Actor Sunny Deol joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday. Veteran actor Dharmendra’s son who met BJP president Amit Shah last week joined the BJP in the presence of Union ministers Piyush Goyal and Nirmala Sitharaman. Internet exploded with Sunny Deol memes soon after.
Sunny Deol follows in the footsteps of his father, who had worked with former PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee. The actor stated, “I want PM Modi for the next five years. My work will do the talking.”
Sunny becomes the third Deol in his family after Dharmendra and Hema Malini to join politics. It is being speculated that he will be contesting from Punjab’s Gurdaspur constituency in the Lok Sabha elections that will take place on May 19.
In the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, BJP had won the seat after fielding late actor Vinod Khanna from there. Gurdaspur has mainly been a Congress stronghold, only changing with Khanna’s victory in 1998. The sitting Gurdaspur MP is Sunil Jakhar of the Congress.
Soon after the news of Sunny Deol joining the BJP was announced, the social media exploded with memes surrounding the actor, his work and his statement that his work “will do the talking”.
Here are some of the Sunny Deol memes that are trending on the internet.
