Rajveer Deol is all set to make his acting debut with the film ‘Dono’, co-starring Paloma Dhillon, the daughter of Poonam Dhillon.
Now in a recent interview with Siddharth Kannan, the young actor talked about the experience of seeing his father Sunny Deol and brother Karan Deol struggle in the past couple of years. While Sunny had a two-decade long slow period until the massive success of his last release ‘Gadar 2’, Rajveer’s brother Karan too failed to perform critically or commercially in 2019.
In the interview, Rajveer mentioned how the entire Deol family was pinching itself when ‘Gadar 2’ made over Rs 520 crore at the domestic box office. Not to miss, the film is currently the third-biggest Hindi movie of all time in India.
Rajveer further stated that the resurgence was needed for his father, who was among the biggest Hindi film stars during the ’80s and ’90s.
Revealing the mood after ‘Gadar 2’ at the Deol household, Rajveer said, “For 22 years, I’ve seen him struggle and work. There were no days off. When people come up to me and say that an actor’s life is very easy, they just travel around… They must’ve seen other actors and felt that. I just get very angry, because I’ve seen how much my dad works, and how much family time he sacrifices to go out there and do something. So, to see him finally land a hit with ‘Gadar 2’, he deserves it. I don’t know how to describe that joyful feeling, I couldn’t believe it.”
Sunny also directed ‘Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas’ to launch Rajveer’s brother, Karan. Asked if talked with Karan after the movie tanked at the box office, Rajveer said that “they understand each other’s emotions perfectly without having to verbalise them. ”
Lastly, Rajveer mentioned that he has learnt one thing from his grandfather Dharmendra and Sunny is to never give up, because you never know when your time comes.
‘Dono’ is helmed by Sooraj Barjatya’s son Avnish, and it will release on October 5, 2023.
