And then came the filmstars to conquer all before them!
The greatest asset about most filmstars from Bollywood (with a few exceptions like Sunil Dutt and Shatrughan Sinha) is they do as they are told, recite a few dialogues from their last hit film(doesn’t matter if it was 10 years ago) and generally appear with make-up on stage; any stage!
Unlike in the South where there’s substance to stardust, here it’s only dust!
And it’s the kind you can snort, suck and slurp!
Best part is there is nothing the Congress can say about Sunny “dhai kilo Ka haath” Deol
You already have Urmila Matondkar and a few other airheads giving gyan in one liners on a Congress ticket!
The unparalleled Sunny Deol is the BJP’s candidate from Gurdaspur, Punjab for this Lok Sabha poll; and he is expected to win by a landslide!
The late filmstar Vinod Khanna had won by huge margins when BJP gave him a ticket …thrice!
And I am all for filmstars contesting elections; MGR, NTR, Jayalalitha, Karunanidhi, Gemini Ganesan, Kamalahasan …the list is endless
There is also Moon Moon Sen
So why am I writing about Sunny Deol?
I like the man; I like his father Dharamendra too!
And I think this is one filmstar who will genuinely work for Gurdaspur!
And I am willing to be crucified for this when after winning SUNNY THE DEOL does not visit Gurdaspur at all
And it won’t be the first time that I would have been crucified for having been proven wrong by all the people I really and truly liked!
Take Mr Narendra Modi for instance
And of course the young lad who used to call me UNCLE namely Rahul Gandhi!
But I continue to live in and on HOPE!
