New Delhi | Bollywood actor Sunny Deol has joined the Bhartiya Janata Party(BJP) amid the 2019 Lok Sabha polls today.

It is likely that he will contest from the Gurdaspur constituency in Punjab.

The seat earlier belonged to the late actor Vinod Khanna.

This action clears the speculations which had evoked earlier, that actor Akshay Kumar would be contesting from the seat.

He had met BJP Chief Amit Shah last week, in a short meeting at an airport.

Sunny Deol joined the party in the presence of Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman and Railways Minister Piyush Goyal, in the BJP headquarters in New Delhi.

“Sunny Deol is a great actor, he is inspired by PM Modi’s work”, said Nirmala Sitharaman.

“The way my Papa worked with and supported Atal ji, I am here today to work with and support Modi ji. My work will do the talking”, the actor said, after joining the party.
