There was also a time in Sunny Deol’s life when he was unable to meet his father Dharmendra. Actually, Dharmendra had to face crores of losses because of his son.
Sunny Deol, who gave many superhit films in his film career, once disappointed Papa Dharmendra. Dharmendra had to suffer crores of losses because of his son. We are talking about 1999, when Sunny Deol wanted to make the film ‘London’ with Bobby Deol and Karisma. For this, he had signed director Gurinder Chadha. The shooting of the film started, but within a few days there was an argument between Sunny and Gurinder about the film.
After Gurinder Chadha left the film, Sunny decided to direct the film himself. Sunny changed the name of this film to ‘Dillagi’ and replaced Karisma with actress Urmila Matondkar. This film made under the direction of Sunny Deol was then ready in 60 crores. Despite being a good starcast, the film was a flop badly. The film did a business of only 21 crores at the box office. Dharmendra’s money was invested in this film, due to which he had a loss of crores. After the loss of crores in the film, Sunny was unable to get eyes from Papa Dharmendra.
Sunny Deol has been a strong actor who has worked in brilliant films like Vishwatma, Ghayal, Ghatik, Damini, Gadar: Ek Prem Katha, Ziddi, but he did not get that success in terms of direction.
