‘Established heroines don’t work with me’

He is also in no mood to mince words about the way the film industry functions nowadays.

‘About time a film of mine was well-received. I am tired of the long non-happening phase. Unfortunately I haven’t had too many releases recently. There are some of my films that are on hold. Hopefully, they’ll be released soon. But let me add, I don’t need to prove myself. I just need good cinema, the kind of cinema I believe in,’ said Sunny.

Sunny, 57, is seen romancing 19-year-old Urvashi Rautela in the film. Why a co-star half his age?

‘We are acting. We are not really husband and wife. If she’s much younger, that’s fine. A lot of wives are much younger than husbands. That’s no secret. And by the way, I am sure Urvashi is not 19 year either,’ said the actor who completes 30 years in filmdom after starting his journey with
in 1983. On the way, he has given hits like Ghayal and Damini.

The actor, who worked with the likes of Dimple Kapadia and Meenakshi Sheshadri, says that the current lot of established actresses are not keen to work with him.

‘I’ve had problems with established heroines. For reasons best known to them, they don’t want to work with me. It’s a fact. The top heroines turn me down whenever I ask them to work with me. They want to work with Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan and Hrithik Roshan. So it’s fine,’ said Sunny. ‘I search for new heroines, like Urvashi Rautela. These girls do not ration dates. While working on a film I don’t have to deal with my heroine’s tantrums.’
