Actor Sunny Deol has today joined the Bharatiya Janata Party. He is likely to contest from Gurdaspur, as per reports. The popular actor, renowned for his roles in superhit movies such a Gadar and Ghatak, follows in the footsteps of his step-mother Hema Malini who has been a long time member of the BJP.

The widely popular Bollywood star joined the BJP in presence of Union Defense Minister Nirmala Sitharaman and Railways Minister Piyush Goyal. Only two days earlier, Deol had met BJP President Amit Shah at the Pune Airport.

“I’m indeed very happy to receive a firebrand, popular, very committed to his art and great artist from Bollywood Sri Sunny Deol,” Sitharaman said. She added, “The moment we got to know that he is coming into the party, I could only relate to the movie ‘Border’ he had made post which the impact on the Indian audience of such a theme was really proven that the feeling of Indian Nationalism, Patriotism, when evoked through a film, can really touch the chord of every Indian citizen.”
