Sunny Deol will be funny in his next
Bollywood's action man Sunny Deol will be in a new avatar this time round in his 'Jo Bole So Nihal'. He will play a sardar that he has played earlier too in 'Border' and 'Gadar'. Now, he acts as a sardar and a policeman too. The police is usually shown as an adversary in movies, but Sunny Deol will make them proud in this movie. We met him recently and had a chat with him.
Excerpts of his chat:
What's are your expectations as a sardar in 'Jo Bole so Nihal'?
I wish this movie to be a hit like the other two.
What's your experience while working with Rahul Rawel once again?
Yes, I worked with him in 'Betaab', 'Arjun', and 'Arjun Pandit'. This has helped us in coming closer. This helps in making a better movie.
Is 'Jo Bole So Nihal' a comedy? Do you act funny in it?
Yes, I have played the character of a sardar who reaches the US but is unaware of the customs there. Hence, he acts funny. So, the movie turns a comedy. I am sure that the viewers will have a good laughter after watching this sardarji arriving in a new land.
Do you find any big change in Rahul Rawel now?
He is a great technician. He knows his job very well. He is an asset.
Will you comment on the failure of 'Socha Naa Tha' at box office though it was widely appreciated?
I am happy that both actor Abhay Deol and director Imtiaz Ali have earned praise for their performances. Regarding it not faring well at the box office, I may say that it might be because of its release at a wrong time. Since the students were busy in their exams, it didn't fare as well as expected at the box office.
Why are movies flopping these days?
I think movies are flopping because they are being shown at multiplexes, where the ticket prices are quite high.
Is the industry looking into to this problem?
I do not think enough attention is being given to this. But there is a great need for the industry to look into this problem.
What about your home production 'Deodhar Gandhi'?
The movie has been completed. This is ready for release in August.
