Sunny Deol On Working With Balki



Sunny Deol

Actor Sunny Deol has not been seen on screen  since  Blank  in 2019 which drew a blank at the boxoffice .He  hopes  to make  a comeback with  R Balki’s  Chup which  opens this week.

 In  Chup  Sunny Deol  got to work with  R Balki for the first time.

 Deol  recently opened up on his experience of  working with the director.”It is my first time working with Balki . He is really a great professional with a great vision. He knows what he wants and is very precise with his work, and that’s what made us finish the shoot within just 45 days. It was a great pleasure working with him and the whole team. It went most smoothly for us.”

In an earlier interview with me Sunny Deol had said, “I’ve reached  a stage  in  my career where I   don’t need to prove  anything  to anyone except myself.I’ve been around for forty years. I’ve seen generations of actors come and go. I want to be  remembered as a lambi race  ka ghoda,  like my father(actor Dharmendra).”

Chup is a homage  to the great  filmmaker  Guru Dutt whom Sunny Deol never got a chance to work with  . However his father Dharmendra has  a close connection  with  Guru Dutt. In what was meant to be   Guru Dutt’s last starring role in Baharen Phir Bhi Aayengi  in  1966, Dharmendra replaced Guru Dutt after  the latter’s sudden death. The entire film  was re-shot with Dharmendra.
