Veteran Bollywood actor Dharmendra has taken to Twitter to extend some fatherly advice to his son Sunny Deol, the newly elected BJP MP from Punjab’s Gurdaspur. Senior Deol in a tweet said, “Sunny,My son try to learn something from my Son like,Bhagwant Singh Maan, MP from Sangrur. What a sacrifice , to serve mother India ????????. Jeete raho Maan , Bahut, Bahut maan hai , mujhe aap par (sic),” The tweet came in response to a Twitter user @iamSunnyTakher, who in an tweet had posted Sunny’s pics with ‘looking so Dashing’ caption.
The confusing tweet was met with humorous responses from the twitteratis as one of the users asked, “Kya sacrifice kiya mann ne.” To which Dharmendra responded, “APNA krodon ka pesha, His film career.” It seems that Dharmendra wishes Sunny to act as ‘simple’ as Bhagwant Mann, MP from Sangrur constituency and must do away with anything else if entered politics for the sake of motherland.
Recently, Sunny Deol landed himself amid controversies after he appointed Gurpreet Palheri as his representative to take care of the matters pertaining to his parliamentary constituency. The actor-turned politician was alleged by Congress of ‘betraying the mandate’ of the people.
Oddly enough, during the poll campaign, Deol had said that he will ‘live in Gurdaspur after elections.’ “I am getting huge response from the people, if they love me they will make me win. Will work for local issues. Will open hospitals, colleges and work for the development of the constituency,” he had said. “I won’t leave Gurdaspur and will live here,” the BJP leader had said during one of his roadshows.
The BJP had fielded 59-year-old Deol from Gurdaspur Lok Sabha seat in 2019 Lok Sabha elections. Deol, 59, defeated the Punjab Congress chief Sunil jhakar with a margin of 82,459 votes. Earlier, late actor Vinod Khanna had represented Gurdaspur constituency four times in 1998, 1999, 2004 and 2014.
