Gadar 2 actor Sunny Deol speaks about his father, Dharmendra’s on-screen kissing scene with actress Shabana Azmi in Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani
Veteran actor Dharmendra made his silver screen comeback with Karan Johar’s Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani recently. The star was cast alongside iconic actress Shabana Azmi. After the release, a still from the film featuring Dharmendra and Shabana kissing has gone viral on the internet making netizens go in awe of their heartwarming chemistry. Now Dharmendra’s son, actor Sunny Deol has come forward revealing he has not spoken to his father about the scene but feels that his dad is the only actor who can pull it off.
In a recent interview with NDTV, Sunny spoke about the kissing scene claiming that he has not watched the film but has heard about it. He also said that his father can do anything, and he is the only actor who can carry it off.
The actor was also asked whether he has spoken to his father about the scene to which Sunny replied, "No! I mean how can I talk to my dad about that? He is a personality, who can... kuch bhi cheez carry kar sakte hain woh... because of his humbleness, honesty..."
Speaking to News18 about the kissing scene, Dharmendra had earlier said, “I am hearing that Shabana and I have surprised the audience with the kissing scene, and at the same time they have even applauded it. I think people weren’t expecting it and it came very suddenly which is why it created an impact. The last time I did a kissing scene was in Life In A Metro with Nafisa Ali and at that time too people had appreciated it.”
He also revealed that during the narration of the film he realised that the scene was something that the film required. “Age is just a number and two people irrespective of age will show their love for each other by kissing. Shabana and I both did not feel any kind of awkwardness while doing it as it was very aesthetically shot,” the actor elaborated.
Along with Shabana and Dharmendra, Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani also features Alia Bhatt, Ranveer Singh and Jaya Bachchan in lead roles. The Karan Johar directorial film has already crossed the 100-crore mark at the box office in the first 10 days of its release.
On the work front, Sunny is currently gearing up for the release of his upcoming film Gadar 2 which is scheduled to hit the theatres on August 11. The Anil Sharma film also stars Ameesha Patel and Utkarsh Sharma.
