New Delhi: Denying the reports of joining Congress, famous Haryanavi singer and dancer Sapna Chaudhary said that, "The photograph with Priyanka Gandhi Vadra is old."

Her statement comes a day after photographs surfaced in which she is seen signing some papers.

The singer, however, said she had no idea of the photographs. “I cannot tell what kind of paper was that and I am not sure of when it is. I meet with people of all parties and I am an artist. I am not joining politics. When I will join politics, I will come out in the open”, she said.
