Sunny Deol is basking in the success of his movie Gadar 2 which has turned out to be a roaring success at the box office. However, amidst this, the actor was also embroiled in a controversy wherein his Juhu bungalow was speculated to go to auction due to non-payment of dues worth Rs 59 crore. Now, Sunny has also revealed that he will not direct or produce any movie since he goes bankrupt with the same.
Talking about the same, Sunny Deol told BBC Asian Network that every time he produces a movie, he goes ‘bankrupt.’ The Ghayal actor went on to say, “The world has become very difficult. Years back, I could control things because distribution was normal. They were people we interacted with. There was a connection. Ever since the corporates have come in, there's nothing. For an individual to stand tall over there, it's difficult. You have to do your PR and run around, and they won't give you your number of theatres. They don't want individuals to be there. I had a tough time with my films in this past decade. You're trying to do a certain kind of cinema, but you don't get the backing.”
Furthermore, Sunny Deol emphasized that he will now solely focus on acting. The Betaab actor added, “That's what I came in for. I became a producer, and a director, wearing too many hats. A man can only do one job. So I said, ‘Throw everything away, just become an actor.’ So that's what I want to do now. Do as many films as I can as an actor.”
There were also speculations that Akshay Kumar had agreed to help Sunny Deol financially in repaying his dues. However, the OMG 2 actor’s team denied the same. The news of the auction was also later turned out to be false as backed by the bank.
