New Delhi [India], Apr 28 (ANI): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday met actor-turned-politician Sunny Deol who has been fielded by the Bharatiya Janata Party from the Gurdaspur Lok Sabha seat.  
Following the meeting, PM Modi posted a picture on Twitter and said that he was impressed by Deol’s passion for a better India. “What struck me about Sunny Deol 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 tha, hai aur rahega,” tweeted the Prime Minister.
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 of the party's rivals with Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh terming him a ‘filmi fauji’.
Sunny Deol is a ‘filmi fauji,’ while I am a ‘real fauji.’ Captain Amarinder Singh had said in Gurdaspur on Friday.
The actor held his first roadshow in Rajasthan’s Barmer on Saturday. (ANI)
