Sunny Deol's son Karan is all set to be launched as an actor in a Yash Raj film

After not being on good terms for nearly 20 years, Sunny Deol and Aditya Chopra have let bygones by bygones. The Yash Raj head honcho will be launching Sunny’s son Karan (better known by his pet name Rocky) in one of their upcoming productions.

This follows close on the heels of the recent announcement of YRF taking over the music of Santosh Sivan’s sequel which features the Deols. 

To go back, Sunny and the late Yash Chopra had a huge fight after they did Darr together. Sunny felt that Shah Rukh Khan was given more prominence and Sunny never worked with them again. Although Bobby worked with YRF in Jhoom Barabar Jhoom, Sunny avoided the YRF banner. However after the demise of Yash Chopra, Aditya and Sunny met and they resolved their differences.”

A source says, “Adi has expressed his desire to launch Karan and a deal has been cracked. However the youngster is not bound by any contract by YRF. He will only feature in one film unlike other new actors who have to sign a three-film deal.”

When contacted, YRF folk preferred to deny the development.
