Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday met actor-turned-politician and BJP candidate from Punjab’s Gurdaspur Lok Sabha seat Sunny Deol and posted a picture with him on Twitter.
Along with the photo, PM Modi also tweeted the famous dialogue from actor’s period drama film ‘Gadar: Ek Prem Katha’ to express his agreement that “Hindustan zindabad hai, tha aur rahega”.
PM Modi also appreciated Deol’s “humility and deep sense of passion for a better India”.
“What struck me about @iamsunnydeol is his humility and deep passion for a better India. Happy to have met him today. We are all rooting for his victory in Gurdaspur! We both agree- Hindustan zindabad hai, tha aur rahega,” PM Modi tweeted.
Sunny Deol joined BJP on April 23. He is the third member from Deol’s family to join BJP after Dharmendra and Hema Malini.
