As counting of votes for the 542 Lok Sabha seats begins today, actor Anupam Kher showed confidence that India's future will shine with the results.

He took to Twitter to express his views:

"Today, the future of India will shine even brighter on this festival of democracy. Jai Ho."

The actor's wife, Kirron Kher, is seeking a consecutive victory from Chandigarh parliamentary constituency.

Anupam Kher has held extensive election rallies in Chandigarh while canvassing for his wife, who contested against former Railway Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal from Congress party.

Kirron, the actor-turned-politician, won the Chandigarh seat with 1,91,362 votes in 2014 general elections against Congress rival Bansal, whom she defeated by nearly 70,000 votes.

During one of his rallies held to support his wife, Anupam Kher had called Bansal as a corrupt man, saying "Even the corrupt people can have confidence, they (Pawan Bansal and Congress) rely on their corruption while the honest ones rely on their honesty. Doesn't mean they will win.
