Sunny’s Thoughts on the Clash

When asked about his feelings regarding the clash, Sunny Deol said, “I thought, ‘Okay, my film is releasing, and I haven’t had a hit in a long time.

In the end, both films performed well.”

I said, ‘Please don’t do it if it’s in your control.’ But he told me, ‘No, it’s the studio’s decision.’ They believed that two films could be released simultaneously. I said, ‘Okay, go ahead.’ I could only request, and I couldn’t do more than that.”
