Actor Sunny Deol is a busy man. He’s not just occupied with his work, but also with his son, Karan Deol’s Bollywood debut. “I’m excited for Karan’s debut and that’s what I am working on right now. It is my priority,” says Deol, who will produce his son’s launch vehicle.

Deol’s sons Karan and Rajvir have both expressed their desire to become actors and the proud father says he was not surprised when he got to know of their ambition.

“Obviously, it was not all sudden that Karan wanted to be an actor. Both our sons want to be actors. There is no harm in it and I believe whatever an individual wants to do, he should be encouraged in that direction. If it’s their dream then they should try it but not feel any fear,” says Sunny, whose directorial Ghayal Once Again released earlier this year.

The 58-year-old actor made his Bollywood debut with the 1983 film Betaab and went on to give hits such as Darr(1993), ChaalBaaz (1989) , Ghayal(1990) and Gadar: Ek Prem Katha(2001). He accepts that his sons will have to face more competition in the film industry than he did.

“When we came in the industry, there were no teenagers but now it’s only teenagers who are encouraged to become actors. The competition is always going to be there but you can’t shy away from doing what you wish to do because of the fear,” he says.
