Chandigarh: Bollywood actor Sunny Deol may begin his political career during the General Elections. The `Punjab da Puttar` may contest the upcoming Lok Sabha polls against Congress heavyweight Manish Tewari from Punjab`s Ludhiana constituency, reports suggested on Friday.

Sunny, son of Bollywood actor Dharmendra is expected to fight on a BJP/Akali Dal ticket.

Congress has decided to re-nominate Tewari from Ludhiana seat and his candidature will be announced soon.

There was speculation that Tewari was not keen to contest from the seat and the party may not field him citing health reasons.
However, AICC general secretary in-charge for Chandigarh Shakeel Ahmed scotched the speculation asking when did Tewari say he did not want to contest.

Sunny`s father Dharmendra was a member of the 14th Lok Sabha of India and was the BJP MP from Bikaner constituency in Rajasthan.
Sunny on Thursday campaigned for BJP`s candidate Dr Satyapal Singh in Baghpat district of western Uttar Pradesh.

The Bollywood action hero took part in a road show organised by the former Mumbai police commissioner. The road show was a hit as huge number of people turned up to see Sunny Deol.

The Akali Dal and the BJP have a long standing alliance and are contesting the 2014 Elections together.
