I am yearning to direct a film again, says Sunny

The 57-year-old actor, who would be seen next in Singh Sahab the Great, ventured into direction with 1999 film Dillagi.

‘I am itching to direct a film. There is a director in me, who is desperately wanting to do something. But I am holding it for a year or two. The subject of the film can be anything which strikes me,’ Sunny Deol said.

Singh Sahab the Great, which also stars actress Amrita Rao and newbie Urvashi Rautela, is directed by Anil Sharma, with whom Sunny Deol has teamed up previously for Gadar- Ek Prem Katha, The Hero: Love Story of a Spy and Apne.

‘After a couple of years I am doing a solo film, I am very keen for this film to do well. I am expecting this will let me know what I am going to be doing tomorrow. I have a great belief in the subject as Anil Sharma and I have always given good films,’ he said. The actor said he likes collaborating with the director. ‘Sharma has always come up with the story which I love and we have always challenged each other because he has come up with subjects which are widely different,’ said Sunny Deol.

Some of scenes of the movie were filmed in jail, and the actor said he felt relaxed after coming out if it. ‘The ambience, the way they (prisoners) are disciplined and leashed, makes you feel eerie about it and you want to come out,’ he said.

Sunny Deol may be famous for his action roles and angry one-liners but the actor says he does opt for other genres. ‘Every actor is doing what they are successful with.’
