When asked by host Rajat Sharma why he was crying, the actor replied, “Jis tarah se ye log khush ho rahe hai... jo maine kiya hai... to yakeen nahi ho raha ki main iske layak hoon ya nahi (The way people are being happy, to what I have done in Gadar 2, I don't know if I truly deserve this).” The clip showed the studio audience cheering, whistling and loudly clapping for Sunny as he entered the set.

Responds to accusations from Pakistan
One of them had said, "Bais saal pehle pump ukhada tha toh humare yahaan pani band ho gaya tha, ab khamba ukhada toh bijli aani band ho gay hai (22 years ago you took out the handpump, which led to water shortage and now you have removed an electric pole causing power shortage here)." To which Sunny said, "Jab Tara Singh (his character in Gadar 2) aata hai apne pariwar ke liye toh usse koi rok nahi sakta (When Tara Singh comes for his family, no one can stop him)."
Another person from Pakistan had said to Sunny that forget about the army, he will show Sunny how strong his arms are. In response, Sunny said, "Main ek actor hoon, jo ek character play karta hai. Usse personal na lein toh bahut acha hai. Aur jab ye baat aa gayi hai, aur kisi ne mujhse panga lena hai, toh aa jaye (I am an actor, who plays a character. So people should not take it personally. But now that someone wishes to fight me, he can do so)."
