Sunny Deol
Mumbai, March 26: Putting an end to all speculations regarding his participation in upcoming Lok Sabha election, Bollywood actor Sunny Deol clarified that he is not willing to join politics. Unlike media reports, the actor stated that he will not contest election and he is not supporting any political party.

Speaking to Oneindia during an interview in Mumbai, Deol said, "I have no ambition to go into politics. I am very much an actor and like to be in acting." The actor said that he did not like the way how his father used to struggle to act on his own when he had joined politics. Dharmendra had won elections on BJP ticket from Bikaner, Rajashthan in 2004.

Speaking about his father, veteran Bollywood actor Dharmendra, Sunny said, "I have seen my Dad when he was there he used to rely on so many people to get a job done. If I can't do the thing so why should a person like me will go to politics?"

Speaking about Singh's contribution to the society as the Police Commissioner of Mumbai, Sunny said, "I went for it because I know him personally. He was a good commissioner, he has done lot of good work for the city. He left everything and joined the politics."

"...we need people who are good and have good energy. We need people who go out and do something good for our country," added Sunny.

He, however, urged people to cast their votes. The Bollywood actor said, "I request everyone to vote and choose right people so that our country will be good. Go and vote that is the most important thing."

Recently, media reports claimed that he was in touch with BJP leaders and might join the party. Other reports also claimed thatSunny Deol might replace Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) candidate Manpreet Singh Ayali in Ludhiana.
