Several BJP leaders in West Bengal have also shown interest in Gambhir as a campaigner, who has a "huge" fan following in the state as he was the captain of the Kolkata Knight Riders in the IPL, the source said.

"The party is exploring options how to cash in on Gambhir's persona and his popularity in the campaigning for the high-stakes West Bengal Assembly elections," he said.

In 2019, Gambhir had campaigned for a few party candidates during Haryana Assembly polls which included former hockey star Sandeep Singh. Gambhir joined the BJP ahead of Lok Sabha polls last year. He defeated former Delhi Congress president Arvinder Singh Lovely on East Delhi seat.
