There may be a gap of over 35 years between Sunny Deol and newbie Urvashi Rautela. However that hasn’t deterred filmmaker Anil Sharma from being sure about presenting the two together as a couple in his comeback film SINGH SAAB THE GREAT. Confident that he has launched quite a few girls in B-Town before as well in his career spanning over three decades, the GADAR director is truly confident that the ex-Miss Universe has it in her to make a dent in the B-Town.

“His confidence comes from the fact that despite making male-centric films over a period of time, women in his films have always enjoyed prominent place in the narrative. Priyanka Chopra made her Bollywood debut made her debut in THE HERO opposite Sunny Deol and made an impact despite Preity Zinta being the main lead. Ameesha Patel played the role of a mother in her very second film GADAR – EK PREM KATHA despite being seen in a glamorous part in KAHO NAA PYAAR HAI.Another debutant, Zarine Khan, had a good part to play as a princess in VEER with Salman in lead,” narrates a close associate of the director.
Now that Urvashi Rautela is making her debut in Sharma’s SINGH SAAB THE GREAT, the director is naturally all praise for his newest find.
“I wanted someone really beautiful as Sunny’s wife and then I found her,” says Sharma about the 20 year old who hails from Nainital, “She is very down to earth and comes from a very good family. Everything is very nice about her. She will surprise you big time.”
With her director high on her looks and talent, the job is for Urvashi to make it all count once the film releases all over on 22nd November.
