Sunny Deol is working on the sequel to his 1990 blockbuster film Ghayal to revive his banner Vijeta Films.
Directed by Rajkumar Santoshi, ‘Ghayal; starred Meenakshi Seshadri and Amrish Puri. The film won seven Filmfare Awards, including the best movie award and the first best actor award for Sunny.
However, Deol will not be teaming up with director Santoshi for the sequel and will go with Ashwini Chaudhary instead. Rajkumar Santoshi and Sunny Deol were thick friends who went on to make successful films like ‘Ghayal’, Ghatak and Damini. But when both of them wanted to make a movie on the revolutionary Bhagat Singh, there were cracks in their friendship. While Santoshi made The Legend Of Bhagat Singh, Sunny went ahead with 23rd March 1931: Shaheed and both films released on the same day.
While the original ‘Ghayal’ ended with Deol being apprehended by the police, the sequel will take off from when he comes out of jail.
