Sunny Deol moves from ‘Hindustan zindabad’ to ‘I Love New York’

The guy with the heaviest hands in Bollywood will soon be seen serenading Kangna Ranaut in the scenic locales of New York

It seems that after the success of his last rom-com-family-drama, Yamla Pagla Deewana, Sunny Deol is drifting away from the action genre. News is that he has signed a romantic film, I <3 NY, with Kangna Ranaut. The weird-looking title of the film is a symbolic representation of the classic ‘I Love New York’ and will be directed by Radhika Rao and Vinay Sapru, who earlier directed Salman Khan in the not-too-lucky Lucky – No Time For Love.

Though Sunny started his career with a bang as a lover boy in Betaab, his claim to fame in Bollywood was when he bloodied the streets of Mumbai as an action hero in Arjun. He upped the ante by taking on what seemed to be the whole of Pakistan, aided by just a hand-pump, in Anil Sharma’s patriotic pot-boiler, Gadar. Nothing has come close to the success he tasted with that Ameesha Patel-starrer and it seems that his foray into romantic films is an attempt to revive his career as a solo hero. Explaining the unusual name of the film director Vinay Sapru said, “I <3 NY stands for a very old and known saying about New York; most people are familiar with this, as it’s commonly seen on t-shirts, caps or banners. It basically means ‘I love New York’. The film is a romantic comedy on the lines of Chupke Chupke, with a little bit of action choreographed by Tinnu Verma.”

Though it is not clear if I <3 NY is an official remake of the cult Hrishikesh Mukherjee film, it just might be a humble tribute from Sunny to his dad Dharmendra, who won millions of hearts with his cutesy act as the chaste, Hindi-speaking professor masquerading as a chauffeur. This news has amused us no end, and wethink it will be interesting to see the guy with the ‘dhai kilo ka haath’ trying to woo the petite Kangna. Do you think they will look good together on-screen?
