Ghayal Once Again: The real reason why Sunny Deol has written and directed the film

Sunny Deol's acting stint in Bollywood has been full of ups and downs. The actor ended the 90s on a high and continued his magic into the early 2000s - with films like Gadar and Indian setting the Box Office on fire.

However after Indian, Sunny's films failed to impress audiences or register any significant collections. The actor reveals that of of the major reasons why he decided to don the director's hat for Ghayal Once Again was to gain the trust of the audience - which he felt he had lost. Sunny said:

"I have been a part of films which have been iconic and get good TRP's even today. Fortunately, my films have connected with the people and they speak my dialogues even today. In terms of Bollywood in 2000s, I have not been able to come out with good films and that is one of the reasons why I am myself directing Ghayal Once Again."

The Damini actor also confessed that he was not offered any good scripts after Gadar and Indian, which left him with limited choices.

"I always worked with new directors and producers, but after blockbusters like Gadar and Indian, no young directors came to me with subjects which were relevant to the society so I was left out there. I could not get that kind of subject. The industry underwent a change with multiplex culture coming in, but I could not adapt with the changes."
