Guys, I don’t know how I missed this memo. It suddenly struck me that we’ve been hearing a lot about Sunny Deol lately, even though he’d all but disappeared for a while. That prompted me to pull up his Wikipedia page and I realized that he is working on five films this year! Five! That’s more than some of the biggest actors in the country right now. And apparently some of his films have even slipped into the post-production phase and I’ve only just heard about them… like the one he’s doing with Sakshi Tanwar, of Bade Acche Lagte Hain fame.
Sakshi says she’s already finished her part of the film, titled Mohalla Assi, where she plays Sunny’s wife. The film is based on the novel Kashi Ka Assi, and is set in 1980s Benaras. And while Sakshi has done a few cameos in films before, she says this is a bit different – she’s got more screen-time and a stronger character. So… that’s gonna be one interesting pairing.
And if you’re wondering, these are the other films Sunny has lined up:
Singh Saheb The Great
Yamla Pagla Deewana 2
