The 62-year-old Bollywood superstar Sunny Deol on a promotion event of his recent movie ‘Bhaiaji Superhit’ said that he never read movies script in his entire career adding that he is more interested in listening to the storyteller than reading scripts.
“I am a very instinctive person. I hear an idea, a thought and if it is good and I like it, I just jump for it. I don’t go into the detailings of it. Right now, you need to do that but back then film making was different. I never read scripts,” Sunny told state media. “I just hear the idea from the director and go for it. I have always interacted with the story writer and heard the subject because that’s what is going to eventually come over on screen,” he added.
“One never takes it as gamble. I do it because I love it and I’m enjoying the story. Obviously sometimes in the journey you realise the production, the director, writer, or some things are going here and there but you don’t disown it. You don’t run away because it’s everyone’s baby,” he said.
The actor can currently be seen in Bhaiaji Superhit, which also features Priety Zinta and Arshad Warsi. The film is set in familiar territory for Sunny. It’s an action-comedy, but the actor says it does not mean he goes to the sets thinking it will be a cakewalk. “I don’t think I have ever worked with the attitude that ‘This is easy I can do it.’ Hats off to those who say and do it. For me, I need to enjoy it. You can’t be nervous while performing a scene because then you wouldn’t be able to,” it is stated.
“I cannot be a teenager in films. You move accordingly and your experience makes you do certain subjects which you wouldn’t have done when you were younger. As the time goes, you interact and become more aware of certain things. It’ll be stupid if I still want to play a college boy. Besides that nobody would want to make it also. It’s only when the filmmakers know that this actor can pull it off, is when they approach you,” he continued.
Directed by Neerraj Pathak and produced by Chirag Dhariwal, Bhaiaji Superhit releases on Friday.
