Just when Sunny Deol is standing at a crucial juncture of his career with two big films releasing in four weeks' time, an age-old film of his is threatening to spoil it all. The fact is that his much-delayed film The Challenge is scheduled for release on 18th of this month.
Come June 1 and Sunny's brand new exciting film Fool N Final would make a global release. Four weeks later, that is on June 29th, he is expected to create fire works once again as he comes together with director Anil Sharma who brings the entire Deol family on screen for the first time ever in Apne.
With films boasting of such good credentials, it is imperative to expect a lot from Sunny this summer. But ironically this is the period that producer-director KC Bokadia has chosen for the release of his film The Challenge that was made four or five years back.
Co-starring Tabu, Farida Jalal, Ashish Vidyarthi and Govind Namdeo, The Challenge is one of those films that Sunny had signed in the wake of the success of Gadar - Ek Prem Katha. In the film, Sunny plays a Muslim character named Hussain, who is a truck driver by profession and gets caught in the web of deceit, conspiracy and back stabbing, as he ends up being labeled as a terrorist.
The film almost made it to the theatres many a time in the past, especially last year, but this time around, it looks like it will hit the silver screens as scheduled. It is planned for released on May 18 before the release of Sunny's two other big films.
Wonder if Sunny will be happy with this blast from the past!
