“Even If I Want To, Karan And I Can’t Be Friends” – Sunny Deol On His Relationship With His Son

Karan Deol, Sunny Deol

If you grew up in the 80s and 90s, you’ll know that Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol were a massive part of our lives (if you followed Indian films of course). The two brothers were insanely popular and I can’t think of a single person who didn’t know Sunny’s ‘dhai kilo ka haath‘ dialogue. It’s been years since those days and Sunny now has a son of his own who’s all set to be launched in the big, bad world of Bollywood.

Just like how he was launched by his father Dharmendra many many moons ago, Sunny has taken it upon himself to launch his son Karan in his next directorial venture Pal Pal Kil Ke Paas under his home productions – Vijayta Films. Ahead of this new chapter, Sunny spoke with Midday about his relationship with his father.

I still cannot see eye to eye with my father, Dharmendra. His fear will always remain. Even now, if I’m doing anything wrong, the thought of dad getting its knowledge scares me out. Daddy keeps asking us why don’t you’ll come downstairs and talk to me. Whenever we sit together, we talk for few moments and then there’s nothing to talk about. What to talk, just can’t understand. My daddy was never strict, but still, since childhood, we have fewer conversations with each other.

Aww. I guess some things never change, no matter how old you get. Am I right? He then went on to talk about his relationship with his son Karan.

Even if I want to, Karan and I can’t be friends. He shares his secrets with me but maintains a distance. You can call it his reservation or respect towards me.He then spoke about how life has come a full circle.
Life has come a full circle. My father launched me and now, I am launching my son. Karan is extremely passionate about his acting career and I am sure he will make everyone proud. I’m glad he will be making his debut with Zee Studios backing the project. I have full conviction in them and that they will leave no stone unturned to give the film its due.How sweet! Wishing you all the best, Karan. :) Can’t wait to see what this father-son duo come up with.
