Powerhouse performer Sunny Deol recently joined the ruling party Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) and was even announced as the party’s candidate from Gurdaspur. Sunny is the third member of the Deol family to venture into politics. Prior to Sunny, his father Dharmendra and stepmother Hema Malini too have plunged into politics.

Recently, Dharmendra in one of his interviews said, that he wouldn’t have allowed Sunny to contest elections had he known who his rival was. Yes, you read that right. And if you are wondering why he said so, then read on to know the reason.

Sunny will be contesting the elections opposite Congress’s Sunil Jakhar, who is a very experienced politician. Recently, Dharmendra while campaigning for Sunny in Gurdaspur, expressing his views told ANI, “Sunny cannot debate with him as he (Sunil) is an experienced politician and even his father was a very experienced politician, but we come from the film industry. Moreover, we are not here to debate but to listen to the plight of people as we love this land.”

The veteran actor further added, “Balram Jakhar was like my brother. Had I known his son Sunil Jakhar was contesting from Gurdaspur, I would have not allowed Sunny to contest against him.”

Well, let’s see if Sunny proves his father wrong and is able to beat his opponent. Punjab will be voting on May 19 for the ongoing Lok Sabha elections. The results of the elections will be announced on May 23.
