Sunny Deol was known as the ‘action king of Bollywood’ back in the day. This week on The Front Row, Anupama Chopra asks him about box-office success and failures and what winning means to him. Here’s what he said.
Anupama Chopra: Sunny, you have seen such highs and lows in these 30 years. The blockbuster successes of films like Gadar and lows of films like your directorial debut Yeh Dillagi, not working out. How have you kept to this middle path?
Sunny Deol: I am a sportsman. You win a match, you lose a match, you win a match, you lose a match, that’s how life is and when you lose, you get educated about how you played. That’s how I take my life. And then definitely there is destiny. At times there are certain films which are really utter rubbish but they run. May be that’s destiny for them. So one cannot crib and grumble about all these things. Life is like this. As long as you are happy and you are in control of yourself, you do not let your brain go berserk, that is what it should be.
Watch “The Front Row with Anupama Chopra” tonight at 8:30 pm on Star World for the full conversation with Sunny Deol.
