Sunny Deol: ‘I am Not Only an Anxious Father, But Also a Tense Producer”

Ahead of his son Karan’s debut in Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas, Sunny Deol shares his fears and hopes

Sunny Deol admits he was never so nervous about his own  debut as he is about his son Karan’s debut. “When my debut happened I was chilled out.  It was my father who  was nervous. And look at how history repeats  itself. Today I am the nervous father waiting for my son’s film to release,” says  Sunny with  a disbelieving chuckle.

For this anxious father, the  pressures are multitudinous. Of late  Sunny has been  giving multi-tasking a  new definition. “I am not just an anxious father I am also the  director and  producer  of  Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas. For months and weeks I’ve been running here there and  everywhere. Even now when there are only a few  days  left before release  I  am  trying to be at  five different  places  at  the same time,” sighs Sunny, like  a  father  running around  for  his  offspring’s wedding.

It’s been a  long journey for Sunny Deol, from gawky debutant in Betaab  to a  tense father  of a debutant  in Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas. Says the proud father, “Karan is so much more confident than I was when I came into films. I had no clue about anything like  camera angles and  shot takings. Karan is fully clued into it. He is sincere hard-working, focused and very clear  about what he wants  to do. We’ve worked very hard  on Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas. I hope all those people who have supported me and my father will also welcome Karan.”

Scarily, Pal Pal  Dil Ke Paas  opens with the latest  instalment  of Sylvester Stallone’s Rambo franchise. Sunny shrugs off the competition. “There will always be  some film or the other on the same Friday. You  have  to believe in  your  film.”
