Not averse to playing a baddie on screen: Sunny

Mumbai: Actor Sunny Deol, who has often beaten up the bad guys on screen, is open to playing villain in Hindi movies, but said he was sceptical whether the audience will accept him in such a role.

“I am open to doing any role that is creative and good. Are you all open to see me as a villain? If I become a baddie then I will be too bad,” Sunny told reporters here at a promotional even of ‘Ghayal Once Again’.

Known for his action films like “Ghayal”, “Arjun”, “Ghatak”, Sunny feels that action in Hindi cinema has now become easy and simple.

The 58-year-old actor has hired Hollywood action coordinator Dan Bradley for designing action sequences for the second instalment of “Ghayal”.

“Action in my films earlier was good and it has been believable. For ‘Ghayal Once Again’, I need to bring Dan Bradley as he has done films like ‘The Bourne Supremacy’, ‘The Bourne Ultimatum’. He has done a great job. We got along very well. Let’s wait for the film to release,” he said.

To a query, Sunny said he does action because he gets thrill from it.

“I do action because I am thrilled. It is not difficult to do basic things, but problem is that I have back pain so it gets little difficult,” he added.

“Ghayal Once Again” stars actors Om Puri, Soha Ali Khan and a bunch of new faces.

Sunny said nothing should be read in actress Soha missing from the promotions of the film.

“There is no reason. I would love to have everyone. But today people are tied up with a lot of reasons. Sometimes our schedules do not match. For the promotions of this film, I will be going to different places, visiting the whole country,” he added.

“Ghayal…” is the second directorial venture of Sunny after “Dillagi”.

“I enjoyed writing and directing for this film. This time I was sure that I wanted to write and direct as I had planned it. I had great experience,” he added.

Sunny said he would chalk out his future plans after the release of his film on February 5.

“It is difficult to discuss plans. If things do not materialise then people will say that you did not stand by your words. I am waiting for ‘Ghayal Once Again’ to release. I will decide what to do after its release,” he said.
