Everyone should love their nation, that is what is nationalism: Sunny Deol
"I had not always planned to get into politics but when I got a chance I decided to get into it" said Sunny Deol.
On his political debut
I had not always planned to get into politics but when I got a chance I decided to get into it. Whenever I pick up any work, I am successful at it. I first want to win and then see what work I can do. Whenever I take up any kind of work, I ensure that I finish it.
On the nationalism debate
Debates keep going on. If not on this, then (it’ll be) something else. This has become a sort of entertainment of the day. Everyone should love their country and that is all there is to it.
On nationalism as election issue
What I understand about politics is that everything in the world has become about marketing, which is the sad bit. But along with the marketing if you are doing some good work, there is no harm to it.
On neighbouring Pakistan
Punjab is a border state and with the temperament we have, we do not have that many invaders coming in. We are used to so many people coming and try to fight here (without success).
On inexperience in politics In the film industry too there is a lot of politics. But I have stuck to myself and have achieved all that I have on my own terms. I cannot work on anyone else’s terms. I have never done that and I never will…I want to serve the nation.
Plans, if elected I don’t want to say much as I am new here. After winning, I will understand the pace well as I will do things professionally. There are so many things to be done here. I have to find different headings and find what the youth need and are looking for. That will give me a sense of what to do and then I will move ahead. It will be an interesting process and we will find ways to do things.
On the drug menace in Punjab
Once I understand the issue properly, I will get to know if it’s such a big thing or not. I will find out and I will take action accordingly.
