Will Bhaiaji Superhit Resurrect Sunny Deol’s Career?

Sunny Deol has been facing rough weather at  the  boxoffice for the past few years. Every attempt to make  a comeback with  or without his  father the legendary Dharmendra and  brother Bobby Deol for company, has  fallen flat.

As recently as last week Sunny Deol had a  massive flop in Mohalla Assi where he attempted to  do something different by playing a staunch  Hindu pundit.

 Now in his  release this week Bhaiaji Superhit  Deol is cast as  a  gangster  in Uttar Pradesh who wants to be a Bollywoodactor.

The  director Neeraj Pathak who has earlier worked with Deol in  Right Yaa Wrong(which also starred Irrfan) says he shares an outstanding rapport with Deol. “Sunnyji will be seen in a never -seen avatar in this movie. I always  love working with him as I feel at home whenever I am shooting with him. He is a man of  few words. But I can read his silences. We share a great bond we trust each other. He believes in me and  that inspires me to give my best. Sunnyji  plays a don from UP named Bhaiyajiwho is married to a Don’s daughter Sapna Dubey. That’s Preity Zinta. She  is an angry shakki(suspicious) wife who makes life hell for Bhaiyaji. She leaves him. To get her back he makes a movie on their life. Bollywood meets Gangsterism.”

Preity is all set to make a comeback with old co-star Sunny Deol According to the director Neeraj Pathak, Preity plays a ferocious character with a UP accent to kill for.And she has pulled it off with aplomb.

Says Neeraj, “Preity plays a Uttar Pradesh wali.She plays a gangster’s daughter. She’s no-nonsense UP gangster and Sunny deol’s wife.Preity’s interpretation  of the firebrand wife’s character is bang-on. She will not be judged as an urbane haute-couture diva after Bhaiyaji Superhit.”
