"I tell him to work hard and there are no shortcuts to success. I cannot make him anything, I can only be there as a father," Sunny, who was in the capital to promote the sequel, told reporters. Karan has also rapped and written a song in the movie, which is a sequel to the 2011 comedy-drama starring veteran actor Dharmendra, Sunny, Bobby Deol, Neha Sharma and Australian model Kristina Akheeva. Making a sequel has become a trend in the industry lately but Sunny says unlike others he has not made the movie for money.
"Everybody is making sequels today but I believe they only work if there is something to it. You cannot just cash in on the sequel. I always wanted to make sequels to my movies like Ghayal... because I saw these English films like Rocky and wanted to see those characters again and again, but it didn't happen in Hindi cinema at that time. I put my hard work in something which I enjoy and not for the sake of money. But it is a trend and at the end of the day it's business so everybody is making sequels," he said. Directed by Sangeeth Sivan, YPD 2 will release on June 7.
