Lok Sabha Polls 2019: Bollywood star Sunny Deol joins BJP

The party is likely to field Deol, the star of films such as "Ghayal" and "Damini", from either Gurdaspur or Chandigarh in the ongoing Lok Sabha elections.


Bollywood actor Sunny Deol joined the BJP on April 23 in the presence of Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman and Railway Minister Piyush Goyal. Deol met BJP president Amit Shah at Pune airport briefly last week.

"The way my father (film star Dharmendra) was attached with Atalji, today I have come to join Modiji," said Deol.

"Whatever I can do for this family (BJP), I will do it....I won't talk, I will show you through my work," Deol added.
