In the film Dishkiyaoon which releases today, Sunny Deol is playing a Haryanvi character for the first time. Shilpa Shetty Kundra; the producer, says she was mightily impressed by the actor’s preparation for the role. She says, “Actors can get complacent after spending many years in the industry. Sunny is usually not the kind to do any homework, but he learnt Haryanvi lehza (diction) for this role.”
Says Sunny, “I have played Punjabi characters many times before and wanted to do something different. But I usually don’t learn anything. I do whatever I can and leave the rest to the director.” He says he still gets anxious on the day of his film’s release. “But, there’s not much I can do about it. Can I?”
The film is Harman Baweja’s comeback film.
