Sunny Deol's youngest son, Rajveer Deol is all set to make his acting debut with Avnish Barjatya's coming-of-age romance film, Dono. While the star kid is super excited, it is his father, Sunny Deol, who isn't happy. For those who don't know, the Deol family is extremely practical, and they know success is not served on a platter. It is one of the major reasons why Sunny Deol didn't want his younger son to enter the world of acting.
Ever since the teaser of Rajveer's film, Dono made rounds on the internet, fans have been eager to watch the film. Recently, during an event, Rajveer revealed that his parents didn't like the fact that he wanted to be an actor. The young debutant also added that his parents wanted him to study and not enter this line as it is unpredictable. He also took a dig at his father and how he got his hit after 22 years. Rajveer was quoted as saying:
"My parents hated the fact that I wanted to be an actor. They wished I studied or done something else in this life because this line is so unpredictable. You are happy for one second, you are miserable, getting work. I mean dad got a hit after 22 years so they were worried how such a mentally draining line. Unfortunately, I just fell in love with acting. I just couldn’t get enough of it. Even now, they wish I did something else and not this."
Sunny Deol made his directorial debut in 1999 with the film, Dillagi, and he last produced a film in 2019 for his son, Karan Deol. Recently, in an interview with BBC Asian Network, Sunny talked about his film production journey. He shared that every time he produced a film, he went 'bankrupt'. He further added that it is because of the new dynamics in the film production and his inability to wear too many hats.
Sunny further added that he had a tough time with his films in the past decade. The actor called it super difficult. He was quoted as saying:
"Because I go bankrupt. The world has become very difficult. Years back, I could control things because distribution was normal. They were people we interacted with. There was a connection. Ever since the corporates have come in, there's nothing. For an individual to stand tall over there, it's difficult. You have to do your PR, run around, and they won't give you your number of theatres. They don't want individuals to be there. I had a tough time with my films in this past decade. You're trying to do a certain kind of cinema, but you."
