"I do not think me being elected on a Trinamool Congress ticket will in any way diminish my popularity with fans from the BJP, Congress or CPI(M)," said Dev.

The 31-year-old Bengali superstar is keen to see public reaction to a couple of his post-poll releases including 'Bindass', the first in the line-up.

Another is 'Buno Hans', an art house genre which is widely awaited.

The MP from Ghatal, who was handpicked by West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee to contest the Lok Sabha election, said that the occurrence of the names of Garbeta and Keshpur, infamous for political violence, in the film is purely accidental.

"Bindass is a fictional account, a typical love story and an entertainer. The shooting had taken place about a year back when none of us knew I would contest the polls from Ghatal. So there is no question of political motives," Dev said.

Asked if he had any road map for the Bengali film industry, Dev says, "We had always worked for the betterment of our film industry. As an MP, I would like to carry that forward. The over-a-month-long campaign phase was an eye-opener."

He said that he was happy to become people's representative at a young age.

"As one who feels connected to the youth of the state, my fans and others, I think juggling both persuasions will not be that tough."

The 'Romeo' star insisted that he would be where he was before the election, the only difference being that he would now look after his constituency.

"I can't go back from where I have achieved so far. Only, I will also be looking after my constituency as Deepak Adhikary," he said.
