In a recent interview, Sunny Deol was asked about his thoughts on Dharmendra’s iconic kissing scene in the film. He candidly praised his father’s ability to pull off any role with ease and grace. Sunny shared, “My dad can do anything and he’s the only actor I would say, who can carry it off. I didn’t see it, I have heard about it. I have not watched the film. Filmein itni dekhta nahi hoon main (I don’t watch films much). Main khud ki picture kayi baar nahi dekhta (I often don’t watch my own films).”
When quizzed about whether he discussed the scene with Dharmendra, 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 (He can carry everything)… because of his humbleness, honesty.” Indeed, Dharmendra and Shabana Azmi’s charm and versatility as an actor are unparalleled, and his fearlessness in embracing challenging roles continues to inspire generations of artists.
