Actor-producer Rahul Roy on Saturday joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) inspired by the “remarkable” work done by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, officials said.

“The way Narendra Modi ji and Amit Shah ji (BJP chief) have been taking the country forward is remarkable… Their work is changing the way the world looks at India,” Roy said.

“It’s a significant day for me today,” he added.

Roy joined the party in the presence of Union Minister Vijay Goel at the BJP headquarters in the national capital.

Roy became a household name after starring in blockbuster “Aashiqui” in 1990, and gave subsequent hits like “Junoon” and “Phir Teri Kahani Yaad Aayee”.

After a long hiatus from Bollywood, he took part and won the first season of TV reality show “Bigg Boss” in 2007. He was last seen in “To B or Not to B” in 2016, which went unnoticed.
