SHOCKING! Sunny Deol accused of cheating and forgery by film producers Sorav Gupta and Suneel Darshan: Report

At a press conference earlier this week, Sorav Gupta, a real estate developer turned film producer, alleged that Sunny Deol took Rs 1 crore in advance for a film project in 2016, with a total fee agreed at Rs 4 crores. Gupta alleged that despite repeated promises, Deol failed to commence the project, opting instead to shoot for another film, Poster Boys (2017). Over time, Gupta claimed that he continued to make payments to Deol, totaling Rs 2.55 crores.

"We gave him Rs 1 crore in advance but instead of starting my film, he opted to shoot for Poster Boys (2017) instead. He kept asking me for more money and by now my Rs 2.55 crores is in Sunny ji’s account. He also made me give money to another director, book Filmistan studio, and get an executive producer," Gupta told Hindustan Times.

The accusations took a more serious turn when Gupta alleged that Sunny Deol forged an agreement with his company in 2023. "When we read the agreement, humne dekha ki unhonein toh panna hi change kar diya beech wala, jahan par fees ka amount Rs 4 crores ko badha kar Rs 8 crores kar diya aur profit to Rs 2 crores kar diya," he shared.

Meanwhile, filmmaker Suneel Darshan, known for popular films such as Janwar (1999) and Andaaz (2003), supported Gupta’s claims at the same press conference. Darshan alleged that he too had experienced similar issues with Sunny Deol.

"Sunny Deol acquired rights from my movie Ajay (1996) for overseas distribution and only made a partial payment. The balance payment never came through," said Darshan. He further added, "Later, Sunny requested me to work on a project with him, saying, ‘Have faith in me, help me out’, and got me to pay him again."

An industry source, speaking on the condition of anonymity, supported the allegations against Deol, claiming that the actor has a history of dishonouring commitments with several producers. "He has been a known troublemaker for years. Sunny had given a bound script of a film called Ram Janmbhumi to a producer who created a huge set in Mumbai. Sunny signed the film for Rs 5 crores. But later, he refused to come to the sets and demanded a fee of Rs 25 crores because he had delivered a blockbuster (Gadar 2)," the source told the publication.

In response to these allegations, Sorav Gupta has filed a police complaint against Sunny Deol. "The police issued [Deol] a notice on April 30. His office sent a letter saying he was out of town on the day he was to present himself," Gupta disclosed.

Sunny Deol is yet to react to the claims.
