Bollywood veteran actor Sunny Deol has revealed that he is not a fan of remakes. He said that he will never approve of his son Karan Deol to work in a remake of any of his films, or rather, any remake at all. "I would not like to see my son in any such roles," stated the Gadar: Ek Prem Katha actor. "Those films were made at a time that was different from the present. People still remember me for those roles. If you do the same thing with any other actor and set it in a different atmosphere, then it will not be easy to justify it."
Sunny was also critical of the music being produced nowadays and opined that remixing old songs will not help the new artists create their legacy. "Each era - the '60s, '70s, '80s or the '90s - has its own music," he said. "What is happening now? A few years from now, when they ask what did you create, the current generation will say, we remixed music. So, what did you all actually do? What did you all create?" He then suggested that producers and singers should start making songs and music of their own. "I think it is time now that every person, who has reached the peak of their career or wishes to scale the heights, should ask himself, do I want to be known for what I have created or for remaking something?" he inquired.
Currently, Sunny is working on a project called Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas, which is supposed to be a launching pad for his son Karan’s acting career. However, he has clearly said that he didn’t want to direct the movie in the first place. "Everything comes with a challenge. For my son's film, I tried my level best to get the best of directors. People think we can get the best names on board in no time. But the reality is different," he said. Sunny concluded that Karan will have to form his own identity as an actor to push himself out of the shadow of his father and his grandfather, Dharmendra.
