Lending more star power to the Bharatiya Janata Party’s clout, Bollywood actor Sunny Deol joined the BJP on Tuesday in the presence of defence minister Nirmala Sitharaman and railways minister Piyush Goyal.

“The way my Papa (veteran actor Dharmendra) worked with and supported Atal ji, I am here today to work with and support Modi ji. My work will do the talking,” Deol said after being welcomed into the party. Dharmendra has been the BJP MP from Rajasthan’s Bikaner Lok Sabha from 2004 to 2009.

It is being speculated that the BJP could field the action star from Punjab’s Gurdaspur or Amritsar in the Lok Sabha elections.

The 62-year-old actor who is known for films such as Border, Gaddar, Ghayal and Damini. His power packed dialogues have been all the rage for years now. No surprise then that more than the politics around his joining, it is Sunny Deol’s star power, or more precisely, the power of his ‘dhai kilo ka haath’, that is dominating the discourse around his political plunge.

Soon after the move was announced, Sunny Deol memes erupted on Twitter. Here is a look at some of the most hilarious ones.

Recent elections have shown political parties banking heavily on star power to woo the electorate. Several prominent film personalities have taken the political plunge in recent years and this election is no different. Through Sunny Deol, the BJP has attempted to further its nationalism plank which forms the bedrock of the party’s campaign this Lok Sabha election. Welcoming Deol to the party fold, Nirmala Sitharaman said that through his films like Border, the “firebrand actor” had not only managed to showcase the lives of soldiers on the border, but also evoked national pride.

“Sunny Deol’s induction in the party reminds me of his film which also reflects his sentiment towards the country,” she said.
