Actor Suresh Oberoi is expected to join the Bharatiya Janata Party on February 16.
Terming the BJP as a "great organisation with great leadership," Oberoi said he would canvass for the party during the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections.
Oberoi was to join the BJP in the presence of party president M Venkaiah Naidu on Thursday along with Nache Mayuri fame Sudha Chandran in Mumbai. "However, I could not come from Delhi in time for the function as my flight got delayed," he said.
He will be following in the steps of film industry colleagues Shatrughan Sinha, Vinod Khanna, Nitish Bharadwaj and Smruti Malhotra Irani among others.
