Mumbai: Bollywood macho man Sunny Deol might have played a Sikh character in many of his films, including his last release ‘Singh Saab The Great’, but the actor will be seen playing a Haryanvi character for the very first time in upcoming action-thriller ‘Dishkiyaoon’, which released today.
Producer Shilpa Shetty, who has worked with Sunny in the past and is quite impressed with the way Sunny has pulled off the role, said, “Actors can get complacent after spending many years in the industry. Sunny is usually not the kind to do any homework, but he learnt Haryanvi lehza (diction) for this role.”
On his part, Sunny said, “I have played Punjabi characters many times before and wanted to do something different. My character Lakhwa is quite different from the roles that I have played in the past. Lakhwa is not shy of who he is. He is what he is. And like any normal person, he is good for some and not so nice to others, which makes the character all the more interesting.”
Eros International and ESM’s Dishkiyaoon directed by Sanamjit Singh Talwar starring Harman Baweja, Sunny Deol and Ayesha Khanna is out at a theater near you today.
