MUMBAI: The heartening response to Anil Sharma’s Singh Saab The Great has put a smile back on Sunny Deol’s face and the sunshine is again visible in Sunny Deol’s career.
News comes that the long-delayed Sunny Deol rom-com I Love New York, directed by the duo Vinay Sapru and Radhika Rao whose release has been postponed three times between 2012 and 2013, is finally being readied for release.
According to a source close to the project, “The producer Bhushan Kumar was waiting to see the outcome of Singh Saab The Great. Now that it has done well enough, I Love New York will be released right after Bhushan’s wife Divya Khosla Kumar’s Yaariya.”
The I Love New York leading lady Kangana Ranaut’s career too was on a downslide. But now with Krrish 3 she is back on the reckoning, and never mind the disastrous Rajjo.
Relieved and happy, Sunny Deol confirms, “We are looking at an early release of I Love New York. It’s a sweet rom-com. The delay has not dated it one bit.And it’s a new genre for me.”
Meanwhile, Anil Sharma, who directed Singh Saab The Great, is jubiliant about the film’s collection and is planning yet another action film with Sunny Deol in the lead.
“I am in Delhi to attend a wedding. Everyone from the hotel receptionist to the guests at the wedding are saying they’ve seen and liked my film, or they want to see it. It’s a good feeling. I’m very happy for Sunny and for myself.”
Not willing to shed too much light on his next venture with Sunny, Sharma says, “It’s two weeks of complete joblessness for me. Then I get back to working on my next film.”
