Sunny days are here again

The man with the Iron fist is back again on the silver screens with his newly minted brand extension, Yamla Pagla Deewana 2, starring Djharmendra, Bobby Deol and Sunny himself,  reprising the characters they assayed in the first but with an entirely different plot-line and back story. The direction though rests with new friend Sangeeth Sivan who came o the Deols with his 'Cheers' idea and earned a shot at recreating the same old magic but in a completely new setting-London. One of the AD's working on this project was none other than Sunny 's 21 year old son and the story idea came from his wife Linda/Pooja Deol. For Sunny this is an all out family affair with his brother and father sharing the frames with him while his wife and son helped with the back-end stuff.
Sunny says he always expected 'Yamla Pagla Deewana ' to crack-up the audience and the Deol magic will be at it again in the new film set to release in the second half of this year. On asked why the or…

Veteran actor Dharamendra on his new film Yamla Pagla Deewana 2

Veteran actor Dharmemdra may have completed 52 plus years in the Industry that is celebrating it's centenary year this year but the Yamla Jat claims he is still young at heart and despite the slew of acting awards right through his career, continues to be a learner.

Yamla ,Pagla ,Deewana 2 trailer laiunch at a refurbished swank Sunny Super Sound

Yamla Pagla Deewana, released a couple of years ago,  starring the three Deols Dharmendra, Sunny and Bobby had the audience rocking in the aisles and crying out for more. So Dharmendra and Sunny's production team set out to create another laugh riot with the same cast of characters but with a different storyline from the first. The connection between the two appears to be just the central characters ,which   remain the same. This one is helmed by Sangeeth Sivan who appears to have got more than what he 'cheered' for!

The launch of the first look/Trailer was a grand affair with the entire cast turning out to greet the press with all the fanfare, shor-sharaba of a typical festive scene. The two heroines looked delectable in their respective outfits. Dharam paaji was in his element serenading the media with a slew of shayaris and then wearing his heart on his sleeve while addressing the issues of  Sanjay Dutt  and Salman Khan's  trysts with the law.
The launch of the tr…
