Sunny Deol, the iconic Bollywood actor who once had a well-known fallout with Shah Rukh Khan following the release of Yash Chopra's 1993 classic, "Darr," recently opened up about his likes and dislikes regarding the celebrated superstar. During his candid appearance on Season 8 of "Koffee With Karan," Sunny provided his candid views on some of his contemporaries in the film industry.
Sunny Deol did not hold back as he expressed his concern about how Shah Rukh Khan had, in his opinion, turned actors into mere commodities. He acknowledged Shah Rukh's undeniable work ethic but voiced his dislike for the transformation he saw in the industry, where actors were being treated as products. Karan's incredulous reaction, exclaiming, "Oh god," captured the intensity of the moment.
Moving on to another Bollywood heavyweight, Akshay Kumar, Sunny Deol had a mix of praise and critique to offer. He also playfully noted Akshay's influence in shaping the industry's obsession with bodybuilding, pointing out that he seemed to want everyone to be a bodybuilder.
The crux of Sunny Deol's famous fallout with Shah Rukh Khan stemmed from their disagreement over the climax of "Darr." Sunny had previously revealed that he engaged in a heated argument with director Yash Chopra, even going so far as to tear his pants in frustration.
