Sunny Deol's post comes after Salman Khan-starrer Tiger 3's worldwide box office collection crossed the ₹300 crore milestone.
Salman Khan received praise from Sunny Deol for the box office performance of his most recent film, Tiger 3. Late on Monday night, Sunny posted an unseen picture of himself with Salman on his Instagram account.
Sunny placed his arm around Salman's shoulder as they posed for the cameras in the never-before-seen photo. Sunny wore a grey t-shirt under a jacket, while Salman looked sharp in a blue shirt.
In the caption of his post, Sunny Deol wrote, “Jeet gaye”.
Tiger 3 is getting close to earning Rs 400 crore at the worldwide box office. Sunny's backing of Salman comes after Tiger's box office success started out strong but dropped down in the days that followed. Despite being released on a Sunday and during the Diwali festival, the movie made a whopping Rs 43 crore on its first day of release.
Fans speculated that there would be a sequel to Salman and Sunny's 1996 movie Jeet based on the caption. A fan commented, "Who agrees for Jeet 2 ?" Another one wrote, "Please collaborate in a movie and show what is jeet🔥" "Jeet 2 loading," another comment read. A fan also commented, "2 Bollywood Ke Sher Ek Saath ❤️🔥🤌🏻"
Raj Kanwar directed Jeet, which featured characters entangled in a romantic triangle played by Salman Khan, Sunny Deol, and Karisma Kapoor.
