April 24, 2019
After Urmila Matondkar, Jayaprada and Hema Malini, Bollywood actor Sunny Deol is now all set to join politics. The actor will join BJP and is most likely to contest from Punjab. Deol, who is the son of yesteryear actor Dharmendra, had met BJP leader Amit Shah last week. He joined the party on Tuesday in the presence of Union Minister Nirmala Seetharaman and Piyush Goyal. Deol said that he decided to join the party after being influenced by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi who belongs to BJP.
Thanks a lot @BJP4India @narendramodi ji @AmitShah ji @Ramlal ji @PiyushGoyal ji @nsitharaman ji @CaptAbhimanyu ji @amitmalviya ji for this warm welcome-Sunny Deol
While speaking at a function in Delhi, Deol said that he wants to do many things for the party and will prove his dedication for the party through his actions. Deol's father Dharmendra and step-mother Hema Malini are also members of the BJP.
"Acclaimed Bollywood Actor Sunny Deol joins BJP in The presence of Union Ministers Nirmala Sitharaman and Piyush Goel. Contesting from much coveted Gurdaspur , @iamsunnydeol will prove to be a great asset to the party for coming elections, tweeted Chowkidar Geetika Swami.
Sunny Deol, who had been active in Bollywood during the 80's and 90's is now hardly seen in movies. The few movies that he did over the past couple of years had bombed at the box office. He will next be seen in the movie Blank which is scheduled for release in May.
