After working for Thirty-five years and several blockbusters later, Bollywood actor Sunny Deol says his process of working in a film is purely "natural" where he is more attentive in listening to the storyteller than reading scripts.
"I am a very instinctive person. I hear an idea, a thought and if it is good and I like it, I just jump for it. I don't go into the detailing of it. Right now, you need to do that but back then filmmaking was different. I never read scripts," Sunny told to PTI.
"I just hear the idea from the director and go for it. I have always interacted with the story writer and heard the subject because that's what is going to eventually come over on screen," he adds.
From the start of his career in 1983 with "Betaab", Sunny has featured in some strong content driven films like "Ghayal", "Damini", "Darr" and "Gaddar Ek Prem Katha", among others.
A process of not construing scripts can be measured chancy but Sunny still goes by his instincts while giving nod to a film.
"One never takes it as gamble. I do it because I love it and I'm enjoying the story. Obviously sometimes in the journey you realise the production, the director, writer, or some things are going here and there but you don't disown it. You don't run away because it's everyone's baby," he declares.
"I don't think I have ever worked with the attitude that 'This is easy I can do it.' Hats off to those who say and do it. For me, I need to enjoy it. You can't be nervous while performing a scene because then you wouldn't be able to," he says.
"I cannot be a teenager in films. You move accordingly, and your experience makes you do certain subjects which you wouldn't have done when you were younger. As the time goes, you interact and become more aware of certain things”.
"It'll be stupid if I still want to play a college boy. Besides that nobody would want to make it also. It's only when the filmmakers know that this actor can pull it off, is when they approach you," he adds.---PTI
Coming to his next film is "Bhaiaji Superhit", which also features Priety Zinta and Arshad Warsi. The Film is Directed by Neerraj Pathak and produced by Chirag Dhariwal.
