It was a close shave for actor-turned politician Sunny Deol on Monday, when one of the tyres of the sport utility vehicle he was travelling in burst on the Amritsar-Gurdaspur national highway, police said.
At least four vehicles in Deol's convoy rammed into each other, though no one was injured. The actor was on his way for a roadshow. He, subsequently, left the spot in another vehicle.
Deol, 62, is a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-Akali Dal alliance candidate from Gurdaspur, the seat represented four times by yesteryear actor Vinod Khanna, who passed away due to cancer in April 2017.
