Actor Sunny Deol, joined the ruling BJP today, days after he met with party president Amit Shah. He is likely to be the BJP candidate from Gurdaspur in Punjab. 'Like my father joined Atal Bihari Vajpayee, I have decided to join Prime Minister Narendra Modi. I want PM Modi for the next five years,' said the actor in a short speech.
Sunny Deol joined in the presence of Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman and Railway Minister Piyush Goyal.
Mr Deol met BJP president Amit Shah at Pune airport briefly last week.
He is the third Deol to join politics - and the BJP - after Dharmendra and his wife Hema Malini, also mega actors for decades.
