Vinod Khanna to contest from Punjab's Gurdaspur on BJP ticket
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has fielded veteran Bollywood actor Vinod Khanna from the Gurdaspur Lok Sabha seat in Punjab.

Khanna will take on Punjab Congress chief Pratap Singh Bajwa who had defeated him in the last election in 2009 by a narrow margin.
Khanna had joined BJP in 1997 and was elected from Gurdaspur constituency in the next year's Lok Sabha poll. In 1999, he was re-elected to the Lok Sabha from the same constituency.
In 2004 he won re-election from Gurdaspur. However, he lost out in the 2009 Lok Sabha poll.
