Actor-turned politician Sunny Deol has recently escaped unhurt after the tyre of the vehicle he was traveling in burst on the Amritsar-Gurdaspur national highway.
At least four vehicles in Sunny Deol’s convoy rammed into each other, though no one was injured. The actor was on his way for a roadshow. After the accident, Mr Deol resumed his journey.
The actor-turned-politician’s cavalcade was going towards Fatehgarh Churian where he had to campaign, senior police officer said.
