Sunny Deol and son Karan break down, start crying on the sets of their film 'Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas'
It's not too often that a father is fortunate enough to direct his son's debut vehicle. Naturally then, it's turning out to be an emotional experience for Sunny Deol, who has taken the onus of introducing his son Rajveer (screen name changed to Karan) to Bollywood with Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas. We hear the duo broke down while filming an action sequence in Manali on Saturday.

A unit hand reveals that the intense scene coupled with the challenging weather conditions near Sagoo waterfalls got the better of Rajveer. "Sunny had chosen a location that is at an altitude of over 15,000 feet, with the temperature being -4 degree C. The weather conditions are so challenging that only one shot can be completed in a day. We had to shoot a high-octane action sequence where Rajveer and Saher [Bamba, the female lead] are shown escaping from the villains and had to hang off a cliff," says the source. The trying conditions got too much to handle for the newbie.
"The shot was difficult to begin with. Plus, the retakes took a toll on Rajveer, who finally broke down and rushed to Sunny. Seeing his son in such a state, Sunny too got teary-eyed and told him, 'Sorry beta, but understand that I am doing all this for your career.' They shared an emotional moment, after which Karan put on a brave face and completed the shot."
A source close to Deol adds that the actor doesn't want his son to take the easy way to success. "The taskmaster that Sunny is, he's told Karan firmly that he has to work hard. For the action scenes too, Sunny would do the rehearsals with body doubles, but filmed the final scenes with his son." Deol confirmed the story.
