Sunny Deol’s highly anticipated titles including Chup and Gadar 2 are the talk of the tinsel town since their announcements. The actor has recently wrapped up his schedule with R Balki’s upcoming thriller and now gearing up for the Hindi remake of the 2018 Malayalam language film called Joseph. The forthcoming crime thriller remake will be helmed by M Padmakumar, who made the original film as well.

According to a report on Pinkvilla, a source close to the development revealed in the latest statement that the Gadar: Ek Prem Katha actor is looking to switch gears by signing on for some strong content-driven films and is more inclined towards the thriller space. The source added that Sunny was approached by Kamal Mukut, the producer of Joseph, and instantly said yes to the project as soon as he watched the Malayalam thriller film. 

The Joju George starrer Joseph also stars Dileesh Pothan, Athmiya Rajan and Malavika Menon in key roles. The Ghayal actor will be essaying the lead role as Joju in the Hindi remake.

Joseph is an investigative thriller, which stars Sunny as a retired police officer, who has unique and sharp investigative skills. 

Meanwhile, Sunny was last seen in the 2019 action thriller film Blank, which stars him alongside Karan Kapadia, Karanvir Sharma and Ishita Dutta. The senior actor also served as a director in the 2019 romance drama film Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas, which marks the debut of his son Karan Deol with Sahher Bambba.

Sunny is also in talks with R Balki’s anticipated project with Revathy and Shruti Haasan in an emotional family drama movie.
