When film broke hearts instead of records

It was Sunny Singh’s long-time wish to collaborate with filmmaker-friend Raaj Shaandilyaa. The two had discussed a few projects, but things didn’t work out. Finally, when Shaandilyaa came to him with his co-production Luv Ki Arrange Marriage, Singh knew he would take it up even before he heard the script. “I have always wanted to work with Raaj Shaandilyaa. One or two potential collaborations were getting delayed because of our other commitments. When he asked me if I was up for Luv Ki Arrange Marriage, I said, ‘Whatever you are going to do with me will be quirky. So, let’s do it,’” smiles Singh.

The upcoming ZEE5 family comedy is Singh’s first film since the debacle of Adipurush (2023), which saw him play Laxman to Prabhas’ Lord Ram. The actor admits the first few days after the movie’s release weren’t easy. “It was very disappointing. But you can’t keep dwelling on it. You need to move on. Every film has a destiny, and you cannot do anything about it. Sometimes, even a good script fails at the box office, and at times, an average film makes money. All you can do is be honest to your craft.”

Be it Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2 (2015) or Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety (2018), the actor has largely featured in comedies. While he doesn’t worry about being typecast, he now wants to try his hand at action. “People won’t typecast you if you’re seen in three to four films of the same genre. I get offered serious roles too. I choose a film if the story excites me. If I’m offered a small-budget comedy and I believe people will like it, I’ll do it. On the other hand, if I get an action comedy budgeted at R50 crore, I’ll attempt that too. I’m already doing an action comedy.”
