Sunny Deol Discusses Father Dharmendra's Fame, Saying, He Is The Only Actor Who Succeed In All Genres
'Be it Satyakam, Chupke Chupke, Sholay, Pratigya, Phool Aur Phattar, or Anupama—he has accomplished it all'. As Sunny Deol Prepares For The Debut Of Chup, He Remarks, I Wish I Was An Actor In His Era.
'Be it Satyakam, Chupke Chupke, Sholay, Pratigya, Phool Aur Phattar, or Anupama—he has accomplished it all. As Sunny Deol prepares for the debut of Chup, he remarks, "I wish I was an actor in his era."
Having starred in numerous famous blockbusters throughout his career, Sunny Deol is one of the most well-known performers in Hindi films. Without any bias, the actor regards his father, Dharmendra, as his biggest idol. In an interview, Sunny beams, "I have got my idol at home." He continues, “He is the only actor to succeed in all genres of cinema and he has never shied away from exploring different roles. Be it Satyakam, Chupke Chupke, Sholay, Pratigya, Phool Aur Phattar, or Anupama – he has done it all. I wish I was an active actor in his era.”
Sunny thinks that in the past, writers and filmmakers had a great grasp of emotions, which is lacking in the present. “My dad used to shoot for many films in a day - from one set to the other. Imagine, how good the writer and directors were, that the actor could stick to their characters. They had no written scripts, it was just based on narrations,” he avers, adding further, “We have bind scripts in today’s time, but they are not close to what was done back in the day. I always keep thinking… I wish I was in that era.”
Sunny is preparing for Chup's theatrical debut, which also features Dulquer Salmaan in the major role. The film, which is being directed by R Balki, will debut on September 23. When his co-star Dulquer remarks that it's amazing how involved his father is in social media, Sunny responds, “Yes, he is very active on social media. He enjoys himself and loves the platform. He interacts with everyone, keeps replying to the messages, keeps wishing everyone and showers blessings on people”.
