That Bollywood actor Sunny Deol is a big bet for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) as far as the Gurdaspur Lok Sabha constituency is concerned is no hyperbole. What actually serves the role is the amount of love he has been getting from his audience.
That love translated into a kiss on the cheek from a middle-aged woman, on Thursday.
The woman, unabashedly, climbed atop Sunny's vehicle and planted a kiss on his cheek. The actor-turned-politician turned into a red beetroot. He was campaigning in Punjab's Batala.

Sunny Deol has been making waves across the political circles with his power-filled speeches and sojourns to the homes of martyrs.
His road shows have also been a huge attraction. In one of these, Sunny Deol even held a handpump in his hand. For the unversed, in one of the biggest hits of his career, Gadar - Ek Prem Katha, he uprooted a handpump in an angry reaction towards Amrish Puri, the villain.
'Hindustan zindabad hai, thha aur rahega...' a dialogue from the same movie has also made frequent appearances in his poll pitch.
