Sunny Deol on moving on from his fight with Shah Rukh Khan
Sunny Deol said after a while he forgot everything about the matter, and understood it should not have happened in the first place. He said it was childish. As you know, Jawan star Shah Rukh Khan attained cult status after Darr. People went mad over his role of an obsessive psycho lover, Rahul who is crazy over Kiran (Juhi Chawla), and talks to his dead mother on the phone. Sunny Deol played the role of Sunil Malhotra, the main protagonist of the film who is wedded to Kiran (Juhi Chawla). He was upset as he felt that Yash Chopra glorified the bad guy, Rahul, and showed Rahul as weak. Sunny Deol played the role of an Indian Navy commando. At that time, Sunny Deol was seen as the ultimate macho star of Bollywood.
Sunny Deol’s tiff with late Yash Chopra
He earlier said on Aap Ki Adalat that he tried to explain his POV to Yash Chopra. He said he was not satisfied with how easily Rahul stabs Sunil in the film. He was quoted as saying, “He can only defeat me if I can’t see him. If he can stab me while I’m looking at him, then I won’t be considered a commando.” He also said he once tore his pants out of frustration in one of the narrations. After the film, Shah Rukh Khan walked away with all the laurels, and it catapulted him to stardom. The two did not talk for 16 long years. Sunny Deol was not seen at Yash Chopra’s funeral as well. But he did attend the prayer meet of Pamela Chopra.
