Father-son will have a face off on screen

Talking about adding Karan to the team, Rajkumar Santoshi says, “I always saw a promise in Karan whenever I met him at Sunny’s house or office. I spoke to Aamir, and he also said yes to audition him, and he came out with flying colours. I am confident that he will deliver and will stand against one of the most dynamic actors of our time, Sunny Deol. He will stand strong opposite him.” Ask him if it means the father-son will have a face off on screen and he answers in the affirmative. “Yes. There are some dramatic situations in the film that you will see.”

Sunny ‘very happy’ about working with Karan

Sharing Sunny’s reaction to him casting Karan Deol, the director shares, “He was very happy. Sunny and I have done some very good films like Ghatak and Damini. So, he has the faith and trust in my abilities as a director to extract a good performance from my actors. It’s important to bring Karan’s talent and potential in front of the audience, so Sunny was very happy. Karan is very hardworking and sincere. I am confident he will live up to the expectations. He will proudly take forward his father and grandfather’s (actor, Dharmendra) name.”

With Lahore 1947, Preity Zinta also makes her comeback to films and having shot for 25 days already, Santoshi is all praise for her. “Preity is coming back after a gap, and she is a wonderful actress. She has performed really well.”
