Sunny Deol: I don't watch hindi films!

YAMLA PAGLA DEEWANA PHIRR SE which is the third instalment of YPD series.

Although the second one didn’t go well, the third one part which is released today is garnering mixed reviews.

The film stars Sunny Deol, Bobby Deol, Dharmendra and Kriti Kulkarni.

While the song, Rafta Rafta is a foot-tapping number and everyone seems to grooving on it. In the trailer we saw Sunny Deol’s epic dialogue and whistle blew the moment he mouths the dialogue.

In conversation with Sunny Deol as he speaks about, his journey in films, why is he doesn’t get roles he wishes for and how’s it coming back with YPD.

Speaking about YPD, he said, “It’s great to be back on YPD series. It’s a joy working with dad as I get to learn so much from him. We are aware that the second instalment didn’t go well and then came the third one,this is a completely different story, we’re trying to bind two communities i.e Punjab and Gujarat. Apart from that, the story is different. Dad has got a different role to enact.”

Sunny has always been coined as the action hero, while he has entertained us in previous instalments of YPD, when asked him how does he feel about doing comedy to which he said, “I’m an actor and my work is to entertain my audience. Even if I’m good at action films, I need to do comedy film. Basically I need to do film which my viewers would like.”

Furthermore he added, “Maybe people see me and like me in an action film is maybe because none else can fit in that image. No matter if I do comedy or romance, people will remember me as an action-packed hero. So maybe I’ve created that image in the vision of viewers. So again I’d like to mention that we’re actors and we are supposed to do every kind of roles irrespective of our likes and dislikes. I’m also trying to do the same thing. At the end of the the characterization is what which bothers.”

When asked him whether Box-office numbers bothers him he says, “Well it doesn’t bother me in terms of collections or how many crores a film has made. For me the thing which bothers the most is opinions of viewers. Because it had happened numerous times that a film does great in terms of box-office collections, but collapses when it comes down to ratings and public opinions.”

As Rafta Rafta is garnering good response when asked Sunny how was it working with Salman he said, “I’m keen to do anything which has a good and sensible story line up. I was keen to work on a grey role but I won’t produce it. It was great working with Salman Khan. It was a very short phase though. For the same song we’ve Shatrugan Sinha sir on board. He’s my fathers mate, we had a great time shooting with them as well.”

We got a really surprising response when we asked about his last hindi movie he watched, with huge giggles he said, “I don’t remember which was the last hindi film I watched. I don’t watch hindi films at all. Moreover I prefer English films or Hollywood films. I loved ANT- and the WASP. It was so humourous that I literally hold my stomach and laughed out louder. So I haven’t watched any hindi movie in the recent times, I’ve watched many Hollywood movies and series because they inspire me to face challenges.”

On being asked what kind of roles does he prefer in future he says, “I am open to various roles but I think I am not offered romantic roles. Like GADAR was a romantic role the entire base of the film was on romance, but people find me doing more action films and mouthing dialogues.”
