Director Neeraj Pathak, who is reuniting with Sunny Deol in Bhaiyaaji Superhit, said the actor is working extremely hard on his role. Neeraj, who made his directorial debut with Right Yaaa Wrong (2010) starring Sunny, said the actor is playing the double role of a desi don and a Punjabi actor from Canada.
“I was going through a lot of story ideas before pitching the right one to Sunny. He liked the idea of Bhaiyaaji Superhit. This is a completely different genre and setting for him as well as me,” said the director.
The first draft of the script started with a single character and there was no double role planned, but Neeraj said that it came in as an after thought. “On further brainstorming, we thought, why not go ahead and make this a double role? Sunny liked the idea and asked me to develop it further,” Neeraj said.
The director who wrote the screenplay of Apne starring Dharmendra, Sunny and Bobby (Deol), said his association with Sunny is more personal than professional. “I love him as a person while he takes care of me as a younger brother and friend.”
