KARAN’S DEBUT IS MY PRIORITY: SUNNY
Actor Sunny Deol talks about his son Karan Deol’s Bollywood debut, says he wasn’t surprised by Karan’s decision to join movies
Actor Sunny Deol (above) is a busy man. He’s not just occupied with his work, but also with his son, Karan Deol’s Bollywood debut. “I’m excited for Karan’s debut and that’s what I am working on right now. It is my priority,” says Deol, who will produce his son’s launch vehicle.
Deol’s sons Karan and Rajvir have both expressed their desire to become actors and the proud father says he wasn’t surprised when he got to know of their ambition. “Obviously, it was not all sudden that Karan wanted to be an actor. Both the sons want to be actors. There is no harm in it and I believe whatever an individual wants to do, he or she should be encouraged in that direction. If it’s their dream, they should try it but not feel any fear,” says Sunny, whose directorial, Ghayal Once Again, released earlier this year.
The 58-year-old made his Bollywood debut with the 1983 film, Betaab, and went on to give hits such as Darr (1993), ChaalBaaz (1989), Ghayal (1990) and Gadar: Ek Prem Katha (2001). The actor accepts that his sons will have to face more competition in the film industry than he did.
“When we came in the industry, there were no teenagers, but now it’s only teenagers who are encouraged to become actors. The competition is always going to be there but you can’t shy away from doing what you wish to do because of the fear,” he says.
