Sunil had two daughters: Priya and Namrata and a son: Sanjay. A few days ago on his death anniversary, Priya had shared a picture with him along with the caption, “Parents are so precious, always treat them with loving care. You will only know their value when you see their empty chair. Its been 14 years today since his last hug and I miss him everyday.”  

Sanjay will now be seen with Pooja Bhatt, Alia Bhatt and Aditya Roy Kapur in Mahesh Bhatt’s Sadak 2. The film is a sequel to the 1991 original, which starred Pooja and Sanjay as the lead cast. Mahesh, who also helmed the original film, is returning to direction after two decades for this film. He is currently working on Ashutosh Gowariker’s period drama Panipat where he will be seen in the role of Ahmad Shah Abdali. He also has the Hindi remake of Telugu film Prasthanam and Torbaaz in his kitty.
