As many as 2,533 candidates were in the fray, including political bigwigs like CM Chouhan and his predecessor and rival Kamal Nath, in a poll that was largely a bipolar battle between the ruling BJP and the opposition Congress.

Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan – a BJP heavyweight who has already won several terms from Budhni – will take on Congress candidate Vikram Mastal. The 40-year-old had gained prominence for essaying the role of 'Hanuman' in the 2008 TV serial 'Ramayan 2'.

Political observers believe the Congress has pared down the contest for Chouhan by fielding a lightweight candidate who is new to politics and the electorate of the constituency.

Meanwhile, the Samajwadi Party nominated Vairagyanand Giri, aka ‘Mirchi Baba’ from Budhni. He had previously gained prominence in 2019 after performing a ‘havan’ with chillies for the “victory" of Congress leader Digvijaya Singh from Bhopal. The Lok Sabha constituency was however won by BJP’s Pragya Singh Thakur.
