Sunny Deol has revealed that both his sons — Karan and Rajveer — are interested in acting and will make their Bollywood debut soon.
Sunny says he is directing his eldest son 23-year-old Karan’s maiden film next year which will be followed by Rajveer’s launch.
“Both Karan and Rajveer want to be actors. I will launch Karan next year as he will turn 24. I will be directing the film. Then we will focus on Rajveer,” Sunny said during a session at Agenda Aaj Tak.
The “Gadar” actor says as opposed to the general notion, star kids don’t have it easy in the film industry as there is a lot more pressure on them than actors from non-film background.
“I don’t think it’s only star kids but a lot of newcomers who are coming into the film industry without any connections. I feel it’s more difficult for star kids to make it in the movie industry.”
Sunny is gearing up for the release if his next film “Ghayal Once Again” which he has also written and directed. The film is the sequel to 1990 super hit action drama “Ghayal”.
The actor says he decided to make the film as the story is very relevant in today’s times.
“I wanted to make the film because I felt that the situations have not changed much. Rather I think as a society we have gone down. This is very relevant.”
The film produced by Sunny’ father Dharmendra, which also stars Soha Ali Khan and Om Puri, and will release on January 15.
Sunny’s father had tried his hands in politics but the actor says he has no such aspiration.
“When dad joined politics we didn’t know what it was like. I will never get into politics.”
