Sunny Deol didn’t return the signing amount of my incomplete film, his intentions were wrong: Suneel Darshan

Suneel Darshan and Sunny Deol

Not many know that filmmaker Suneel Darshan and actor Sunny Deol have been entangled in a legal battle for over 25 years now. The fight is for their film ‘Ajay’ (1996) which Suneel claimed that Sunny left incomplete and refused to finish the ending. And it’s also said that the filmmaker released the film without the ending. Even though the film did fare at the box office, still both Suneel and Sunny got into this legal battle. 

In an interview recently, Suneel revealed more about the fight which is still on between the two. “Sunny has ‘big time ego’ issues. Even after 26-years, my fight with him is on. Initially, he promised me that he’ll return my money, but later said he doesn’t have money. Rather, he suggested making a film with him. Sunny even lied in the court that he doesn’t have money, so I should do a film with him,” said Suneel and added, “I was working with his brother (Bobby Deol) that time and even did three movies with Bobby back-to-back. I thought everyone makes mistakes, so it’ fine, but Sunny fooled me.”

The war continued and Sunny kept postponing the dates of the shoot. “The contract period of the film passed and my lawyer sent Sunny legal notice to which Sunny’s legal team replied that he’s yet to approve the film’s dialogue. Have you ever heard any actor approving dialogues of the film? His intentions were always wrong. A lot of time and money was wasted in this film. It has been a race since then, you know how court cases are,” said Suneel.

The Kashmir Files felt like propaganda, vulgar and inappropriate: Israeli director, Nadav Lapid

One film that was much talked about and gathered controversy this year is ‘The Kashmir Files’. And actor Anupam Kher, who played a central role in the film, is applauded for his acting. But, a recent video released from the film festival has gone viral. The video shows IFFI Jury Head, Nadav Lapid making controversial remarks about the film. And it’s confirmed by a team member of IFFI that the Israeli filmmaker made the remark at the closing ceremony.

“I would like to thank the head of the festival and the director of the programming for the cinematic richness of the programme, for its diversity, for its complexity. It was intense. We saw seven films in the debutant competition, and 15 films in the international competition, the front window of the festival. 14 out of them had cinematic qualities, defaults and evoked vivid discussions,” said Nadav Lapid in his speech.

Calling ‘The Kashmir Files’ ‘propaganda’ and ‘vulgar’, he further added, “We all were shocked and disturbed after watching ‘The Kashmir Files’. The film felt like propaganda, vulgar and inappropriate for an artistic competitive section of such a prestigious film festival. I don’t mind sharing my feelings openly in front of you all. In the spirit of this festival, I’m ready to accept a critical discussion, which is important for art and life.”

These statements of Lapid didn’t go well with actor Anupam Kher. He tweeted, “No matter how high the height of the lie is.. It is always small in comparison to the truth.” The actor also attached pictures from ‘The Kashmir Files’ and Steven Spielberg’s film ‘Schindler’s List’ with his tweet.

Ananya is aware of the fact that showbiz is a very tricky business: Chunky Panday

Chunky Panday

Vijay Deverakonda and Ananya Panday starrer ‘Liger’ turned out to be a failure at the box office. It was Vijay’s debut in Bollywood and Ananya’s first bilingual film too. But the film didn’t shape up the way it was expected and even Ananya’s father-actor Chunky Panday agrees to it. 

Talking about Liger’s failure, Chunky expressed, “Any actor gives his or her 100 percent to a film. And after you finish it, you go out of your way to promote the film. And these days promotional activities are a trend where you even go into masses urging fans to watch it. But sometimes things go wrong and we are depressed about it. And it’s okay, that’s an obvious reaction for any actor to feel devastated. Success or failure can happen with any film, an artist has to live with it and just move on. I’m sure my daughter (Ananya) is aware of the fact that showbiz is a very tricky business.” 

Having said that, Chunky feels that one should not ‘overconfident’ or ‘underestimate’ anything in the film industry. “On a film set, almost around 400 people work. And as an actor, we don’t get to see each and every thing as a whole. We are aware of only portions of what’s happening but we don’t know what’s going to be the end result. So, it’s better to take things as they come,” Chunky stated.
