Rahul Rawail to direct Ghayal Returns for Vijayta Films

Sunny Deol, who is planning to revive his home banner Vijayta Films with Ghayal Returns, has roped in his good friend Rahul Rawail to direct the film. Ghayal Returns is the sequel to Sunny's 1990 blockbuster Ghayal, directed by Rajkumar Santoshi.


Earlier Ashwini Chaudhary was to direct the film, in fact a teaser promo of the film was also released with Salman Khan's Ready. But Sunny had a change of heart and asked Rahul to helm the project. Ghayal Returns will mark Rawail's return to Vijayta Films after 28 long years, he had earlier directed Betaab in 1983, which was incidentally the first film produced by the banner.


Sources say that Chaudhary's ouster is because he got busy with another film and didn't have time for Ghayal Returns, which was to go on floors this month.


Sunny and Rawail go back a long way. They have always kept in touch and both have very high regard for each other. Sunny finalised on his Betaab director in a meeting, yesterday afternoon. Rawail dropped by Sunny's office to wish the actor on his birthday and ended up chatting for two long hours. Rahul was in for a pleasant surprise when Sunny asked him to direct Ghayal Returns and was very happy with the offer as it just showed how much Sunny still trusts him.


The script of the film is ready and it has worked out very well. Along with Ghayal Returns, Vijayta Films will also be producing the Yamla Pagla Deewana sequel.
