Bollywood veteran Sunny Deol has been on a promotional spree for his recent release, “Gadar 2,” which has set the box office ablaze, amassing a staggering ₹510 crore nett in India since its August 11 release. In a sneak peek of his upcoming appearance on “Aap Ki Adalat,” Sunny Deol can be seen getting emotional as he discusses the immense love and appreciation he’s received for his role in the film.
Tears of Joy
During the interview, host Rajat Sharma inquired about the reason behind Sunny’s emotional response. In a heartfelt moment, the actor replied, “Jis tarah se ye log khush ho rahe hai… jo maine kiya hai… to yakeen nahi ho raha ki main iske layak hoon ya nahi (The way people are being happy, to what I have done in Gadar 2, I don’t know if I truly deserve this).” The studio audience erupted in cheers, whistles, and applause as Sunny entered the set, making the moment even more emotional.
Sunny Deol shared several clips from the upcoming episode, where he also addressed accusations made against him by individuals in Pakistan.
Response to Accusations from Pakistan
One of the accusations from Pakistan pertained to an incident 22 years ago when Sunny had allegedly removed a hand pump, causing water shortages. To this, Sunny responded in his character’s persona, saying, “Jab Tara Singh (his character in Gadar 2) aata hai apne pariwar ke liye toh usse koi rok nahi sakta (When Tara Singh comes for his family, no one can stop him).”
Another individual from Pakistan had issued a challenge to Sunny, claiming he would demonstrate his physical strength. Sunny, known for his on-screen persona, calmly replied, “Main ek actor hoon, jo ek character play karta hai. Usse personal na lein toh bahut acha hai. Aur jab ye baat aa gayi hai, aur kisi ne mujhse panga lena hai, toh aa jaye (I am an actor, who plays a character. So people should not take it personally. But now that someone wishes to fight me, he can do so).”
