New Delhi: Sunny Deol has filed his nomination from Punjab’s Gurdaspur parliamentary constituency. His brother and actor Bobby Deol was also present with him.
Before filing his nomination, Sunny Deol paid a visit to the Golden Temple in Amritsar and offered prayers. Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday met Deol on Sunday and posted a photo of the meeting along with a message on Twitter stating that he was impressed with Deol’s passion for a better India.
Gurdaspur parliamentary constituency was earlier represented by actor Vinod Khanna who won from here four times – 1998, 1999, 2004 and 2014 – on a BJP ticket.
Deol, who joined BJP on April 23, has already come under electoral crosshairs with party’s rival Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh terming him a ‘filmi fauji’.
