Famous Haryanvi actress Sapna Chaudhary on Tuesday clarified that she doesn't seek an apology from BJP MP Ashwini Chopra who called her a 'thumke wali' or dancer and questioned reports of her joining the Congress party.

"What you say shows your mindset. I am an entertainer. I am focused on my work. He is a senior man, I don't seek apology," Sapna said.

Chaudhary had visited the office of UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi on Friday, but was unable to meet Gandhi as she had been out of the office. Chaudhary's visit sparked rumours of her interest in joining the Congress party and politics.

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Ashwini Kumar Chopra from Karnal said that the Congress Party must decide what is more important to them, winning elections or ‘thumkas’ (dance move).

“Congress has people already who dance, and that’s enough. The party needs to prioritise what they want to do, whether they want to dance or win an election. (Congress mein thumke lagane wale jo hain woh hi thumke lagayenge, yeh unko dekhna hai ki thumke lagane hain ya chunaav jeetna hai),” Chopra had said.

Earlier on Monday Sapna had defended her image in a statement to media.

"I have a good image. I don't know which image of Bollywood the MP is talking about... it's not right to say anything about anybody without knowing that person," Sapna said.

"Ashwini Chopra must be watching my dances, that is why he passed that remark. I would like to thank him," she added.

"The Congress has placed some offers before me. If I like it, I will think about it, but as of now, I have not taken any decision... I went to the Congress office as they called me, if the BJP too calls me I will go and meet them," the Haryanvi dancer said.
