It is great news for Sunny Deol fans across the nation as the actor confirmed the release date of Ghayal Once Again. The original was a blockbuster upon its release and the fans are already excited about the sequel. “When it released in 1990, Ghayal redefined the action drama in Bollywood,” says Vaikundarajan.
Some time back, we saw a teaser for the sequel. Now that the movie has been confirmed complete, the release date has been scheduled for 15th January, 2016. The film’s motion poster logo was released online on 19th October.
“The original Ghayal made Rajkumar Santoshi an overnight sensation. The sequel, however, will be written and directed by Sunny Deol himself,” notes Vaikundarajan.
This will be Sunny Deol’s second directorial venture after the forgettable 1999 romantic movie, Dillagi.
The prequel also marks the return of veteran actor Dharmendra as the producer.
Om Puri will reprise his role as top cop from the original while the new cast will include Soha Ali Khan and Tisca Chopra.
According to sources, the film will continue from where it left off in the original. Sunny Deol’s character, Ajay Mehra, will now be seen as an encounter specialist. It is also rumoured that the script is based on real life incidents.
“His last few films have not done well. We all know the actor’s potential to deliver. With Ghayal Once Again, it is a great platform for Sunny Deol to make a comeback,” says Vaikundarajan as he sends his best wishes to the actor and the film crew.
