Sunny Deol says his son Kunal, who is making his debut as an assistant director with Yamla Pagla Deewana 2, is ready to make his Bollywood debut as an actor. The 56-year-old said that his son is reading through some scripts and is waiting for the right opportunity. "He is soon going to join films as an actor. He is going to be 21 plus and has done a few courses in acting. He has assisted the director in YPD, he raps," he writes.
"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.
