Younger brother Bobby shared a photo where Sunny flashes his trademark grin. “Happy birthday to the greatest soul! A brother! A Father! A Friend,” wrote Bobby.
Bobby’s Instagram posted has garnered a lot of birthday wishes for Sunny.
“A very happy birthday to bhaaiji,” actor Darshan Kumaar commented.
Sunny’s elder son Karan Deol, who made his Bollywood debut last year, also wished the actor. “Happy birthday papa. Love you,” wrote Karan, with a picture of him sitting next to Sunny.
Sunny Deol made his debut as a Bollywood actor in 1983 with Rahul Rawail’s musical superhit “Betaab”. He established his space as an action superstar with Rajkumar Santoshi’s “Ghayal” (1990), which was produced by Dharmendra, and later went on to entertain the audience in numerous films including “Border”, “Damini”, “Gadar: Ek Prem Katha”, “Ghatak”, “Ziddi”, “Yateem” and “Dacait” and “Arjun”.
His power-packed performances were often highlighted by heavy-duty dialogues, memorably “Dhai kilo ka haath” and “Tarikh pe tarikh”.
Sunny also gave direction a shot with “Dillagi” (1999), “Ghayal Once Again” (2016) and “Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas” (2019).
Recently, Sunny opened up about brother Bobby Deol’s 25 years on Bollywood. He said, “I always told him to be disciplined, get up early, be active and do workouts. Bob at that age was more into parties and stuff. I would discourage him from all that. He has grown up. Earlier, he used to be with me on a shoot at times, my dad’s shoot also. He had groomed himself.”
In April 2019, Sunny joined Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and went on to win the Gurdaspur Lok Sabha seat in last year’s general elections.
