Sunny Deol joined the Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) on Tuesday and is likely to contest from the Gurdaspur Lok Sabha constituency.
Earlier in 2014, actor Vinod Khanna from the BJP had won this seat.
The unfortunate demise of Vinod Khanna led to a by-election in which the Congress candidate Sunil Kumar Jakhar won. He is again contesting the elections.
Dharmendra had represented BJP from the Bikaner Lok Sabha seat and moreover, his wife Hema Malini is a sitting MP from Mathura.
