Sunny Deol keen to make biopic on dad Dharmendra

The father and son will be seen together in the upcoming Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se 

Published: 21st August 2018

Sunny Deol says he is interested in making a biopic on his father and iconic actor Dharmendra, provided he gets a good writer and director to weave the story of the veteran's life in an interesting manner.

"Making biopics is a trend that is going on. It is a good idea and would be nice to make a film on him (Dharmendra), but only if we can get a good writer and director. It cannot be random. There should be a writer who would invest time on it. Since everyone knows everything about him, it must be put out in a nice way. Research will not be a problem, because my father is there to share the story," adds the Border-fame actor.

So, would he be interested to play the character of the legend Dharmendra on-screen? "I really have not given it a thought. I know the resemblance is there. It is not only me, but my son can also play the younger part of the character. But everything is dependent on the story," says Sunny, who has worked with his father Dharmendra and brother Bobby Deol in the upcoming film Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se which is slated for release on August 31.
