“I was very fortunate. I started with Rahul. He gave me three beautiful films. Some worked, some didn’t. But till today, people remember those films. I am standing here because of my films. After Gadar, which was a massive hit, my struggle period had started because subjects or scripts were not offered to me and things were not happening. Even though I did some films in between, there was a gap of 20 years. But I did not give up. I was always moving forward. I joined films because I wanted to become an actor, not a star. I had seen the films of my father and I too wanted to do films of that variety,” he was quoted as saying by Indian Express.com.
Rajkumar Santoshi added, “I believe that the industry has not done justice to Sunny’s talent. But God has done justice.” The director’s statement left Sunny Deol in tears.
