Gratitude for Rahul Rawail
Sunny expressed gratitude to Rahul Rawail, with whom he began his journey. “I was very fortunate. I started with Rahul. He gave me three beautiful films. Some worked, some didn’t. But till today, people remember those films. I am standing here because of my films.” Sunny emphasized that his passion for acting and his desire to follow in his father’s cinematic footsteps kept him going.
Determination and Love for Acting
The actor revealed that despite the challenges, he never gave up. “I joined films because I wanted to become an actor, not a star. I had seen the films of my father, and I too wanted to do films of that variety.”
