The man who causes Gadar wherever he goes, Sunny Deol, is the man who defines masculinity in Bollywood. Deol was the ultimate action star in the 80s and 90s, taking a page out of Stallone's book. After Amitabh Bachchan, who raised the anger and intensity level on the screen, it was Sunny Deol. While he was the action star, Deol also brought a level of vulnerability to a screen that brought him critical acclaim. While he is rarely seen on screen, his dialogues and persona live on beyond him.
When the movie Darr is being shot, there is a scene where SRK's character stabs him. Sunny Deol, however, felt that it didn't make much sense because he's a naval officer who should see it coming. Deol tried to express his displeasure, but he held his anger with such a senior director at the helm. Sunny put his pockets and pulled it tightly until he ripped out the jeans. It caused quite a stir on the set. Deol laughingly said in an interview that these things happen sometimes.
Sunny Deol's son made his debut in 2019 in the movie Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas. In one of the interviews, he said that he was bullied due to Deol's name during his school days. Sunny appreciated that he came forward with it because these are the things not discussed about fame. Sunny went on to tell that he as well was bullied and had to change his school multiple times due to it. Sunny calls it part and parcel of fame, and you have to deal with it. For him going to a foreign university proved to be a formative experience of his life. Sunny felt like he no longer had the baggage of the Deol name and could explore himself.
In the Pandemic, the whole industry has been suffering massive losses and trying to get things back on track. The big challenge has been theaters either being closed or only partially open for audiences. For most politicians, the film industry is either disliked or the last topic on the agenda.
Sunny Deol used his political influence to lead the discussion on theater being reopened fully. He met every top minister in the Ministry of Finance, Information and broadcast, etc. Deol made the persuasive argument that the film industry is a vital part of the economy and should be focused upon. Due to his efforts, things were fast-tracked, and he brought 100 percent occupancy in early 2021.
Sunny Deol's connection to films is inseparable; however, he's decided to focus more on his political career. Deol is the elected MP of the Gurdaspur constituency in Punjab. Sunny has drawn mixed reactions until now, with many commenting on his lack of experience and bravado. During a three-day rally in Punjab, he was seen dancing and reciting all the iconic dialogues. The opposition particularly criticized him for bragging that he's second to none when beating people up. Sunny Deol says the people of Gurdaspur know what he is doing for them. It is yet to be seen how far Sunny Deol can make through politics based on his acting fame.
There have been many comments and speculations regarding the dynamics of the Deol family. Many people believe that the relationship between the family is completely broken. There have been rumors about infighting and bitterness. Deol's are not particularly public about their relations, but they've dropped hints about it in interviews. They have called their relationships as cordial as Hema Ji even narrated a story to explain their bond. She had gotten into an accident, and when Sunny heard about it, he was the first to meet her. Hema Ji was surprised by how much he cared about her and was interested in the process.
In the Hema Malini Biography, Esha Deol mentioned that she considers Sunny as a father figure and Bobby as a brother. They all are extremely close to one another and have a warm relationship. However, considering that they didn't attend the wedding of Isha shows the family needs a lot more healing.
Sunny Deol is an actor whose screen presence and one oyee! Can shake up the cinema halls.We believe that Sunny Deol needs to tap into the actor side and make a return like Bobby Deol.
