It has been two years since Sunny Deol was last seen on the big screen in a worthwhile role. The film was APNE (2007), which was a box office success. Since then he has been seen in supporting roles in KAAFILA (2007) and HEROES (2008) but hasn't been able to regain his lost glory. Now he would be making a comeback with Fox the shooting of which finally wrapped up a fortnight back and is now aiming for release before year end.
Director Deepak Tijori is ecstatic that his multi starrer finally gets into the post production. My magnum opus is finally ready', says Tijori in light humour while obviously hinting at the slight delay that this multi crore film has seen during last few months, 'Just one week's worth of work was left otherwise the film would have been ready around six months back.'
With the principal shooting for FOX coming to an end, what happens next?
CHECK OUT : Sunny Deol rocks Ludhiana!
'The film of this stature requires an intense and extended post production', Tijori says, 'It should take anywhere near three months. We should in all likelihood bring our film in the last quarter of 2009.'Well, Sunny fans would certainly be wishing that this indeed happens as they have been starved of a film starring him in a major role for quite a while now. Prior to Apne (which also starred Dharmendra and Bobby Deol), his last major money spinner was THE HERO (2003). Ever since then he has acted in quite a few films in a solo lead but none of them has been able to make an impact.
Whether it is FOOL N FINAL, BIG BROTHER , NAKSHA, TEESRI AANKH - THE HIDDEN CAMERA, JO BOLE SO NIHAAL, LAKEER, KHEL OR JAAL - THE TRAP, all of which released between APNE & THE HERO each of them has been a disappointment for both Sunny Deol and his fans. Now one waits, watches and hopes that with Deepak Tijori directed FOX, Sunny Deol finally makes a worthy comeback at the box office and wins his fans all over again.
Fox is a modern sleek thriller shot in the exotic locales of Goa and Mumbai. It is a story about a cat and mouse chase between a young successful criminal lawyer (Arjun Rampal) and a mysterious stranger who is controlling and threatening his life. Now the lawyer must seek the help of a reluctant cop (Sunny Deol) in solving the mystery.
