What's next for Sunny Deol after the smashing success of Gadar 2: The Katha Continues (2023), and a promising project in Lahore 1947? From what we hear, the actor will face the camera for Soorya, a crime drama that he had started in 2022. Sources tell us that Deol plans to wrap up Kamal Mukut's production by November after which he will turn to Border 2.

Soorya, directed by M Padmakumar, is an official adaptation of the Malayalam film, Joseph (2018). The remake will see Deol as a retired cop, who gets pulled in to investigate a murder case that leads him to uncover an organ harvesting racket. While the film had originally gone on floors in Jaipur in 2022, the team hopes to regroup as soon as Deol wraps up Lahore 1947. Mukut's son Deepak says, "We have completed over 80 per cent of the film. Sunny will complete the shoot very soon." The two-year wait must not have been easy on the makers, but Deepak says one needs to be patient. "He was busy with other projects, and we were trying to work out the dates. We have enjoyed a wonderful relationship with the Deol family since ages, and it's fine that Sunny couldn't shoot for our film earlier. We understand his compulsions."

Deepak reveals that Deol had watched Joseph after he was offered the remake, and immediately came on board with a simple request - that the film be made as gritty as the original. "Sunny is also involved in the creative process. His relationship with us is far more important [than a film]. We'll wait for him."
