Deols may feature in four films this year
As the success of Yamla Pagla Deewana has proved, the three are better as one. And if the latest reports are anything to go by, this year will see the father-sons combo will feature in at least three films, playing themselves or inspiring characters that resemble their unique dynamics.
The YPD sequel that brings Dharmendra, Sunny and Bobby together on screen is scheduled for June 7. And as TOI had reported, Subhash Ghai has already signed up the trio for a rom-com, Ishq De Maara.
“The film is about a father and his two sons. All three of them are in love and hiding the fact from each other,” says the filmmaker who dashed to London when the Deols were shooting for the sequel to sign them for his family entertainer.
Meanwhile, the director of the YPD sequel Sangeeth Sivan, also has similar plans. The script of Cheers is ready and has been waiting for the last year-and-a-half. “Once Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 is out of my system, I will focus on Cheers,” says Sivan.
Despite its title, Cheers is an emotional story of a son and a misunderstood father and how relationship changes. “Sunny wants to launch both Cheers and Ghayal Returns under the Vijayta Films banner with Dharamji as the producer this year, both scripts are locked ,” says a friend of the Deols.
While Ghayal Returns is Sunny Deol all the way, Cheers revolves around Dharmendra and Bobby. Says Sivan, “If I can write in a in a character for Sunny that will justify his presence, then even he will join his father and brother. Cheers to that!”
