Rahul inquired about Sunny’s Bollywood voyage, commencing with Betaab in 1983. Sunny expressed, “I’ve been incredibly fortunate. I tend to get emotional easily; that’s my weakness.”

“I was lucky to start with Rahul. He gave me three wonderful films. Some clicked, some didn’t. But even today, people remember those films. My standing here is because of my movies. After the massive success of Gadar, my struggle began. Scripts weren’t coming my way, and things weren’t progressing. Despite doing a few films in between, there was a 20-year gap.

In response, Rajkumar Santoshi remarked, “I believe the industry hasn’t done justice to Sunny’s talent, but God has.” This statement brought tears to Sunny Deol.

Meanwhile, after 27 years, Rajkumar Santoshi and Sunny Deol are reuniting for ‘Lahore 1947,’ produced by Aamir Khan. The actor-director duo previously collaborated on blockbusters like Ghayal (1990), Damini (1993), and Ghatak: Lethal (1996).

Sunny recently marked a remarkable return with Gadar 2, solidifying his status as a sought-after actor in Bollywood and bagging significant film projects.
