Deol's are a misfit in today's Bollywood: Sunny Deol
His father Dharmendra often got compared to a Greek god and the string of action hits he delivered is unmatched till date but actor Sunny Deol feels that in today's scenario his family is a misfit in Bollywood.
The actor, who is known for his larger-than-lifepersona onscreen with action hits like Ghayal, Damini, and Ziddi, is a reclusive in real life and is famous for not attending award ceremonies.
"Our family has been in the industry because people liked our work. We never went for propaganda to promote our films, In fact today is a scenario that we are a misfit in the industry right now. But nobody changes and we are not going to change to that extent," Sunny told PTI.
Sunny, 53, feels that action genre has gone under the knife for all the wrong reasons.
"Action films were not just about action, they were emotional outlets like Hollywood have this films which are larger than life, you just went to see them for the feel good effect. Here directors don't understand that," he said.
"I always did films without thinking if I am ahead of time or not. I still feel that films which were made years back were better than the ones made today," he added.
The actor, who was in the capital to inaugurate Club Fitline's third Health Club admits that "he find most actors to be fit now a days. But the only person I am in awe of is my dad."
The two-time National award winner has not delivered any major hit in the recent times.
"I had a bad phase from 2003 onwards but now I am feeling good and you will be seeing me in a couple of movies. I am not looking at any particular kind of role, I am just looking for a good script to work on," Sunny said.
He is also set to recreate the magic of Apne, the first Bollywood film to feature real life father and sons together which starred him, Dharmendra and brother Bobby Deol.
"Yamla Pagal Deewana will see our family bonding again after Apne but in a more hilarious way and not dealing with serious and emotional issues," Sunny said.
After making his directorial debut with Dillagi in 1999, the actor's next project behind the camera is his home production The Man, an action flick which has been put on the backburner.
It was reported that the lead heroine Shilpa Shetty is too busy with with her marriage and IPL commitments to give dates for the movie.
"We are reworking on the dates and I would not like to comment on it before the filming gets over," Sunny said.
The actor will next be seen in Right Ya Wrong by Subhash Ghai's Mukta Arts which will release in March and promises that he will bring back his action streak once again.
"Pictures are in the making where you will see me again as the action star, but they are in a very initial stage and I would not like to talk about them at the moment," he said.
