The astoundingly unpredictable R Balki’s career-graph is about to get another jolt. He is all set to direct his next film . His last directorial was the well-received Akshay Kumar starrer Padman a bio-pic on Arunachalam Muruganantham who made sanitary pads affordable to underprivileged women.
Balki’s new untitled film, a thriller, will feature another Punjabi superstar.
“Yes, Sunny Deol is in my film. I’ve never worked with him. I don’t know why I thought of him. But this was a role that needed a man with an understated machismo. Strong yet vulnerable. A man of a few words whose presence alone makes people pay attention to him. Sunny can command respect without raising his voice or fists. I wanted that personality for this character,” says Balki who will also work with Malayalam superstar Dulquer Salman for the first time in this thriller.
