Reel to Real anger: When Sunny Deol ripped his jeans on the sets of ‘Darr’

Undoubtedly, megastar Amitabh Bachchan is the first actor who had introduced us and the moviegoers with the image of an angry young man in Hindi cinema. As time passed by, the period of the 90s witnessed yet another actor whose power-packed punches and strong personality (on the big screen) went on to make him the undisputed king of action films. No points for guessing, it was actor Sunny Deol. Veteran actor Dharmendra’s elder son, Sunny has made his own mark in Bollywood with films like ‘Arjun’, ‘Ghayal’, ‘Tridev’, ‘Damini – Lightning’, ‘Border’, ‘Gadar: Ek Prem Katha’, and many more. There’s no actor who can match his dialogue delivery, which even helped Sunny in cementing his image as an action hero among the audiences. But, during the peak of his career, there came a time when the actor faced the worst experience of his life while shooting for a film. And his popular onscreen anger wasn’t restricted to only performing his scenes.

The film was late filmmaker Yash Chopra’s psychological thriller ‘Darr’ (1993). Yes! It was the same classic that later brought the then newcomer Shah Rukh Khan into the limelight. Recently, our eyes caught hold of an interview of Sunny Deol where he recalled and opened up about an incident when he let his anger get the better of him. Thanks to his anger issues the actor ended up ripping his jeans back then. Yes! you read that right. (Also Check: When Aamir Khan and Sunny Deol decided to not work with Yash Chopra)

During the actor’s conversation with host Rajat Sharma on his show ‘Aap Ki Adalat’, the latter asked him about his anger while he was shooting for ‘Darr’. To this, Sunny first smiled and replied saying, “No! sometimes there are some things that I find hard to believe and relate to (while shooting them). I sense that it might not be right, so it makes me uncomfortable, ultimately feeling discomfort within myself. And same was the case with this film. I remember it was while shooting for the scene when Shah Rukh’s character stabs me with a knife. So, I had a lot of debate that my character is that of a trained commando officer, so how can this boy hit me so easily? I mean, he can stab me if my character is looking somewhere else. But, if I can see him attacking me with a knife and I do nothing, so what I am a commando for right?”

“So, the debate was going on for this. Jisme mereko pata nahi mereko laga… because I always respect my elders (referring to director Yash Chopra) and that’s the reason I was not understanding what to do, kyunki main kuch keh nahi sakta. So, that time I got so much angry that I stuffed my hands into the jeans pockets, and I didn’t know it was so much anger that actually I ripped the jeans I was wearing. Uske baad maine dekha ke someone was running here and someone started running there and they were all scared, jabke main kisiko kuch nahi keh raha tha. I was not understanding myself at that time what was my mistake.” added the actor.

We can only wonder the level of frustration Sunny Deol would have gone through which eventually came out in such a fashion.

In fact, post the release of ‘Darr’, Sunny Deol also said in one of his interviews that he will never work with Yash Chopra again as he isn’t a man of his words. Certainly, the actor has no good memories of working with him and perhaps that’s the reason that till date, Sunny Deol has never worked again in any of the films produced under Yash Raj Films banner as well.

Recently, we stumbled upon an old interview of Anushka Sharma where the actress revealed an interesting incident. Anushka revealed when she got to know that her mother Ashima Sharma always wanted her to be an actress.

It was during Anushka’s conversation on show ‘India’s Most Desirable’ when after listening to her mother Ashima Sharma’s message that had been recorded for her, the actress asked host Simi Garewal if she can say something about her mum. And then the actress went on to share this incident from the time when she had got the news of been signed on for ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’. (Also Read: Did you know? Little Abhishek Bachchan found his mother’s films very depressing)

She said, “There was this one time I was driving back from Yash Raj Studios and I got the news, Adi (Aditya Chopra) told me. And I was driving back and I couldn’t drive anymore because I was crying. I was so happy.. I was crying. So I stopped… I stopped the car and I pulled over and I called my mother and I told her that I got this film. And you know what my mum told me? There’s this turtle that used to be there in my living room. It was I think some Feng Shui thing. You just open the turtle and you put something like a wish inside that turtle and you shut it. And when your wish comes true you take it out. So she never never told me about this. But then she came down after she heard that I have got the film she opened that and showed it to me. She’d written it there ‘I hope my daughter stars in a Yash Raj film’. I swear… it’s unbelievable. So I think somewhere she always wanted me to be an actress.”

Upon hearing this, Simi reacted, “What are you saying?” Anushka added, “She said that she’d written this long ago, one thing for my brother and one thing for me.” Simi immediately asked if what was written for her brother came true as well, to which, Anushka nodded her head in agreement. And then when Simi asked Anushka if she (Simi) could write something in this magical, wish-fulfilling turtle, Anushka smiled and said, “You have to meet my mom right (smiles) she has some direct contact with God.”

Indeed, every parent wishes the best for his/her children and this incident is something that showcases this perfectly. Unbelievable, unforgettable, and totally lovable.

For a young kid, it is really hard to believe and understand that his/her parents are getting divorced. This difficult time was hit on actor Shahid Kapoor, who was just three years old when his parents Pankaj Kapur and Neelima Azeem got separated from each other. In his first growing years, Shahid lived and spent much more time with his mother in Delhi at that time. The actor mother believes that as a single divorced woman bringing up a child would have been hard for his mother but nobody can understand this better than her. But, as a mother, for Neelima Azeem her son Shahid turned her strength when he was just four years old.

And it was his mother Neelima herself who shared (through a special message) a heart touching incident between her and little Shahid. It was during the actor’s conversation when the host asked him that did his mother ever tell him about what she was going through, her kind of personal turmoil or did she not. To which, Shahid replied, “We were friends, so I mean we kind of spoke about everything. I spoke about how I felt, she spoke about how she felt.” (Also Read: Shahid Kapoor’s first heartbreak: Two most painful minutes of his life)

As he finished saying this, it was Neelima Azeem’s voice that was heard then. Her message recorded for him was played on a LED TV screen where she said, “Something so personal I want to share here with you is that when he was only four years old I mean obviously there were moments when at night I used to you know sometimes let go of the pain and the fears that come along with the divorce especially when you are as young as that. And I remember that I was… he found me crying maybe at some late hour at night and he took me on his chest at four years and he said ‘Mumma why you crying you know Main Hoon Na.’ I mean literally that film came (later on) and he said ‘Main Hoon Na’. And I don’t know from there onwards it just.. it just hit me that he is there with me you know and there is nothing to worry.”

On hearing this, Simi immediately asked, “Even now! You’re still there for her.” Shahid took a slight pause and replied, “I hope I am. But, when you become an adult and when you start working around the clock I always live with the guilt that I don’t give enough time to my family. So I hope I’m there for her.”

Shahid even mentioned in the show that his mother Neelima had never made him feel a hard time and her pain, being she was very good with that to hide.

Indeed, it is such a heart touching incident to remember shared by Shahid’s mother.
